What's New in Version 2.41
January 2015 data update
It does what it says - finds pills by marking
This app is something that was missing:
Recognizing pills by their markings & birdsongs.
If you know anyone, or help anyone manage their pill minders - it can be daunting to track many medications and schedules. This does what it says: It identifies pills. I wouldn’t say it was easy.
Using this tells you what a jumble it is to be a pharmacist. All it does is search the db for the meds & deliver choices. It did not find any pills in the shape of Fred Flintstone, however.
This rates the app back to itself. I can’t rate this against similar applications, because I won’t buy every one to assess them properly.
What would be useful:
Being able to capture identification information by groupings locally would be useful. You can do that now, with screenshots.
It means that one has to trust that a person has kept the medication screenshots current & the onus is placed on the user for accuracy.
This is the ONLY pill identifier I will ever use, and I've tried probably every one of them!
It even tells you what meds will interact or interfere with the ones you're already taking.
I love this app!! Everyone needs this particular app if u take more than one kind of medicine!!!
Especially maintenance type meds ( High BP, cholesterol, ect..) I even went ahead and paid for the Pro edition. It's worth every penny! I'd give it more than 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️s if it gave me the option!
If you want to know what pill is, this app will tell you. If you find a pill on the floor or in your teenager's pocket, within a minute, you will know what it is, what it's for & more. I use it all the time. It's one of the most useful apps I have!!
