This is a well thought out app that is a breeze to use, even for an old guy (60) like me. As my wife had a stroke that left her 80% paralysed on her left side, I have become a full-time caregiver. I am also a self employed surveyor, and now, chief cook and bottle washer too. With current medications and insulin doses for her type 1 diabetes, and recent double absess teeth extracted, I am way over the top with caregiving. This Pill Reminder app has been an incredible blessing! It's so customizable as a pill reminder but it is worth way more than that!! It can help a person on the job that needs to take a measurement every so often or just remind yourself to try to call someone to make sure they are doing ok, or pretty much any kind of reminder a person needs. It allows you to take a photo of whatever you need to be reminded of and not nag you to death if you need a little more time yo finish a previous task. I highly recommend this PILL REMINDER application to anyone that needs a reminder now and again for anything!!!

Works well

Works well for me with multiple meds and scheduling. I like the iCloud back up and restore but would like to see automatic syncing across devices.

Lifesaver app - excellent

Now that I have to remember to put 2 sets of drops in my eyes, 4 times a day on different schedules plus other meds as well, this app has been a lifesaver. Or at least an eye saver. My only remark is that in it’s comprehensiveness it’s a little complicated at first to set up. But once it’s done it’s easy to change schedules and add meds. I recommend this app highly for caregivers too because it allows for different patients, and their particular meds and schedules.
