Looking for a daily reminder utility

Discussion in 'Apple/Mac' started by Rich Gibson, Jul 10, 2008.

  1. I don't seem to find anything serviceable in the native Mac OS or ICal. I'm looking for a utility which can pop up and give me a small reminder to do a repeatable chore. I need to accomplish a few a day, every day.

  2. Have you tried using iCal to send you an email?

    I assume the alarm in iCal is not loud enough?

    The alarm alert on the iPhone is a pop up notice.
  3. Isn't there a "To-Do" function in iCal that will send reminders to you in Mail? Or in Mail itself, there is a To-Do function. I've never used it so don't know how it works. Thanks.
  4. I was looking for a non-persistent reminder. That would start to clutter up my inbox if I was away for a couple days.
  5. I've got one of those, but she gets mad when I call her a utility :rolleyes: .

  9. Took the work right out of my mouth.

    Though I'm still working on the non-persistent part. :wink:
  10. Hey, wait -- easy solution : get an iPhone!!! Then you'll have those pop-up reminders right there in your pocket!

    If you are a unix guru

    You can try cron.
  12. Rich,

    Have you tried post-it notes on your monitor or on your D3? It's not elegant but it sure is cheap!!

  14. I use the MS Outlook calendar extensively and routinely set my items with a 15 minutes reminder. Outlook allows many custom functions for appointments (a/o, many types of repeat). I sync it with my iPod Touch.
    So, between my computer and iPod I have all the scheduling and their reminders I need.

    If you're using FireFox/Thunderbird, you can get the Lightning calendar add-on which will allow you schedule tasks, reminders, appointments, etc.
