Due — Reminders, Countdown Timers
By Due Apps LLP
Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
Type "Make dinner reservation at 9am tomorrow" and your reminder is set for 9 AM tomorrow.
"Cancel subscription in 1 month" and you get a buzz a month later.
Just tell Due in your own words what you'd like to do, and when you'd like to be reminded.*
There are no awkward date pickers to fight with, nor rigid date and time format to follow.
Your reminder is set as soon as you're done typing.
Due makes sure things actually get done by keeping you on your toes, sending you periodic reminders until you actually mark the reminders complete.
The super-fast reminder app on your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch—now on your Mac.
* Natural date and time parsing available for non-recurring reminders only.
◆ FEATURES ◆
- Fast. Really fast.
Reminders are set as soon as you finish typing what to do, and when to do it.
- Natural date and time parsing
No awkward date pickers nor rigid date and time format to follow. Set due date and time by typing what is natural to you.*
"4pm" works just as fine as "4:00 PM" or "16:00", and "Aug 22" works as well as "22 August" or "8/22". Relative dates like "in 20 mins" or "in 6 months" work too.
- "Collect passport next Monday 4pm"
- "Make dinner reservation at 14:00 tomorrow"
- "Cancel subscription in 1 month"
- "Wish Sally happy birthday on Aug 22 at 8 AM"
- "Phone contract expires May 30 2014"
- Never miss any reminders with Auto snooze
Due repeatedly notifies you of missed reminders until they are marked done or rescheduled, making sure things get done and your list never go stale.
- Fully optimized for keyboard-only operation
Power users can skip the mouse and trackpad. Show or hide Due, create reminders, reschedule them, mark them complete, delete them. Everything you need is a keyboard shortcut away.
- Reusable countdown timers
Precise to the second, they are perfect for timing your coffee, tea and eggs. Set them up once and reuse them forever.
- Powerful recurring reminders
Vitamins before bed each night? Pay rent every 2 weeks on Monday? Submit a report on the last weekday of the month? Yup.
- Keep reminders in sync across your Mac, iPhone and iPad
Due supports sync through iCloud or Dropbox. Create a reminder on your Mac and it will be there on your iPhone and iPad.**
**Sync on iOS requires Due for iOS (sold separately). With Due for iOS 2.0, your iPhone and iPad can sync in the background using Dropbox or iCloud.
- Search and Create
Search your reminders and timers. And if you don't find what you want, press Return to create a reminder with your search term.
- Drag and drop to create reminders
Create reminders by dragging emails, calendar events, text, links and more to Due.
- Share reminders with drag and drop, or copy and paste
Send your friend a reminder via Mail, Messages or Twitter by dragging or copying it. It even comes with a link so that he can add that reminder to his own copy of Due.
- Optional Menu Bar, dockless operation
Run Due directly from your menu bar, badge it with unattended alerts, and take Due off your Dock if you like.
- Assignable alert sounds
Assign distinctive alert sound for each reminder; louder and longer ones for important reminders, and subtler ones for less critical reminders.
- Undo and Redo
- Take control of your notifications
Customize how notifications behave—whether they display a notification, play a sound, bounces the icon or highlights the icon in the menu bar—when reminders and timers become due.
◆ COMPATIBILITY ◆
Requires Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite or later.

What's New in Version 1.5.1
Fixes bug where dates are incorrectly displayed and parsed if system date changes since Due was launched
What's New in Due for macOS 1.5

◆ Up to 3x Faster Syncing ◆
Due now syncs your reminders up to three times faster than before, all thanks to the all-new JSON database format.
◆ And More ◆
- Updated Dropbox sync to version 2. You should no longer be seeing conflicted sync files and Dropbox file change notifications on your desktop when Due syncs.
- When editing a reminder, Due no longer scrolls to the position of the edited reminder.
Historically Good App BUT Issues with New Versions - POOR support
Have owned this app for a long time. Has a lot of versatility (both timers and reminders), and just worked. However, with some recent updates, I have encountered issues. The first issue is Lack of Support. No one is or has timely responded to my problems. Here are the current issues with Due. Snycing, I run Due on both my Mac and Iphone, Worked great until a recent update. Now my phone and my Mac are out of sync so I am constantly getting pinged by both my Mac and my phone for the same reminders. Second issue: the IOS version of the app keeps pinging me on my Apple Watch. Historically, I have turned Due Reminders off on my phone. I have tripled checked. DUE notifications are not turned on for my Iphone nor are the “mirrored” from my Iphone. But somehow they keep showing up on my watch. Not sure how this is even possible. The Most frustrating part is no one is getting back with me.
I’ve always liked this app, BUT...
I’ve enjoyed using Due for a good long while. Extremely handy. I use OmniFocus for lots of my task management, but there are some things that need to get done and you want them to keep reminding you (at a period of your choice) until it gets done. It’s been a good app for a long while, but the way it seamlessly syncs for me now is wonderful. You enter a reminder on one device, and it’s on your other devices almost instantly. That is the differencce that makes ALL the difference for me! Can’t wait to use it in iOS 11.
Still the best simple cross-platform reminder app!
If you're looking for something simple that JUST WORKS, look no further. I use it across two laptops, an iPad, iPhone and Watch. Couldn't do my job without it!!
Rock on Due team!!
