Love it! I use it every day!
I downloaded the app because it was rated as a top allergy diary. I realized it’s just a list for you to add. Not only that, how are you suppose to enter chicken soup made from scratch with a barcode?? I have doubts about their perfect 5 star reviews.
Like how I can add custom tags and export option! Only gripe is the csv export adds multiple columns when you have more than one item per type. Such as adding multiple symptoms at once. It should add new rows, not columns. Makes the csv unusable and spent long time cleaning up the data.
After spending tedious time inputting diurnal food and dietary supplements that I take on my iPad I learned that this application does not such with my other devices. The Company processed synching over a year ago. Without synching, it is worthless.
Great App. Wish I could keep up logging my info and not do it intermittently. But that’s my problem, not the app’s.
This is easy to use and has lots of things to document. Really gives the whole view of lifestyle.
Very easy to use. Love the charts for correlation, though I have not yet found one unfortunately
I purchased this app to help track my diet for possible food intolerance because I really liked the idea of the ease of scanning a barcode to automatically add what I ate. (I usually don't pay for apps, I thought the convince was worth ~$3.) The issue though is that the amount of foods logged and connected to a barcode is not that impressive. Almost every food I've scanned, I've had to create my own instance of... On top of that there are not many "ethnic" foods already existing in the food library which is a real bummer. I am not sure I will continue using the app b/c it's ended up really time consuming to log every food.
I like that the symptoms can be rated 1-10, and you can create, edit and sort your own symptoms. I love that in addition to tracking food, water intake, sleep and symptoms you have the ability to track energy levels, sleep, water, bowel movements, stressors and environment, and others. The bar code reader is amazing and the database learns them if they weren’t identified before. I still haven’t found whatever is affecting me but I think the App deserves 9/10.
I just started using this up two days ago and so far I am extremely impressed. Still learning my way around it, but it is very user-friendly and incredibly well put together. Thank you!
Great app that is easy to use. Easy to navigate. Has everything that you need.
I’m loving it, so easy to keep track of eating patterns and symptoms. The best feature is the ability to easily email the pdf to my dietitian for review 10/10
Having used this app for 5 days I’m finding it easy to use which helps me to continue recording my food, drink and medication intake which will hopefully lead to discovering what causes my facial edema. I especially like the bar code scan feature. Highly recommend this app!
Having gone through years of trying to find a common denominator with what particular food items were upsetting me, this app pointed me in the right direction after a few weeks of entering data. I’m so impressed with the functionality of the app. It has great ease of use and you can decide how much detail you enter. Entering data on the move is easy and if it’s used consistently for a period of time, you will soon see patterns forming. It helped me to discover that I am Lectin intolerant. After years of dietitians and various diets including FODMAP. Another plus is the technical support. I raised a question late one night and received a response immediately. Awesome customer service. Well worth the small price - if only I found it three years ago!
I was diagnosed with a auto-immune disease & so many Dr’s kept asking me to keep a food/symptom diary but its so difficult & i’d always forget my diary & pen to write things down! This app is so convenient & being able to email the report as a PDF is so easy & a god-send!!! Thank you to whoever invented this app!
Worth the $5
This app is simple to use. I love the way you can customise symptoms. The convenience of having this on my phone has greatly assisted me in tracking the relationship between the foods I eat and the symptoms I experience.
An absolute waste of time, great concept but a great let down
This app is fantastic. Was recommended to download by my nutritionist and I am so happy with it. I love the report you can email to yourself (or your nutritionist or doctor) to show your symptoms and what may be causing them.
Easy to use. Well Presented. Looking forward to collating my results.
This app is very flexible to track the symptoms that I want to track! The best app available for troubleshooting dietary sensitivities!
I am deleting this app as I can’t seem to actually enter anything in spite of reading the quick start and the user guide
Love this app to track foods and symptoms. The pdf report is an awesome feature. Have not used it long enough (only a few days) to get reliable information correlating foods with symptoms but fully expect that feature to be useful based on what I’ve seen so far. Only holding back 5 stars because there isn’t an easy way to trend symptoms ie graphical representation over time of number or features of bowel movements/ symptoms. This would be very useful in tracking IBD flares.
