Like the new app. Much easier to use and great for tracking symptoms. The one thing I would like to see added is a food diary. Right now I'm having to use a separate app to track what I'm eating to try and find trigger foods and compare them with symptoms on two different apps. It would be a lot easier to see days where my symptoms were worse and be able to compare what foods were eaten in the past days or even have data saying when you eat X food your symptoms seem to get worse.

Hi Devon, Thanks so much for your feedback and for your suggestion regarding a food diary! We will take this into consideration for future updates to the app. In the meantime, we suggest using the Notes section of the app to track anything you would like to! Let us know if you have any additional feedback for us at

I must've had this app for a couple years, when a nurse suggested I get it whilst I was having a flare up. It has this feature about assigning your hospital to your account which possibly does something, but mine has not done that. Other than a stool diary, I have been unable to see much use in this. They host some live community sessions on there, but nothing that convincing. Quite an empty app, but I admire the effort.

It's easy to use but I can't work out how to view past symptom tracker. After you take the flare up questionnaire it says you can go back to review these with clinician but I cant work out how. I have also tried to change my weight, height as it was entered wrong but it keeps bouncing back saying I'm 1ft 8inches!! I dont think so. Maybe there is a blip somewhere?? Few hitches but otherwise useful.
