Further troubleshooting

What if I cannot update the app before 26 June?

If you are unable to update the MedicineWise app on time, we advise you to email your list of medicines and activity log to yourself. You should do this before Wednesday 26 June, so you still have access to your information until you get a chance to update your app.

Instructions on how to do this are available here.

I can’t login or reset my password.

A short outage on 25 June meant some users weren’t able to login to the app or reset their password. This is now resolved, so please try again.

I can find the app in the Store, but it isn’t prompting me to update it.

Try searching in the App store or Google Play for ‘MedicineWise 3.2.3’.

If the store only gives you the ‘Open’ option, check the version history to see if it states ‘Last update 24 June 2019’. If so, you are already using the latest version of the app.
