On the Friday just gone, iTandCoffee ran the first class in the 'Bring your Busy Life Under Control using your iPad and iPhone' 2-class series.
One of the areas we focus on in this first class is how to make use of the Reminders app on your device - to help you keep on top of things.
The question that always arises is: What are ‘Reminders’, and how are they different from 'Calendar' entries?
A Reminder is generally a task that you have for a particular date, day of the week, specific time, or some other repeating day/time interval, or a task that you must do when you get somewhere or leave somewhere.
Typically, Reminders do not have a time period associated with them – they are just things that you want to be reminded. Or they are things that you would have otherwise put on your written ‘to do’ list.
Before the Reminders app arrived on iOS, many people (including me!) would have created a Calendar event with the same start and end date/time (ie zero duration), and set an ‘Alert’ on that Calendar event to provide a notification at the selected time.
But the Calendar app is really supposed to be for events, appointments, meetings, social occasions, etc – it is not supposed to be a ‘to do’ list.
The beauty of the Reminders app is that it allows you to see a list of tasks and when they are due – and you can create multiple Reminder lists for managing the different areas of your life.
You can even share a Reminder list with another person so that you can remotely nag them!
In this week's Handy Hint for iTandCoffee Club members, we look at how to easily create these reminders, and what to do when the reminder pops up on your screen.
