Self-monitoringTrackers

English

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

Intended to help people with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) track and monitor their daily activity levels.

“The app is a fantastic way for people to feel in control in managing their condition. Having the app on their phone makes their charts and monitoring information more portable and accessible—which, we hope, will encourage more meticulous use of this self-monitoring tool. The information recorded can then be discussed with their clinical teams, and the data used to inform treatment plans. This makes each patient’s treatment highly individualised, and patients can really feel that they are taking charge of their care.” Northern CFS Clinical Network, UK | http://bit.ly/P26kjp

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

Arabic / Chinese / English / French / German / Italian / Korean / Portuguese / Russian / Spanish

Cost: Free

Diabetes management app intended to simplify diabetes management, and to be used by adolescents and younger people with diabetes.

“Enables easier blood-sugar recording, and is an easier way to monitor blood-sugar changes over time. The developer created the app to help those with both type-1 and type-2 diabetes manage their blood sugar more effectively. Users of the app can record their blood-sugar levels anywhere they are, even if they forgot a pen. The app also produces a graphic display of blood-sugar readings over time. This enables users to see trends that might be hidden within logs of blood-sugar data.” Battle Diabetes | http://bit.ly/Qq9C0o

Diabetes Diary

Diabetes Diary
developed by Chris Bowley, fridayforward, UK


Support to deal with symptoms/disabilitiesSelf-monitoringTrackersInformation

English

Cost: £2.99 [approximately €4.28, $4.65]

Diabetes diary for recording and tracking blood-glucose readings, carbohydrate intake, and insulin dosing.

“I use ‘Diabetes Diary’, look at my trends, and work out the dose myself. I must admit it came in useful at the clinic, when the dietician was trying to persuade me the benefits of eating lots of carbohydrates. I could scroll through, and show her what happens when I overdose on the carbs.” “The other one I use is ‘Diabetes Diary’, which allows me to log all my data during the day. The carbohydrates are in grams. Plus, you can enter all the foods at each meal. It gives all the usual graphs and charts for analysing the data, and will also allow you to back up the data to your PC. I find it good for looking at trends. Some of the others I have looked at seem to geared solely to the USA.” Two bloggers on Diabetes Support Forum (DSF), UK | http://bit.ly/RJMI6Q

Diamedic

Diamedic
developed by Nicholas Martin, USA


Support to deal with symptoms/disabilitiesSelf-monitoringTrackersInformation

English / German / Spanish

Cost: £3.85 [approximately €5.52, $5.99]

Diabetes logbook that allows a user to record and monitor blood pressure, carbohydrate intake, exercise regimes, glucose readings, insulin injections, lab results, medication, pulse, temperature, weight, and other vital statistics.

“With this app, you can easily monitor your blood-glucose measurements. In addition, you can also specify the amount of insulin, and write notes (I’ve set the following notes: Before breakfast; After breakfast; Before lunch; After lunch; Before dinner; After dinner; Bedtime; Night). The app is also suitable for bolusing. The screen is divided into five sections, which can be defined by you. My five are: blood-sugar levels; insulin dosage; statistics; setup; and ‘More’. Glucose values and insulin input are two main menus, with the following input options available: blood-glucose levels; feature quantities; medications; laboratory results; sporting activities; weight; and pump data. You can view all the values in clear statistics in ‘Graphs’. Very nice, too, is that graphs are displayed in the transverse view when the phone is rotated. Values entered can be sent via email, or uploaded to a server. Conclusion: for me, the €5 is absolutely worth the money. This app is very clear, and easy to operate. It is available in German. Nine out of ten points.” Blogger on Diabetes-Blog.at, Austria | http://bit.ly/Pi1bIK

Cost: Free

Intended to help people with epilepsy manage their condition, together with relevant medical professionals.

“Tracks attacks, and what issues (such as fatigue or stress) may play a role in them. A person can enter their medication schedule, and see a message if the medication should be taken. ‘Eppy’ also has an alarm function, for when someone can feel an attack coming. The alarm alerts bystanders and rescue workers to what is wrong about the person, and to what they should (and should not) do. Bystanders can also easily contact people whom the user has selected on the app. And ‘Eppy’ has a ‘Follow-me’ feature (for walking or cycling, for example), allowing a partner, parent or other contact to always be able to check where the user is located.” Stichting Nationaal Epilepsie Fons [National Epilepsy Fund], Netherlands | http://bit.ly/JvHnJn

Infusion log for people with haemophilia.

“One patient’s solution. When Michael Schultz decided that logging his factor infusions was tedious, he took matters into his own hands and developed an app called ‘Hemolog’. The new app offers several advantages over paper (or even computerised logging systems). Your log is always with you, and can easily be e-mailed to your haemophilia treatment centre. ‘Hemolog’ also standardises entries, allowing users to simply touch a location on a map of the body. The app walks users through the logging process, and automatically fills in some information. Most importantly, it allows users to filter their data. For example, they can instantly create lists of every bleed in a particular joint.” HemAware magazine, 2010, National Hemophilia Foundation, USA | http://bit.ly/pJOK3m

Diabetes-management and personal-health app that allows a user to record and track personal health-related information.

“Asks the user to input certain data about their blood sugar and general health, and allows the user access to the visual representation of that data on their BlackBerry, or via email to their PC or healthcare provider. This visual representation allows you to have a daily view of your glucose levels. What’s missing from apps such as this is Bluetooth integration with an insulin monitor. I would like to see the developer partner with some large healthcare institutions to bring this sort of functionality, because automating and avoiding data input will make this app even better, and more effective.” Reviewer on the Diabetic Village social network, USA, linking to comments on the BlackberryCool online community for Blackberry users, Canada | [Source no longer available]

“ ‘LogFrog DB’ is one of the newer diabetes-management apps. For three bucks (less than a co-pay), you get a new spin on the diabetes app. They did away with the clinical feel of filling out charts and entering data, and designed a really visual, snappy, and enjoyable logging experience. ‘LogFrog’ also has great graphs, and export tools to help people analyse and share their data.” Blogger responding to a Diabetes Forecast article in Healthy Living Magazine of the American Diabetes Association (ADA), USA | Source is no longer available

But even for people who do not use the PC version, the app is a fully mature and good diary, though you must not forget those that the app does not export.
