Reviewer: Sarah Bannerman, Pharmacist, Pharmacy Guild of New Zealand. September 2016 Clinical score: ★☆☆☆☆ Review: "This app is useful for patients who want to keep track of their medication and when to take them. In addition to creating medication lists and reminders of when to take particular medicines, the app also has provision for recording blood pressure, blood glucose and weight measurements." Safety concerns: The app does not allow users to store the units for the strength of their medicine. For example, if a user enters the medication name, warfarin and the strength of 2, there is no provision to enter milligrams, so this can be misinterpreted as warfarin 2 tablets. New Zealand relevance: ★★★☆☆ Comments: The pre-populated medication list is based on medications available in the US—medication brands may not be relevant in New Zealand, but medications can be stored by ingredient name."
