This application is designed to assist in logging bowel movements. This is not a subject anyone ever wants to talk about so I have tried to make this app as simple and discreet as possible. It is for people of all ages and it is designed so you can share the information with your doctor. There are multiple reasons for keeping track of poop which are not just limited to digestive diseases and disorders. (You can also use it for your own personal entertainment or make a game out of it with your friends if that is what you desire.)
I personally have some digestive issues so I started using the PoopLog app but it lacks several things that my gastroenterologist asked me to track. Unfortunately I am not a computer geek and had to pay someone to build it so the app will cost .99. The money will be used to help cover the cost of building it plus the ongoing maintenance of it. If you have any ideas to make it a better app or problems with the app please email me because I may not see everything in the review section. I will submit them to the developer for an update on a monthly basis.
My gastroenterologist was so excited when I showed him this app we are working on. He said it would really help his patients track what he needs to know. Please share with your doctor because there are many others that need it too but may not know about it. I am not paying to advertise it because I do not want to increase the cost of the app.

HOW TO USE
Click on the “Record Poop” Button

The location default is home but can be manually changed.
The Bristol Stool Form Scale is a medical aid designed to classify the form of human feces into seven types:
Type 1: Separate hard lumps, like nuts (hard to pass)
Type 2: Sausage-shaped, but lumpy
Type 3: Like a sausage but with cracks on its surface
Type 4: Like a sausage or snake, smooth and soft
Type 5: Soft blobs with clear cut edges (passed easily)
Type 6: Fluffy pieces with ragged edges, a mushy stool
Type 7: Watery, no solid pieces. Entirely liquid
Types 1–2 indicate constipation, with 3 and 4 being the ideal stools (especially the latter), as they are easy to defecate while not containing any excess liquid, and 5, 6 and 7 tending towards diarrhea.
Record the size as small, medium or large
Record the color as brown, green, light colored (white or clay colored), Yellow (greasy), black, or bright red
Record smell, pain, constipation, diarrhea, abdominal pain, strain, strength of urgency and stress level as none, mild, moderate or severe
Record blood or mucus in the stool, on the stool, on the toilet paper or in the toilet
Photograph (if you want) your poop and add it to the record or share it
Make additional notes for referencing later
Make changes or delete records previously entered. Calendar view will be displayed then go to the date the record happened. Click on the record that you want to edit or delete. The entire database can be deleted from this menu also.
Share graphs, calendar views, list views, individual records or photos via Facebook, Twitter, gmail, email, Bluetooth, messaging, SMS, QR code or wi-fi.
Create daily, weekly, monthly or custom reports of poops. Create graphs, calendar views and list views. Export to csv for easy transitioning to excel and send the spreadsheet to your doctor. Sync with multiple devices.
