Type in content and it helps quickly locate related results.

Remind: Multiple Ways to Keep Informed

As the name implies, Reminders is meant to be used to remind users of something. Therefore, the important point is to remind in time. The Reminders app offers two ways to keep users informed according to a certain date or location. When you're creating a reminder, you can opt to remind you "on a day" or "at a location" or both.

You can set alarm to remind you at a specific time in a day. If you want to repeat being reminded, tap "Repeat" for more settings. If you prefer to be reminded at a location, you need to allow the app to locate your position. You can select a location and let Reminders prompt you when you're getting in or out of the range (a radius of 50 meters) of this location. Also, you can set both at the same time.


Remind at a Date or Location

Sharing: Share Reminders with Others

Another feature that makes the Reminders app brilliant is that it can share your lists with anyone you want to remind along the way. Since you're sharing a list with another person, he/she will get reminders with any reminders included in the list. How to do so? Here's a tutorial.
STEP 1. Launch the Reminders app and select a list to check more reminders.
STEP 2. Tap "Edit" on the right top and choose the "Sharing" option.
STEP 3. Tap "Add person" and select a/multiple friends from your contacts.
STEP 4. Tell your friend(s) to accept the invitation.

Siri: Ask Siri to Note Down a Reminder

As a powerful intelligent assistant, Siri is well-compatible with most apps on your iPhone. There is a convenient way to create a reminder by Siri. Siri is so smart that can comprehend and deal with what you said. If you have no spare hands to add a reminder, you can simply launch Siri and say something like "Siri, remind me to call Carl at 5 PM today."
