iPhone App Helps Brain Injury Survivors
Houston, Texas – A unique iPhone app called It’s Done! is helping brain injury survivors recall whether they remembered to turn off the stove, lock the door, or take their medication. The app can even notify loved ones and caregivers that a routine task has been done. For brain injury survivors with short-term memory loss, It’s Done! has become an important tool for improving their quality of life.
Available at the iTunes AppStore, It’s Done! has received strong support from brain injury survivors worldwide. One user wrote: “It’s Done! is more than just a helpful tool, it helps strengthen your memory while making sure everything gets done.” Another wrote: “It is great for daily use, especially remembering those small details.”
With the It’s Done! app, the user simply check-marks “Done” on 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 or second-guess.
One potentially life-saving feature of the It’s Done! app is its ability to automatically generate a text message or email to send others when a task is done. So within seconds of taking a daily medication, a loved one or caregiver immediately receives the message “It’s Done!”, confirming the medication was taken. This simple feature gives assurance to others, eliminating their need to call or worry.
While most calendar/task apps remind users to do things, It’s Done! is intended to help users recall with certainty whether a task is actually done. It relieves the feeling of uncertainty that usually accompanies short-term memory loss.
It’s Done! was designed for easy use by brain injury survivors. For example, when going out, the user locks the door and taps a check-mark next to the “Lock Door” task in It’s Done! A bright green check-mark appears with a “click” sound and phone vibration. These visual, audible, and tactile cues are additional memory aids that reinforce confirmation of each completed task. Later, when that uneasy feeling occurs, “Did I lock the door?”, a simple glance at the app reveals the check-mark and time-stamp next to “Lock Door” task and confirms: It’s Done! There’s no need to go back to see if the door is locked. In this way, the It’s Done! app is both a time-saver and a memory aid.
And if you really forget to turn off the stove? The It’s Done! app remembers that, too. The empty check-box next to the task prompts the necessary action to save the day from potential disaster.
For quick set-up, It’s Done! comes pre-loaded with 40 routine everyday tasks. Custom task names can be created and tasks can also be prioritized and categorized for easy sorting and viewing.
It’s Done! also has a Task Reminder feature that’s helpful for remembering medications, pet feedings, phone calls, and other time-specific tasks.
It’s Done! creator, Howard “A.J.” Lester, explains the importance of the app: “Everyone forgets whether they did something every now and then,” Lester says, “and, for those people, It’s Done! is a handy app for confirming stuff is done. But, for brain injury survivors with short-term memory loss, this vital app can help improve their quality of life.” And for 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 memory-impairment. It’s just one more tool for helping everyone rest easy.”
