Technologically Deficient/Poor Support
I am very disappointed in the lack of device updates that would work with this app to track ones health. It has been my go-to app for tracking exercise, sleep, etc. but I recently purchased a Fitbit Charge HR (a very popular and mainstream device) with anticipation that it would work well with WebMD, only to find it will not sync my steps, a major part of my health focus. The only Fitbit device listed is the Flex so I had to choose that and it syncs sleep and at one point was syncing steps but then mysteriously stopped syncing the steps and only captures sleep now. I have made no less than three support requests about this issue and have been completely ignored. Support is my #1 feature in an app and the developers ability to respond and keep up with technology and WebMD epically fails here. So instead of a 4 or 5 star I can only give a 1 until they get their act together.
This app is incredible it reminds you to take your meds and when to refill them that's a blessing especially for someone with memory problems! And it has a medicine recognizer wow! Remember the books that were pricey for this info!
Also it has the latest health issues and almost a medical encyclopedia as well as symptom checker,videos and you can always ask questions and get answers!
Thanks to all who help get n keep this app up n going it's an incredible help for me n my family!! Get this app you won't believe how helpful and you'll wonder how you ever got along without it!!!
Reliable Health Info w/ a Nice Design
The essential in a mhealth app is that the information is reliable. The WebMD info is reliable. This app has a nice design with superb features that places the key tools for managing your health and improving your lifestyle.
As I live in France certain features aren't practical, i.e. healthcare facilities, physicians and pharmacies. Technically the app is fast, connects seamlessly to the WbMD website, and has an intuitive design.
It's limitations are the other apps and devices you nay want to connect. Hopefully they'll expand this feature. But if you want reliable health information this is one of the best mHealth apps available.
