Its Done! iPhone App Helps Brain Injury Survivors Deal with Memory Problems(August 17, 2011)
Houston, TX (PRWEB) August 17, 2011
A new iPhone App called Its Done! is helping brain injury survivors remember whether they turned off the stove, locked the door, or took their medication. For those dealing with short term memory problems, the app instantly confirms the completion of everyday routine tasks. The app can even notify loved ones and caregivers that a task has been done. For brain injury survivors who use an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, the Its Done! app is helping improve their quality of life.
Available at the iTunes AppStore for $2.99, Its Done! has received strong reviews from users with memory problems. 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 its a reality. Another wrote: Very cool. It is great for daily use, especially remembering those small details.
With the Its Done! app, users simply check-mark as Done their routine everyday tasks (lock the door, turn off the stove, etc.). Later, when the uneasy thought occurs, Did I remember to?, Its Done! confirms whether the task is done. No need to re-check, second-guess, or worry.
One potentially life-saving feature of the Its 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 Its Done!, a loved one or caregiver can immediately receive a text message or email confirmation. Welcome assurance to others that eliminates their need to call or worry.
While most calendar/task apps remind users to do things, Its Done! is designed to help users recall with certainty whether a task is actually done. For brain injury survivors with memory impairment, it relieves the feeling of uncertainty by helping them remember later what they do now.
Its Done! has an intuitive interface that actually aids the memory process. When a task check-box is tapped, a bright green check-mark appears with a clicksound and phone vibration. These visual, audible, and tactile cues reinforce confirmation of each completed task. A timestamp is automatically added to confirm when a task is done and completed tasks are stored in the apps history.
And if a user really forgets to turn off the stove? Its Done! remembers that, too. The empty check-box next to the task confirms it and lets necessary action be taken to avert potential disaster.
As an additional memory aid, Its Done! has a task reminder alert thats helpful for prescribed medication times, pet feedings, important phone calls, and other time-specific tasks. The task reminder automatically opens the app to allow users to check-mark the task done.
Its Done! app creator, Howard "A.J." Lester, points to the vital public service the app provides: Everyone forgets whether or not they did something every now and then, Lester said, and, for those people, Its Done! is a fun and handy app for confirming stuff is done. But, for folks who are memory-impaired due to brain injury or other medical conditions, this simple, yet vital app can certainly improve their quality of life.
And for their loved ones and caregivers? Lester says, We believe Its Done! can create real peace of mind for the caregivers and loved ones of those who suffer from short-term memory loss. It's just one more tool for helping everyone rest easy.
