Frequently Asked Questions

Why develop PoopLog? Is it a joke application?

As silly as it is, I developed the original version of PoopLog out of an actual need to track my bowel movements. I suffer from a stomach-related illness and years ago my doctor requested that I track my bowel movements based on the Bristol Stool Scale. At first, I started tracking it on paper, and then on a spreadsheet. I quickly realized my Android phone would be the most convenient tracker, since I often use it on the toilet.

I wrote and released the very first version of PoopLog for Android in July 2010, and continued to update it for about a year, until other projects took my focus. As the Android OS matured, I decided to sketch out what a redesigned PoopLog would look like, including many of the features requested by my users. I worked a few hours every week over the past few years to develop this latest jam-packed update, and I hope that you find PoopLog useful and fun, as silly as it may be.

I can really attach my location/photo to my PoopLog? Why?

These weren't original features of PoopLog. For some reason, these were the most requested features from my users so I had no choice but to include them!

Photos are stored to your internal storage in the /PoopLog/Photos/ folder. You can choose to hide or show PoopLog photos in your device's gallery; this option is configurable through the PoopLog application settings (Settings > Privacy) and the default is to hide any photos taken. While most versions of Android observe this setting and will ignore scanning your photos for the gallery, some versions of Android operate in a non-standard way and will scan everything, regardless of this setting; It has been reported that many Android 4.0 devices suffer from this unfortunate inconsistency. Location is only available to devices with Google Play Services (for now) and requires Android 3.0 or later.

Why does PoopLog require install permissions?

The following permissions are required for their respective reasons:

Why can't I share my PoopLog directly to [insert any app here] ?

Some apps contain a flaw where it believes you are attempting to share a link, rather than share text. If you are having an issue with a particular app, feel free to email me. and I'll see what I can do to support it!

What features can be expected in future versions of PoopLog?

The update to version 2.5 took me over 3 years to complete , and I still have more ideas. Most immediately, a Map History View will be included that wil display your PoopLog entry locations around the world, or just around your town. Soon after that, I plan on adding the ability to store PoopLog data for multiple people/pets in the same app! If you have any suggestions, comments, ideas, or any feedback at all, email me at feedback@kefsco.com.

Is PoopLog open-source?

Sorry, no. Maybe one day.

Will PoopLog ever be an iPhone/iPad/iOS app?

No.
