[prMac.com] Rancho Santa Margarita, California - Danike today announces that the number of iOS purchases of their PocketPharmacist Medical app have surpassed 75,000 units since its initial release. PocketPharmacist provides crystal clear drug information and an easy to use medication organizer. It has received over 750 iTunes user reviews, averaging 4.5 out of 5 stars. As of this month, PocketPharmacist is now available for iOS and both mobile and tablet devices running Android version 2.x, or greater, on Google Play for $0.99 USD.
"PocketPharmacist has been more successful than I ever could have imagined," says Michael Guren, founder of Danike, Inc. "What started out as just an idea has blossomed into an invaluable healthcare tool for thousands of users. Now Android users will finally be able to benefit from PocketPharmacist's drug safety features that previously were only available on iOS."
Specifically designed to be easy to use, authoritative, and clear, PocketPharmacist features over 1,300 of the most commonly prescribed drugs in the United States. PocketPharmacist eliminates infrequently used information, and serves as a reference tool that provides a common language that can be used by and between patients, caregivers, support services, medical students, and healthcare professionals.
PocketPharmacist also offers three built-in features including Med Check, Pillbox, and Resources.
Med Check automatically checks for interactions, precautions, and side effects. Any overlapping side effects, where two or more medications may have the same adverse drug reaction, are highlighted, helping to provide what could be life-saving alerts to the user.
Pillbox easily organizes medications, allergies, and medical providers for multiple people whilst tracking and recording the drugs as they are taken. All Pillbox information can be easily shared in a clearly formatted email to a doctor, pharmacist, caregiver, health worker, or healthcare facility.
PocketPharmacist also includes online resources including pill identifier, medical dictionary, FDA updates, current health news, and health topics via MedlinePlus.
