I've used a few apps, but, and this is probably about my personal preferences, they weren't quite what I needed. This app is very easy to use which is critical when I'm experiencing a migraine. I'm able to personalize my triggers, add different modalities that I use to get relief depending on the type of headache, and add notes that may help to further investigate other triggers. I agree with other users about the value of marking the time that medications are taken. Awesome!

I needed apps that could be printed out on paper. I also installed the authors Health Log app, and in fact paid for the full version of the Health Log app first. I couldn't print out or convert the .csv file, despite help from the author. Both apps use the same file format. I am printing from a Windows PC. These apps need to save data to a more printer-friendly format. If you don't need to print anything out, both apps are useful. But I paid for an app that promised to print. I didn't get it.

Thanks for using Headache Log and for upgrading! I find that Google Sheets is the best spreadsheet reader for clean formatting and printing. Currently the upgrade offers spreadsheet exporting but does not have in app printing. I plan on adding that, as well as PDF exporting in future updates. Sincerely, Andrew

Seems to lack an important feature...or maybe I just don't know how to use it. I'm talking about recording the progression of a headache. For instance, it stars off as a three but within an hour, it's 6. But all you seem to be able to do is to change the number without keeping the old score, which means that your final record will show that all your headaches started as 6 and did not develop gradually. Please tell me if I missed something as otherwise the app is really easy to use and v. good

Thanks for using Headache Log! You're right, currently you can record only one number per log. Personally I've been entering a new log if my headache changes over time, but I see how it would be useful to track the changes under one log. I'm looking into making that possible in the future, perhaps by linking multiple headache logs into a series.

What's new

- Added TSV spreadsheet exports
- Added a headache timer to make tracking ongoing headaches easier
- Bug fixes
