Continuously Reminds to take medications

Krissh0222 on

I love the feature called “Nagging Reminders” to remind user to take medication until it is marked as taken. Lot of apps on the App store don’t use that feature. Because a lot of times I just don’t care about the time and I forgot to take medication over the time, but Pillboxie keeps on reminding me every minute until I take it. If the development team continued to develop it, this app would be in top 10 medication reminders for sure.

Loosing my list

CoolBana on

No reminders on my new iPhone. Looked at my list and most of the pills were missing Re-entered them today, and they’re in the list but not in the reminder. See that this app hasn’t been updated in 6 years. Guess I’ll be app shopping

Still the Best Medicine reminder out🩵💊

iKaff on

I’ve been using this app for over 7 years. Pillboxie is easy to use to remember my medication. Other medicine reminders are complicated and not as customizable and visibly appealing. That’s one of my favorite features. The photos I use. Also Scheduling a reminder is easy by just dropping a pill into a pillbox. I also love that you don’t have to have Wi-Fi connection to use it. Always reminds me of schedule even when the phone is on sleep mode. Just a great app to have.😃

5 years later and this app is working great.

Pillboxie is a godsend

mshasegawa on

It is now May 2023. I don’t blame the dev even if this app is abandoned. It has been so many years and I know just maintaining dev status is a financial burden. But dev, please know that this app has helped me tremendously in maintaining my meds regimen over the years. I have issues with the heart and take a lot of meds multiple times a day. Other apps, including Apple’s own, just doesn’t cut it with me. Thank you for this app. Previous review: It is July 2020. Thank god this app is still working. I’m not exaggerating when I say this app keeps me alive. I just saw an update made by Apple. Something about a certificate. I am scared to update. I don’t know what I’ll do when one day Pillboxie stops working... My review from a few years ago: Every time iOS gets rev’d, I’m afraid that Pillboxie will stop working. This isn’t the fault of the dev; I understand that the effort necessary to keep this app updated may not necessarily pay off from business standpoint. But please, please keep this app functionally updated. I’ve been using this app for many years now, and, this app is critical to my health. If this app was not free, I will still happily pay to get to use it. Perhaps the dev can include some way for me to donate, so that I can show my appreciation for this important app. Thank you dev for this wonderful app to keep me honest with all the medication I need to take daily, to stay healthy and alive. Meanwhile, I’m going to go purchase some of the other apps offered by the dev. Thank you, Michael

Add these features!

There needs to be some sort of way to do PRN (as needed meds). Also, there is no way to insert transdermal and suppository medications. Please add these! Until you do I can't use this app! I was looking for a way to organize my meds, looks like I will have to keep looking!

Repeat alarm setup needs work

MellyEV on

I really need something in between "alarm that goes off once a minute (even though I can snooze)" and "no repeat alarm at all." Since my medication is to treat anxiety there was no middle ground between screaming at the once per minute feature and just flat out forgetting when I turned it off. If you're wondering, "how can that stress someone out so much," I bet you've never needed anxiety medication! Anyway, this app would be totally perfect for me if that was an adjustable feature (like every 10 minutes! 20!). Alarm-alarm-alarm-then-snooze is so irritating for me, and the alternative being no repeating at all renders it totally ineffective for me.

Update this app

Hoofenhoffer on

For the love of god can we please update this app? It looks horrible and it crashes every time I use it.

International App store

Alienoty on

Please make available for international app store


Grannnd on

I have been using this app for year. It never lets me down. It’s very easy to edit. It actually keeps me alive because I never forget to take my pills.
