Review: Recommended by the developer, the Parkinson Association of the Rockies (PAR), USA . Also recommended by more than 40 other US Parkinson’s groups on Facebook-among them, the American Parkinson Disease Association, Washington Chapter, and the Parkinson Center of Oregon (PCO). PAR states on Facebook about this app. "PD Life is the first app assisting Parkinson's patients and caregivers with real-time management of the disease."

Review: “The app seems good, with plenty of reminders and statistics on how I feel. It would be good if it could be translated into my language, Swedish.”
