Great option to avoid carrying a pager
I appreciate the developers of this product because I don't want to have to carry a phone and a pager. Plus, the information is ? HIPAA protected. I wish that the option to see the oncall system for my institution, as well as the option to login to paging system was able to be controlled from the app. I hope for more alert tone options. Also, are you planning to develop an apple watch app? This way I could look at my page message without having to go to the phone.
Nice to not need a pager, annoying tones
This application allows the hospital to page me without carrying a pager and include text messages. There is no way to answer other than by phone, however.
I have to sign in almost every time, usually with my fingerprint.
The notification tones range from awful to painful with no way to adjust the volume. They invite cursing. Just like the awful pagers, this will wake you up with a shock. Nothing ever changes with each subsequent version.
Not ready for prime time
I need my pager to reliably alert me when I have a message. That means repeating alerts until I respond and consistently alerting me when there is a new message. Thus app fails on both counts. The "number of repeats" setting is an illusion. I only get one alert. And the notification method is hit or miss, sometimes only vibrating when I should be getting sound, sometimes no alert at all. Restarting the iPhone seems to fix temporarily. I will be asking for pages to come via SMS text until this is fixed.
