What's New in Version 1.2
Update to 1.2
Shows temperature and pollen count, but no levels. Doesn't take into account the different types of asthma (mine is cough variant brittle), or the fact that every persons asthma is different; and the library is extremely basic. Asthma UK's website would be a better place to find information. As for directing people to 'asthma specialists', how many of these so called specialists have any training in controlling asthma?
I note complaints over lack of PEFR but it's a simple concept with daily prompt (or as set by user) with an easily accessible ACT, which can be emailed. Additional info is useful. Have only trialled in Demo Mode.
PEFR plotting would definitely be useful in further updates.
Needs to be more interactive. No way to log why asthma was good or bad. Pollution and pollen count does not update. No way to go back and update previous days if you forgot, even on website. No feedback option on app or website
