There are probably some excellent self-management apps for people with mental illness, but I’m not aware of them. The scope is enormous in terms of social connection, information, and coping resources (for example, soothing, distracting, etc).” Star Wards | PatientView survey, July-August 2011

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

Chinese / English / Italian / Spanish

Cost: Free
An app to help people with cancer to track symptoms and side effects over days, months and years.
“A new app called Cancergraph is available, which can track all of your treatment symptoms and side effects when going through cancer. When dealing with treatment, there can be many taxing symptoms and side effects, and keeping track of them all for future discussions with your doctor, albeit important, can be quite difficult. It’s crucial to have an accurate record for your doctor, as this can affect your treatment options. This new, free app, created by Malecare, allows you to keep record of it all. 
With the app, you can select 5 symptoms from a list of over 200. When a symptom is selected, you then rate it on a 5-point scale. All data is placed into a color-coded graph so you have it to show your healthcare professional at your next appointment. If you need to add more than five symptoms, you can use the journal feature to write anything you deem necessary to remember and share. You can add 5 symptoms each time you open the app, and the app can hold years of side effect records. You may also attach any photos related to the data you input. You can also record when you have good days with no symptoms, since this information is important as well. The app can send updates of clinical trials, and lets you opt to share your information for research purposes, withholding your identity.”

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.

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

Carbohydrate counter with a food database.

“The US food database is a bit too huge for my app. For this English-language app, I used an English version of the Norwegian food database. This fits on most devices. It would also be nice to have a database with foods in different proportions (for instance, an apple ‘per 100 gram’, or ‘per piece’). I know all that information is available in the US database, and I used that to make a more elaborated Dutch version.” The app developer, blogging on TuDiabetes, a social network of the Diabetes Hands Foundation (DHF) | http://bit.ly/MH6xw6

Helps people with diabetes to track and manage blood-sugar levels.

“It’s easy to tag your meter readings with relevant notes. The built-in database includes an impressive list of items like ‘air bubble’, ‘fatty meal’, and ‘light exercise’. You can set your typical meal times, and it will automatically tag your readings. If you change your schedule, it’s straightforward to correct the tag. The ability to easily capture more data about your diabetes life is important. It will allow healthcare providers to better understand why a patient’s readings are what they are, and make better treatment decisions. Who can look back seven weeks and remember that there was an air bubble in their insulin-pump tubing? Very few. Having this knowledge is an important step towards improving outcomes.” Diabetes Daily, USA | http://bit.ly/JS5BiK

The app also allows us to upload photos of bleeds, to be able to watch what they are doing, and gives us information in graph form about my son's annual bleed rate. Finally, all of this information is communicated to my son's doctors, so that they can see what his body is doing, as well as check his adherence to his infusion schedule, without having to be in the office. The only drawback for us is that our pharmacy will not use the app, so that we could take advantage of using it for our monthly refills."

“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.”

Tool that teaches how to be aware of the symptoms of a stroke, and how to react.

“Stroke is not only the No. 4 cause of death in the United States, it’s also a leading cause of severe, long-term disability. That's why it’s important to take action immediately. Research conducted by The American Stroke Association shows that patients who take a clot-busting drug, or thrombolytic, within three hours of their first stroke symptom can reduce long-term disability from ischemic stroke – the most common type, accounting for about 87% of all cases. When you know the signs of stroke, the life you save could be your own or someone else's. Learn to spot the signs of stroke, or spot a stroke F.A.S.T. (Face drooping, Arm weakness, Speech difficulty, Time to call 911) with the help of our mobile app for iphone/ipad. Your life is in your hands."

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.”
