A unique smartphone/tablet App called It’s Done! is helping early‐
stage Alzheimer’s sufferers remember whether they turned off
the stove, locked the door, or took their medication. For those
dealing with dementia and short term memory loss, the app
instantly confirms the completion of everyday routine tasks. The
app can even notify loved ones and caregivers that a task has
been done. People with Alzheimer’s who use a smartphone or
tablet have found the It’s Done! app offers new hope for
improving their quality of life.
It’s Done! has received strong reviews from users coping with
memory loss. One user wrote: “I cannot tell you how long I have
been looking for an application just like this one. I have seen it in
my mind many times and now it’s a reality…” Another wrote:
“Very cool. It is great for daily use, especially remembering those
With the It’s Done! app, users simply check‐mark “Done” their
routine everyday tasks (lock the door, turn off the stove, etc.).
Later, when the uneasy thought occurs, “Did I remember to…?”,
It’s Done! confirms whether the task is done. The need to re‐
check, second‐guess, or worry is eliminated.
A potentially life‐saving feature of the It’s Done! app is its ability to automatically generate a text
message or email to notify others when a task is done. So within seconds of taking a daily medication
and check‐marking It’s Done!, a loved one or caregiver immediately receives a text or email confirming
it. While helping the user recall the completed task, It’s Done! also assures others, reducing their need
to call or worry.
The It’s Done! app is designed with an intuitive interface that aids the memory process. Tasks first
appear with an empty check‐box and message “Task Awaiting Completion”. When a task is check‐
marked done, a bright green check‐mark appears with a “click”sound and phone vibration. These visual,
audible, and tactile cues reinforce confirmation of each completed task. A timestamp automatically
confirms when a task is done. Tasks performed multiple times in a day can be checked, unchecked, and
checked again, with a new time stamp each time the task is completed. The app tracks the number of
times a task is done and all completed tasks are stored in the app’s history for review at any time.
It’s Done! also has a task reminder alert that notifies users at the appointed time, helpful for prescribed
medication times, important phone calls, and other time‐specific tasks.
It’s Done! is available for iPhone/iPad at the iTunes AppStore and for Android devices at Google Play. It’s
also available for Kindle devices at Amazon.

The creator of the It’s Done! app, Howard A.J. Lester, points to the vital public service the app provides.
“Everyone forgets whether they did something every now and then,” Lester said, “and, for those people,
It’s Done! is a fun and handy app for confirming stuff is done. But, for folks with memory loss due to
Alzheimer’s, brain injury, or other medical conditions, this simple, yet vital, app can certainly improve
their quality of life.”
And for their loved ones and care‐givers? Lester says, “We believe It’s Done! can create real peace of
mind for the caregivers and loved ones of those who suffer from short‐term memory loss…just one
more tool for helping everyone rest easy.”
