Starting With Routines

Begin by launching the Nudge app. From the homepage, you’ll see a list of your activated Nudge devices.

If you’re yet to configure any routines, tap on ‘+ Configure Routines.’ For those with existing routines aiming to make adjustments, select the three dots menu on your device and choose 'Edit Routines.'

Example Routine Setup

For demonstration purposes, let's create a twice-daily routine: one for 7 AM and another for 7 PM. So press "Add Routine" twice to add two entries. Tap on the time next to each routine slot will let you edit when Nudge will alert you. Change first routine to 7AM and second routine to 7PM. But really, enter the times that work best for your schedule.

Enter and Edit Routine Times

Note: The time selector show is for iOS. On Android you will see a different time picker

After setting the times, ensure you hit 'Save' to apply your changes. Your Nudge device will now engage its alert system, utilizing both lights and sounds, to remind you of these set times daily.


Setting up routines in the Nudge app is a straightforward process designed to enhance your medication adherence. By following the steps outlined above, you can ensure that your medication, vitamins, or supplements are taken on time, every time.
