Pillboxie is an app that helps you remember to take your medications. Add your pills, describing their shape and colour, and then schedule reminders throughout the day and further by days of the week. The user interface for scheduling your pills is not just cute, it’s functional. Just drag your pills into ‘pill boxes’ representing the hour. You can drag more than one pill, drag out pills; it’s crazy nice. Local notifications remind you when you need to pop one.

A fun piece by Andy Ihnatko on the good and bad of Apple’s iterative approach to software features:
I recently read something about Walt Disney that seemed very familiar. A man who worked with him said (I’m paraphrasing) Walt wanted to make sure that if you came to Disney World, you would have a fantastic time. And he succeeded. But he also wanted to make sure that you wouldn’t even have the option of having a bad time.
