Clumsy, difficult, next to impossible to use. No documentation or help! It is not at all obvious how or even if you can set it to repeat a reminder every so often. It appears that if you have a med that you have to take every six hours that you have to make a new entry for every single time you need to take the med from now on. I can't even see how to make it repeat every day! It was not possible for me to figure out how to add a reminder even though I played around with it for about a half hour before giving up in disgust. It is garbage. I am very computer savy but think of the old folks who are the most likely candidates for using this. If I can't figure it out, they certainly can't. And to think that the developers believe that they could charge people $50 bucks for this! Try doing a usability study before you launch your lousy software!
