Reviews

Reviewer: Barbara T, asthma patient, Boston, MA, USA
Review: “I love that the app sends me reminders so that I no longer forget to take my meds. I can see how many times I use my rescue inhaler and keep track of my peak flows for my pulmonologist…“One of my favorite features on the app is all the informative articles it provides. Now, I always feel that I am up to date on the latest asthma care. I have found that not many other mobile health studies do this.”

Reviewer: Jennifer S, asthma patient and former paramedic, Monterey, CA, USA
Review: “Initially, I was focused on helping out other asthma sufferers by participating in this study, but I soon realized how helpful it was for me…I can now recognize patterns in the peak flows and how taking my medicine affects these patterns. I also really like that the app is not a standalone app, but that it is linked to a health study. As a former paramedic, I recognize the importance of data collection for medical studies and I’m so glad that I can contribute to this one.”

Reviewer: Michael K, asthma patient, Evansville, IN, USA
Review: “My favourite feature is the environmental data. I’m really affected by pollen and knowing the air quality helps me figure out what kind of day I will have. I also find the charts on doctor dashboard very handy for my physician. I only see him every three months, but with the app, I can gauge my asthma daily and answer my doctor’s questions more accurately.”
