Nice app, 2 suggestions
This is a very nice app, but I have 3 suggestions. If it is possible to have an alarm like the clock alarm that comes with the ipad. You don't have to have the volume or chime button on to hear the alarm and it goes off until you tell it to snooze or turn off. Maybe make that an option for people who want to have the ability to mute it. But for people who need to hear the alarm and remind them to take it so they don't get distracted in between the alarm and taking the med. Also, if would be nice if (when you take a group of meds together) that you could put the individual meds in for the refill reminder, but have them grouped for taking them for the notification check box. This way it would be easier to say you took your entire pill box of meds but still have the ability to get refill reminders. Right now they are tied together and if I want to get reminders I have to check off the pills individually which be can be a bit much when trying to simplify med taking. Also, it would be great to have an option for meds taken every 2 or 3 days. Currently checking off which days of the week won't work as it changes each week on that schedule. But very nice app!!
Not keeping track now!
I've used this app for a while now, but something over the last few weeks has changed for the worst. The app now doesn't keep track of when I take my meds when I log the entries! This has caused some confusion a few times, but thankfully I use pill boxes with the days of the week on the little compartments. This is critical since I'm on a blood thinner.
As an example, when I take my morning dosages I log that in the app as "Taken as shown," but in a few hours it shows that I have NOT taken them. When I take my evening meds and log that in the app...it shows the next morning that I have NOT taken my evening meds. Basically...the app isn't working and I have to rely on my pill boxes to make sure I've taken my meds. But these reminders showing I haven't really confuses things.
This should be corrected soon as deleting and reinstalling the app hasn't worked. Nothing has so far. I'm not elderly, but one of my meds does make me a little forgetful. But if an elderly person was relying on this app alone they could be easily confused and possibly overdose! Please fix this bug soon!!
Great App! Small suggestion?
I love it. I love the effectiveness and the simple, professional design, and the over all user-friendliness of it. Definitely made with users in mind!
If I were to make one small suggestion, it would have to be that I would like the option to change the small chime reminder to more of an alarm-type for the meds I need to actually wake up to take. I'm a bit of a heavy sleeper, and while the little chime is great in the day, it just isn't cut out for waking me up. So maybe having a 'chose alert type' for every time-slot you enter in. Or maybe even a check-box for "If I haven't responded to the chime-style alert in X minutes, make an alarm-style alert" for when you don't have your phone near enough at that specific time.
Other than that, I absolutely love the app!
