What's New in Version 3.5.5
Improved weather feed failure handling.
Fixed a few bugs.
Packed with Features!!
I was a little worried after reading a review where someone said there was no headache diagram like the screenshots showed, but I found it! The headache diagram IS there, but you have to go to the "more metrics" menu and select the head diagram to have it show up in your diary. There are so many features with this app that it's going to take me a while to figure it all out. That's a good thing!! In the meantime, I'm still able to use the basics of this app to track multiple health issues that involve different body systems. Even better, as I learn more about the app's features, I can go back and edit past entries to bring them up to speed. The photo feature is brilliant. I was able to snap a photo during a bad flareup, describe what was happening using the app's description option, add my own notes, and attach the photo to the diary entry. Now, when I pull up that entry, it's all in one spot. Absolutely perfect. I can't wait to show my rheumatologist on Thursday! This app was well worth the money. Very well done.
I've been using the app for a few weeks now. I also downloaded 2 other similar apps that I have been using at the same time. I really like this app a lot. I have tried several similar type apps for tracking pain etc over the past few years but have never found one that I liked enough to stick with using it like I do this app. I really like the Weather tracking feature of this app!! I have Fibro and widespread Arthritis which is directly effected by the weather and I live in Central Florida where we have almost daily severe thunder storms through out our long summers. The Weather feature of this app captures every detail of my weather. Especially for me the Barometric Pressure. I love the app. (I deleted the other 2 trial apps!!)
Thank you for a great app
Using this app to track pain is easy, I've been using it since April 2011 and have almost 1000 entries. When the pain is really bad it takes seconds to record locations, type, and remedy. My docs like the reports and and I like being able to customize them for neurology or physiatrist. Each update is a true upgrade in functionality and the developer truly cares about the quality and usefulness of this product.
Apr 2015. Still using after 4 years and the amount of entries is valuable. Highly recommend for chronic pain conditions. Excellent tool for helping to get new doctors to understand the depth of your situation. Show them your phone and let them scroll thru, print what they want. Love this app!!
