This is marvelous idea! I forget everything.

But, I have to ask, how do you stop yourselves from becoming annoying? Also, the fact that 90% of the time these aren't reminders, but distractions.

Also, I don't have a phone plan. Just an iphone that's used as a wifi device. Now what?

I think that this relies on specific timing for receiving the messages though, so if the phone is not constantly on wifi you miss a part of it.

-----


the timing isn't precise to more than perhaps +-1 day, missing that particular couple minutes when the text would arrive doesn't matter

Yeah it's a tricky balance - it's 3 notifications per item you "stash," so it isn't too bad. But our plan is to make a mobile app with push notifications so we can control the notifications and make them intelligently timed.

Is that actually common in any part of the world?

Phone is now optional - you can get just emails instead
