How to get the app

This simple app allows users to keep track of  their headaches or migraines by recording the date,  duration, severity, type of pain, location, triggers and medications. For the complete app description, go to Google Play(external link) (android) and for a detailed review, see reviews below.


Very easy and quick to use.

✔ Allows customisation of lists such as medications, triggers etc

✔ Data can be viewed as a basic graph (paid version allows records to be exported as a spreadsheet).

Headache questions are limited; some clinically important information (such as associated features, or effect on daily life) would have to be entered manually into the notes section (thereby potentially missing some such important information).

No education component or information about self-care.

✘ Medication list includes US-based names that may not be recognisable to New Zealanders.

✘ Not available for iPhones/iPads.

✘  App only records very basic headache or migraine details (does not include associated symptoms such as e nausea, auras, prodromes, non-medication treatments.

✘ Free version has advertising; paid version is ad-free.

Clinical review

3 star review

: Jeremy Steinberg, GP, FRNZCGP
Date of review: October 2017
Platform: Android
Comments: This app is most useful for headache sufferers and their doctors, to track headache trends and features, helping the sufferer and doctor with diagnosis and treatment. It is simple and fast to log a headache and users are able to customise headache questions to an extent. However, the headache questions are limited, meaning some clinically important information (such as associated features, or effect on daily life) would have to be entered manually into the notes section (thereby potentially missing some such important information). Cannot export information without paying, limiting its usefulness. No information on migraine or headache. 
Safety concerns: Does not advise you to seek medical help if you enter in concerning headache features.
New Zealand relevance: Acetaminophen is called paracetamol in New Zealand.
