Just a few things

Would really like to see a few things changed or improved. First, I'd like to be able to backdate when medications start or stop. I would also like to change the trade name or brand of a medication e.g., from a generic Apotex name to the Sandoz alternative. Finally, I'd appreciate a dark mode -- too much whitespace for midnight life admin. Thanks heaps

Developer Response ,

Hi Tim, thanks for your feedback on the MedicineWise app. We will take on board your suggestions for improvement. With regards to backdating the start date - this is something we are currently working on and will release this feature in the near future. We will also be implementing a medicine stop date that archives your medicines and stops reminders at that particular date. Kind regards, MedicineWise App Support.

Crucial but UNRELIABLE

Please fix bugs. I rely on this app. It regularly crashes in the middle of using it. I often have to fully log back in instead of just using pin and then sometimes it won’t log me in. Every single operation I perform it says sync failed while syncing. It does sync eventually. Sync is slow though.

After a crash: When I log back in it initially says there’s no medicines listed for me. Once I back-button to the dashboard with my name and my partner’s name then go back into medicines/reminders the info is still there. However, when going back into reminders some of the medicine details are missing while the orange ‘take’ button is still visible.

I need a good, reliable app for this stuff. I’m extremely unwell with a lot of chronic illnesses. I also care for my partner who has complex needs. I just don’t have the time or tolerance to deal with the frustration this gives me. I invested a lot of time entering all my data and continuing to maintain it accurately. It’s energy I don’t have to waste. I’ll be looking for another app now. I’m also transitioning to a pen and paper system.

Used for previous medication but won’t load new

I’ve added all my previous medicines with no problem , but when I try to add my most recent one it stops me just before the end. I get to the dosage screen. You put in frequency, and time and I use 1, starting date and set alarm And then there’s a message please enter all dosage information but there’s nothing more to fill in!
I’ve tried multiple times on my iphone and even downloaded the app on to my ipad and tried there. The only difference is that on the iPad I can write 1 cap but it still comes up with the same message. Very disappointing! Please let me know if there’s a workaround

Developer Response ,

Hi Rosiemary, we have default values entered into all fields of that frequency screen (e.g. 1 tablet, 8:00AM dose time, start date 05/07/2019) that you will need to still tap into to acknowledge/accept, before you can proceed to the next screen - we recommend you tap into all fields on this screen before you tap 'Next' and you will find this allows you to proceed on. We acknowledge that app users like yourself have unfortunately found this design confusing, and we will make sure this screen is easier to use in our upcoming releases. We apologise for the inconvenience this is causing you at the moment. Regards, MedicineWise Support
