A new pain tracking and education app to complement our community just launched. What do people think? www.painscale.com

The website is pretty nice and mobile app has a lot of content. Would be great if both apps partnered together :)

After trying it myself I found it ok, a couple of bits I found not very useful for me.
I did like the articles and tutorials, most were helpful and interesting and cover some great points.
It has a good layout, it's easy to move around the app.
I like that it shows you your good days and bad days and your averages on the insight page although I do prefer the graph on here.
If you're in the USA then some of the features are good but I'm not in the USA so things like finding doctors and even putting in your address details don't work for me. Being in the UK we have the NHS, which is free healthcare here in the UK, and we get referred to hospital consultants and have a marginal degree of control for what hospital and sometimes what consultant.
I'm not keen on the pain drawing figure, the one on here is better. You can't pinpoint exactly where the pain is and you can't shade it to the varying degrees of pain like on here.
I found there isn't a lot of meds on there and there's no way to manually add them and the same goes for differnt conditions.
I think when the app has probably been out a while and has a wider range of meds (that covers names of meds from other countries as well as American names for meds) and a wider range of conditions it may be better for me or even if there was a way to add them manually would make it better.
