New features in iPill 2.2

iPill version 2.2 is waiting for review from Apple.

Besides the fixing of few bugs, we’ve introduced these new features:

  • selecting a user now directly brings back to the home screen;
  • with a 2 seconds touch on the user image in the home screen, it’s possible to directly choose the user;
  • with a double touch on the same user image it’s now possible to see the schedule for all the users.

As always, for any problem with iPill, you can contact us directly from within the app, or on this website using the Contact page or the chat button on the lower right of the home page.

iPill v. 2 is out

iPRetina80iPill v. 2 is finally available for download in the App Store.

This version has been completely rewritten and it’s now a FREE App!
With an In-App-Purchase you can now buy the Pro version with the following added features:

  • Data backup/restore: with iPill 2 Pro you can now backup all your data in our cloud and restore it on other devices to keep them synchronized;
  • Notification sounds: it’s now possible to choose the notification sound for your iPill reminders;
  • Voice prompt: iPill will read your next medicine;
  • Multi-User: you can now add other users to iPill and manage all of them from a single App.

 

 

Sending crash logs to Apple

When an App crashes on your device a detailed log is saved.
If you’ve set the device to send the logs to Apple, then everyday all the logs received will be transmitted to their respective developers.

When an App receives an important number of crash logs, then the logs will be visible and downloadable by the developer.
If you’ve chosen not to send the logs, then there is no way for the developer to detect and eliminate the bugs, unless you’ll contact with him directly via email.

 

iPill is receiving some negative reviews by some users because it apparently crashes on their devices, but I can’t see any crash log yet and that means either the number of crashes is too small compared to the number of installed copies, or nobody sends its crash logs to Apple.
So, if your copy of iPill crashes, please contact me via email and I’ll try to solve the problem.

Thank you.

mySOS, a revolutionary App for your security

Has been approved today mySOS, a revolutionary personal security App.

Each time you feel yourself in danger the only thing you need to do is activate mySOS. It will automatically* send an SMS and/or an email and a push notification to the chosen people. If the receiver owns a copy of mySOS, he/she can monitor the position of the user that activated the alarm, in real time.
The “security protocol” we’ve set up requires that each user chooses a keyword, that will be sent to the receivers during the alarm.
When the receivers (friends, family, etc.) call the user after getting an alarm, the user should tell them the keyword so they know it’s all right.
Imagine the case when the user who activated the alarm is forced to answer the call and say that’s all right. Then the receivers will know that the user is in a situation because he/she didn’t say his/her keyword.

mySOS works in background, so once the alarm has been activated, you can exit the app and put your phone to “sleep”, and it will continue sending your position to your receivers.

If you often travel abroad, mySOS offers an “Emergency” tab where you’ll find three buttons to call the Police, Ambulance and Fire Dpt. without having to look for those numbers, mySOS will set them for you, based on your GPS position.
Three other buttons are completely customizable and, in the same screen, you’ll get your exact address.

mySOS is the first App of its kind to operate in the background and that doesn’t require the payment of any subscription: pay once and use it forever.

mySOS it’s one App we hope you’ll never have to use, but we think it’s better having it ready and not to use it, than to need it and not to have it.

mySOS is available in the App Store for $2.99

 

* Apple doesn’t allow sending SMS or emails without the user consent. For this reason, if you choose to send SMS and/or emails when the alarm is activated, you’ll have to press the “Send” button for each SMS or email you’re sending.
By the way, as soon as the alarm button is pressed, the push notification will be sent and the GPS will start updating its position.
mySOS requires an Internet connection to work properly and at least one other person (the receiver) with an installed copy of the App.

myPets is available on the App Store

My second App, myPets, is now on sale on the App Store.

With myPets the user will always have his pets’ data with himself and, more important, all the medical history. With few taps it is possible to check what was the last vaccination date, the reason of each visit, who visited them and, if a future visit is planned, myPets gives the user the possibility to add the event to his device’s calendar.

For those who have, unfortunately, lost their pet, there’s a board where they can add all the information needed to recognize the lost pet and the user’s contact data.

All registered users will get a push notification when a new post has been  published in his city’s board and will be able to contact the owner.

The users who want to give away their puppies or get a new one, can use the included market, where they can post their ads complete with up to 4 photos. Also in this case, all the users from the same city will get a push notification.

 myPets is available for $0.99 on the App Store.
