What does the app do?

The app is a general diary or tracking app that has provision for the user to track a variety of things such as the content of meals, drinks, medications and  supplements. It also allows you to track a range of symptoms (nausea, headache, diarrhoea, stomach pain, bloating, eczema, hayfever, heartburn and gas), bowel movements, energy and sleep quality. For a more detailed description of the app, see Google Play or App website and for a detailed review, see Reviews.

PROS CONS 

✔ Comprehensive and customisable food and symptom diary. Can also log medication, stress, exercise, bowel movements, energy, sleep quality and environmental factors.

✔ Customisable algorithm that looks for foods that are associated with certain symptoms.

✔ Premium version gives you much more detailed analysis including analysis for ingredients.

✔ Creates a PDF report.

✔ Comes with a food database and barcode scanner.

✔ Extensive user manual.

✔ Data syncing.

✔ Appears to get regular updates.

✘  Login is troublesome — very challenging to select a username and password to meet the stipulated criteria.  

✘ Adding bowel movements is not simple enough. 

 It understandably works better when ingredients are entered, and many foods are in the database with their ingredients. For foods not in the database it can be time consuming entering all individual ingredients (however these can be saved).
