Current version:
Release date:
23 July 2011
Please note:
Development of Diabetes Logbook X and Asthma Logbook X has been suspended: while the applications still seem to work in Mac OS X 10.10 there will be no more bug fixes. The development environment (Xcode) has advanced too much since I started these projects on Mac OS X 10.4 and it would require the applications to be started afresh as completely new projects, for which I haven't the time to invest is such a large undertaking.

Asthma Logbook X is a logbook application for tracking and reporting asthma related information such as:
  • peak flow readings, in L/min
  • inhalers used and medicines administered
  • Breathing difficulty and general health
  • weight, height, and calculated Body Mass Index
  • event name
  • free-text notes.
An event can even be flagged so it stands out from other events.

It can generate 5 different types of report, to show your information how you want to see it.

Remember appointments and supplies, and set reminders in iCal; Record important contact information and add it to Address Book.

  1. Fixed: Bug when trying to view reports in Mac OS X 10.7 'Lion'.
Before using the software and when migrating to a localised language version, please read the User Guide.

As a Mac OS X Universal Binary, Asthma Logbook X supports both PowerPC and Intel based Macs.

Supported Languages
