My Allergy Diary Enhancements
We continue improving Pollen.com. Today we bring needed improvements to my allergy diary area.

Now our members can track current predominant pollens. For each day (for up to 90 days) your diary will display up to three predominant pollens that can be adjusted if desired. These are based on your current location set in your profile. We also added notes area where you can store medications or any other relative information. Moreover other enhancements were made to improve calendar navigation and combine my diary and historic pollen index charts.

Looking back to 2008!

Hello everyone,

In the past year we have announced a great suite of websites and features to Pollen.com. The first on our list was Pollenwidgets.com. Pollen widgets and gadgets make it possible to access the Pollen count on your desktop without the need of opening a web browser. We are excited about this addition and are currently working to support more operating systems as well as enhancing the feature set in 2009.

Introduced in the 3rd quarter was an integration with Allergy Buyers Club and Wego Health. Users can now shop for allergy relief and healthy home products without leaving our website and discuss Allergy related issues with other allergy sufferers. In the midst of the integrations and widget development we were hard at work developing the highest requested feature this year, Pollen History. We receive tons of great feedback from you that we greatly appreciate and can’t wait to integrate and announce in 2009, so stay tuned and remember to voice your comments, send us your recommendations and visit Pollenlibrary.com and pollen.com for all your allergy related needs.

Building an iphone application

Hello everyone,

Would you like a Pollen iphone application? The application would be similar to our Pollen widgets found at pollenwidgets.com and would make accessing the pollen alert without a computer possible! We would like to know what smart phone you are using and what features of Pollen.com you would like on your phone. Please comment below.
