A wise man once said “Most people don’t know how they’re gonna feel from one moment to the next. But a dope fiend has a pretty good idea. All you gotta do is look at the labels on the little bottles.” That’s why Walgreen’s wants to be mother’s – and your – little helper An app from pharmacy chain makes it dead simple to refill your prescription: You simply take a picture of your pill bottle and submit it. In a few hours, your pills will be ready to pick up at your local pharmacy, either through the front door or through a back transom.
