Health Tracker Lite: iPhone App Written Review
One of the things we enjoy most about iOS and the iPhone as a platform is its ability to enrich and nourish our daily lives. No app displays this better than Health Tracker Lite, by developer IT Cases. The title for iPhone makes it quick, simple, and efficient to log your various health goals and progresses, allowing an unprecedented look at some of the key elements to your medical day. If you have a unique condition, such as diabetes—or even just want to lose a few pounds—Health Tracker Lite is a phenomenal way to manage your special needs. Best of all, the app is completely free in the App Store with a little help from its adverts. For our full thoughts on this quality iPhone app, check below beyond the break!
Concept and Functionality
If we had to lump Health Tracker Lite into a category, we’d tend to put it in the same hole as apps designed to track and monitor a user’s attempts to quit smoking. However, instead of allowing the purchaser to enter a number of cigarettes rejected per day, Health Tracker Lite instead lets the user input various important medical statistics to be saved to a log. The app firstly allows the user to create their own, named profile, and then choose a type of report. These reports can be related to weight gain or loss, blood glucose levels, blood pressure, A1C, cholesterol, or even triglycerides. In essence, if you have a special condition you’re aiming for, or would like to track the various cycles of your medical complications, Health Tracker Lite has a solution to match.
Each time the user inputs a customized level for one of the above criteria, the app logs it away for review later. These reports come in the form of bar graphs displaying progress, and best of all, these results can easily be exported to eMail.
Design and Layout
All in all, we liked the general design of the application, to boot. Health Tracker Lite makes use of many stock iOS elements, including a pinstriped background, easy-to-fill-in labels, and stacked list items. However, as much as we loved the look of the app, we do wish it came with a bit more social integration. Having the option to export our reports to Facebook or Twitter would add a motivational element not seen otherwise. If our friends and family could track our progress, we feel it would add yet another level of incentive and care to an already fantastic package.
At the end of the day, Health Tracker Lite is easy to use, extremely functional, and completely free in the App Store. If you’ve been looking for a convenient way to track your medical progress from a day to day basis, this is the app you’ve been waiting for. Health Tracker Lite earns a full recommendation, as well as an impressive 4 out of 5 stars from us at the iPhone App Review.
Health Tracker Lite requires iOS 4.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
