What's New in Version 1.10
Various bug fixes.
I've previously written a review with my complaints, but I have now discovered that I cannot edit a medications quantity without also altering the entire history of what I have taken.
Example: I used to take one of a particular pill twice a day. That has changed per my doctor's recommendations to taking two pills now twice today if I see fit. I have the autonomy to make that change myself, however, I must have two separate entries in the app in order to use it that way. There is no good way to correctly correlate the quantity left of a particular medication when there are multiple entries being used to track the taking of it. This is a very frustrating app… Especially since it's the best I have found so far and is so fraught with these problems.
Not so good any more!
Since I last reviewed this, I switched to a different app because I had a medication I had to take every 3 days. I couldn't figure out how to do that with this app. (I am a computer guru, so if I can't figure it out, it must be hard or not doable). It got off that medication, and switched back to this. The function of this app used to be better than the other one I went to...key word USED TO! It doesn't give me the notifications unless I open the app now. That isn't very helpful to me! My meds tend to make me forgetful, thus the reason for the med reminders. If I have to remember to open the app, then I can probably remember to take the meds on my own!
Best I've found so far
I can't schedule a one off ahead of time (for example taking premed a for a scan), I can take a batch (ex morning Meds) all at once if it's not the "Just taken" or "as shown" option. If I want an accurate log I must enter the odd time for each one individually. This is a problem. It also doesn't provide an alarm function of some sort. These are all important functions!! I'll keep using until I find something better or (hopefully) this one is improved with updates.
I would also like to be able to see my upcoming schedule.
