★ UPDATED and on SALE! ★ This is a "cult-like" app that will get you HOOKED!
Who doesn't need a reminder every now and then? Oh, you don't? You're one of those? The perfect type of person who can remember every single thing on your task list without even having a task list? If that's you, STOP READING THIS!
But if you're HUMAN like the rest of us, you probably forget things every now and then. Maybe because you're super busy. You probably don't even have time to brush your hair or shine your scalp. How can you possibly remember that you have a meeting at 4 am? Or that you have to eat your lunch at noon? YOU NEED A REMINDER FOR STUFF!
How could our Reminders! app be different from all the other apps out there that create pop up notifications and to-do lists? Our Reminders! app is fool-proof.
Those other apps just create a reminder. But I forget about reminders like that. My reminder says I have to email John Bob Smith. Then I have to close my pop up window. I have to go into my email app. Then I have to find John Bob's name in my contact list. Then I have to actually email him. This is wasted time! Why do I have to do this? Maybe I have ADHD. Maybe I'm like a bird who likes pecking at shiny things. Was I supposed to email someone? I guess it wasn't important anyway. Except maybe it IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING EVER! Maybe John Bob was the guy I had to contact to collect on my lotto winnings? Either way, now I'm screwed. This could have all been avoided if I just had a better REMINDERS app.
Here's how our REMINDERS! app kicks the behind of any other program. It actually executes the task when you tell it to. That email you had to send John Bob? All you had to do when you created that task was just enter in John Bob's email and our app does the rest. When that notification pops up to remind you to email John Bob, there's a simple button you can click on that will actually lead you to composing that email RIGHT AWAY.
REMINDERS doesn't rely on a push notification but instead builds itself in the iOS framework. Which means you get your reminder in real time, even if you're in an area without network service. And it's not just emailing or calling people that you need REMINDERS for. Grocery store? Gym? Pet a dog? Rob a bank? (We do not condone illegal activity, especially if you get caught). We have a huge list of different tasks you can enter or choose from. It's because WE CAN READ YOUR MIND!!

What's New in Version 2.2
Updates for iOS 5.
Reminders! that nag you, and that
Reminders has two legs up on the stock iOS reminders app: 1) The reminder keep on going off until you act on it, and 2) Reminders is built around completing specific actions at the time of the reminder; for example make a phone call, send a text, email Bob, or pick up the dry-cleaning. When a reminder pops up you just tap a button and you're right into making the phone call, sending an SMS (even compose the text beforehand), etc. This is great for those things that you *really* have to do, but where a less naggy reminder would be easily missed or enable you to ignore and then forget to do the important task.
This app does everything I wanted it to do - specifically, it reminds me to call someone and provides their phone number in the alert.
In response to a couple previous reviews, the app DOES allow you to type whatever you want into the "who" field for calls and meetings and such- click "cancel" in the contacts window and a keyboard appears. Not sure if this is new, but I thought I'd point it out because it was causing confusion for some users.
C'mon guys - make it cloud capable !
I love, love this app.
I find it easier to construct-compose out my reminders on my iPad (or a desktop PC, Mac) but when I do, my iPhone doesn't synch with those same reminders.
The iCloud reminders app leaves a lot to be desired, like the ability to re-order, prioritze the reminders, but it darn sure synch's them up across all devices.
Let's take a walk on the cloud train, with the option to synch w specific devices, or not as the user specifies.
