    "Never miss a 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.

    PillReminder reminds you to take your contraception (pill/patch/ring) at the desired time every day, stopping reminders automatically on the pause period (contraception type specific) and rescheduling automatically when the next period starts. Plan ahead using the calendar if you want to be reminded on certain days sooner or later to take the prevention or whether you want to skip the next pause period.

    Now you can plan in advance the following:

    - Skipping contraception pause
    - Delaying contraception notification
    - Changing contraceptive
    - Starting new contraception cycle

    All these things will be displayed in the calendar.


    - Configurable daily reminder time with timezone support and on/off switch
    - Different pill/patch/ring type templates
    - NuvaRing and Ortho Evra support
    - Custom pill/patch/ring type support
    - Manage contraception packs (includes reminder to buy some)
    - Snooze reminders
    - Change contraception type preserving the history
    - Custom notification message
    - Configurable automatic snooze interval
    - Log: shows you when and what contraception you have taken
    - Google Backup Service
    - Possibility to take the contraception sooner (within the actual day)
    - Possibility to snooze the contraception in advance (displays in the calendar view- within the actual day or future days)
    - Calendar displays if you have taken, forgotten or delayed the contraception
    - Take notes in the calendar and add a reminder time
    - Plan ahead to skip a contraception pause from the calendar view
    - Supports portrait and landscape mode
    - Themes
    - Create your own themes (integrated custom theme creation)

    I've been using this app for years. Most birth control apps only work with pills. This app works with pills, patches, and NuvaRing. This is hugely important to me because I use the ring. The app is easy to navigate. It has a great discreet widget for your home screen that shows how many days into the cycle you are. It also notifies you when it is time to remove and insert your ring. I have not use

    I really love this app. It has never forget an alarm and with every update there are new useful features. I really like now that you are able to skip the pause. What I'm missing now is to add a pause at any random day. Thanks for that great reliable app

    love this app! Best one I've seen that works well for Nuvaring and other non-daily forms of birth control. temporary time delay is like a snooze button, great for if you're on the go at reminder time.
