Mon, 13 Aug 2012 Reminders for iPad and iPhone review
You've already got it
- Manufacturer: Apple
- Pros: Very simple to use; it’s the app that introduced location reminders
- Cons: You have to add locations to your Contacts list before you can use them
- Price: Free
- Star rating:
You wish you didn’t have so much to keep track of and you’d rather not spend longer learning a To Do app than doing what you need to get done. Apple’s own free app is for you because it’s extremely simple and works well.
It did also introduce the great notion of location reminders. At first it’s just remarkable that your iPhone pipes up when pass your supermarket. But then you start using it for everything and can’t understand why we haven’t always had them.
Then there’s Siri: pick up your iPhone and tell it to remind you to look for that file when you get to work. Say that, put it out of your mind and know that you will be reminded at the right time and place – on your iPhone, on your iPad and on your Mountain Lion Mac.
