    "It's a great app, I can't say that enough. I've only ever misplaced my phone at home and around my office but I was able to find it with use of this app. What I like most about the app is that I can lock the phone with a password so that in the event that I lose it, no one can access it. It makes the phone useless to someone who may find it. I can also erase all content on the phone in the off chance I need to. Great app overall. "

    ""This is a great app - keeps you from carrying a pencil and newspaper around with you everywhere you go and gives you the advantage of hints if you want them. Love it."

    " Last year I was diagnosed with high blood pressure. I downloaded this app to help me monitor my progress as I started my new medication and diet. It was very handy to be able to see my blood pressure and know the life choices I had made were really showing results. It also gave me peace of mind knowing I was accomplishing my goals. Great app."

    "I downloaded Pollboxie on my mom's phone in the hopes that this will help her with remembering what meds to take daily. It's actually a really useful app. The reminders alone are worth it's weight and worth a try if you have a handful of meds to remember daily about taking. The way you can categorize and visually manage your meds is so good. This makes the app very user friendly as well as aesthetically pleasing to use. It doesn't have that sterile feel of a lot of other medical apps I've tried, as this one kind of seems like you're playing a game. It's worth a look for the scheduling reminders as I mentioned before."
