Story behind the app

In September 2014, my 30-year-old wife underwent surgery for a mechanical cardiac valve because hers was wearing out. As a result, she suddenly had to take blood thinners every day. The dose to be taken daily often varies from day to day. It also happens that she doubts whether she has taken the medication. This is of course very dangerous.

Around the same time, I was looking for an interesting case for my first Android app. With my wife as a guinea pig, a first version was created. INR Diary was born!

Today, INR Diary is the best rated INR management app for Android and iOS. It is available in 7 languages: English, German, Spanish, Catalan, French, Italian and Dutch. INR Diary has been downloaded over 4500 times in over 30 countries throughout the world.

In the end of 2020, the app got a complete overhaul and is now also available on iOS.

Frequently asked questions

Can I transfer data from the old Android version of the app?

The initial version of INR Diary is no longer maintained. But if you still own a copy of that app, it is possible to transfer all your data to the new version of INR Diary. Perform the following steps:

  1. In the old app, use the Export function from the Settings screen. This results in 2 export files being stored on the filesystem of your Android device: doses-yyyymmdd.inr and inrs-yyyymmdd.inr.
  2. Use Android File Transfer to copy over these files to your PC or laptop. Usually, these files are in the "/sdcard/0/INR Diary" or "/mnt/sdcard/0/INR Diary" folder of your Android phone.
  3. Important! Rename the file extension for both files from .inr to .csv. You should now have 2 files on your local system: doses-yyyymmdd.csv and inrs-yyyymmdd.csv.
  4. Finally, use the Import function in the new app to import the dose export into the doses overview and the INR export into the INR overview.

Please contact us should you run into any problems transferring data.

I cannot freely enter a dose value

The app works with 2 types of dosing: pills based dosing and milligram based dosing. This dosing type depends on the type of medication that was configured the first time you opened the app.

  • Milligram based dosing is used for users of Warfarin and Acenocoumarol (Coumadin, Marevan, Jantoven, Sintrom). With this dosing type, you can enter the exact decimal dose (in mg) that you need, with no upper limit.
  • Pills based dosing is used for Phenprocoumon patients (Marcoumar, Falithrom). Using a dropdown, you can select full, half or quarter pills as a dose, for doses up to 3 pills.

You can change the medication type in the Settings page of the app. If you use a medication that is not in the list, simple select "Other" and choose between milligram based or pills based dosing.

How do I delete a dose?

You can delete a dose either from the doses overview or from the dose scheme by swiping a dose value right to left. Please check out the this instruction video to see a demo.

The daily reminder doesn't work on my phone

If you have configured a daily reminder but you don't receive any notification, please run through the following steps to check if you have missed anything:

  1. Make sure that notifications are enabled in the app. Verify that this is the case in the Settings screen of the app. Also make sure that the notification time is set correctly (e.g. AM vs. PM).
  2. If that is the case, make sure that your Android or iPhone allows notifications for your app.
    On Android, go to "Settings" and tap "Apps & notifications" and then "Notifications". Look for the "INR Diary" app and make sure that the slider next to the app is on.
    On iOS, go to "Settings" and search for "INR Diary" at the bottom. In the settings of the app, click on "Push notifications" and enable the notifications for the app with the sliders.
  3. You only get a reminder if a dose is configured for today. So verify that you a dose is indeed present for the day on which you expect to receive a notification.

Should notifications still not work for you, please contact us to help you solve the problem.

Where is my data stored?

Dose and INR data is only stored on your private device. No data is exported/synced to the cloud, to Apple Health or Google Fit or any other external systems.

Use the "Share" function from the "Doses" and "INR Measurements" screens to export dose and INR data to a wide range of media, such as email, device storage, Google Drive, ...

Testje

Can I import data from another app / a handwritten diary?

Yes, this is possible through the import functionality of the app. Import files need to be in CSV (comma separated value) format (with .csv extension) and should contain the following type of data:

  • Dose import files: dose date (in yyyy-mm-dd format), dose value (decimal), dose confirmation time (hh:mm)
  • INR import files: INR date (in yyyy-mm-dd format), INR value (decimal), INR remark (optional, text)

Please click on the links above to see samples of these files. Please contact us if this doesn't work for you.