I was recently diagnosed with gastroparesis, a chronic and awful condition where your stomach doesn’t work the way it’s supposed to and food is delayed from Emptying into your intestines due to lack of motility. Was told to write down the foods I eat and symptoms they cause. To keep a journal. So I went searching for an app so I could do it on my phone as that is much easier than lugging around a notebook. I was delighted when I found this app. I thought maybe I would find an app that came a little close but that I would have to repurpose it for my need. But this app is exactly what I needed. It’s wonderful. And I love that I can track medications as well since we are having to try different ones. And then the PDF that I can send to my doctor or print out is just the bees knees. Thank you a million times for making this app. It’s awesome. I may recommend it to my fellow friends in an online support group I’m a part of. 10K Strong. I bet they will love this app as much as I do. 💜💜💜🤗🙏🙌👾👽😻
I appreciate the amount of work that has gone into this app. Have only been using a few weeks but have been religiously logging my events and outcomes. Love how you can adjust the parameters and see correlations. That would be great if there were an online app and all instances of the app would sync across platforms. Otherwise, hats off top the developers - it beats having to enter all the information in a spread sheet - this is a timesaver!
I like the app overall, but there needs to be more options when adding recipes to the database.
Did I review this before? It’s great. Needs to be able to store data on cloud bcs I lost 2 years of data when my phone crashed. Other than that it’s been incredibly helpful in my healing.. I’d also like to be able to copy an entry to add it to another users day- I added my daughter as she is also healing from Lyme & mold but it gets very tedious. It would be helpful to be able to post a meal in my account then copy and add to hers instead of adding everything all over again. No real complaints tho. I use this daily. Love it. Very detailed and helpful and I like that we can add notes to everything. I’d also like to see a tab for weather. It would be incredibly helpful to have a few more colors- like the green for medications and red for symptoms is helpful but maybe add a light color for supplements and a different color for environment etc. thanks! —————— I love this app. Super helpful to keep tabs on what I eat and resulting symptoms. I have chronic Lyme, black mold toxicity, many food and chemical sensitivities. This is helping me to identify triggers and what foods specifically give me which symptoms. I've been adding a whole lot of foods etc so the database is growing.
Glad to add my wholesome choices to the database to support the app. Easy to add items. Hope you continue to develop the product as it has great potential.
Nice to keep track of food and symptoms but not the easiest way to go about it. Developers don’t want to figure out a way to make searching easier despite everyone complaining about the same issue. Analytics is lacking substance. Can’t actually SEND an email PDF of diary because the word “send” is grayed out. This is the same for sending an email to request help. I wasted sooo much time getting this set up for my symptoms and foods. With no ability to share with my doc, this is useless.
So happy I found this app! 5 stars all the way! Previously I was keeping track of my food intake on a google doc to figure out some health issues. This app actually makes it fun to keep track of your symptoms and general mood all day long. It’s brought a lot of awareness around my food choices and subsequent mood shifts. I love that this app doesn’t count calories. It’s so much more interesting to remove the concept of high or low calories and just focus on how a certain food makes you feel! Way more intuitive than tedious calorie counting. I think using this app will lead to weight loss although it’s not the primary intent of the app.
Having tried paper based logging of diet & environmental factors etc using notes and memos I was pleased to find this app which also offers some analytics and pdf export of logs. There are a couple of potential improvements which I'll suggest to the developer. This is one of the better apps I have purchased.
Been using track my symptoms for weeks. So user friendly, has absolutely everything I need to track progress on my fodmap diet. And to make things even better- I can easily export all the data to a PDF file to give to my nutritionist. Cannot recommend this app enough!
Excellent app. Very intuitive, builds memory quickly. Very simple to document everything, and data is displayed in an easily interpretable format. Reports to my doctor are far more specific than before. I was shocked to realise how inaccurate my estimations were previous to this app. A must for anyone with ongoing health / dietary conditions. Thanks guys!
Brilliant easy to use
Great app. Is it possible to input monthly cycle as this can have an impact on symptoms? Otherwise, love it!
This is just great, everything is on it, lists of symptoms, movements, etc. I can track the bad days again what I ate when. It's great for keeping track of my IBS. Then I print it all out & give it to my herbalist to access me. GREAT APP
I wanted a food diary, not a calorie counter - and this app fits the bill nicely! Does what it says on the tin...
Have been using this app for about 6 weeks now. Very simple and easy to log food etc. The app is almost seamless and you can export any data. I had a small problem with the app after an update, but got on to the company and they had a fix released within 24hrs (would have been shorter owing to apple time constraints in reviewing updates). The developers are human beings, they answer emails and genuinely want this app to be perfect. Great service, great app, good show.
Not great everything I ate was given as a likelihood for a symptom
