Description

Established in 2010, thousands use Dosecast, the most flexible and easy-to-use app for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad to help you remember to take your medications, vitamins, or birth control pills on time. Dosecast has been featured in Real Simple magazine and Reader's Digest, and declared best-of-breed by the New York Times. With Dosecast, you'll remember to take the right drug, the right way, at the right time, every time - with the help of these features, all included in the free edition: * RELIABLE NOTIFICATIONS * Dosecast reliably sends dose reminders with or without an internet connection. Dosecast also tracks the time zone you're in when travelling and adjusts reminders accordingly, so you get notified correctly no matter where you are. * 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, or even after a pre-set number of hours or days since the last dose. Plus, you can avoid dangerous overdoses by setting a maximum number of doses allowed per day or per 24 hours. * CUSTOMIZABLE DOSE AMOUNTS AND INSTRUCTIONS * With Dosecast, set the drug name, dosage information, directions, and notes that appear in the reminders for each dose. * POSTPONE-ABLE REMINDERS * With Dosecast, 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 when in transit so using Dosecast is safe even from a public access point. In addition to these features, the pro edition with CloudSync also includes the following: * MULTI-DEVICE SYNC * The Dosecast CloudSync service automatically keeps all your drug data up-to-date across an unlimited number of devices and enables dose reminders to be delivered to all devices simultaneously. * MULTIPLE DRUG TYPES * With Dosecast, you can track drugs taken via injections, inhalers, drops, sprays, ointments, patches, and liquid doses. You can even add custom drug types for tracking just about anything! * DOSE HISTORY AND COMPLIANCE * Dosecast logs the date and time of doses you take, skip, or postpone so you can view or email the history at any time. It even logs late and missed doses so you can accurately track your drug compliance. * 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! * MULTI-PERSON SUPPORT * With Dosecast, you can assign specific medications to different people (or even pets). Sort your medications by person, time of next dose, drug name, or drug type - so you can keep your whole family's medication schedule organized. * DOCTOR AND PHARMACY TRACKING * With Dosecast, you can use your contacts to track which doctor is prescribing which drug, as well as track the pharmacy and prescription number for each. * DRUG DATABASE * With Dosecast, entering drug information is easy! Simply pick your medication from our drug database to pre-populate the drug name, type, amount, strength, and route. (Available in the US only.) * CUSTOM DRUG PHOTOS * With Dosecast, you can take a photo 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. Confidently take the right drug, the right way, at the right time, every time with Dosecast!

  • Very useful to track intake provided it synchronizes

    Good app. Synchronization with other devices is still defective, which may lead to over medication. Needs urgent improvements.
  • Good but not great due to poor Cloud Sync

    We’ve used Dosecast successfully for several years but never loved it. Recently we tried using the Pro upgrade with Cloud Sync so I could help my wife monitor her many meds. Sad to say Cloud Sync is half baked. The sync process is supposed to happen automatically but I find we have to repeatedly swipe down to initiate a sync on both her phone and mine. Sometimes it takes 3-4 swipes to get data synced, sometimes even that doesn’t work. And each swipe takes way too long. We still use Dosecast, but keep looking for a better solution.

    This is one great app. For men of a certain age.
  • Last update wiped everything out

    So I had been using this app for years with little issue. But the last update wiped out all my data. Over five years of logs concerning my medication all gone. Support, aside from an initial email saying they were investigating, has been completely silent.
  • Tracks elapsed time since last dose!

    Finding an app that tracked elapsed time since the last dose wasn't as easy to find as you would think. I take a med every 4 hours but don't always need to take it at a set time. I wanted to track when I took a dose and to start counting 4 hours after that. This app does it very simply and easily. I love it.
  • Lost all stored meds

    This latest update completely wiped out my stored meds. I have been using this app for probably 7 years. This is a real disappointment. Now I have to take time to re-enter everything.
  • Don’t update :/

    Liked it, paid for it for a good while, might have paid for it again, but this update wiped all my information. It’s now deleted. Thanks for saving me money, I guess.

    This new update is a straight up money grab, and erased all my information.
  • Multi Year Review

    3+ year user. Dosecast is super flexible. It allows for multi takes of the same drug. Love the postpone when away from medications. Set it however long you like and it will remind you then. Love the ability to photograph the pill and attach it to the reminder. The one thing I wish it would do is allow greater flexibility in assigning sounds to alarms. I’m hearing impaired and have “loud” sounds for when I have my hearing aids out. I’ve tried a few different apps but this one wins out. If you need reminders to take medications this is the app for you.
  • Hours Interval setting!!

    By b-loveyou
    This is the only medication reminder that I have found to have the capability to automatically adjust your next reminder based on the amount of hours intervals you need to take the next medication. For instance: a medication that needs to be taken every 4 hours “after last dosage taken”. So I set a reminder for 6 am (and 4 hours after that throughout the day), but I overslept and took it at 8 am. The next reminder automatically adjusted all future reminders to go for 4 hours after 8 am. On other apps I have to manually adjust all set reminders for that day to adjust for the “delay” in taking my medication. Otherwise, the next reminder would come at 10 am (which is 2 hours too soon to safely take the next dose of medication.) It’s important to have a flexible reminder app because it’s not reality to always take your meds at the EXACT same time each and every dosage in your day. Life happens and you have to be flexible to what is REALITY. So a pill reminder app should also be FLEXIBLE, and automatically adjust your next reminder time accordingly. Otherwise, Meds taken too often too close to the last dose can cause health issues or emergency problems. The only thing I’d change about this FREE version is that it would be a little cleaner in the reminder list. It shows too much detail on the main screen listing of meds. But that’s just appearance. I’m still rating his app at a 5 because of this FLEXIBLE capability to automatically adjust your next reminder based on how many hours between the last taken dosage time.
