One of the new arrivals in the BlackBerry App World called Medication Reminder certainly caught our eye. It is one of those apps that you see that make you think: “Wow, I wonder why no one had thought of this before!” Basically, Medication reminder does what it says, it reminds you to take your medicine, eat specific meals, or go to the doctor in a way that is stylish and easy to set up.
How many people forget their medication? While vitamins and health supplements can be taken at pretty much any point during the day, some medicines are time-sensitive, and missing a dose can lead to medical complications. An easy way to avoid this happening to you is to setup reminders for yourself using this app, and never miss a dose again.
You can set it up for several different people; for example, for different members of your family. Each person can have their own personal reminders setup under different profiles. Reminders are also highly customizable and easy to set up. All you need is to enter your data in order to set it up and the app does the rest. It does this while also looking really stylish. It also seems that the people behind this BlackBerry app have put a lot of thought into making sure that Medication Reminder is reliable, persistent, trustworthy, and easy to set up – characteristics that are very important when you are talking about potential life and death stuff!
Advantages of Using This Over a Calendar App
In fact, it is this reliability that answers the most common complaint about Medication Reminder: why use this app if you can set up your calendar to do the same thing? Well, in theory you can, but it is not as easy to use and set up, and for recurring medications or diets that have highly specific times or that need to be changed often, doing it from the calendar can be a hassle, especially if you use the calendar to schedule other activities. It is easy to get mixed up, something that you definitely do not want happening when you’re talking about medication, doctor’s appointments, or specific dietary needs.
Having all of this in a specific app is a welcome addition to the BlackBerry AppWorld, especially since it is attractive to look at and very intuitive. This app comes from Pace MobiTech and, at $1.99 USD, is well worth the price, although it does have a free version with fewer features. There are few apps that you can trust your life with, but Medication Reminder does that literally.
Of course, it is also important to understand what Medication Reminder doesn’t do. Medication Reminder will not give you medical advice or diagnosis in any way. What it will do is remind you to take your medication on time, go to your doctor’s appointments and, in the case of diabetics or dieters, take your meals exactly when you need them. So if you’re one to forget your appointments or miss medicine doses, this app is perfect for you.
