Act Later ~ Smart Reminders
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Schedule reminders and do them directly from Notification Center without having to switch between apps. In a hurry and need to call your friend back in a hour, or send an important email next week? Schedules reminders with a range of actions: (call, sms, email, tweet, open an app, flashlight) and make them show up in Notification Center at a specified date and time. By rescheduling them after a time interval, or immediately, they will reappear in Notification Center and will always be available at your finger tips.

What's New in Version 1.2.2
*Bug fix when choosing from contacts
Version 1.2.2 - still very buggy & crashes
This app is a good idea but its implementation is not good. Feels like it should be version 0.9 and very much in preproduction development.
The user interface is very clunky eg 1)when creating a new reminder there is no visual clue such as a text entry cursor indicating the description field is the focus; 2) when deleting actions the app crashes every time (or is it supposed to exit after deleting an item?)
The crashing habits are improved on previous versions (when applying an action consistently crashed the app) but still extremely irritating eg when setting an action to make a call the app crashes intermittently when using the search option to find a contact - extremely annoying as you lose the data entered for the action ie you have to start again. This behaviour does not fill me with confidence using the product as it wastes my time not save it as in the app description. I haven't exhaustively checked other features but it wouldn't surprise me if there are numerous other buggettes in the app. A previous review mentioned the lack of the facility to add email body content - sounds like a good idea to me given this app is supposed to be about saving time.
Developer(s), pull your finger out and get this app sorted - it does not do your reputation any favours so you're very unlikely to sell any other apps you may have developed or are going to develop. Get the crashing sorted right now and then completely revamp the UI - the current version is not good. Take note of the reviews where people have taken the time to give good feedback especially on the way the app has been implemented. Check out the app in the context of how it would be used not from the point of view of 'that's a good idea' - look at it as a fully integrated facility and check out the inter process communication - make sure the app does request information more than once including data obtainable from external date sources such as the Contacts database.
And get a move on - I am very unhappy that you have the nerve to charge for a product which fails to work as claimed.
I am happy to provide a further review of the next release - if there isn't a vast improvement, that'll be the last review I give and the app will be removed plus I shall not be looking at any of your further offerings.
