Hi Robert , looking forward to the new app, just wondering how to get the app, will you be posting a link 👍🏻

The app and the link will be announced on our website on Monday.

It will be on iTunes, I believe (I'm not an Apple guy) but you can only find it through the specific link. You will need membership details to open up the app, same as the upcoming android version.

Hi Robert , I joined the pbc foundation about 15 years ago and I do receive the magazine through the post but I can never get on the members section on the website so is this a separate membership that I would have to sign up to ?

Thanks got it 👍🏻

Should be in the App Store. Right?

PBC Living is available now

Is "PBC Living" the same APP that Robert is referring to?

Looks like it. Allows you to track how you feel, bilirubin, ALP, pruritus, etc. moods, how well you sleep.

I guess I'm confused because Robert said it wouldn't be available until Sept 4.

It's available for iPhone in App Store. Free app. Check it out

Not sure I saw symptom tracker but I'm pleased with what I see

Also, this app is by Intercept Pharmaceuticals, which is the lab who manufactures Oclavia.

That app was released by Intercept and (I believe) is USA only.

Our app is accessible through our website, not through the app store directly, and is available without charge to PBC patients anywhere in the world.

It is by Intercept Pharmaceuticals

I've tried to join the foundation but for some reason I can't put all of the information required. I live in the States & it's as if there isn't a county that goes with my address. But, I would like to be able to receive the info that people receive when joining. Not sure if Im doing something wrong

I would be inclined to click the nearest for now. It can probably be added to the system as scrolling through I can see some US states and Australian states too. Although after saying this, I cannot see how to edit my details so if you want literature to be posted maybe not a great idea :/ PBCFoundation can you help?

I just want to join for the info to be sent to my home. Not posting it on a international site.

I may have confused you, I do this and its nearly 3 am here (itchfest time) I did mean maybe not a good idea to add just any random county/state if you wanted literature posted to you.
