We are pleased to announce the release of version 1.3 of the Monash University Low FODMAP Diet app for iOS, which brings compatibility with iPad. We have redesigned the app from the ground up to take advantage of the greater screen-size available on the iPad, and delivered an enhanced experience that allows more information to display on screen at once. The iPad version also brings a larger font-size for improved readability, especially for vision-challenged users.
Also, the app has now been optimised for iPhone 6/6 Plus users, to take full advantage of the new larger screen size. This improvement has been a long time coming, so we are particularly glad to have this in your hands now.
We're constantly trying to improve the app, and user feedback plays a crucial role. As always, any suggestions, bug reports or general feedback are always appreciated and should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We're hard at work currently on version 1.4, which should bring further exciting improvements to how the app functions, so stay tuned and thanks for using the app!
To see an overview of improvements that have been made, please click “Read more”:
1. About/Booklet section
The About/Booklet section now occupies the full iPad screen, which makes learning about FODMAPs easier to do from the couch or other favourite comfortable spot. The booklet also has an adjustable text size function, if the provided text size is too small.
2. Guide section
The Guide now has a sidebar, alongside the food information page, which allows quicker movement between foods and moving between categories without losing your place in the guide. Personal notes have also been given a facelift, which is great news if like keeping notes on specific foods.
3. Recipe section
The Recipes section now has stunning full-screen width images, so you can better see the wide variety of Low FODMAP meals available to prepare. Layout has been improved for the iPad screen. The text size has also been increased, which should make reading instructions from a distance easier, while preparing meals in the kitchen.
4. Shopping List
The Shopping List has also been outfitted with a sidebar, which should make keeping track of a long and complex shopping list of Low FODMAP foods and recipe ingredients a breeze, including a new search function for especially long lists.
5. Food & Symptom Journal
The Food & Symptom Journal is also improved, with an overview sidebar that should make keeping track of your meals setup for your 1 week period much more straightforward.
Finally, we've implemented some often requested features in the Food & Symptom Journal:
- Reports from the symptom journal can now be exported to PDF using the new 'Share PDF' button, to share with your practitioner or whomever else you like
- You now set daily reminders at a time of your choosing to ensure you get your symptom journal completed every day.
