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

RemindersSupport to deal with symptoms/disabilitiesSelf-monitoringTrackersInformation

English / French / German / Italian / Japanese / Korean / Spanish

Cost: £1.91 [approximately €2.37, $2.99]
Diary for people who have headaches, migraine, or ENT (ear, nose or throat) pain.
“Over the last few months I have been trying out a bunch of migraine-diary apps. I am seeing a new specialist in a couple of months, and I thought I’d try these apps to export some records for him. I think the apps have potential to be useful, but I have had issues finding one with an optimal feature set. A lot of them just seem to cease development or don't implement suggestions from reviews either. Anyway, I thought I’d give some input on what I have found. … As far as actually learning something about your migraines, there is one called ‘ecoHeadache’ that so far blows away everything I have tried. It not only has extensive diary features, but a good medication and therapy database that you can easily update. It keeps track of the how well each medication and therapy worked for each attack, and creates stats on how well they are working. It also has a triggers section, symptoms, and pretty much everything else you can think of. Other apps I tried do tough on these features, but on nowhere close to this level. So, on top of keeping records for the specialist, I really think I can learn something from using this app. I am actually kind of excited about it. Another big plus is it’s one of the few apps that allows you to input headache durations in days, not just hours. I am not sure why so many apps are missing this feature when so many people’s migraines last longer than 24 hours. … A lot of the free [apps I tried] were too barebones, and the interfaces really varied as far as intuitiveness. A lot of the pay ones didn’t have a feature set that matched the ‘ecoHeadache’ one, and cost more.” Patient, writing on Migrainepage discussion forum, November 2011, USA | http://bit.ly/1B2gt7k

“Parents need to know that Pictello provides an easy way to create ‘social stories’ from the images and videos in your device’s photo library. Simply decide on a story topic with your child, and choose the ‘Wizard’ or the ‘Expert’ to guide you through the process. Know that your photo books can be shared through iTunes, Dropbox, or Pictello’s universal server. You’ll need to provide an email to join Pictello, but other users can only download your photo books if you give them a code. Kids can learn how to create stories that are relevant to their lives with Pictello. For example, they can express their likes and dislikes, communicate with others, and learn routines. What’s nice is that these stories are, by nature, very specific, and tailored to kids’ lives. If your child is having trouble transitioning back to school, or greeting adults, for instance, Pictello can be useful. In addition to self-expression, kids can learn a bit about the art of storytelling.” Vicki Windman, Common Sense Media—Advocating for Kids, USA | http://bit.ly/1hWXSUD

ReSound Smart
App that creates a direct connection between hearing aids and content from some android devices, iphones, ipads, ipod touch, and Apple Watch
“…what’s interesting about GN Resound is that all their wireless hearing aids…can connect to your smartphones and tablets wirelessly, allowing you to hear the tinnitus masker straight into your hearing aid. In fact, it allows you to hear any audio output from your smartphone and tablet through your hearing aid.
The GN Resound LiNX and LiNX2 premium hearing aids can directly connect to your Apple smartphones and tablets and some Android models; other hearing aid models and Android devices currently require either the GN Resound Phone Clip or the GN Resound Mini Mic as a connector.
The Phone Clip functions as a remote control in addition to connecting to your phone, allowing you to easily change the programme function on your hearing aids as well as allowing you to stream music or any other form of audio directly into the hearing aids. The Mini Mic allows you to gain better speech understanding in noisy places by reducing the distance between yourself and the sound source, allowing you to hear the speech more than the noise – similar to a loop system. The Mini Mic can also connect directly to your smart phone or any audio output socket using a wire to stream the sound directly to your hearing aids.
Other hearing aid manufacturers have similar capabilities but most require an additional bluetooth streamer to connect your hearing aids to a smartphone.”

App sharing parent and carer experience of caring for children with Tay-Sachs or Sandhoff disease.
“We hope that this app changes the way in which families affected by Tay-Sachs and Sandhoff disease are able to access information to help in their role as a carer.”

“These are incredibly rare diseases with fewer than ten children born with Tay-Sachs or Sandhoff in the UK each year. Families can feel extremely isolated and we hope that an app that people can use wherever they are will make a real difference to the community and become a key tool for carers in the UK and abroad.”

The app has been designed to work on various mobile device platforms and contains interviews with families affected by Tay-Sachs and Sandhoff disease about the role of being a carer. There has also been input by the healthcare professionals who support people affected by these rare diseases.”
Daniel Lewi, co-founder CATS Foundation UK, and father of a girl diagnosed with Tay-Sachs. | http://www.cats-foundation.org/blogs/introducing-the-eacademy-for-tay-sachs-sandhoff-disease-app/
