Features in the Free Edition
The Free edition includes the following features:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Tracks start and end of bedtime and start and end of each treatment so there are no unwanted alarms.

Privacy and Security
