The proper management of medication is an important issue and if we do not follow the correct medical guideline can lead to serious health problems. If we take into account aspects such as that people with chronic diseases and elderly people with multiple pathologies may require taking a large number of medications, which is frequent changes in treatment or memory losses make the management of medication a complex task. After testing the application for more than a month it can be said that Calendula can be a very useful tool to help us in this task.

The main feature of the application are the reminders to notify us of taking medication. Precisely, it is now time to add a reminder that it is somewhat confusing and it may take a bit to become familiar with the terms of shots, patterns, routines and how they interrelate. Once this point is saved, the warnings are clear and allow a very wide personalization.

When you open the application, the main screen shows us very clearly the medicines and the time of the next medicines. As a recommendation for improvement, it would be very useful if the application had a widget that allows you to see this information at a glance without having to enter the application.

A very positive aspect is that the application allows to manage the medication of several patients at the same time in a very simple way, each one with its own medicos, guidelines and reminders. Each patient is differentiated by name and you can choose between pre-established images. This possibility is very practical for caregivers and family members who can manage their own medication and / or the medication of the people they care for. A small improvement in this aspect is that you could choose the photo of the patient's profile instead of having to choose between the images already established.

                 List of users

To use Calendula, it is not necessary to register beforehand, and all the information is stored in the phone itself, so no personal data is sent.

In terms of accessibility, we recommend increasing the contrast of the text with respect to the wallpaper on some screens and improving navigation for screen readers.
