• Verify pill - Drug ID will analyze the image to provide color and shape of pill. Simply submit the imprint.

• Pill results - Results are sorted and driven by most exact match based on recognition. When match is found, click on the pill for more details ie: brand name, generic name, strength, imprint, etc.

• Learning technology - Drug ID uses a learning technology that teaches itself to improve based on the number of images taken and analyzed by the software. Once cropped the technology will attempt to recognize the shape and color of your pill.

What a blessing

This app just helped me decipher some pills that I found in kids room. They ended up being no big deal, but this is a great tool for everyone, as you never know!

You could just use google to identify the pill, taking a picture of it doesn’t do much as it does ask you to type in the imprint on the pill and then the color and shape of the pill.

Absolutely Useless (Use Google)

Purchased to ID meds my mom takes and occasionally drops. Tried on 3 very common meds and it was 0 for 3. Typed info into Google and it was 3 for 3. Total waste of time and money!
