Helpful tips on using the iPhone EyeDropAlarm App

-  For most iPhones, the volume of the app's sound alerts is controlled by the ringer volume. The iPhone's ring/silent side button can be used to silence alert sounds and have the phone vibrate instead. If you are having trouble hearing the sound alerts, your iPhone's sound alerts are likely controlled by the music volume. You can change the music volume using the buttons on the side of your phone while playing a song or video. In the app's settings screen, you can choose between various alarm sounds. As you scroll through the different sound options, please be aware that the volume of the sample sounds is controlled by your phone's music volume. 

-  Use the iPhone notification center to see your alerts. Swipe down from the top of your screen to open the notification center. Then, click on the EyeDropAlarm notification alert. If you have an iPhone 6s or later, you can use "3D Touch" to respond to a notification. Press deeply on the notification alert to see the Ok and Snooze buttons.

-  To add an eyedrop to your schedule, click on the '+' button. 

-  Scroll down to find your drop or use the search box. Your phone needs to be connected to the internet to access the eyedrop database. If you don't have internet access or can't find your drop, click on the "+" button and manually enter the eyedrop information.  You will need an internet connection to change the bottle cap's color.

-  Select your drop and then make changes using your phone's touchscreen. The cap color and drop name can be edited using the touchscreen. Edit a specific alarm time by clicking on the ' > ' symbol.  Click the green 'Add' button when done.

-  Use the My Drops screen to edit or delete an eyedrop. Click on the ' > ' symbol for the specific drop.

-  Use the Schedule screen to see your upcoming drops. The boxes will be automatically checked off if you click "Ok" within the notification alert. If needed, you can check or uncheck a box using the touchscreen. 

- If you administer an eyedrop before the scheduled time, use the touchscreen to check off the box. Checking off the box will not cancel the scheduled alert. When the alert arrives, clear it from the notification center by swiping the alert to the left. If you are going to sleep and want to silence the scheduled future alert, use the app's settings screen to select "No Sound" or click on your iPhone's Settings icon and use the "Do Not Disturb" feature.  

-  The scheduled alarm times will stay on your original home time zone if you travel to a new time zone (8 pm in California will be 11 pm while in New York).  The alarm times will also do this during daylight savings.  If you want to adjust the alarm times, please use the MyDrops screen to edit a drops' alarm times (see above).  Another option is to delete the drop, and then add it back using the "+" button while you are in the new time zone.
