The Pill is optimized for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch.
Have you ever forgotten to take your birth control pill ? It can happen to any of us but now with The Pill iPhone App, it may never happen again.
The Pill will remind you to take your birth control pill every day at a time you choose, with a local notification alert (similar to an SMS). The application does not need to be running in order to receive the alert. Works also in plane mode.
Why not set yourself an alarm on your mobile?
The Pill iPhone app is much more than a simple alarm.
The Pill automatically calculates the 7 days stop period, and the 21 days when you are actually taking the pill. If you are using a 28 day pack then alerts will be sent to you every day. Alerts will not be sent during the 7 days stop period, they only occur during the 21 days when you are actually taking your pill.
You can see exactly when you have to take your pill, compare your real package with the one in the actual application and see if you have missed a pill or not.
Other features include:
- Customizable alert sound and background color
- Alerts received via email
- Extra alert request option
The female contraceptive pill is the most popular method of contraception, with 38% of women currently taking it. However, the Pill needs to be used consistently and correctly in order to be effective. Some types of contraceptive pill have to be taken at exactly the same time every day. This is why this iPhone app, The Pill, is so important to help prevent unwanted or unplanned pregnancies.
Advice: take your pill in the morning, if ever you forget to take it, you still can remember it during the day, it won't be too late (after getting asleep, you increase the risk to be more than 12 (or 3) hours late).

Ratings and Reviews
This app is a little too simple. I could use the alarm on my phone and it would be just as effective. I also wish that it had more options like what brand you use, a calendar for when you have your period, any side effects you're having. Also there were a lot of spelling errors. This app should be free. It has the potential to be a great app, and I can't wait to see any new updates.
This app is great. Has every kind of pill there is (as far as I can tell) and is even a little customizable. You can choose between two looks for the home page and several ring tones for the alarm. Has a discreet mode that I don't understand the purpose of. The only thing that could make this app better would be for the last week to have a reminder every day to get your refill!!
I really like this app! It's very useful and reminds me to take my pill everyday. You set the time in once and the rest is done for you. You get a reminder via text everyday, depending on the time you put in. I However, I wish the design was a bit more descreet since its visible on my iPhone.
