Reviews

Reviewer: Canadian Digestive Health Foundation (CDHF), Canada
Review: “Patients who provide their physicians with accurate information about their health status, get better care. It’s that simple. However, when you are asked to report symptoms, medications and bowel patterns, you are likely relying on your memory. In some cases, this means trying to recall very specific details about your health that could be weeks (or even months) old. That’s tough to do accurately. It doesn’t have to be that difficult. The Canadian Digestive Health Foundation (CDHF) has developed a sleek and powerful smartphone app to help you track and share that critical information. We’re proud to introduce you to ‘Gi BodyGuard’. With a few quick clicks, this free app for iPhone and Android empowers you to quickly, privately, and intelligently create extensive, up-to-the-minute summaries to share with healthcare teams at your next appointment. … With the added functionality of reminders for drinking water, taking medications and renewing prescriptions, you are ready to communicate effectively with your physician, to regain and maintain your good health.”

Review: “Positive: great layout; easy to navigate; visually appealing; the handy random factoids that appear on the bottom of the main screen are a plus. Could be added or changed: could use a little more depth to the meal-plan section (ie, when choosing food); it would work better if it could give nutrition information from their stored database of listed foods (other basic free calorie-counting apps have this handy ability). The addition of a mood-tracking feature would be beneficial. Overall:this would be my first choice in a list of helpful journal-keeping apps, even though it could use a few tweaks to the features already offered (such as the suggestion of putting nutritional information in with their database of food items).”
