What does the app do?
This app allows users to record information related to their gut or bowel health such as stool (poo) details (form, colour, urgency, bloating), pain (location and severity), food and drinks consumed, weight, exercise, medications and medical history. Users can also set reminders to take medications and to renew prescriptions, and send (via email) a summary report to physicians or other medical professionals involved with their care. For a more detailed description of the app, see on iTunes and for a detailed review, see Reviews.
For the complete app description, go to Google Play (android) or the app website.
✔ Log symptoms, stool frequency and consistency, pain, diet, exercise and weight.
✘ Useable after some time and effort - log-in information is not immediately obvious and spans many screens which is time consuming. No user manual.
