Automatic Weather Tracking:
Find correlations between your pain / symptoms and the weather. MPD automatically saves weather info with each diary entry.
Track Multiple Conditions:
No more switching apps to track different conditions. MPD can track and compare an unlimited amount of chronic conditions. This allows you look for correlations between your, for example, mood and headaches.
Color Coded Calendars:
The green, yellow, and red days in the calendar communicate your history at a glance.
Plot any piece of information on the graph to find trends and correlations. Compare up to three metrics and one weather metric at once!
Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words. Attach up-to 3 photos with captions to each entry. This is a great way to document swelling, rashes, skin discoloration, environmental factors and more.
Editable Pain Scale Descriptions:
MPD comes with a pretty good default pain scale. However, you should consult with your doctor and replace it with their pain scale.
Flag an entry as ‘Private’ and it will NOT show up on a Doctor’s Report.
Keep consistent entries with the help of the built-in reminder system.
Get an extra layer of security by locking MPD. A 4-digit pass will be required to access the data.
Dropbox Backup: Ensure you never lose your data. Regularly backup your entries to Dropbox.
Here's what customers have to say about My Pain Diary:
"My surgeon spotted something by looking at my graph and was able to diagnose another condition, which is now being treated."
"I was able to print out a report to take to my specialist to help describe my condition. Money well spent!"
"Helped me discover trends I would not otherwise have been aware of because of the comprehensive records it automatically keeps, coupled w the ability to create custom reports & charts."
"Makes communication so much easier and it helps me to understand my body and mind better as well."
Version 3 adds powerful new features in addition to performance, stability, and interface improvements.
Head Map: A specially designed list with head graphic for tracking headache locations.
Custom Metrics: Now you can track more than just Location, Type, Trigger and Remedy. As an example, I’ve created two new custom metrics for you, Symptoms and Duration. Create as many as you need and assign them to the appropriate Color Flags. This really opens up new tracking opportunities.
Social Sharing: Want to seek support from friends on particularly bad days? Want to share that weather correlation you just found in the Graphs? Now you can share entries and graphs to Facebook and Twitter. (* iOS6)
And of course there are the standard improvements to the interface, stability and performance.
As always, create a Dropbox backup before updating.
