Dosecast Features

Dosecast is available in 2 editions: the Free edition, and the Pro edition with CloudSync.

Features in the Free Edition

The Free edition includes the following features:

Reliable Notifications

 
  • Reliably sends dose reminders with or without an internet connection.
  • Tracks the time zone you are in and adjusts reminders accordingly, so you get notified at the right time no matter where you are.
  • Optionally schedules backup reminders for a configurable period later (e.g. 5 minutes) in case the original reminder isn’t noticed.
 

Flexible Scheduling

 
  • Schedules doses on a daily/weekly/monthly schedule, every few days or weeks, or after a pre-set number of hours or days since the last dose.
  • Tracks the maximum number of doses allowed per day or per 24 hours.
  • Enables doses to be logged later (in case you forgot your device at the time the dose was due).
  • Enables doses to be skipped before or after their scheduled time.
 

Customizable Dose Amounts and Instructions

 
  • Tracks the drug name, dosage information, and directions, which are displayed in the reminders for each dose.
  • Tracks notes for each drug, such as what the drug is for and what side effects to watch out for.
 

Postpone-able Reminders

 
  • Enables reminders to be postponed by a custom duration before or after they appear.
  • Multiple overdue doses may be postponed as a group or individually.
 

Smart Silencing

 
  • Tracks start and end of bedtime and start and end of each treatment so there are no unwanted alarms.
  • Notifications may be switched off or drugs archived during pauses in the treatment.
 

Privacy and Security

 
  • No personally identifiable information is collected.
