"Never miss a pill"

Reviewed by / Apr 15, 2013

Remind yourself of taking the pill

PillReminder is an application set to help you remember to take your contraception method (pill, patch, ring) at an exact time every day. The app also stops on the pause period and starts again in the next period.

First of all, you'll need to select your contraception type and the number of pills you usually take. After configuring that, you can choose to enable the alarm and the time you want it to sound. The design is good and colorful, very girly; as for the preferences, you can easily change the information by accessing to the main settings.

A helpful tool for women who take contraception methods. bropatapps is the developer of PillReminder Lite and the full version with extra features and the possibility of creating themes.

All these things will be displayed in the calendar.

    Grafica da migliorare,che indichi l'assunzione o meno in un determinato giorno. La suoneria sarebbe più utile se fosse una suoneria che si possa sentire se non si ha il cellulare nelle vicinanze. Cmq molto valida, puntuale e precisa

    Love the app however the pop up right after comfirmation (which you said you fixed in the last version) still happens in my app. At least add the option to delete the entry. This way it says I took the pill from the next day.
