About this app

During a health journey, everyone wants to know what’s going on, and how they can help. Public social media isn’t always the right place to share medical details, and it’s too hard to keep up with individual emails, texts and calls. CaringBridge offers a safe, secure place for patients and caregivers to provide health updates, and for family and friends to respond with messages of emotional support and prayers.

• Free, with no ads
• Each site has 3 privacy settings
• Connect to GoFundMe for personal fundraising
• CaringBridge is a global 501(c)3 nonprofit; founded in 1997

Nice app but does have some glitches. Sometimes uploading photos works and sometimes it doesn't. Also had trouble with adding a link for a related article into my latest post. I was able to finally add photos and the article link through editing the post on the website rather than through the app. Lastly, on both the app and website it seems that I can only re-read my posts from the last six months or so, but not before. It seems to get stuck retrieving the older ones.

I have only been using the CaringBridge platform and app for about 24-36 hours, but it has already streamlined my communications with tons of family and friends while my parents are both in the hospital. I really appreciate the overall ease of use and simple integration with Facebook, which enabled me to reach even more people. There are a few minor glitches with the app but I was able to adjust a few things on my laptop when I had a chance, so the glitches didn't significantly derail me.

I hate to say it because I think CaringBridge is a fantastic website and it's been invaluable to us during my husband's cancer treatment. But this app is honestly pretty bad. Clicking any external link (and some internal links) crashes the app completely. You cannot see who hearts a post from the app. Navigating the site settings is unintuitive. Posting journal entries is super easy though. If you just need to fire off quick updates, then the app will work well for you.
