BariatricPal Mobile App Beta for iOS!



Recommended Posts

Hey BariatricPal members, we’re finally ready to release the first beta version of our very own BariatricPal Mobile app for iOS! This new release is a complete rewrite of the mobile app from the ground up. In addition to the forums, we’ve also added native magazine support and user galleries to the new app. The ability to “Like” posts and other content has also been overhauled to support reactions in addition to simply liking content.

While we have dedicated a tremendous amount of time into development and testing of the new BariatricPal app, we do expect there to be bugs and issues in this early release. We are hopeful that you are interested in helping us make the BariatricPal mobile app the absolute best in can possibly be. We welcome all of you to join and test the BariatricPal app and absolutely all feedback will be greatly appreciated.

You’re welcome to post feedback, comments and suggestions directly to this topic, or e-mail us at app@BariatricPal.com. If you’re ready to join in, simply fill out the form below with your Apple ID e-mail address and your BariatricPal username and we’ll send you an invite with all of the information you need as soon as possible.

Thank you and happy testing!!

Here’s one:

I quoted a comment on the app. It shows the quote to be originated by myself, not the poster, and some crazy date and time as well.

Excellent - thank you so very much for finding and reporting this bug! This is what will help us get the app experience to be as good as possible!

P.S. How has the app been working for you in general?

Thanks again!

In general it’s fine so far. I’ll play around with it some more to figure if there’s anything else that can be streamlined or fixed.

I’ve got one...is it possible to add/see what topic or sub topic a thread is coming from? Currently it’s just listed as the thread topic. Wouldn’t know if it’s meant to be in the powder Room, the Men’s Room, Rant/Rave, Nutrition, Exercise, Pre or Post Ops, or even what WLS topic.

The above suggestion is for under the FEED. No editing ability?

I get to rest my case...this morning I tried to comment and kept getting NO PERMISSIONS. At first, I thought maybe it's a glitch and then I logged on to the website by computer and saw that the thread I was trying to comment on is in the Veteran's Forum. So, no wonder why I couldn't post. Thus, there is no way to tell what forum a thread is in on the app, under TRENDING and TIMELINE. Only way is to access the forums by subject is under FORUM. But if the TRENDING and TIMELINE and even FOLLOWING is like the dashboard of the app, it'll make sense to be able to see what the forum topics are for each of the threads. Make sense?

Is anyone else having trouble with their notifications on the phone app? Mine gives me an error message every time since the most recent update.

Two bugs to report... I can no longer quote individuals in the iOS app. Also, when trying to change my profile picture, it keeps saying validating session and never updates.

        Congratulations to her Proud Granny, and wishing her a bright and successful future.

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

        welcome welcome - 23 lbs pre/post op is great. you are doing fine. keep up the good work. kathy

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.

        I use benefiber everyday in my water. it is flavorless. On days when I get a little backed up I use Miralax. It works great without any cramping.
