[prMac.com] Tel-Aviv, Israel - Announcing that Hashsoft has just released version 1.2 of their birth control pill reminder application for iPhone and iPod touch. myPill 1.2 now introduces selection between three different themes, snooze reminders, customization of app badge alert and two new daily events - bleeding and spotting.
We've been waiting a long time for this release, developed for more than two months; it offers a vast amount of new features, changes and bug fixes. Starting with a refreshing new application icon, there has been fundamental changes in the way daily reminders work.
When the pill reminder pops, it is now possible to choose "Snooze" and have another alert later, according to the snooze dwell configured. Telling the app when the pill was actually taken allows it to automatically mark pills that were missed. Another big feature is selection of different pack themes. Added in this version are two new types of packs - a pink theme with 21 active and 7 inactive pills, as well as a green theme with 24 active and 4 inactive pills.
A frequently requested feature by customers is the ability to choose when to show application badge warning - if at all. The possible configurations are 'always' - to always have the number of pills left in the pack shown on the application icon, 'never' - the badge will never be shown, or configure the badge alert to show several days before period starts.
The last big change in version 1.2 is two new events per day - bleeding and spotting. When touching a pill, in addition to marking a pill as missed, the user may mark she had spotting or bleeding on that day. This will cause the pill to be marked with a maroon border and also to be written into the history log.
myPill Lite 1.2 also received a major upgrade, it will be released in the next few days and will have features previously reserved for the full version, to be available also in the lite version. The wait for 'continue' button at the splash screen was removed, and it now goes directly to the pack view tab. Reminder alert is now enabled for the lite version, allowing the user to schedule reminder alerts on a specified time. Also, user may now use the history tab to save custom notes - a feature that was previously disabled at the lite version.
