Quick-entry for Apple's Reminders app.
Remind Me Faster is designed to let you add a reminder with as few taps as possible. Open the app and you're typing. Add a reminder and you're ready to type the next. The interface is optimised for the moment something crosses your mind.
It works with and compliments the built-in Reminders app that's already on your iPhone or iPad.
• Set a notification time with as little as one tap, or type a time/date
• Swipe left or right to quick-switch lists
• Tap the list name to choose another
• Tap the priority to increase: • ! !! !!!
• Added reminders can be viewed in the built in Reminders app
• Dark mode and alternative icons
Remind Me Faster is free to use and without ads. Some extra features are available as in-app purchases.
Remind Me Faster 3.2 just brings a few small tweaks to improve how the app behaves in iOS 15.
• Sometimes launching the app in iOS 15 takes a few seconds to fetch reminder lists and causes a visual delay. I haven’t yet managed to eliminate this delay, but it should feel a bit faster and smoother now.
• Fixed the layout in the settings screen.
• Made some further under-the-hood optimisations for iOS 15.
• The custom App Icons feature should no longer show on Apple Silicon Macs (because it doesn’t work on Macs).
Ratings and Reviews
I just want to preface this review by saying that I almost never give reviews, but this app is just so good I have to support it. I am a very forgetful but very “fast paced” person, so having an app that allows me to set reminders in mere seconds is an absolute lifesaver, and saved me a lot of money so I didn’t have to buy a virtual assistant or something. The only sort of feature I can really suggest is a home screen widget with minimal controls/ options so quick, preset time reminders can be jotted down even faster. But honestly that’s not even necessary because the app is already extremely fast and easy to use. On top of the fact thag it’s just very aesthetically pleasing and minimalist. Thank you developer for this fantastic app, I would say your “labor of love” has paid off. Hope this app blows up someday as it should.
Fantastic App - Would love to see shortcuts support
I would love to see iOS shortcuts support added. But, otherwise, this app is easily among the top 5 most polished and intuitive app experiences of the 1,000+ I've used/tried over the years.
But, my workflow often has me setting reminders based on web pages and other shareable things. I know I can just build a shortcut for the official reminders app (which I have) but typically I'm looking to set date/time for the reminder as I'm creating the reminder, at which point I always miss the ease-of-use of the RemindMeFaster interface.
Two other suggestions:
1 - would love to have URLs pasted into notes automatically moved to the URL field of the reminder. Otherwise, they aren't clickable in the reminders app. That or I'd love to have the option for that input.
2 - this app's design and UX would work very well for a Notes app companion, too (IMHO)
Very useful, but not customizable enough
I would really like to be able to change the reminder single-tap buttons. For example, “Tue 9am” (where “Tue” is tomorrow’s day-of-the-week) would be much more useful than just arbitrarily adding “+24h” to whatever time it is now. There is a *lot* of empty screen real estate on the bottom right, so there is plenty of room at the bottom for more “quick buttons”. (To set a quick reminder, I just need a title and don’t need 70% of the screen to be empty.) Just my 2¢...
I find myself having to go in to the custom reminder screen all the time because of this.
Otherwise, this is a super-convenient way of reminding me to do things when I think of them!
Developer Response ,
Thanks very much for the feedback, and I'm really happy to hear that it's helpful for you. I agree that options like 'Tomorrow at 8am" can be a really good option. I'll consider this for future updates (when I find the time!).
