LowRx - Discount Prescription Card - App Review

Here's an App that not only uses Passbook but saves you money. This is the little brother of MedMory that was reviewed a little while back, so also enables you to save on prescriptions but without the reminders.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
The App is extremely straightforward. The home screen is split into four:
Information, which basically describes the three other options.
Membership Card, where you merely enter your name and telephone number, in order to create your account.
Pharmacy locator (fairly self-explanatory)... the easiest way to use this is to turn location services on for LowRx and let the App find all pharmacies near your current location.
Drug Estimator: enter the name of your prescription drug and the quantity; you are then presented with a target price for the selected drug, together with generic versions (if available), as well as alternatives within the therapeutic class. This has the additional use of your being able to discuss with your prescriber if a less expensive alternative could be substituted.
All you need do is present the 'Event Ticket' from passbook to the pharmacist to benefit from low-priced medication.

Cost
The App is Free.

Indispensability
If you are in the USA, it would seem churlish to refuse low-priced prescriptions. If you are outside the USA, the pharmacy locator works (although you will need a USA iTunes account to download the App).

Dependability
The App is straightforward and stable.

Security
The only interaction is if you allow location services.
