Pills Ping is a medical reminder App that allows you to take your pills when it is convenient, within a time interval that you define! The App will ping you at the end of that interval, but only if you have forgotten to take your medicine.

By tapping a button one can easily extend the time interval and thus postpone the ping. Each tap postpones the reminder 15 minutes, tap 4 times for an hour. This is a most wellcome feature when one is unable to take the medicine. One may tap to postpone when one is pinged, or up to 24 hours in advance.

If one does not respond to the ping signal, it will repeat, again, and again, and again... But to avoid to irritate you, or your surrounding, the time interval between repeating pings will increase.

In the timeline, one may see all medical events for the last week, including today and tomorrow.

Pills Ping is fully functional! It has no subscription fees, no in-app purchases, and no advertisements.

What's New

Version 2.10

Fixed a problem that made it impossible to check a medicine as taken from the pop-up reminder menu. Previously, the reminders could keep coming even though the user had checked the pills as taken via that menu.

Ratings and Reviews



Update 3/25/18: Latest update fixed the bug causing the reminders to keep coming. The developer has been very quick to respond not just to bug issues but also to suggestions. There are “fancier” apps out there but this is the only one that meets my needs and I’ve tried pretty much every med reminder app out there.

Update: Have to take it down to 3 stars. There is another bug I’ve experienced that has caused me to stop using the app until it’s fixed. Even though I take all my pills and check them off, the audible and pop up reminders keep coming. So annoying. I hope it gets fixed soon!

Original review: 5 stars - Finally a pill reminder that lets me organize my supplements by event (with breakfast, at bedtime, etc) instead of a very specific time, and also let’s me create as many events as I need. This app also allows me to assign a time range for each event, which is awesome because I often don’t eat or go to bed at the exact same time each day. I take 26 different supplements spread between seven different times/events each day and this is the only app I’ve found that lets me organize them the way I need to - and I’ve tried almost every pill reminder app out there!
