Actually, I hadn't even heard of it! But now you got me interested!
I've owned all the N-series tablets since the 800 - my 900 arrived the
other week and although it does have some rough edges I'm really pretty
happy with it (certainly, it feels a lot less "beta" than the
"professional", proprietary tool that I previously used for managing RAW
files from my cameras!).

Sorry if I wasn't clear - I'm not looking to create a pharmacy app (in
fact, there seemed already to be some medical records / stores type apps
floating around although they are not my interest here so did not look
to see if they are any good).
This is purely for individuals to track their own medication.
E.g. "I need to take the blue inhaler as I need it, the green and brown
ones twice a day, the yellow pills in the morning, the pink ones at
night and two of the brown ones with lunch.. now, what have I
The idea'd be that you enter the drugs you're taking and the schedule
you take them on (ideally with a database that knows common pack/blister
strip sizes and regimes) and the app issues reminders, asks for
acknowledgment that you've taken the dose etc.
I can see lots of potential for additional functionality - pretty graphs
spring instantly to mind but also reminding when you need to order new
supplies, checking off packs at the end of the day/week/month to make
sure nothing got skipped etc.

That would be great! It's been a while since I've done anything
involving a GUI but I've started having a play with the Maemo 5 SDK at
