Alarmed ~ Reminders + Timers app review: fully functional free app with extras purchase option



Alarmed ~ Reminders + Timers is an iPad and iPhone reminder app that allows you to import directly from your iOS reminder app, set up one time and on-going reminders, start timers, and more. Easy-to-use, attractive layout, and notes fields all make this productivity app very useable.

Remember What You Need To Do

Alarmed ~ Reminders + Timers has a reminder section where you can set a one-time reminder, or an ongoing reminder. This would be great for setting events such as taking out the trash, picking up medication refills, or paying your gardener. You could also use this section as a task list on the one-time recurrence.

I also like the timer section, because it allows you to save the timer for later. There are lots of times that you set a five-minute timer on the iOS timer, and then have to reset it to an hour for diner, later on you need to set it for two hours for your sleep timer, and you are constantly changing the timer. This app allows you to set a reminder, save it, and use it over and over, which means no more changing it all the time. Additionally, the timer can be set for as little as one second, and as long as 99 hours, 59 minutes, and 59 seconds. This is much more flexible than the iOS timer.

Alarmed ~ Reminders + Timers is a fully functional free app. If you really like it, then for $2.99 you get a bunch of extras such as DayMinders, Automatic Reminders App Support, iCloud Syncing, and Additional Sounds.

DayMinders could be used for things such as reminding you to take your toddler to the potty while training, or if you’re not a parent to take a break, stretch at your desk, get a drink of water, or take a medication you don’t usually take. These can be set for every 45 minutes and continue for the eight-hour work day.

If you already have a lot of reminders typed in your iOS reminder app, don’t worry. You can sync them to Alarmed for free, and select whether to delete the original or leave it alone. I gave this a try leaving the original, and really like how it works! I have detailed reminders specifying my monthly bills, and the formatting synced right over without a hitch.
