So what to do?
Well, I have just set a Reminder to deal with the Tooth Fairy tonight. It will make a sound and pop up a message up on my screen at 9pm tonight - a suitable time for dealing with Tooth Fairies!
Have you discovered Reminders on your iPad and iPhone?
Telling Siri what you want to be reminded about is a really quick and easy way to create Reminders without having to type a thing!
Just hold down the Home button for a second or two and then tell Siri what you want to be reminded about (eg. "Remind me to put the bins out at 8pm tonight."). (If you have upgraded to iOS 7.1, you can keep the Home button held down while you give your instruction.)
You will then be asked to confirm the Reminder details and voilà - a reminder is added to your reminder list. What a great tool for those of us who can't always rely on our memories any more!
(Note. Siri is only available on iPhone on 4S and newer, and from iPad 3rd generation and newer. To turn on Siri, go to Settings -> General -> Siri. You will see there that you can choose for Siri to be either male or female - a new feature of iOS 7.1.)
