Given that it's free, women in need of tracking their birth control medication may as well skip ahead and get downloading myPill™ - Birth Control Reminder immediately.

As the name suggests, myPill™ - Birth Control Reminder is an easy to use app that reminds women of when to take their next birth control pill. That's useful enough in itself but the app goes one step further. Easily set up, myPill™ - Birth Control Reminder can help women plan their schedule up to six months in advance at the swipe of a finger. This means that the user can track exactly when to expect their periods so they can plan their life and any big plans accordingly.

A built in notes facility ensures that users with any concerns can track any unusual changes in their cycle, ready to inform their doctor or gynecologist at a later appointment. Other events such as missed pills can also be easily tracked.

Even SMS and e-mail reminders can be configured for those who don't just want to be reminded by their iOS device.

myPill™ - Birth Control Reminder is an Universal app and available now.

Store Medical Information Easily - and Save Lives - With MedAssist

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Keeping track of health data and checkup information for all the family can be pretty tedious. After all, who wants to focus on their ailments all the time? Potentially knowing that knowledge or, more importantly, having that information on hand at all times, could save the life of a much loved family member. As an example, I'm allergic to paracetomol so what happens if I fall unconcious and wind up in hospital in need of painkillers urgently? An app like medAssist will ensure that such allergy information is readily available for any medical professional.

The app offers a place to store simple information such as date of birth as well as more complex and involved knowledge such as allergies, family disease history, blood group, even when the user had surgery or an X-Ray last. Chronic ailments such as joint problems or disease can be stored along with contact details for the family doctor making it easy to check in.

medAssist is one of few apps that could genuinely save lives. At $3.99 that's a small price to pay.
