Pill Reminder is a quick and simple app to help you remember to take your medications or vitamins.

Make Pill Reminder as simple as you want or as advanced as you need!

• Many types of alerts (Text, Email, System sounds, Custom sounds/songs, Speak Text, Alert Window)
• Floating Pillbox window and/or menu bar widget (your choice!)
• Get alerts when you're running low on pills
• Track how many pills you take (including dosage) and how many you missed (print or export to CSV!)
• Flexibly set alert times for every kind of pill you take
• Optionally make groups to get a single alert when you take multiple pills at a time (ie. "Breakfast pills")
• Global hotkey support
• And much much more!

Enter the pills you have to take and times you have to take your pills and then simply let the unobtrusive menu widget (and/or a floating pillbox window if you choose) alert you when it is time to take a pill! It even logs when you've taken each pill in an easy to read printable log, to keep track up for yourself or for your doctor.

Leave your computer for a few minutes, the day or even on vacation and still get reminded to take your pills via Text or Email! (as long as your computer isn't off or asleep :) ). Completely redone interface to give you the simplest way to view all of the your information! New alerts and easy way to check off your pills!

Release Notes:

• Ready for OS X Yosemite

Review by OShiTim

Pill Minder 2 — Nice Idea, but FREQUENT LOCK-UPS - I have been using this app for about a week and find it very handy (when it works) in reminding me to take my meds at different schedules as many can't be taken at the same time. It allows many more options than I'd expected. It's a nice interface and easy to use once past the "learning curve". I'd buy it again if not for the major problem described below. This is not ready for "prime-time" and I await a major and much needed upgrade. The biggest problem is FREQUENT LOCKUPS with the "beach ball" spinning interminably. Of course reminders may not be issued when the app is locked up, and important meds could be missed. Sometimes the lockups only go on for several minutes. Other times the app has to be Force-Quit and restarted. Right now it's locked up with the "beach ball" showing when hovering over the icon or the sidebar. This time the lock-up is major as the app doesn't show up on the Dock, the Application Switcher (Cmd-Tab), or in the Force-Quit menu. In other words, the app can't be Quit. I'm going to have to Restart my Retina MacBook Pro running the latest Mountain Lion to clear this lock-up. (Is it also going to cancel my earlier reminders that I didn't get?) This is Dangerous and Unacceptable! This app needs to be fixed, and soon because taking not taking meds, or not taking them on schedule, can be life-threatening. This app needs to do what it says it will do.

Is anyone still out there? - Serious doubts about support and development. Under Sierra the app keeps abending. Currently running latest version (2.7), but it is over 2 years old.

Version 2.7
Review by Dude de Jour

Well worth the price - This App does a wonderful job reminding you to take your pills and you must actively acknowledge that you have taken them. It has a variety of customizeable actions it can do to make sure you don’t miss a signle does. It can track the inventory of your medications and tell you when you are running low so you know when to reorder. I get medication via mail-order and it has always been as issue of me noticing when to reorder a medication. Those days are gone. I trust this software to give me enough notice so I never go a day without medication. The program will track your inventory and you can set how many days or if you even want notification when you are running low. The developer(s) of this application have really thought through everything you could possible need to do with you medication and it keeps a log of when you take your medication so you can easy check if you missed a does (I have mine set to remind me every ten minutes, three times). Really well thought out and execute. I say five stars becase I can set six. Oh, I am running macOS Sierra 10.12.1 and have had no abends at all.
