Symple (Version 2.1.5)

Synopsis of the App​​

Symple is a simple and well-designed tracking and reporting system to manage symptoms and the factors that influence them. Users can rate symptoms on a color-gradient to indicate intensity from green to red for being the most severe. Using the graphs available, they can analyze how those symptoms overlap with factors like sleep or air travel over a short or long term period. To get the full experience including journal entries and unlimited symptom and factor logging, users must upgrade to the complete version of the app.
