Create a reminder, get reminded of it, and tell your friends to do the same.
Bzzt is designed to help you remember things. Once you create a reminder, Bzzt will remind you periodically throughout your day from the hours of 8AM to 6PM. Bzzt won't remind you during the night. Unless you tell it to. Just enable push notifications.
For your frown-upside-downers Bzzt lets you spread positivity and influence others by letting you share your reminders. Just tell the app you want to "think a positive thought" and when Bzzt reminds you, you can remind your friends.
Currently in Bzzt there are three reminder type settings: Sometimes, Often, Bug Me!
Each of these reminder types will send you notifications at different times of the day. Some are more often than others, and each have specific reasons for being in the app.
- You will be reminded at least three times per day. It could be in the morning, or it might be at night. Bzzt will pick between two and three random times during your day to remind you. Use this setting to receive reminders like "Take A Break" or "Think A Positive Thought."
- This reminder settings will trigger randomly up to six times per day. "Often" is programmed to choose between four and six random times during your day. You might use this setting if you want to be reminded to "Drink Some Water" or to "Tell Mom I Love Her". This setting is meant to be more prominent in your day.
- This setting is meant to be very active during your day. "Bug Me!" will send you notifications up to eight times per day at random. Bzzt alert you approximately every hour and a half. This setting is great if you want to create a new habit, or break a bad one. You might use it to remind you things like "Stop Hunching Over", "Put the Phone Down", or "Compliment Yourself."
Bzzt can be used as anything from a simple stretch clock to a bad habit breaker. Starting a small change is statistically proven to lead to long term success.
Bug fixes and performance improvements.
Ratings and Reviews
What a cool little app!
It seems like such a simple idea. “I want to remind myself a few times a day to ____.” But have you ever actually tried to set reminders like that in your phone? I have. I’ve set my own annoying timers in my phone... and I’ve eventually anticipated, resented, and turned off all of them. But not this one! First off, the user interface is something that I’ve never seen before. It’s so simple and user-friendly, I truly hope this is the direction all apps are headed. Secondly, this app actually sends notifications at random times, or at least at a pretty convincing approximation. I don’t *expect* them, so they’re always a surprise which is the whole point. Great app. Highly recommend.
Does One Thing...Poorly
This should be a “does one thing well” app, but its behavior is nonsensical. Downloaded it last night and created 3 reminders set to the seemingly least frequent setting. Within 10 minutes I had received 10 reminders saying “Reminders will start tomorrow.” Had to block the reminders in settings. Turned them on again in the morning, and while I got a few of my scheduled reminders, also kept getting “reminders will start tomorrow” ones. The app also gives you no clue as to what the actual time period is between its three settings. Interesting idea, but broken at the moment.
Developer Response ,
As we continue developing our app, we will run into bugs. Since our app is brand new and out technology behind it is new as well, it can still have bugs. We have thoroughly tested our code but sometimes things slip through the cracks.
We have gone in and removed all reminders that had gotten stuck and were “retrying.” You shouldn’t get those anymore.
Additionally, in our next release, we will have a section in the app which explains how our technology works.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
I like this app. You just put your stuff in and go
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
