Those of you who know me will know that I really love using Siri on my iPhone and iPad.
Day in, day out, I use it to set reminders, sent texts, dictate notes, make phone calls, read my emails while I drive (hands free, of course), and so much more.
This week, I found a Siri command that I have been needing for so long - one that can remind me later about something that I have received, seen, created, etc.
What do I mean by this?
Well, as an example, I so often get an email or a text that I can't action right at that point in time, but need to remember to action at a later time.
I don't want to have to trawl through my long list of emails/texts to find it - if I actually do remember to do that! Flagging in the Mail app doesn't quite work - again, because this requires me to remember to go back and look at my 'flagged' emails.
I had been using Evernote for emails that I needed to action later. I would forward my emails to my Evernote, and set a reminder there. An adequate solution, but I will now be using Siri instead because it is SO much easier.
I now tell Siri to set a reminder (for a particular date/time) about whatever I am looking at on my iPhone (or iPad) screen. Siri will create that reminder WITH a link that allows me to go straight to that 'thing' (email, message, web page, calendar entry, note, etc), so that I have all the information I need in front of me. In the image I have shown in this article, tapping on the little Mail app symbol takes you straight to the applicable mail message.
I am using this every day now and loving my reminders and the quick, easy access they give me to relevant information.
