If you have to take medication regularly or have lots of doctors appointments coming up, you may sometimes get things mixed up which can have serious consequences. If you ever asked yourself if you have taken the medication of the day already, or if you still need to take it, you may find an application like RX Medicine Reminder helpful as it helps you keep track of all things medical.

You can use the Android application to keep track of medication that you need to take as it will remind you whenever it is time to take it. That in itself may be helpful to some as it removes the need to keep track of it on your own or in another way.  The application on the other hand does more than that, as you can also use it to keep track of doctor appointments so that you do not miss them. Add to that a handy database of information that you can make use of and tracking medical supplies, and you got a winner here.More about that later, lets take a look at the app in detail.

First thing that you may want to do is add at least one patient to the app. Here you can add the patient's name, birth day, blood type and notes. Since you are not limited to one patient, you can for instance add your family as patients to be in full control over all doctor appointments and medication. Or, if you are working in health care, for instance as a nurse, you may want to add all your patients to it and their medication so that you never forget to hand out the medicine.

Once you have added patients it is time to add medication. This is a one time process as well which can be useful in the long run. Here you add the name, type, available quantity and minimum quantity you feel comfortable with so that you always know when it is time for getting a refill.

You can now start adding medication reminders by linking patients with medication and day, time and dosage. You can for instance configure the program to notify you at a specific time of the day that it is time to take a pill. The program supports varying dosages for medicine so that you are free to configure it as you see fit in the program.

Now that we have covered the medication side of things, it is time to look at the doctor's side of things. You can add doctors to the application so that you have a list of doctors available. You can add names and contact information, specialties and notes for each doctor you add to the app. This in itself is useful as you can quickly look up the information when needed. The application lets you create doctor's appointments which works in a similar fashion as medication alerts. The app will remind you of upcoming appointments so that you do not have to keep track of things manually anymore.

You can - and should - password protect the application to prevent access from third parties. You can furthermore export reminders to a pdf file which you can then print out and use as a "to-do" list.

    Uhh, this has already been possible – I am not sure how but remember my brother telling me about it. I’m not a whatsapp user so not sure of the specifics, but something about sending the image as a file and somehow bypassing the default compression settings that are applied to inbound photos.

    He has also used this to share movies to whatsapp groups, and files 1Gb+.

    Like I said, I never used whatsapp, but I know 100% this isn’t a “brand new feature”, my brother literally showed me him doing it, like… 5 months ago?

    Martin, what happened to those: 12 Comments ( Is there a specific justifiable reason why they were deleted?

    Hmm, it looks like the gHacks website database is faulty, and not populating threads with their relevant cosponsoring posts.

    The page on ghacks this is on represents the best of why it has become so worthless, fill of click-bait junk that it’s about to be deleted from my ‘daily reads’.

    It’s really like “Press Release as re-written by some d*ck for clicks…poorly.” And the subjects are laughable. Can’t wait for “How to search for files on Windows”.

      > The page on ghacks this is on represents the best of why it has become so worthless, fill of click-bait junk…

      Sadly, I have to agree.

      Only Martin and Ashwin are worth subscribing to.
      Especially Emre Çitak and Shaun are the worst ones.

      If intended “Clickbait”, it would mark the end of Ghacks Technology News.
      Ghacks doesn’t need crappy clickbaits. Clearly separate articles from newer authors (perhaps AIs and external sales person or external advertising man) as just “Advertisements”!

      We, the subscribers of Ghacks, urge Martin to make a decision.

    “Threads” is like the Walmart of Social Media.

    How hard can it be to clone a twitter version of that as well? They’re slow.

  7. Paul(us) said on August 21, 2023 at 5:16 pm

    Yes, why not mention how large the HD files can be?
    Why, not mention what version of WhatsApp is needed?
    These omissions make the article feel so bare. If not complete.

      Sorry posted on the wrong page.

    I already do this by attaching them via the ‘Document’ option.

    I don’t know what’s going on here at Ghacks but it’s obvious that something is broken, comments are being mixed whatever the article, I am unable to find some of my later posts neither. :S

    Quoting the article,
    “As users gain popularity, the value of their tokens may increase, allowing investors to reap rewards.”

    Besides, beyond the thrill and privacy risks or not, the point is to know how you gain popularity, be it on social sites as everywhere in life. Is it by being authentic, by remaining faithful to ourselves or is it to have this particular skill which is to understand what a majority likes, just like politicians, those who’d deny to the maximum extent compatible with their ideological partnership, in order to grab as many of the voters they can?

    I see the very concept of this as unhealthy, propagating what is already an increasing flaw : the quest for fame. I won’t be the only one to count himself out, definitely.

      @John G. is right : my comment was posted on [] and it appears there but as well here at []

      This has been lasting for several days. Fix it or at least provide some explanations if you don’t mind.

    > Google Chrome is following in Safari’s footsteps by introducing a new feature that allows users to move the Chrome address bar to the bottom of the screen, enhancing user accessibility and interaction.

    Firefox did this long before Safari.

    Basically they’ll do anything except fair royalties.
