Let’s be honest with one another, without reminders our lives would be in absolute chaos. Whether you’re one of those with an elephant’s memory or the absent-minded type that leaves the fridge door open all night, a simple nudge when something is ready or when you need to take action is vital.
And while there are those internal functions in your phone that might alert you when the time comes, they are too easily swiped away, never to be seen again. That’s why a text reminder is the way to go.
SMS Reminders is a simple app that manages all of your tasks with uncomplicated ease. The color-coded calendar helps to give you a view of what kind of activities you’ve you have planned on any particular day and with a single glance. So if a day is blue, you’ll know that there’s an activity planned for this day. If there’s no color at all, you’re able to fill future days with activities and schedule a reminder.
For those with a busy calendar at work this can be a life-saver, but of course, it’s just as vital for those with a busy social life.
Let’s say you’ve got a Game of Thrones viewing party to attend on Sunday night (who doesn’t?). You simply add it to the calendar in the SMS Reminders app and do what you naturally do, forget about it.
SMS Reminders stays on top of it and will alert you with a text message letting you know the details of the event. In this case, “At 8:00 PM: Game of Thrones viewing party.” You’ll get the heads up with plenty of time to paint yourself like a White Walker and make it for chips and dip before the show starts.
SMS Reminders is currently available for free on iOS devices (iPhone and iPad) with additional features coming soon.
