It's Done! iPhone App Helps Baby Boomers Survive Memory Lapse
October 4, 2011 in Lifestyle
[prMac.com] Houston, Texas - The recently-released iPhone App called It's Done! is helping baby boomers survive short-term memory lapse. It instantly confirms whether they remembered to turn off the stove, lock the door, or take their medication. For boomers who experience occasional memory lapse, the app helps them recall with certainty the completion of everyday routine tasks. The app can even notify loved ones and others that a task has been done. Baby boomers who use an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch have found the It's Done! app offers peace of mind and improves their quality of life.
Available at the iTunes AppStore, It's Done! has received strong reviews from users. One user wrote: "I cannot tell you how long I have been looking for an application just like this one. I have seen it in my mind many times and now it's a reality..." Another wrote: "Very cool. It is great for daily use, especially remembering those small details."
With the It's Done! app, users simply check-mark "Done" their routine everyday tasks (lock the door, turn off the stove, etc.). Later, when the uneasy thought occurs, "Did I remember to...?", It's Done! confirms whether the task is done. The need to re-check, second-guess, or worry is eliminated.
A potentially life-saving feature of the It's Done! app is its ability to automatically generate a text message or email to notify others when a task is done. So within seconds of taking a daily medication and check-marking It's Done!, a loved one or caregiver immediately receives a text or email confirming it. While helping the user recall the completed task, It's Done! also assures others, reducing their need to call or worry.
The It's Done! app is designed with an intuitive interface that aids the memory process. Tasks first appear with an empty check-box and message "Task Awaiting Completion". When a task is check-marked done, a bright green check-mark appears with a "click"sound and phone vibration. These visual, audible, and tactile cues reinforce confirmation of each completed task. A timestamp automatically confirms when a task is done. Tasks performed multiple times in a day can be checked, unchecked, and checked again, with a new time stamp each time the task is completed. The app tracks the number of times a task is done and all completed tasks are stored in the app's history for review at any time.
It's Done! also has a task reminder alert that pops up at the appointed time and automatically opens the app to complete the task. This memory aid is helpful for prescribed medication times, important phone calls, and other time-specific tasks.
The creator of the It's Done! app for the iPhone, Howard "A.J." Lester, points to the vital public service the app provides. "Everyone forgets whether they did something every now and then," Lester said, "and, for those people, It's Done! is a fun and handy app for confirming stuff is done. But, for baby boomers, short-term memory lapse can be a real problem. This simple app helps them solve that problem while creating peace of mind and improving their quality of life."
