New Pill Identifier App for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch

We are proud to announce the new Drugs.com Pill Identifier application for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.

The new iPhone Application adds an exciting new dimension by improving convenience and adding offline capabilities. The app features “search as you type” functionality with options for searching by imprint, drug name, shape, color and score. Access a wealth of information, including; Drug Images, Description/Indication, Pregnancy Category, CSA Schedule, NDC Codes, Strength, Coating, Clarity, Repackagers and Rx/OTC availability.

Pill Identification is a hugely popular and ever growing category in the healthcare space. Drugs.com has long set the benchmark for identifying pills online with it’s database of more than 16,000 images licensed from a multitude of respected sources and kept up to date by a team of dedicated, specialist researchers.

“The app will be especially useful for law enforcement agencies and emergency workers requiring quick access to Pill Identification tool without being reliant on an Internet connection.” said Philip Thornton, CEO of Drugs.com.

The entire pill database has been licensed and optimized for use in this application. All data is stored on the mobile device and is updated each month with new generic and branded medications – ensuring it is kept as up-to-date as possible. The application can also connect to the Drugs.com website for additional or supplementary information (where available).

We are also planning to release at least two more standalone applications for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch in Q4 2010. These include new Drug Reference Apps for both Consumers and Healthcare Professionals.

  • I have the HTC EVO 4G and I really like to know when your focus will be off the iPhone and start releasing this helpful app to people who are on the Android operating system. I can’t understand why your main focus is on the iPhone when Android is becoming substantially more common. I hope you keep this in mind and create the app for us people on the Android system and soon. I know a lot of people who have been waiting.

  • Thank you Dawn, hopefully more companies will see that the JesusPhone is becoming obsolete with the introduction of Android.

  • Hi, Actually I found this comment while searching for information on any android apps–I have the Samsung Galaxy tablet and would love to be able to access my medication information during a doctor visit etc.

    While I’m here–Recently I had to take my Mom to the ER–I mentioned I had all her meds online. The NP quickly got me computer access and they were ecstatic to have such complete and accurate information available–so I thank you and my Momma thanks you!

  • You all should make an app for the Android Market. It is on many more handsets than the iOS.

  • Wow, technology!
