What's New in Version 2.0.9
The quiet path beckons.
See the goose chase wayward chicks?
To walk is to live.
Our neighbor Marty walks between 7 and 12 miles. Every day. We see him on our way to school, in foul weather and fair. Marty is in his eighties.
Aunt Jen lives alone and gets around on her two feet. She walks along busy streets to the bank, to the diner, to the market...several times a week. She clocks in about 3 miles each trip. Aunt Jen is in her nineties.
Beloved Edie lives with cancer. She walks her dogs around the field twice a day. Every possible day.
Walking around, moving your body is the very best medicine for heart and soul. Even if your knees are stiff or your back is complaining, try your very hardest to keep moving. Go slow. Observe this one beautiful and magnificent day. And remember, "motion is the lotion" that keeps things moving smoothly!
• Import steps, heart rate and sleep data into factors from Apple Health
• Improved data backup/restore engine
• More stability improvements and bug fixes
Finally, as we wind down our 2.0 version numbers, we would like to thank everyone for your support, kind words, thoughtful critique, and general goodness of heart.
So far using the free version
So far I'm using the free version to test it out. It has a lot of what I need in an app, I have been looking for something like this for a long time. After a week or two, if I like it, I will need to upgrade to the paid version. 10 factors may not be enough for anyone really, even if they are tracking one symptom. I'm trying to track a lot of symptoms as well. The one thing I feel this is missing after a few days of using it is being able to sync with food tracking apps and menstrual cycle tracking apps. I like that it will sync with Apple health to get sleep and exercise data but would be great if it could also sync with food as well. You can use high dairy or high sugar or high carbs as factors but inputting your food directly into an app (for instance a calorie counter) could also indicate when something has high fat or high salt, etc. I think it would be easier for the developers of they allowed it to sync rather than adding in complete food tracking to this app, especially since most food tracker apps already have a database of food. Overall I think this app is pretty well designed and had high potential for the future.
Fix the "Record Symptoms" Page...
This is a great app. The one issue is that when you are on the "Symptoms" page and click on a button for the time of day you want to log (AM, Mid, PM), it usually takes you to the wrong time of day.
For instance if its the evening and I tap an AM slot to log my morning, it takes me to PM page for the "Symptom Record" log. It's hard to notice you are on the wrong page at first because they look identical and you assume it took you to the time you tapped on. I have used this app for months and I still make this "mistake" nearly once a day.
Please fix it to where when you tap on an "AM" slot, it takes you to the "AM" page. Otherwise a great app.
UPDATE: I recently opened my charts in an Excel graph and WOW the chart display on the app is pretty misleading. It only shows you a few blocks of data vertically, so you could feel very different day to day but the app will round it up or down and display a nearly flat graph. Open your charts in Excel to see the real data presented accurately
Nearly useless now
When I first got this app, it was pretty simple and just tracked my symptoms throughout the day. I like that it's broken up by AM, PM, Mid, and Night. I needed several more trackers than just ten so I paid for the upgraded app. Since the new update, I can't add symptoms if the time frame has passed by even a minute. I forgot to track my AM symptoms today, but now that it's midday, I can't add AM symptoms. So that's pointless. I also can't print a graph of my trackers, and it's difficult to see the the little bubbles on the report. My doctor never looks at it because he can't read it, I have to interpret it for him. Unless the ability to track all days symptoms comes back, I'm done with this app.
