Round: Meds app

I take a few different medications, heck I joke we're I to jump I might just rattle.

A few years back my pharmacy had me subscribe to an app to remind me when my meds were getting low, I could then press a button to just order and pick up later that day, it was quite good. Sadly they decided against continuing with the service, moving to SMS messages that were weeks ahead oh my needing a refill.

I did rely upon the SMS messages but would delay my response, but they too stopped. Just last week I went to take a pill and noticed I had none left in the draw, the box was atop the draw, my signal to self I need to visit the pharmacy – I failed!

I decided to go in search of an app that might help keep track of my meds and the number of pills remaining, and more importantly prompt me to restock when I am running low. Hitting the iOS App Store I eventually found Round Health (https://appsto.re/au/upbk_.i).

Round Health allows entry of your meds and when you take them, but unlike most apps I've seen before its reminders work on a range e.g. 5-7am, so you will actually be reminded twice if you don't indicate you've taken the meds. To assist with restocking you enter the number of pills you have remaining, when at 5 you will be reminded to visit the pharmacy. If like me you have an Apple Watch it includes an app which is convenient.

Check it out.
