Quick rant about to-do apps
Today I again found myself wanting a to-do app that allows me to set alarms for certain tasks, specifically I wanted an iPhone app that does this. A very cursory Google search didn’t come up with anything useful, but admittedly my search was far from exhaustive. What bugs me is that most to-do apps do not have the functionality to set alarms. Why not?? Doesn’t this seem like a logical, intuitive feature for a to-do app to have? I don’t want to constantly be checking my to-do app to make sure I’m not forgetting anything; it’s the app’s job to remind me. Why else would i be typing up a list of to-dos in the firat place? I think I wanted some app like this even back when I had my Windows Mobile device. IIRC, the 3rd-party Palm PIM apps had this feature, but on later devices I found that I only needed a to-do app, not really a full-blown PIM app. What would be even cooler on GPS-enabled devices, is if the to-do app would wake up and pop up a reminder for tasks I have to do in certain locations, like remind me to buy some grocery item when I’m at the grocery store. But I am willing to forgo that “advanced” feature for the basic alarm feature. 😛
So what’s up, People? Where is my to-do app with alarm function? If anyone has app recommendations, I’m all ears.
