Folsom, California - Huck LLC today is pleased to introduce SympTracker 1.0 for iOS, its free medical app that lets users track and manage outbreaks of cold sores and fever blisters. These lip infections are caused by the herpes simplex virus, and the app lets users record the details of each incident, including locations, symptoms, triggers, and treatments. SympTracker analyzes these incident details to create a Summary, including average severity, duration, and frequency, which tracks the effectiveness of therapeutic treatments and preventive measures. Because symptoms are usually infrequent and heal over time, it can be difficult to isolate their cause and to determine which measures actually help.
According to Wikipedia, "Herpes labialis, or orolabial herpes, is an infection of the lip by herpes simplex virus (HSV-1). An outbreak typically causes small blisters or sores on or around the mouth commonly known as cold sores or fever blisters. The sores typically heal within 2—3 weeks, but the herpes virus remains dormant in the facial nerves, following orofacial infection, periodically reactivating (in symptomatic people) to create sores in the same area of the mouth or face at the site of the original infection.
"HSV-1 affected 57.7% of Americans tested in a 1999—2004 study. By age 50, 80%—90% of adults have the virus. More than 50 million adults in the U.S. develop symptomatic episodes every year. Cold sore has a rate of frequency that varies from rare episodes to 12 or more recurrences per year. People with the condition typically experience one to three attacks annually. The frequency and severity of outbreaks generally decreases over time."
Users begin by filling in an Incident Report, where they can easily enter all the relevant information, including: Title of Incident, Date of First Symptom, Nature and Location of the First Symptom, Severity of Symptom, Trigger(s), Treatment(s), and Results. With each additional Incident recorded in its database, the app can provide increasingly accurate Summary information, which will help the user determine what to avoid, which treatments are best, and the preventive measures, if any, that work. Also in the Summary are: Average Duration, Common First Symptoms, Common Triggers, Average Frequency, and Average Severity.
The app includes a library of preventive measures, and users can track the frequency and start date of each measure they adopt. This information is included in the analysis presented in the Summary.

SACRAMENTO, CA - A Folsom man is bringing ideas to life in the form of mobile apps.
Apptology is one of 450 technology companies in the area that is making a difference through innovation
For Rich Foreman, making apps is more than just business.
"I started out making apps for my daughter actually," Foreman explained.
It started as a hobby in 2009 creating apps for his daughter.
"The apps we made, she learned her ABCs and learned to count actually," Foreman said.
At the time, Foreman worked as a software engineer for WebEx in Rancho Cordova, which was eventually acquired by Cisco. Then, Foreman found himself a casualty of the economy.
"I don't think I would have been an entrepreneur if I didn't get laid off, but sometimes necessity is the mother of invention," Foreman said.
He likes Sacramento and didn't want to move to the Bay Area for another tech job. Foreman looked around and saw how much smart phones were changing how people communicate and how businesses could use apps as a marketing tool. So, he took a big chance.
"Basically, this whole thing was funded through my 401K plan," Foreman said.
He formed Apptology with one other person. Three years later, the Sacramento area based tech start up has grown to about 50 employees with clients worldwide.
So far, Foreman and his team have created more than 200 apps. There's one that interprets your dreams, write a song and help you if you're in the market to buy a home.
"This is a hot space," Foreman said. "Every time I go to the airport or walk through a restaurant, I feel validated I am doing the right thing."
And if this is any validation, Apptology is growing 30 percento to 40 percent every year. He's making apps that he knows will one day make their way into his daughter's hands again.

"Apptology contacted us about doing a restaurant app for one of our restaurants. We were very skeptical, as we have been solicited by many firms to produce an app. The common theme, it was going to be very expensive. Apptology not only made it affordable, but extremely easy to set up. We have full control of our mobile site which makes it very convenient for us to makes changes to our app. We love having this new tool to interact with our guests! We are just getting it off the ground, but are thrilled with the response from our guests."
Thank you! Sincerely,
Karoline Platt, Owner, Sienna Restaurant
