What's New in Version 2.1.5
In this version, we've added the ability to zoom on your photos while reviewing them. We've reduce the size of the app install, squashed some bugs, and made lots of other minor improvements to the user experience.
Solid and easy to use
I've been using this app for over two years for tracking migraines/neurological issues. While the app won't do the analytics for you — it's not going to say "X drug seems to be more effective than Y drug in relieving your pain" or "wine always gives you a headache" — even the act of tracking symptoms and factors will help you have those realizations for yourself. My specialist has thanked me for being so diligent in my tracking and has been able to use the data in conversations with my insurance company. I highly recommend Symple.
That said, there are two changes I would make to the app if I could. One, an option to turn off the inspirational quotations that appear every time you log symptoms. If you log diligently, they become repetitious very quickly. I can't imagine this would be a difficult update to make. Two, some sort of dark option/theme. Even with my phone fully dimmed, it's very frustrating to have to look at the white background so I can log light sensitivity! Inverting the colors on my phone makes some parts of the app too hard to read during logging. This is a feature I would pay for if needed.
I've been using this app for about a week now and so far it's been great. It helps motivate me to eat right and pay attention to my body. I have MS and recently started the Wahls diet so this app is awesome to keep me on track with my diet. I'm looking at getting an Apple Watch to help motivate me to exercise.
I bought the paid version, which I rarely do, and it's worth it to customize and add symptoms and factors. Highly recommend it.
I am still learning exactly how to get the most from the app, I'm very impressed with the ease of use. Having multiple chronic autoimmune issues doing your own journal can be overwhelming, and most of the time we start out with good intentions but ultimately fail as it takes to long. This is so much easier. And you can verbally dictate your personal notes. Love it.
