I have 5-6 pills that I have to take during the day. I am amazed how bad iOS apps for pills are! For example, there is no app that:

reminds me to take pill sometime before and after a meal!

I do not want only to set the time to eg 7am and then to 8am, hoping I will eat at 7:30am. If I eat at 8:30am, I still want to use the app, and to remind me that e.g. 30min from taking the pill has passed and that I can eat now.

I tried 30+ apps, and they all are just simple schedulers, that I could make in google calendar by myself.

Any suggestions?


Lets say I have 2 pills: 1 is taken 30 min before meal and second is taken 30 min after the meal.

The app would send first notification at e.g. 7am. Lets say I have to postpone until 8am, so I take the first pill at 8am. The app timer starts, and it will notify me at 8:30am to eat and then at e.g. 9:15am to take the second pill (assuming i eat for 15 min).

Apps found so far that considers meal somehow

    How do you expect the app to know when you finally decide to eat? – Solar Mike Aug 1 '17 at 8:37
  • @SolarMike from the time I take the first pill. It's ok to have notifications for the first pill before, but timer starts from the moment when I take the first pill – ɹoƃı Aug 1 '17 at 8:39
  • @SolarMike see update for example – ɹoƃı Aug 1 '17 at 8:41
  • So, you need to enter your start time then enter subsequent times... an automator script may work if it triggers from your first pill entry time. – Solar Mike Aug 1 '17 at 8:43

    Does Siri work if there is no network? – Solar Mike Aug 1 '17 at 8:47
