Many doctors recommend Asthma patients to keep a daily journal to keep track of asthma symptoms, potential triggers, and medications. It helps doctors diagnose the cause of asthma and prescribe the most effective treatment. But, the paper and pencil based journals are hard to keep, and very difficult to sort through during the few precious minutes doctor spend with the patient in an office visit. The Asthma journal app changes that.
Each journal entry is a comphrensive questionnaire designed by doctors. The patient can fill it out in his leasure time. You can also change the date to create a journal for a day you missed.
A key part of our goal for the asthma journal app is to create a personal health dashboard for the patient. You are able to see all your journals at glance, deciper the the trends, and adjust behavior accordingly to live more healthy.
The Asthma Journal application connects your iPhone to your personal account in Google Health (go to the "Tools" tab in the app). After the connection is established, the app automatically sends newly created journal entries to your Google Health account. You can then chart the data, and share it with family / friends / doctors via Google Health's built-in visualization and sharing features.
Finally, our app also provides you the latest news on Asthma research, prevention, and treatment. Those news stories are aggregated from all over the Internet, and they are updated daily. You can read the news article on your phone, and even share stories with friends on social networks such as Facebook.

Asthma Journal Pro
When I posted my previous review of this product, I thought one could not customize the medications and triggers list, but it turns out that you can--it's just hard to figure out. Instead of being able to add new medications and triggers through the daily journals screens, you have to go to "info" at the bottom, click on medications or triggers, and then add new ones. Not very intuitive, but at least you can do it. So it has almost all the capability I'd like to see, just not in the most intuitive form.
One other thing that would be nice to have: an inhaler counter, so that one can keep track of how many puffs one has used in one's inhaler(s), and so one can know how many are left. Also, it would be good to be able to keep track of more than one inhaler (I have two I use daily).
