Good user review: “I love this app. It helps [to keep] me and my [health care providers] informed about what my daily life is like. Without this you don't remember what your daily life is like. I try not to dwell on my pain and tend to forget about how it affects me. This app has really helped with my communication between me and [the doctor].” — User on Google Play
Limitations: Currently, the app is solely meant for patients, and there is no way to share the results or reports directly with your health care provider.
