Summary

Tool that helps people remember, and manage and organise their lives. Re-usable ‘Qcard’ reminders can be created in the app by shaking the phone. Each colour-coded Qcard can be tagged with a necessary activity (such as taking medication), and a scheduled time. Alerts remind the user of listed activities that fall due. Completed Qcards are stamped and archived; deleted Qcards vanish. Step-by-step ‘Guided tasks’ conduct the user through prolonged tasks. Aimed in particular at people with ADHD, Alzheimer’s, amnesia, brain injury, or dementia.

Reviews

Reviewer: Ontario Brain Injury Association (OBIA), Canada
Review: “We highlighted the story of the person who developed the ‘Qcard’ app in the 2012 issue of ‘OBIA Review’ [http://bit.ly/OSX2Gf], which is our quarterly magazine. Designed by a survivor of acquired brain injury (ABI) for ABI survivors, ‘Qcard’ assists people who aren’t organised to become organised, and helps those who forget to remember. This life-management app is the ultimate in memory and organisation. Please note that the app does take some cognitive skills to use. It has just been released.”
