NeedyMeds offers apps to seniors

A national nonprofit group is offering two smartphone apps that allow consumers to research costs of prescription drugs.

The NeedyMeds Drug Discount Card App helps users save on over-the-counter medicines, medical supplies and pet prescription drugs purchased at a pharmacy. Users show the pharmacists the app, and a pharmacy finder that allows them to find 70,000 pharmacies that accept the card.

The NeedyMeds Alert app has users enter all of their medicines, doses, and times they should be taken. A pop-up reminder appears when it's time to take a particular medication.

Both the Drug Discount App and NeedyMeds Alert are available for the iPhone and Android-running smartphones. Neither requires registration or personal information.
