Ratings and Reviews
makes taking many vitamins super easy
i take many vitamins throughout the day, plus a prescription. this app suggests organizing “events” like “breakfast” and “dinner”. For each event you list the pills you need to tske. you vould also add an event like “before tennis” for sunscreen or “after swimming” for moisturizer. it’s pretty smooth. there’s an image thst shows you examples.
Too rigid to be useful
I really wanted to like this app. Developer is very responsive. Unfortunately, it’s just too inflexible.
Some medications need to be scheduled before or after meals (or both before and after). The app allows you to postpone the end time of the range in 15 minute increments, but not the beginning.
For instance, if I wasn’t able to eat breakfast until later, I would have to delay a medication originally scheduled for 8am to now be taken at 10am. The app now shows that the med can be taken any time between 8am & 10pm. That’s not accurate, because the med can’t be taken prior to 10am.
Also, the app doesn’t allow updating actions on mandatory medications. If I accidentally hit skip because my hands are shaky, there’s no way to fix this. The developer recommends changing the setting to “not mandatory”, but this doesn’t make sense because the medication is mandatory, and I took it, but the app won’t let me document it.
Medications categorized as not mandatory can have their actions updated. (Or at least they will be able to when the bug is fixed; developer is aware.)
If you’re a robot and do everything exactly the same time every day, never have to modify your schedule, and never make a mistake, this app is for you.
If you need a medication tracking app that’s flexible and works for real life, this isn’t it.
Developer Response ,
Dear User. The App is designed to be flexible! Maybe you think you have to wait for the alert signal before you can take your medication, but that is not the case. You can take the medication anytime within the specified interval, the App will only alert you when you forget.
Yes, one can not postpone the beginning time of an event! But why should you? The objective of the postpone function is to allow you to postpone your medication when you can not take it on time, not to force you to take it later.
Now (since version 3.40) one can undo mistakes! If you touch "confirm" or "skip" by misstake you can now enter the "revert mode" to undo that mistake!
We hope you give Pills Ping a second try! Most people find it to be both flexible and reliable.
Phenomenal !!!!!!!!!! Just need the discharge & note additions to be complete.
