Dosecast - Medication Reminder

Dosecast - Medication Reminder


Dosecast reminds you to take your medications, vitamins, or birth control pills on time, and tracks your medication adherence. It has been featured in the New York Times, Real Simple magazine, Reader's Digest, About.com, Fierce Mobile Healthcare, and iMedicalApps.com. Remember to take the right drug, the right way, at the right time, every time, with Dosecast. Now compatible with Android Wear!

Dosecast is flexible and easy-to-use, with these features in the free edition:

★ RELIABLE NOTIFICATIONS: Dosecast reliably sends dose reminders to your phone, tablet or Android Wear device and lets you postpone them, like a snooze button. If you miss the first reminder, Dosecast can nag you until you respond. It can also sound a continuous alarm. Dosecast updates your reminder times as you travel and move across time zones.

★ FLEXIBLE SCHEDULING: Some apps can only remind you to take your medication at the same time every day. Only Dosecast helps you take doses on a daily/weekly/monthly schedule, every X days/weeks, only on certain days of the week, or even after a pre-set number of hours or days since the last dose. Avoid dangerous overdoses by setting a maximum number of doses allowed per day or per 24 hours.

★ CUSTOMIZABLE DOSE AMOUNTS AND INSTRUCTIONS: Set the drug name, dosage information, directions, and notes that appear in the reminders for each dose. You can also track each drug's expiration date.

★ POSTPONE-ABLE REMINDERS: You can postpone a reminder before or after it goes off - by however long you need.

★ SMART SILENCING: Dosecast tracks when you're sleeping and when your treatment begins and ends, so there are no unwanted alarms.

★ PRIVATE AND SECURE: No personally identifiable information is collected when using Dosecast, so you can keep your information private. All drug information is encrypted, even when in transit, so using Dosecast is safe even from a public access point.

★ Available with Premium Upgrade: QUANTITY TRACKING AND REFILL ALERTS: Dosecast tracks the remaining quantity of each drug you enter and delivers a refill alert when running low. It will even track the number of refills remaining and alert you when you have no refills left! [Premium Version Only.]

★ Available with Premium Upgrade: CUSTOM DRUG PHOTOS: Take your own photos of each drug to identify it more easily. With drug photos, you can be sure you're taking the right drug when a dose is due. [Premium Version Only.]

Really useful. Well organised. Useful drug name reference. Reliable. Only flaw for five stars - app sometimes very slow to respond when accessed from notification to record dose.

Nexus 4. Premium edition Love this app. Wish it had an option to take same med in different dosage at different times of day without going in to change every day. Specifically insulin. 2 units morning , 1 unit lunch, and 3 units dinner. Would be perfect then. Also would be nice if blood sugar level could be logged before taking insulin's. Then all could be sent to doctor at once.

Never a sync... Yeah all about privacy... Add the feature, suggest people NOT use it, but then we will have the choice. Really need to install all this on a tab, and not have to reenter it all in the phone. Then if I hit, take meds, then both tab and phone updated.. Please consider. Raised to 4 stars for fast support reply, pending 5 stars in seeing if new feature is added.
