Rethinking Pill Prompter

The new Pill Prompter

A sneak peek at what’s to come

When Andrew and I first imagined Pill Prompter in 2010, it started as a weekend project that served a single purpose – remind someone to take their pill. We built it out mainly to learn about how to make an app and honestly had no idea it would resonate with so many people. Some of you have been using that original app for years and we can’t thank you enough for supporting us all this time.

As we’ve grown in our respective skills, we’ve come to understand more and more about proper app design and listening to user feedback. One of the biggest requests we’ve had over the years is “let me add more than one pill.” So our next version of Pill Prompter will do that and more. We’re going to enable multiple pills, naming, scheduling, history, and of course we’ll continue to have snoozing.

We’d love to hear your feedback and we’re actively looking for people who’d be interested in talking to us about how they’d like to use Pill Prompter and those who’d want to test a beta of the app early. If that’s you, please send us your email below. We’ll only use it for Beta announcements.

Tipt and iOS 8 – Good news, bad news.

Oct 16, 2014
Bad News – There is currently a conflict with iOS 8 and Tipt. We are working on a fix and it should be released shortly, but if you use Tipt regularly we advise you not to upgrade at this time.

Good News – The version that we release will be redesigned from the ground up to make entering tips easier, charting your income more clear, and lays the foundation for future feature enhancements. Of course, all existing users will get this update for free. Thank you guys for your patience! Here’s a little preview


Pill Prompter Bug

We’ve been fighting a bug in Pill Prompter for the past few weeks that causes the app to continually crash when opened. Please bear with us while we try to locate the cause of this behavior.

If you have this issue, the only solution right now is to uninstall and reinstall the app. To uninstall, simply tap and hold the icon until all of your apps begin to jiggle. Then tap the “X” and confirm that you want to remove the app. Then find the app in the app store and redownload it. You Will NOT be charged twice.

We apologize for the inconvenience and again ask for your patience as we track down what’s causing this.
