Pill identifier app

T this app is very helpful and very informative. I am glad to be able to use it. I’m grateful that they make it accessible. They should make it for free though because because we’re just trying to identify pills so that they stay safe and out of children’s hands

BUYER BEWARE - Don’t Waste Your Money

It does not work, folks. It correctly identified 1 pill out of 5 and I gave up. Suggestions it gave on the 5 wrong were wild. If the Developer were in it for anything but a cash grab, they would offer a limited free trial. They don’t because it doesn’t and now they have your money. It’s a great idea but this isn’t it. There would be half a dozen or more apps out there like this if the technology was there. It’s clearly not or maybe others are just smart enough to to assume the liability. I thought maybe other users weren’t using it properly so I ignored the previous reviews. I shouldn’t have.
