Sorta helpful, buggy
The best thing about this app is that it texts you to remind you to take your dose. After that, it’s pretty useless. If you log your dose late it says you’re 87% on track. How is that helpful? I usually take my dose on time but forget to log it. I agree that logging times would be good. I’d also like to see a calendar so that you can see when your refill’s due. Finally this app is so buggy. Time for an update. This morning it reminded me of my dose but wouldn’t let me log it.
From bad to worse!
This app has gone from slightly annoying to buggy and just bad. It’s craving an update! I tell the app I take my med twice a day but it still has been recording me as 92% on track. I tried telling it I took an extra dose to see if it would get to 100% but it just gave me a warning to not take extra and if I did to go to the ER. I guess that’s not bad but seriously, why isn’t it saying 100? It also needs to let you add a dose in if you took it but forgot to log it or to be able to change the time on when it was taken. There are times when it won’t let me log a dose even when connected to WiFi. It should be able to track a dose even if no WiFi is available like when I was taking a dose on an airplane. But that’s a no go. A few days this week it wasn’t giving me my notifications at the correct time it was two hours late even though my phone said the correct hour. A med that cost this much for such a cheap chemical- and they do so much PR and selling on this med so it should have a better app if it’s going to have one at all. At $7,500 a month per customer you’d expect them to put some of the advertising budget to the app.
I really liked the idea of logging my pills and getting reminders. Forgetting my pills was the number 1 reason I switched meds for a short time, but this app is a incredibly confusing to use. When you log a dose, you get a percentage of compliance. It can be 200% (how is that possible?) 87%, 100+%. I have no idea what it is tracking. And if you log a dose right after you take it, but before your reminder, you still get the reminder. Plus there is a lot of tecfidera tips sent at you, which makes figuring out if you logged things in correctly difficult. I may need to look for a different app that is a little more clear cut and easy to use.
UPDATE After using this app for 2 months, I am more convinced than ever of its flaws. It is always reminding me to take a dose AFTER I have logged a dose and then telling me to go to the hospital because I have taken too much. There is too much other information sent as well. This makes it difficult to see if you have taken the days dose. I am discontinuing use now. I found a different app that works much better.
