Even though the TakePill mobile app still stays relevant, its functionality and design are far from being up-to-date. The Equal’s team decided to accept the challenge and to develop a new modern version to:

In doing so, the designers killed two birds with one stone: they ensured that users would not confuse the prescribed preparations and spiced up the process by transforming it in a sort of mini-game.
The user experience also leveled up thanks to new features, such as:
The UI part had changed drastically due to the complete transformation of:
