It’s been 10 days since I released the free version of my medication reminder app. And I must say it has been a blast.
The very next morning I received an email from Veronica. She just installed my app and loved it, but she was missing one thing. Some people take halve a pill as medication and Veronica is one of them.
[two_thirds]Oops! Never thought of that. I never do, so it never occurred to me. Since I was busy planning the new version it was perfect timing. Just fit this feature in with the rest of them.[/two_thirds]
Between then and now, the free version has been downloaded and installed quite a lot. It is now ranking #48 in the Android market’s medical/free section. Better then I expected, especially since there has been no significant marketing.
But on with the good stuff. The new version has three big improvements and minor tweaks in performance and user interface. The improvements are:
- Medication amounts and doses can now be fractions. So 1, 1.5 and 0.5 all work.
- When you miss the alert sound, it will repeat for max 30 minutes. The first reminder will be after 2 minutes, and then every 5 minutes for halve an hour.
- If you heard the alert sound, but want to delay a bit, you can now tap the snooze button. This will delay the alert for 10 minutes and then start over.
Both the free and the paid version are upgraded and will be pushed onto the market today, so please upgrade to this new version.
If you are missing something in this app, be like Veronica and tell me. Or if you just want to say hi, drop me a note.
I’ll be at the Power of One in London on 11/11/11, if you are there, walk up and say hi.
In your language?
If you are a non English/Dutch speaker and want a version in your native language, consider helping me write it. It’s not much work.
In the mean time
In the mean time I will be busy working on the next version, looking forward to my trip to London and countless other things.
