Medication reminder based on game theory

Mango Health is using game mechanics to get people to be more conscientious about taking their meds. The firm has released an app that does just that. Users simply enter their medications or supplements, timing, and doses. The app reminds people when to take their medicine, and warns of possibly dangerous interactions. It also includes a personal health journal. What sets it apart, however, are its game design principles.

The app has an in-game currency users can earn by taking medications on time, and a leveling up system. By leveling and saving up, users can unlock real-world rewards with Mango's partners, including donations to charities and rewards at retail stores.
