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.
