Ratings and Reviews
Great idea but execution is poor
As a new ostomate I'm after plenty of advice and I applaud the sentiment behind the app. Unfortunately the navigation is really clunky and there's nothing unique here i.e. The information in the app is less comprehensive than the hospital leaflets I was sent home with. The videos are easily searched. I've not tried the 'ask an advisor' section but in the UK at least there is excellent support from stoma nurses and Reddit has an active forum (more so than this app and the forum looks awful embedded in the app). Finally the T&Cs say there should be a marketing opt out at registration but this was nowhere to be found. If there is a commercial angle to the app then I would be extremely upset to receive marketing emails.
I feel bad criticising what was in principle a very good idea but an app needs to stand alone in terms of functionality as something more than a website. I don't see anything here that would make this my first port of call for advice.
Great App for Ostomates!
This is a great app for Ostomates and people affected by Ostomy surgery.
A neat little travel feature that has a pre-worded message about the user having an ostomy and needing a medical professional to attend if a body search is required. This can be translated at the tap of a button to the language of the country that the travelling Ostomate finds themselves in.
Excellent advice on all aspects of ostomy - pre- surgical, what to expect, post surgical and living with a Stoma. Colostomy, ileostomy and urostomy are covered.
A forum to share advice, tips and connect with Ostomates around the world is a brilliant feature on this app - a Global ostomy community in one place.
Being mobile, you can keep your ostomy advice close by when on the move and if needed you can ask the ostomy nurse a question for personal advice.
For any Ostomate this app is well worth having on your smart phone or tablet.
