Remind Scott is an appointment reminder service based on text messages. SMS Texting gets people's attention better than calendar appointments and don't require the recipient to even use a compatible digital calendar. Unlike emails, texts do not get trapped by spam filters. Remind Scott allows users to schedule text message reminders for delivery at any time in the future. As a service, the device that created the message doesn't have to be on or even exist at the time of delivery because messages are posted to a server in the cloud which runs 24/7. Messages are received as real text messages although the caller ID will be the phone carrier's servers as opposed to the originating phone. Common usages include businesses reminding clients about dental cleanings, haircuts, oil changes, etc. Remind Scott is cheaper than post card reminders and nearly universal because of cell phones.

Remind Scott does not require a text message account to work. Instead, it only requires an Internet connection such as free WiFi to work. At the moment, Remind Scott messages can only be sent to phones in North America. However, the sender can be anywhere in the world as long as they have access to the Internet. Clever applications of Remind Scott include creating time capsules for delivery several years later or sending yourself a delayed phony text message to get yourself out of a boring meeting or date. Likewise, preparing birthday and anniversary reminders is a snap with Remind Scott's recurring reminder feature and helps avoid disappointments later.

This app requires access to your address book to work. Nothing that violates privacy will take place. It merely presents you with recipients by name so that you don't have to remember every phone number under the sun. If you deny access and later want to use the app anyway, you have to go into Settings->Privacy->Contacts->Remind Scott and set it to ON.

Already Indispensable - scheduled messaging


Send text messages, to others or yourself, send them now, or schedule them for later. Send yourself, or others, timed text reminders exactly when you need them. So much better than using the alarm clock, or iMessage. This is so simple, it's quickly earned a spot on my home screen.

So close to an awesome app

This would have been my saving grace had I known that when you schedule a specific date and time that you would be setting it in the Pacific Time Zone. I live in Michigan (Eastern Time Zone) and didn't receive my notification until exactly 3 hours too late. :-( Otherwise it worked perfectly. Just be prepared to adjust your time.

Oh, don't forget - this is awesome


Great simple app to easily schedule a text for the future. Perfect for that moment when you remember something you need to tell someone in the middle of the night but don't want to text them since they are sleeping!
