Pill reminder


Just purchased the upgraded version of this app(£1.99) to replace my existing app which is no longer supported. So far so good Re it’s operation. However I have 2 linked devices iPhone and IPad Pro, so it loads onto both devices automatically when purchased, first annoying feature is if you set up all the info on one device it doesn’t set up on the other, which is annoying as I have quite a few meds to enter. Secondly when grudgingly re-entering all my info again on my second device (iPad Pro) , it would only allow me to enter 2 reminders unless I paid a further £1.99 ! Er I don’t think so, bit of a cheek as I’d already paid once. So deleted the I pad pro version. Bit naughty developers, is this the thanks you get for supporting you ?!
Please have a rethink on your charging policy developers, then I’ll give you 5 stars.

Just what the doctor ordered!


Invaluable app especially if you're taking multiple pills across the day. Easy to customise as needed to your own requirements and circumstances, and the option to add GP and/or hospital appointments is an added bonus. One area where it could be improved is where a prescription changes, e.g. Dose increased and/or dose schedule modified: If you change this in the Reminder option, when you save you loose past logged records. If this could be modified to retain those records, it would warrant the extra star. Additional to this, (as a nice to have) if the app could use iCloud and sync across devices, that would be the icing on the cake.

Needs sync to multiple devices


It’s great but could improve. I’d have given this a 5 star rating if a) it could sync across devices. No way do I want to type all my meds in more than once (I have 3 apple devices). I’m on my iPad at home then phone when out and about so I need this feature. I expected it as standard these days. And B) if it could check UK medication not just american formulary as meds have different names and often dosage distribution.
