What's New in Version 2.2.2
Exactly what I needed
I spent the evening in the ER a few nights ago, and came out with a kidney stone diagnosis and four prescriptions. Saw a specialist a couple days later and was given yet another prescription.
In addition, I'm supposed to keep up on regular doses of Tylenol and Ibuprofen. Oh, and my spring allergies have kicked in, so there are two allergy meds to keep track of.
The last thing I want to do when I'm hurting is count which pills I took when and how long until the next dose. This app lets me enter all of the medications, the interval for each, and gives me a very clear visual indicator whether I can take a specific med yet or not. And for the ibuprofen and Tylenol, an alert lets me know it's time to take them, so I can stay on top of this pain.
I paid for the upgrade, but for what it's saving me in confusion and frustration, it's worth ten times that.
Good app but needs better selection of medication times
The app works well especially in paid version.
However, the app would be much better if it permitted you to specify times to take the pills.
I take pills 3 times a day. However, I take 1pill twice a day but at the same time as the others. There is no way to enter that. Also if you miss or are late you have to readjust times to the previous level. Otherwise the alarms work, the feature to record dose and have new time automatically selected are good features
Wish it worked.
This was easy to set up. And when it works, it does great, but that is the problem. For some reason it keeps "losing" entries. This morning, as I took my pills, I recorded the entries into the app. Just now I looked at it to see when I could take my next pain pill and there were no entries recorded for today at all. :-(. I hate having to resort back to pen and paper, but I just can't depend on this. Honestly, wish I could.
