It is a nice app

But I have no lock screen widget or widget period. It doesn't even show up in my widget list. There is no instructions at all. The only thing under the option tab is to set how many reminders you can add between 1-5. Disappointed again.

Amazing App

Really liking the new messaging feature. Being able to message friends right from the iOS notifications with 3D Touch is definitely nice, and lets everyone stay up-to-date with details about our reminders. Keep more useful stuff coming please!!!

Thank you

I love this app! I especially enjoy the ability to add friends, share reminders with them and even message within the app. Easy to use and no more paper checklists!
