The most natural reminders app?
£2.29 Developer Martin Nguyen, maddin.io
Requires OS X 10.10 or higher If you thought reminders were sown up by Apple’s own app and the likes of Wunderlist, then this menu bar app for Yosemite will make you think again. Gestimer says it’s for those “little reminders”, which is something we scoffed at, but after just a few days you’ll begin to see the truth in it, and how Gestimer can work alongside your existing reminders apps, rather than replacing them.
To set a new reminder, you click and hold on the app’s menu bar icon and then drag it downwards to the centre of the desktop. As you drag, the time for that reminder increases. Let go and you can enter your reminder text and click ‘add a description’ to set it.
Gestimer is perfect for quick reminders when you’re in the middle of something because its dialog boxes are unobtrusive. We found ourselves using it for things we wouldn’t normally bother adding to Reminders. You really won’t bother jotting last minute things down on paper now! Christian Hall
A fantastic way to complement your more serious to-do apps on the Mac with something less intrusive.
