List of gluten-free products for people with gluten intolerance.

“The main feature of our app is the ability to consult the database of gluten-free foods—which can be done either in an analytical way (looking for products by category, manufacturers, or brands), or by using keywords that will be searched on the full product descriptions. Searches are made without access to a network because the database is fully established in the memory of the smart phone. This way of consulting the database is novel, and gives immediate results.” Associazione Italiana Celiachia (AIC) [Italian Coeliac Association] Onlus, Italy | http://bit.ly/MWywrO

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

The ability to easily capture more data about your diabetes life is important.

Reminder to take medications on time.

“I have used two free apps to remind me to take my meds. I started out with ‘Pillboxie’, which has a beautiful interface, and can handle all types of meds, including injection, oral liquids, and a myriad of pill shapes and colors. You drop the pills into a virtual pill box at the appointed time. This was great, and really helped me when I was on a twice-a-day medicine, and a once-a-day medicine. I now take two drugs once daily with food, which makes it so much easier: I just take my meds at lunch time. I still use an app to remind me, though.” Blogger on POZ Blogs, USA | Source is no longer available

Text-oriented alternative communication tool for people who are literate but have difficulty speaking.
“This is Proloquo4Text, an augmentative-and-alternative communication (AAC) program for Apple devices. It does only text, unlike Proloquo2Go, and stays on a single page. It has word prediction, sentence prediction, and a side panel of pre-written words and sentences. It’s cheaper than Proloquo2Go. You might be interested in this if you need AAC with good word prediction and high-quality voices, but not have to pay for picture symbols you’re never going to use. The colours and fonts are customisable. I’m using it for my word-based communication, and Proloquo2Go for my picture-based communication, because it has always been hard for me to switch between picture and word modes on Proloquo2Go (a cognitive problem, not a fault of the program).” Social Skills for Autonomous People blog, USA | http://bit.ly/1j64pfN

“The app is well made, and attractive. For users of the app, a PC is a must, so that you can go read the data or statistics. 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. For this, one would need the ‘SiDiary’ online data-print function, (not PDF, text only), and, therefore, it is only natural to synchronise the data to the Internet version.” Diabetes-Index of Diabetes Zentrale e.V. | http://bit.ly/rnOBK6
