It may appeal to people who are interested in research, and has a database of resources and journal articles.
Since it is a US-based app, it may not be completely relevant to people in New Zealand.
Safety concerns: None

Clinical review

Two out of five stars


Reviewer: Rebecca Grainger, Rheumatologist, University of Otago and Hutt Valley DHB
Date of review: July 2016
Comments: This app is most useful for a person with inflammatory arthritis interested in collecting detailed information about their symptoms, medication and contributing to research about arthritis. Patients may experience the benefit of detailed tracking of symptoms and medications. "Feel good factor" of contributing to research.
Safety concerns: No safety concerns about the use of this app but may be time consuming to enter large amount of data.   
New Zealand relevance: Research database is held in the US, so unlikely for research to be undertaken in New Zealand. Medication tracking list has medications not available in NZ.
