Please read before buying this app. I am sorely disappointed.
I have purchased/used over $100 in apps for my iPhones/iPad/iPod Touch and have never come across an app as bad and useless as this one. It failed at every attempt to identify any over the counter meds or prescriptions meds. The only thing positive I can say about this app is that it has an excellent concept. I just wished/ hoped/wanted the result to be as good. It gives you 10 selections to choose from as possible results and none of them are even close. I know it's only $5 but my money is hard earned. I never write reviews let alone negative reviews because I feel as though if someone put in due diligence there work should be given a chance to speak for them. Well, in this case, it has and those words are a resounding "Do Not Buy This App". Apple should allow for a zero star rating but since I can't post without at least one star, undeservedly, I give it my one star.
It simply doesn't work.
Pill ID apps are all frustrating to use. You have to fit a description of the pill you're trying to identify into some narrow list of descriptions (is it yellow, off white, tan, cream, white, round, oval, oblong) and it never seems to find my exact pill. This app seemed to offer the proper solution, take a photo of your pill and it will ID it! Perfect. But it simply doesn't work. You have to print out this stupd sheet of paper and place the pill on a black square, then photograph it on the square. If you don't have the print out you can't use the app. That however doesn't really matter because even with the print out the app NEVER ID's a pill properly. You just end up with a long list of possibilies and the pill I'm looking for has never once been there. This is a VERY expensive app that in no way does what it claims to do. Do not buy this app.
Bought the app, opened it, was sent to the disclaimer page and a notification appeared asking if I had downloaded the "card" yet. I replied "no" and the disclaimer page reappeared followed by the same white notification card. This time I pressed the "yes" button and the same things returned. Pressing "I agree" didn't do anything. Can't quite remember how I extracted myself from this dead-end loop - ♻️ - but for $4.99, I'm 💿sure I can find some games that are more fun to play! By the way, where does the line for refunds form?👈🏻👆🏻👇🏻👉🏻
