ZYRTEC® ALLERGYCAST® | Pollen Count Tracker
By McNeil-PPC, Inc
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Wondering how today’s allergy forecast will affect your seasonal allergies? Are your seasonal allergies so bad that you always check the pollen count and allergy map before you head out?
The ZYRTEC® ALLERGYCAST® app helps you track your local pollen index each day and see how pollen might really make you feel with ALLERGY IMPACT. It’s like a real-feel allergy forecast for your allergies.
How ALLERGY IMPACT Works
Unlike static maps and figures, ALLERGY IMPACT analyzes weather information from 41,000 zip codes, search and social media trends to tell you how the pollen count may make you feel. It uses multiple factors to determine whether or not the pollen count could affect your allergies. If the ALLERGY IMPACT for the day is higher than the pollen count, you might feel allergy symptoms like sneezing and itchy eyes more than you’d expect. If it is lower, your allergies might not feel as bad as the pollen count suggests that day.
Here is how ZYRTEC® ALLERGYCAST® with ALLERGY IMPACT can help you better manage your day:
• Daily ALLERGY IMPACT and pollen count to help you plan your day.
• Hourly, 10-day weather, and allergy forecasts in one place.
• Enhanced symptom tracking to help you learn what is making you sneeze.
• Multiple profiles to track your symptoms and those of loved ones.
• Customizable notifications alert you when pollen is high in your area.
• Updates on how pollen is affecting other allergy sufferers in your area.
What's New in Version 4.0.5
- bug fixes and enhancements
This used to be a great app till several months ago when location settings stopped working. Also notifications stopped coming in although I had everything set properly. So I deleted and re-installed a few times. Still didn't work. I installed it again last week, and so far Location is working, wish I could say the same for notifications. STILL NOT getting them! Please please please fix this so notifications will work! There's much to love about this app if the location settings and notifications would work.
Data migration fails
Every time I open the app it says migrating data. And then after several minutes I get a message (repeated messages, actually) that says data migration failed because the server is down. Every. Time. It's frustrating, because it blocks the screen while it says it's migrating my data, And then it fails anyway. What's going on? Where and why is it trying to migrate my data? And why is it failing every single time? I'm not sure how accurate the numbers are either. They conflict with reports from local agencies. I'm questioning the usefulness of this app anymore.
Ok, difficult to read
The app is nice for a quick overview. It's very basic and doesn't allow for customizing the background, the text is very small and the screen doesn't rotate when you turn your phone.
I would give is app 5 stars if the above was addressed.
The orange background with small text, makes it very difficult to read. The app designer should look at color theory. Black text on white background or the inverse has the best contrast. Yellow and orange background with white and light colored text is the least amount of contrast, making it very difficult to read.
Easy solution- allow the user to change the background and text color.
