Due, a reminders app for iOS, has made its way to the Mac App Store.
Just tell Due in your own words what you'd like to do, and when you'd like to be reminded. There are no awkward date pickers to fight with, nor rigid date and time format to follow. Your reminder is set as soon as you're done typing.
Due makes sure things actually get done by keeping you on your toes, sending you periodic reminders until you actually mark the reminders complete.
✓ Fast. Really fast.
Reminders are set as soon as you finish typing what to do, and when to do it.
✓ Natural date and time parsing
No awkward date pickers nor rigid date and time format to follow. Set due date and time by typing what is natural to you.
"4pm" works just as fine as "4:00 PM" or "16:00", and "Aug 22" works as well as "22 August" or "8/22". Relative dates like "in 20 mins" or "in 6 months" work too.
- "Collect passport next Monday 4pm"
- "Make dinner reservation at 14:00 tomorrow"
- "Cancel subscription in 1 month"
- "Wish Sally happy birthday on Aug 22 at 8 AM"
- "Phone contract expires May 30 2014"
✓ Never miss any reminders with Auto snooze
Due repeatedly notifies you of missed reminders until they are marked done or rescheduled, making sure things get done and your list never go stale.
✓ Fully optimized for keyboard-only operation
Power users can skip the mouse and trackpad. Show or hide Due, create reminders, reschedule them, mark them complete, delete them. Everything you need is a keyboard shortcut away.
✓ Reusable countdown timers
Precise to the second, they are perfect for timing your soft-boiled eggs, coffee brewing and tea steeping. Set them up once and reuse them forever
✓ Powerful recurring reminders
Vitamins before bed each night? Pay rent every 2 weeks on Monday? Submit a report on the last weekday of the month? Yup.
✓ Keep reminders in sync across your Mac, iPhone and iPad
Due supports over-the-air sync through iCloud or Dropbox. Create a reminder on your Mac and it's there on your iPhone and iPad.*
* Over-the-air sync requires the app to be launched for changes to be synced. Sync on iOS requires Due for iOS (sold separately).
✓ Assignable alert sounds
Assign distinctive alert sound for each reminder; louder and longer ones for important reminders, and subtler ones for less critical reminders.
✓ Undo and Redo
Relax, it's okay to make mistakes.
✓ Growl notifications
Customize how your notifications look through themes in Growl (sold separately).
You can purchase Due from the App Store for $9.99.
