  • Hard to use

    by Anthony Scarsciotti

    I can't find out how to delete an item ie type of cancer. Other than that it seems to work OK. Can any one help?

    Great tool. I would add an appointment tracker. Thanks.

  • Helpful

    by Seamus83

    This app is great for both the patient and the caregivers. It supplies information as well as logs, medical information journals, etc. It can be used by the patient and even has an option for locking itself so that you can hold your privacy.

  • Great App

    by Joaquín Parrilla

    Very good application and very trustful.

    This app is great! I went through cancer once 2 years ago and wished that there was something like this that i could keep everything in line and keep everything outlined easier. Really helps me out! thanks alot!

  • Very useful

    by Blair Edmiston

    I am a premedical student and I use this app while shadowing a physician. Very useful way to familiarize myself with the terminology I hear while shadowing.

  • Great app!

    by MParaiso

    I just found out that my mother has cancer. This app helps with all the information provided via a simple interface.

  • Great App!

    by M_Mgirl

    Great app with so many ways to personalize things for your best interest! I am looking forward to learning more about my form of cancer. I'm also looking forward to learning about other forms of cancer. Thanks everyone!!

  • Good App

    by CMW48

    I use it mainly to track my meds intake It doesn't have a feature to actually do that but I use the 'Notes' feature on each med list. Just put the date and time(s) meds were taken listed with current date first. The symptom tracker is good to keep up with chemo side effects and I'm looking forward to asking the doc questions that I have listed under that feature at our next visit. Better than other med apps I have tried so far!

  • Excellent!

    by Libn76

    Just what I was looking for. Helps me keep track of what the doctor says, along with my medications and side effects. And filled with up to date information about my type of cancer and others. Love it!

  • Not useable

    by Low$$$

    Needs nursing input

  • OK

    by Cancer Rick

    If you want info it's organized better than the web, if you are looking for support or access to others who have been there, really disappointing.

  • broken external functionality

    by MacFerret

    The amount of data built into the app is minuscule, and much of this app's functionality depends on external links to the website in Safari. As of the date of this review (Nov 19, 2012), all external links return page does not exist errors. This app is of very little utility until this is fixed, since the external links are where the most detailed and up-to-date information is.

  • It's ok

    by mjdindc

    Great potential, but they didn't carry it through. Many of the links don't work, would be nice if you could pick meds and get side effects, info is very basic

  • Look no more

    by Cancer apps

    I was diagnosed with testicular cancer three months ago and we have done a lot of research to try to understand and get educated in my condition. This app. Has everything I'm looking for in one place and it's very easy to use. I highly recommend it.

  • Great for cancer patients.

    by Trydry

    Informative and to the point in laymen's language. Especially like adding questions section which I use with medicos often.

  • Súper appl

    by Diego andres Gomez abreo

    I like this Appl

  • Necessary app

    by Reedyjo

    I use this to track my mother's care. I LOVE the email function that allows me to keep my siblings who are not with us at the doctor's office updated with pertinent information in real-time. For example, if the doctor prescribes a new medicine, I can enter the information requested and email them from within the app. I can do that with any questions and answers, also. The reason that I have given this app four stars is that it does what it says it does well, but I would love to see an area for future appointments so that I can use the app to email my family this information on the spot.

  • Very helpful

    by Backersa

    I really like this app. Been able to keep track of my questions for the docs and answers are recordable. Love it.

  • Moderately good

    by GreatScott308

    It is slightly disappointing that the section detailing members of the oncology team omits the radiation oncology physicist

  • Excellent Overview

    by Charm2017

    As a Stage IV Base of tongue cancer survivor who had a recurrence, I liked this app. I recommend it to new patients for the suggested questions for the doctors

  • Needs improvement

    by Father of micro preemie

    Got this app thinking it would give specific info on the type of cancer I had. Might as well search the Internet instead. Also not password protected which I was surprised with. They could have done more with this.

  • Great app

    by Twitch7777777

    My doctor actually directed me to the website so i could do some at home research. Very pleased to have found this app. Everything is very easy to navigate and very well organized.

  • doesnt work

    by KCSammiedog

    ive loaded deleted and reloaded three times doesnt work

  • Great App!

    by T Vetreno

    As a cancer survivor and someone who is at the Doctor's office every three months I find this to be a great tool. The information is updated and I love that I can use it to save questions and have easy access to resources.
