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.” Barbara T, asthma patient, Boston, MA, USA | http://apps.icahn.mssm.edu/asthma/participant-stories/

AsthmaTrack

AsthmaTrack
developed by dangerDown LLC, USA


Support to deal with symptoms/disabilitiesTrackers

English / French / German / Italian / Spanish

Cost: £1.49 [approximately €2.15, $2.32]

Allows a user with asthma to record event information (such as environmental conditions, symptoms, treatments, and vital signs) that may be relevant to asthma.

“I’m using asthmaTrack, which is a bit better than AsthmaMD. You can customise your zones, etc, but it does have an annoying quality—you have to put in ‘None’, ‘Light’, ‘Medium’, etc, for symptoms. I’d rather have a number rating, or something else, as, often, I don’t feel like this allows enough discrimination. I’d never put 'Severe’, unless I was having a full-on attack. But this leaves me with only ‘Light’ and ‘Medium’—not really enough for a proper description. Plus, you can’t add triggers (and it doesn’t have all of mine). But, otherwise, it is OK. It does have a proper chart that records your actual peak-flow (PF) readings, rather than weird estimates. Also, it has sections in which you can write what you like, so you can say more about symptoms, triggers, etc. I’ve not yet found an asthma app I’m really happy with, though. I wonder if any of the developers of the existing apps asked asthmatics what they wanted?” Asthma UK Forum, UK | Source is no longer available

Cost: Free
App to help patients manage their health with conditions including Kidney Transplant, Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF), Vasculitis
Article on patients involved from the Irish Lung Fibrosis Association in developing the app

“With your help we at patientMpower have developed an electronic health diary (an “app”) which can be used by people with lung fibrosis to help them keep track of their symptoms and lung health.

The patientMpower app works on any smartphone or tablet device (like an iPad). The idea is that you use your mobile phone to keep a diary of various symptoms and other factors related to your lung health. For example, you can keep track of the number of steps walked each day or your level of breathlessness. If you have a connected spirometer, the breathing test information will also be recorded and the app can be used as a reminder to take your medicines each day. When attending clinic appointments, it may be useful to have this type of information to hand so you can tell the doctor or nurse about issues that may have been troubling you.

“A group of ILFA volunteers have tested the app with home spirometry in a user experience survey and given us useful feedback on their experience of the app. patientMpower want to thank these volunteers for their help in guiding us on how we can improve the app and its use with measurement devices (like home spirometers).”
