What does the app do?
This app allows users to keep track of, and learn about their migraines by recording the nature of each migraine episode: when it happened, intensity and, location of the pain, triggers and treatment. When enough migraines have been logged, the app can tell users when they might expect to get another migraine. The app can also automatically track your sleep, alert you of high and low pressure weather, alert your buddies when you have a migraine and remind you to take medication.
For the complete app description, go to Google Play (android) or iTunes (apple).
