Quickly is for those times when you don’t need a to-do application to set a reminder.
Bring it up, set a time with an optional message, then get back to what you were doing.

• A fast, clear and familiar interface that gets out of your way.
• Use h/m/s abbreviations to specify a relative time, e.g. 3m 30. Or use colon notation such as to specify a time of day, e.g. 6:30. When you’re done, the time becomes a clear, easy-to-read format.
• Make minor adjustments to the time with the up & down arrow keys, and by 10-minute increments by holding the Command key.
• Keep track of multiple reminders in a way that best suits your workflow, using a popover, window, or widget.
• Activate Quickly using the app icon, the menu bar or a system-wide keyboard shortcut.
• Use a system alert sound, or add your own.
• Supports dark mode.

A single in-app purchase adds more features:
• Integration with the Reminders app to have Quickly reminders across all of your devices.
• Keep frequently-used reminders as favourites, and set using numbered keyboard shortcuts.
• To get your attention, you can choose to show the reminder in a dedicated alert window instead.
• Automate Quickly with the Shortcuts app, or AppleScript.

What’s New

Version 2.0

Version 2 is a major update:

• Set multiple reminders at once, and track using a popover, window or widget
- Add multiple reminders quickly by holding the Option key before setting a new reminder. This also works when setting a reminder from a favourite.
- The widget requires macOS 11 or later.
• The upcoming reminder is now shown more prominently
• The main window can be dragged from the middle of the screen
• Removed the “Allow time of day without suffix” preference. Typing the colon format will now be treated as 24-hour time. For example, “15:30” will be interpreted as “3:30 pm”.
• Delivered reminders are no longer automatically marked as complete when the main window is shown, allowing you to act on them when you're ready.
• Various other design changes
• Now requires macOS 10.13 or later
• Added an easter egg (macOS 10.15 or later)

These new features below require the in-app purchase:

• Temporarily hide all reminders from the alert window using the Snooze menu item
• Add frequently-used reminders as favourites, and set using numbered keyboard shortcuts or the pointer
- Manage favourites in Quickly Preferences, or add favourites quickly by holding the Control key, and clicking the star icon.
• Control Quickly using the Shortcuts app (requires macOS 12 or later), in addition to scripting

Good but needs work

Quick and easy and intuitive to use. However, I would really like to be able to set multiple notifications at a time, as my work requires many overlapping reminders (devs: I’d be willing to pay for this feature). Also, the sound doesn’t seem to be working though my volume is turned way up.
