Wish I didn't get this app
Tried to find a food diary and symptom diary to keep track during my FODMAPs diet. This was the first one I found so I got it. DON'T PURCHASE THIS APP. The UI is VERY confusing, and took me time to figure out how to use. I had to manually enter every single one of my foods and supplements, because somehow their database didn't have basic items like Oolong Tea and Probiotics. I lost my progress a bunch of times because of the confusing UI (it slows you to enter another food at the same time as you're filling out fields to enter a different food. Totally unnecessary and just makes it confusing). The design on the check items makes no sense (you're only allowed to press the literal check, and not the entire line or the name of the food). The tutorial was useless an didn't help me get a first grasp on the usability of the app. SAVE YOUR TIMR AND MONEY and download Cara instead. I found it after not believing this **** is the best thing out there and was so surprised to find a good app for free to do the exact same thing. If the app developers want to get it together they should run a user group and hire a real UI/UX designer instead of trying to build an app without paying attention to the inbox and user. Boooooo.
This app helped me figure out what was causing my GI issues. I logged a couple weeks of food and voila, gluten and dairy are my culprits!
One helpful hint to anyone buying the app: when logging food, make sure all the ingredients are listed. If gluten is the problem but every time you eat something with gluten you just say "pizza" instead of saying "pizza" and then listing all the ingredients such as flour, oil, etc. you won't be able to figure out what the problem is. Logging ingredients makes everything easier.
A note to the app developers: you guys are awesome. Seriously, this app is amazing. I just have a couple of suggestions. Maybe a more clean/modern user interface? But that's not necessary; the app works great as is.
I have severe Ulcerative Colitis and struggle with flares and keeping my diet strictly in line. My doctors have been advising me to keep a food and symptom journal for years. This is so much easier to just plug in the details and not have to re-write everything down or try to remember. It has helped me be more detailed in what I record and figure out patterns based on what I am eating and the results. It has also been very helpful when seeing my doctors or staying in the hospital to be able to give exact info. About BMs, foods, meds, etc. I have and will continue to highly recommend this app. to people with any chronic health issues.
