I understand this program sets off an alarm when meds are due, but is there actually a way to indicate to the program whether the meds have been taken, and if they've been taken at a different time to what was planned?

I have to take meds between 4 and 10 times a day, depending on my exact med combination at the time, and despite the best intentions they sometimes get messed up. I'd love to be able to tell the program that my 2pm med was taken at 3pm, for example.

Also, if multiple drugs are due at the same time will the program use a single alarm or multiple alarms for this? The demo only allows one medication to be input so I can't tell.

Also, I can't see there's any way to logs meds which are taken PRN (as needed). Is this a planned addition?

It does what it does fantastically, but I wish I could let it know to open certain URLs in certain browsers. I have a bunch of Fluid browsers - one for Twitter and one for Facebook for example - and I'd love all my twitter.com URLs to automatically go to the Twitter fluid instance, and so on.

The functions it has now are great, but the one I described would be compelling and I'd certainly buy it then!

I have a disability that means I can use a trackpad with one fingers but can seldom type at all. Without KeyStrokes I'd have the choice of Windows, or of not computing at all. And if I chose Windows, similar software with multiple word prediction, and the other *vital* features of KeyStrokes would cost me FAR more.

Like me, most other people needing this software will have an agency which can help with funding.

Thank God that there are people like David in the world.
