This Is The Most Underrated App Already On Your iPhone

The Reminders app that comes on your iPhone can make your daily errands and tasks a bit less tedious, so why aren’t you using it?

It’s free, works as well (if not better) than most of its third party competitors, and ties in perfectly with Siri if you have the iPhone 4S.

Here’s why you should be using Reminders.

Here's Reminders, an app that's already on your iPhone and you're probably not using. So what does it do?

Before we go to bed, Reminders is our go-to app for jotting down things to remember for the next day.

The killer feature here is that Reminders lets you set up times when your phone will buzz and remind you to do something.

As soon as we leave work, our phone will buzz and remind us to pick up a prescription on the way home.

If you have an iPhone 4S, Siri becomes infinitely more useful.

We also use Reminders as a To Do list for work related tasks.

For example, this reminder buzzed my phone this morning. Once you put in a reminder for something, you don't need to worry about it anymore.

It's easy to set up a reminder for your To Do item when you leave the office, arrive at home, or at a specific time (what we use most often).

One of the best parts about Reminders is that when you type out an item, you can press Return to instantly move to the next item. In this way, you can make long checklists very quickly.

Reminders also lives in your Notification centre so you can keep track of things due today. Just pull down the Notifications centre by swiping down from the top bar on your phone.

Once you check off items, they stick around for a few minutes. Soon, your completed items move to...

Lastly, you can use the app for repeating reminders like this one.

Ultimately, Reminders is a nice little time-saver that makes it so you don't need to constantly keep track of all the little things happening in your life.
