Reviews

Reviewer: Blogger on POZ Blogs, USA
Review: “Provides not only a pill reminder, but also CD4 and viral-load charting. While not intuitive, there is a way to record missed doses, too. I like this app, because it’s made specifically for HIV, with a database of all the current drugs available, built in. Just pick your meds, set the time, and go. I recommend it to all my poz friends.”

Review: “Thanks to the last blogger for his comment re my app, ‘iStayHealthy’. I created the app with positive people in mind. When I got diagnosed, I found there are a lot of details to keep track of: results, supplementary meds, and, finally, my anti-HIV drugs. Having ‘iStayHealthy’ as a one-stop-tool has made my life easier. The last blogger made a good comment about recording missed doses. I have been thinking hard lately how to make this a bit more intuitive. I keep working on it, and I welcome any suggestions, as well.”

Review: “I like the way ‘iStayHealthy’ handles missed doses. For those who haven’t used it, ‘iStayHealthy’ uses an opt-in mechanism. You tell the app not when you successfully remember to take your meds, but rather when you do not. While this works for me, I can understand that it might not work for others who need to be constantly reminded of their meds, or those who just started (or switched) their regimen. Adherence is not a one-size-fits-all problem. Having multiple ways to record taken doses or missed doses, as well as a rewards mechanism can really help a person achieve adherence excellence.”
