What is WellApps?
Imagine your personal physician was with you 24 hours a day for a month to witness the symptoms of your chronic illness. He/she would be able to keep you feeling well.

WellApps creates this effect virtually, using mobile and online symptom tracking applications. Patients can log their symptoms using our simple apps (WellApps) and participating physicians can see their patients’ data in real-time.

Furthermore, de-identified data can be collected anonymously and shared with researchers to make progress in the treatment of chronic illnesses.

Let us know what you think

Danielle, from We Are Crohn's - I just got it! This is AWESOME. I have been keeping my CDAI in an excel spreadsheet. No more excel for me!

Kello82 from crohnsforum.com - i love that gi monitor.
very cool, it would come in so handy when you are filling out the mandatory paperwork at the start of every dr appt...symptoms worse, better, pain scale, med changes, etc. I can never remember that stuff

Kyle, from We Are Crohn's - This app is a life saver. I have a crazy life and my can never find time to write down this stuff for my next gi appointment.

New release available soon

The new release will be available any day (it is being reviewed by Apple). It does include the meal tracker as well as a password protection option to lock others out of the app. Best of all, it syncs with our online app (found here) behind a unified registration so you can access your data anywhere. More detail to come...


Most comments sound like

Most comments sound like great ideas so far. I don't know if anyone has mentioned it but under the medication tab, would it be possible to add infusions or another choice other than daily or weekly med cycles. I ask because I get Remicade infusion every six weeks, I believe this would be very useful. Thanks you for the awesome app, keep up the good work. Thanks

Email log

This app has been very helpful. Thanks so much for developing it. I find the daily logs especially helpful. I just wish I could include the complete logs in the emailed report instead of a summary. That would provide a more detailed picture of my status rather than just an average. Of course I also like the 1-10 scale - good idea!


I have had this App since the beginning almost, and it does everything it says it does. Well done and thanks. I am in agreement with a lot of the suggestions for improvement. I like the idea of more choices for stools stress and pain. (Would really like to see a 1-10 with pain) I know I couldn't write this App, so good job. Every little bit more helps.

On a side note, ever since I updated to 3.0 on the iphone, the App will not open. Has any one else had any issues?

Keep up the good work. I know I appreciate it.


re: Thanks

Appreciate the feedback. We have many new great features in our next release, due out at the end of this month. These features will give you the increased flexibility you're looking for. re: 3.0 - you are the first and only report of this error, but our developers are checking the logs and will include any bug fixes in the upcoming release.

Different Symptoms

My Crohn's is higher up the intestine which means that the bleeding can be black. Could we have a way of capturing it. Also since it causes strictures rather than diarrhea a way of not assuming that solid is good would be helpful.

I agree with many other

I agree with many other suggestions, and after using the app for a week, I also want to thank you for it and how useful it is. In addition to adding notes to both the stool and pain sections, it would help me if there were more than the three options under Stool, perhaps one to indicate firmer than Normal, as well as someplace to log other symptoms, such as hemorrhoids, tongue ulcers, and so on. I'm putting all the other stuff in the Stress notes now, but having more specific places to put them would be great. Wonderful program, thank you.

Porting to Android

Great idea and interesting app. Any chance that you'll have an Android version? I don't plan on ever owning an iPhone (probably many other "open-sourcers" out there with IBD). :-)

re: diet tracker - I think this is a nice feature, but using your application along with something like SparkPeople.com is probably more useful. Bottomline: find a way to make it simple otherwise you'll be reinventing the wheel (many other web apps available for tracking diet).

Again, great app and I hope you see much success. It's too bad mobile phones don't have a gas monitor. I've always thought that the chemistry that inevitably becomes the smell of our BM's could have useful information. (gosh, can't talk about these topics just anywhere can we...) ;-)



I found it great to take pictures of my daughters stools to show the docs exactly what it looks like when they ask. Was it a little bloody or a lot?, how soft was it?, etc. In discussions with doctots and other parents in IBD groups it was accepted as a good idea to have pictures, anything that will help the doctors help our loved ones.
when my daughter is hospitalized I write everything on the white board in our Hospital room so when the doctors visited there was an exact recolletion of everthing that happened since their last visit, medical doses, food intake, BMs, with times. I always have my camera phone and my laptop with me, so when the Drs came in in the morning, I had all the information ready. This was also helpfull when the Doctors went off shift for a few days and we got a new ones. Being in a teaching hospital you get asked the same questions over and over. Lastly, can this be made into a stand alone app for PC or Mac. I would gladly would buy it. Thanks for your work.

GI Monitor ....Fantastic idea

I would firstly like to say thank you for creating such a great application. Trying to track how I feel on an excel spreadsheet has not only been tedious but not entirely accurate for me as I can not quite remember all that i eat and how my stool is after. This is a great concept as I always have my itouch on me and its on the go. I do agree with Brian that a food section would be helpful for many. I just wanted to take the time and say thank you as this really has made my life that much easier. Great job!
