There are a lot of reminder/calendar/todo list apps, and it's hard to make sense of all of them. Hoping someone can recommend one that meets the following criteria:

  1. Reminders are as easy to enter as possible. Ideally one screen where I type a quick description, and enter the date and time that I want the alert.
  2. Reminders must be easily snoozable, for an arbitrary (or near arbitrary) amount of time. By this I mean: The phone vibrates and the reminder pops up. I then have the option to dismiss the reminder, or to snooze it, and (extremely important) I can choose (right there, not just a default setting within the app) how long to snooze it for. I should be able to either type in a number of minutes to snooze it for, or select from a list (e.g. 10/20/30/40/50/60 minutes, etc.)

Big bonus points if I can enter reminders via the web and have them automatically synced to the phone.

Nice to have: Daily view (i.e. show all reminders for a given day)

Does something like this exist?

  • Not sure it satisfies all of your requirements, but how about Due? It also says there are some snooze interval limitations – binarybob Sep 14 '12 at 18:38
  • Thanks - it looks nice, but those snooze limitations are a deal-breaker unfortunately. And wait, an app can only display 64 notifications? (Per what, exactly?) Guess I may not be getting an iPhone after all, since this is close to the #1 thing I want a smartphone for... – Jer Sep 14 '12 at 20:34
  • I'm a user of Due, and it has variable length snooze intervals, even from the lock screen. It's not really designed to hold a large number of things; more to bug you about a small number of important things until you do them. I have 7 items in there, and have had as high as 12'ish. There is a minimum interval: 10 minutes on OSX and I can't remember if it's 5 or 10 or iOS. – Paul Oct 22 '18 at 0:17
