Known issue: this might seem obvious to some, but if you accidentally turn off the volume of your iPhone, you will only receive a vibrate alert. However, reminders will still appear on your home screen. This is a known limitation of the iPhone OS and is beyond our control.

Pill Reminder is definitely a contender for the top, umm, pill reminder solution on the App Store. It's got the basic features I've expected 'til now from an app in this category---keeping a list of medications and reminding you to take them on a schedule---along with features that have become more important to me, like the ability to log medications taken "as needed" and to email your meds list and dosing history to others.
It's not a pretty app, but it should do everything you need. Two problems for me, though, mean I'll be looking for something else:
- The Reminders (today) view doesn't show the time you took your medication, except for those taken as needed---it shows the scheduled time. This makes it difficult to get an overall sense of your day's dosing events.
- If you're taking meds on an "every nn hours" schedule, the app doesn't reschedule your reminders based on the time you actually took your dose. For example, if you're scheduled to take a drug at 7am and every four hours after that, taking the drug at 7:20 doesn't set the next reminder to 11:20am instead of 11am. As a result, you could be taking your medication early.
These issues may not matter to you. And the app is free. Download and decide for yourself.
"Pill Reminder" could literally save your life some day!
This app is incredible. I have two genetic illnesses and have to take many different medications at very specific times. If I am having a flare-up and forget to take one of my Meds this app reminds me and my wife exactly what I need to take, the exact dose, and when to take it.
If you have any medical conditions which require daily medications to be taken at specific times you need to add this app to your collection. "Pill Reminder" could literally save your life some day!
I've been using Pill Reminder for a year now. I looked at several apps before choosing this one and I am very pleased with it. It's handled every situation I've had from tracking multiple users (me and 2 cats), multiple meds taken multiple times a day, meds taken every other or every 3rd day, and prn meds. Notes section is useful for noting changes in medications and symptoms and side effects. I have recommended this app to friends and family.
