Great App!

I’m a retired RN so I no longer have many of the contacts I had when I was working. However, “once a nurse always a nurse” and I still get asked a lot of questions about health issues and medications in particular. This app puts pertinent information at your fingertips in a manner that is both comprehensive and easy to access. I still encounter lots of people who have no idea what to expect from the medications they take but they swallow them anyhow because “the doctor said so”! This app supplies everything I need to educate folks about their meds.

Another wonderful feature is the ability to print out your medication profile to include allergies, medical conditions, procedures you’ve had done, vaccination history, a complete list of all your medical providers, and a full list of all your prescription and nonprescription medication. I’ve not met a doctor yet who isn’t impressed by the printed profile when you have a medical appointment.

Lastly, I find the ability to sync the entire program from my iPhone to and from my iPad invaluable! Great app!

If I could give negative stars, I would! I should have read the reviews prior to downloading and beginning to use this App. Unfortunately I did not and learned the hard way that this App is a Svam to get your personal medical information then immediately FORCE you to pay to proceed forward with accessing, modifying and/or deleting your medical information. In other words, they STEAL your medical info! Within minutes that I finished entering my prescription/medical information and clicked on the check interactions button, a pop up appeared with subscription options with the tagline to “help support a small family-run business”. There was absolutely NO way to close subscription screen or to decline until later, etc… nor was there any way to regain access to your personal medical information that you had already entered. I’m not an attorney, but this cannot be in compliance with HIPAA laws. I never consented to them stealing my personal medical information. I never clicked on an agreement prior to entering my information with the understanding that by doing so, I would be locked out of accessing my information without being forced to subscribe. This is intentional theft of our most personal and confidential medical information disguised as a helpful prescription tool, but is actually a smokescreen so the developers can stea our personal information and sell it on the open market. I’m all for supporting small family businesses, but not this one!!! User BEWARE!!!

Developer Response ,

I apologize for the confusion and frustration. I'm pasting my email response from April 2nd in case my response was caught by a spam/junk filter.


I apologize. That is not intended behavior. The subscription message is supposed to appear right away - with a free week trial before any payment is processed.

Let me give you a free lifetime subscription. Trust me, I’m not purposefully taking information prior to displaying a subscription message. Also please understand that the app doesn’t send your information off the device. It is not accessible or stored in a place other than your phone.

Go ahead and re-open the app, it should “just work” now. I used the anonymous user identified in your email below to grant you access through 12/31/2099.

Thank you for sending this note alerting me to this issue where the subscription screen is not displaying right away. I will get this fixed ASAP so other potential users aren’t similarly impacted.

Let me know if you have any other questions."

Everyone needs this app!

I fell in love with this app as soon as I started using it. This is something I really needed, keeping up with my own meds in addition to those of various family members. Very user friendly.
I’ve only ever had trouble with this app once. It either wouldn’t open, freeze on the main pain and possible a couple of other things, I don’t recall. I received immediate, very responsive attention after I reached out to get this fixed.

One reason I chose this app was because it was free, I don’t pay for apps. If I’m not mistaken, the bugs I mentioned above were not long after this change. I mentioned that I don’t pay for apps but would gladly pay for this one because it truly makes part of my life so much easier & that truly depend upon it but that I would not pay until it was working correctly.

App fixed, working perfectly, happy me, ready to pay.
Then he gives me a free subscription for my troubles! Very happy girl.

I had been using this app a few years before this issue occurred and while I don’t typically leave reviews, I intended to for this because it worked so well for me…I never did. Then, after the instance where I had difficulty, the speed in which my issues were resolved & the friendly response I knew I HAD to leave a review. So approximately six months later here it is.

Long review = Great product
