    Available in both Lite (free) and Pro versions, this Android app makes keeping track of your migraines a cinch. A headache calendar allows you to track the day and time of migraines, along with accompanying symptoms and possible triggers. Log your attempts at treating your migraines and the severity of each attack to generate graphs and charts that show the distribution of causes or the days on which your headaches are the worst. Better still, you can send the reports to your healthcare provider for an easy explanation of your migraine patterns.
