Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a chronic functional gastrointestinal disorder that represents a significant public health problem due to the impact it produces on quality of life. Recommended treatments include cognitive-behavioral therapy to address psychological factors that may exacerbate symptoms. The use of technology and particularly mobile applications has grown significantly in recent years. In Argentina, no applications have been developed for IBS. Digestivamente is a mobile application, based on cognitive-behavioral therapy developed in this country. It aims to register the psychological factors of patients with IBS, in the context of a psychotherapeutic treatment. This work describes the application and its functionalities. The use of the application is expected to allow greater adherence to treatment and an improvement in the symptoms of these patients.
