Love this App!

This makes the reminders app so much more useful to have a shortcut to add a reminder instead of having to go into the reminders app! Would to see an option in the future to be able to add a daily or weekly repeat to the reminder within the instaremind bar - then the app would be perfect! Thanks for a great easy to use app!

Great improvement for Reminders! Love it

Thanks for writing this, it's great. Really makes Reminders more central to my workflow. I'd love it if clicking on the InstaRemind menubar icon would bring up a list of upcoming reminders (I know, I can use notification center, but this would be better). Ideally, if I could pick a view (such as Scheduled or Today) to display when I click on the 'bell' this would pretty much make InstaRemind perfect.

I can already tell you that your request is on our roadmap and we're planning to launch this feature by the end of this year. (Maybe a lite version sooner)

Kind regards and stay healthy!
