Product name: Dosecast 

Manufacturer / Distributor: Montuno Software

Compilation: July 2016

This page contains our Montuno Software Dosecast review.

 

 

Analyst Summary: Montuno Software Dosecast

The first thing it does is ask to access your contacts; we found that a little off-putting.

Offers a drug database, but for $3/month which includes all “pro” version features.

Some drug searches gave confusing results, even one that was misspelled.

The documentation says it has a limit for the number of reminders on the iPhone.

This Medication App was one of the runners up for the Useful Apps Club selection in July 2016. Read our comparative analysis of medication apps for more details about our evaluations.

Dose Cast: iOS Smartphone App from Montuno Software

Rating from Apple App Store: 4 Stars

 

First glance: Free edition tested, but (too) many features require upgrade to Pro Level.

Good: Clearly organized set-up page for each new medication. Reliable reminders for set dose times.

Bad: No autofill assist for complicated med names. The data entry process requires use of spin dials for numeric data – possibly confusing to those not used to spin dial entry.

User Experience: It is easy to add medications to the list. But the dial tool used for every numeric entry is annoying, and does not improve with experience.

Setting the Dosing Schedule: The schedule not hard to set up, but the user can encounter the ‘upgrade’ prompt in the process.

Additional feature: Dose history is available in the Pro level (cloud based).

Basic Functionality crashes: None noted.
