The quickest reminders app is also the best one

On my personal search for the best reminders app for the iPhone, I tried a dozen of apps and none of them worked for me. But Apple's own Reminders app was the worst: with its tabs and lists of different types of reminders, I feel lost every time I open it and editing and managing reminders seems like an impossible task.

What I really need from a reminders app is two things: first and foremost, that it'd be quick, and secondly, that it is simple, non-confusing.

And I've just found it. Remind Me by Nick Leith differs from all other reminders app that I have tried (including heavyweights like and the others) in one thing: you go straight into typing a reminder from the first screen you see in this app and you have quick, one-tap settings for timing right there as well.

I do not need a complicated system to manage my reminders, but I absolutely need to set them quickly and forget about them until the time comes to get reminded. Not everyone needs that, but if you are like me, chances are that you'd fall in love with this neat little app.

Remind Me - Create reminders faster by Nick Leith is free on the App Store

*it still works with and compliments the built in Reminders app that's already on your iPhone

i just use Cortana. She keeps the reminder at the top every time I search and reminds me via notification based on frequency I set. I can also add images or whatever attachments.

I just use Siri the same way... I do prefer iOS stock reminders app because: 1. integrated with Siri and she pulls information from reminders when I set calendar events and etc. 2. it allows me to choose if I want the reminder to be just on my Phone or the entire family (separate tabs).

I recommend NearMinder for super quick easy reminders: it's the only app to send you reminders based on your proximity to your contacts! With this app you can easily set reminders for things you have to do when meeting people and get notified when these people are nearby. It also works for location-based reminders. You should definitely try it!
