Best reminder yet


I have had a handful of prescription reminder over the last 8 or so years. Some failed to work after Apple updated their OS, which is the reason I purchased the full version of this APP. For me, the APP does exactly what I needed and then some. I recently had a full knee replacement so keeping on top of the pain is critical for me. The reminders are outstanding for this and being able to see the daily history is a great help. After using the APP for about a week, it dawned on me that the reminder system would also work for keeping track of my daily exercises. I treat the exercise like medication and I use the instruction box to input the instruction from the Physical Therapist. I use the notes box to track my progress. Since I just stated, I am not sure how many characters are allowed in this boxes.

The only thing that I word like to see in a future release is an automated syncing to all of my devices like I see in other APPs. There is a feature in the APP that accomplishes the same thing, but it is a manual process, which you must remember to do.

Super helpful


Just needed an app to remind me to give my toddler her medication every 8 hours- and surprisingly it was hard to find an app that would do that! This one works perfectly for this- gives me a reminder ahead of time and snoozes/reminds me until I check “taken”.
Another key feature is that I can set the meds to be taken at the same time every day- it doesn’t just count every X hours. For example, I set it at 7.5 hours so that I didn’t have to give her meds at such crazy early or late hours- I was worried the app would just add 7.5 hours to the last time I scheduled her meds every day, changing that time every day- but it did NOT- it stayed 7am, 2:30pm and 10pm for each day. I know this seems silly, but sometimes they don’t think of things like this when they make apps!!
Long review- but this App really made this awful chore a bit easier for me! Thanks!

Helpful but needs work


I purchased the full version of this app and find it worth the money. The interface is easy to read and the integration with a calendar is useful. Email feature is great especially if you’re helping someone manage their needs remotely. That said, a few revisions/additions would bring this app to 5 stars. First, the programming is laborious and can get confusing with multiple medications and multiple dosing. It isn’t always possible to enter a prescription as written on the label so you have to figure out a way to program the medication dosage schedule on the app to follow the prescribed schedule. Cumbersome. Second, cloud backup feature would be great. Third, pill icons too limited and can get confusing. Any way to link with medication database online for greater accuracy? Fourth, multiuser feature to alert you about relative’s medications, for example. These suggestions are not essential but would upgrade the utility of this app IMHO.
