For those dealing with short term memory problems, It's Done! instantly confirms the completion of everyday routine tasks.
Houston, TX (PRWEB) August 17, 2011
A new iPhone App called It’s 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 It’s Done! app is helping improve their quality of life.
Available at the iTunes AppStore for $2.99, It’s 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 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 as “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. No need to re-check, second-guess, or worry.
One 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 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, It’s 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.
It’s 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 “click”sound 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 app’s history.
And if a user really forgets to turn off the stove? It’s 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, It’s Done! has a task reminder alert that’s 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.
It’s 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, It’s 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 It’s 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.”
