You may remember that I'm always on the hunt for better ways to stay organized. See, as I get older, I've found I can't remember a thing. If I don't put it on my calendar, write a reminder, or add it to my to-do list, it will be immediately forgotten. I hate this! I used to have such a good memory, but I blame a combination of aging, parenthood, and all that tequila in college catching up with me.
Since I got my iPhone, I've been looking for a reminders app, something that would actually remind me of the things on my to-do list. I've tried a handful and they disappointed me each time. No push alerts, no distinctive reminder sound, no way to organize by date, no way to see completed tasks, no way to delay something by a few days.
Then I found Alarmed and I love it.
I set myself a reminder for EVERYTHING (and I do mean everything). If there's anything I need to do--from bring snacks to my son's school to filling out paperwork to a coffee date to my bills, it goes on here. I can set the time I want to be reminded, and I try to make those reminders at a time when I know I'll be able to immediately take care of something, but I can always snooze or re-edit the reminder if I need to.
What I really love is that if I do ignore or forget about a reminder, it stays on my list and I see it anytime I open up the app. So if I actually "forget" something, no problem! I can see it there time and again.
If you're looking for a similar app, I wholeheartedly recommend. Download! Use! Never forget again!
Still curious, what's your favorite to-do list app?
