Enter TiPb's new weekly feature where staff and readers alike sort through the App Store and help you find just the right App for That. This week, Colin asks:

I have need of an app that will alert me to take my medication. More specifically, I need to an app that will remind me of a medication that I need to take every 72 hours.

Sure, the built in alarm in the iPhone's clock app will work for many medication reminders, but it does not have an option to set a repeating alarm for every 3 days. To see our solution for Colin, follow along after the break!

App for That: How do you set up a reminder to make a phone call?

There are hundreds of thousands of iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad apps for just about everything -- so how come the one you need, the one you know just has to be there, is so hard to find? Enter TiPb's new weekly feature where staff and readers alike sort through the App Store and help you find just the right App for That. This week, Andrew asks:

I know there has to be an app that lets me set a reminder to call someone, then pops up an alert with a phone number so I can tap to dial it at the right time, but I just can't find it. HALP!

You can always use the notes field of the built in Calendar app, but this requires you to first open the contact's information, copy the phone number, then paste it into the notes of a new Calendar event, and that's just way too cumbersome for our taste. There are also many to-do apps that include this functionality, but in this case, less is more. For a better solution, follow along after the break!
