A remote study to find out if a mobile phone application (HealthMode Stool) can serve as a useful tool to track and characterize daily bowel movements. The application provides participants with a single place to record their bowel movements either as a part of their general health self-monitoring, or because they may be dealing with a bowel movement condition. The minimal study duration is 1 month, and participants can continue using the application up to 2 years.
