Nudge - Reminders
By Simple Tailor Software
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Nudge is a simple, focused reminder app that lives somewhere in the space between the built-in Clock and Calendar apps. It’s perfect for when you just need a quick pop-up reminding you to pay a bill, water your geraniums, or pick up a bottle of wine for dinner.
Have a friend (or, more likely, spouse) that conveniently “forgets” even the simplest of tasks? Well, with Nudge, you can eliminate that excuse once and for all! With a few quick taps, you can send a reminder that they can add to their own copy of Nudge with just one click! (Okay, two. But it’s still cool.) If they don’t have Nudge, they still get a nicely formatted email reminding them of the task.
Nudge is more flexible than the Clock app because you can set reminders for a specific date and time—whether it’s in five minutes, five days, or five weeks.
Nudge is simpler than the Calendar app because you don’t have to set separate start and end dates, and you don’t have to manually add a separate alert. Built-in presets let you quickly set the most important thing—the date and time—cutting down on the time you spend spinning all those little dials. For everything else, Nudge has sensible defaults so that you can set your reminder and get out. (And if you disagree, feel free to change them!)
Of course, if you need to, you can set custom options for each reminder. You can set reminders to repeat at one of several intervals (hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly), which is good if you need to be bugged about something you keep putting off. You can also choose from twenty custom, built-in sound effects, which range from soft and gentle to loud and obnoxious. Or choose to have no sound, with or without a vibration.
Finally, Nudge keeps track of all your past reminders, so you can keep track of everything you were supposed to have done. And past reminders act as templates for new ones, so you don’t have to re-enter your most commonly used settings.

What's New in Version 2.2
Minor updates for iOS 5, and (hopefully) a bit of a speed boost for users with lots of reminders.
Also: if you're having trouble with Nudge under iOS 5, Open the Settings app, tap Notifications, and look for the entry for Nudge. Make sure all of Nudge's alert options are set to On, and the Alert Style is set to either Banners or Alerts.
Love *idea* of this app
... I set up a single reminder as a test. Have used all the "loudest" alarm sounds provided. Have had it a little over a week and have YET to hear one single alarm even though my iPod is within arm's reach at all times.
IF there were either a scale volume setting for each individual sound, or some other option to control volume settings for this app's alarms, independent of overall volume settings for my device, I could give the app 5 stars. As of now, the app completely fails in its single purpose... to alert me to recurring events.
I bought it hoping to be able to remove the clutter of daily reminders from iCal, such as reminders to take or give medications, feed pets, take out frozen foods to defrost for dinner... things my ADHD brain commonly forgets without an audible alert. iCal reminders have worked really well... but my daily calendar is filled with these sorts of mundane daily reminders, making it very easy to overlook actual APPTs.
My ONE single complaint is the fact NO alert sound is sufficiently loud to gain my attention. MOST of them I can barely hear holding my device in my hand to play them. I had similar complaints with my former iPhone's ring tones and this is one of the primary reasons I no longer HAVE an iPhone.
Change this ONE thing sufficiently, you'll get FIVE stars from me because other than that, the app would do precisely what I NEED it to do.
Nudge Extremely Helpful!!!
I don't use a lot of these organizational Apps however I got this one about a month ago. It was in some ways a bit of a life changer!!!
Its super simple design and quick functioning allow you to add reminders all day without hesitation. Weather they are for that day or a later future date, set the nudge and you won't forget!
Everyone should have this and I promise the more that you use it, the more productive your day to day life will be!!!
Great app....I use it everyday!
Love the app. I use it for all my wake up alarms( I love not having to physically shut the alarm off .)
I have a handicapped daughter that needs multiple meds through out the day. The app works great to remind me of upcoming medications. Would love to see the ability to set individual days of the week for certain reminders in the next update.....ie...M-F, MWF, TT, Weekends only. Even without these options, I still recommend the app to everyone.
