View Full Version : Looking for an... aggressive Android reminder app

Hey folks,

After a glorious death, my old HTC smartphone has been retired. It was extremely useful for me with the built-in reminder system, because event reminders were loud, obnoxious, and they would keep chiming and squawking until you deliberately dismissed them.

I just picked up an Android phone (with Sprint) and the built in reminder / task system is... uh, not ADD sufficient. It's far too gentle and subtle.

I need something that will, essentially, get up in my face in a way that's impossible to ignore, and does it immediately and loudly. Mostly for task / appointment / chore reminders, but some alarm functionality would be great as well.

Any suggestions? I've been doing a brief search of the forum here, but most of the recommendations I've come across for the kind of app I'm looking for seem to be for iPhone software.

I've been switching around a lot, but right now, I'm using "My Life Organized" It has a desktop app too, so you can set reminders for anything, and have it separate from your calendar.

Well I tried many of these like Evernote, To-do etc.

but I think the closest that came to helping me in ADD has been Astrid. I'm not happy with any of the things that I came across so far.

I use post-its, and my kitchen looks like a scene from Bruce Amlighty

Bruce decides to turn all the prayers into post-it notes so they will get out of his head
