Android :: Best App For Tasks / Reminders

Aug 23, 2010

What is the best performing app to set a reminder to do something? Not an appt, but just to remember to do. a task list or todo app that shows up on the home screen. For instance, I need to remember to bring something to work for tomorrow. Or, like, remember to buy eggs on the way home. On previous non android phones, it had the task list showing on the home screen.

HTC Hero :: Reminders - Tasks - Calendar

Nov 30, 2009

I would like to know some thing about the calendar, can you set appointments to reoccur in, say 6 days time or something like that?

Also is there a place to store PIN numbers for cards or passwords etc. I'm useless with numbers and often need to check my current phone's "code memo" as they call it. (i have the SE K850i)

One last question, can you save tasks and set alarms to them?

HTC EVO 4G :: Calendar Reminders

Jun 11, 2010

I have my Google calendars set up to default to no reminder when I enter a new event.

But on the EVO, I can't figure out how to do that. When I enter a new event there is an option to set the reminder as "none" for that event. But under calendar settings, "none" is not listed as one of the options for the default reminder time - there's nothing above 5 minutes on the drop-down list.

Anyone know if there's any way to do this? I just can't believe it's not an option and that I have to manually delete the reminder for every single event I enter into the calendar...

HTC Hero :: Not Getting Calendar Reminders

Sep 24, 2009

I sync my HTC Hero with Outlook, but I can't get any reminders for any appointments. All events in Outlook have a 15 minute reminder and this also seems to be the case when viewing event details on the Hero, but alas! no reminders

My settings:

Calendar->Menu->Settings->Reminders->Reminder display : Show as alert (also tried "Show in notification bar")
Calendar->Menu->Settings->Reminders->All Calendars : checked

If I uncheck "All calendars" and chose Outlook in the "Apply settings to" it doesn't save my choice. The next time I go to the settings it has reverted back to "My Calendar".

Apr 16, 2010

There was this really cool app on s60 called "best reminder" - which every time you got a text you coud tell it to keep giving audio and vibrate notifications every X number of minutes till you acknowleged the alert
very handy if you missed the original alert sound with SMS popup on android you can do just that for sms alerts BUT is there an app that will do this with all notifications - not just sms but twitter alerts email alerts etc?

HTC Hero :: Calendar Reminders

Sep 11, 2009

We have a lot of all-day events in our Google Calendar, which we want a *visual* reminder of.. but have no desire to be woken in the middle of the night by an *audible* alarm reminder.

I must be missing something so simple - but how do we turn the Calendar alarm off for these, or at least prevent it from sounding in the hours of darkness?

Android :: Calendar Reminders That Will Keep Beeping

Jan 28, 2010

My old phone had a calendar app that you could set the reminder BEFORE the event (i.e. 5', 10', etc) and then it would keep reminding you every 5 minutes AFTER the event until you picked up the phone and checked it.

To me that kind of reminder is very useful since you could have the phone in another area and not hear the initial reminder. You pick up the phone an hour later and the reminder is still there, physically on the screen and beeping. You can't miss it.

My new phone (Mytouch) will only remind you BEFORE the event. If I miss the reminder, I am out of luck. It doesn't beep anymore. It does nothing else. It will stay on the screen, but that's it. But then you have to physically check the phone all the time.

I'm looking for a reminder that will keep beeping (5' or so) to tell me that there is something there. i.e. Calendar, email, etc.

HTC Hero :: Dismiss Calendar Reminders

Jan 17, 2010

Unlike some people, calendar reminders work fine for me in that the phone lights up and makes noise when a reminder/event is due, however, unless I get to the phone within 10 seconds of the reminder the screen goes off, turning the screen back on there is nothing about the reminder so I can't dismiss it.

10 minutes later (or whatever the timing is) the reminder will go off again, and once again if I don't get to the phone before the screen goes off I can't dismiss it... this can go on for hours if I'm doing things around the house or office and don't have the phone on my person.

Is there a way to dismiss the reminder other than sliding down the "reminder lock screen"? Modifying the event to remove the reminder after it has "fired" once doesn't seem to do anything... Very occasionally there will be a calender reminder item in my notifications and I can dismiss it from there... but that only seems to happen once a month! The rest of the time there's nothing aboutthe reminder.

HTC EVO 4G :: Exchange Activesync - Calendar Reminders

Jun 5, 2010

I've set up Exchange Activesync on my Evo, and the calendar seems to sync fine. However, I'm not getting any reminders in my status bar even though they are enabled on the calendar settings.

Further, if I go into an appointment that has a reminder set on it, I get the following message:

Delete
Are you sure you want to delete this reminder?

If I hit cancel and then back out of the event, it seems to re-save the calendar event, but I still don't get any reminders.

HTC Desire :: Calendar Reminders - Dismiss Disappearing

May 7, 2010

Is there any way to get back to the "Snooze all/Dismiss all" screen for calendar notifications? I've been having major issues with my reminders disappearing before I can dismiss them or after I snooze them. To see what I'm talking about - set an alarm via your calendar (Google, in my case) and try to keep the phone "awake". That screen that pops up will show snooze or dismiss all buttons.

The reason why I need that screen (or at least a consistent way to dismiss the reminders) is because sometimes, odd things happen. For instance, if the reminder goes off and I pull the phone out of my pants quickly, it disappears. I don't know if it dismissed or snoozed. Often, it snoozes because it will ring again. At other times, it will play the notification, but give me no way to dismiss it. I have to power down in order to get it to stop. Talk about frustrating. When it powers back up, the notification shows in the status bar. Then, there are times when it simply vibrates once... repeatedly, but at what seems like five minute intervals. I'll feel it go off, but when I take it out, the phone has no status bar notification.

This is REALLY frustrating because my phone is my lifeline - I teach school and it reminds me when classes start and end. However, I'm a bit skittish now because I go into panic mode when it doesn't quiet or it keeps notifying me.

I have Pure Calendar Widget and Calendar Pad Pro running. Could these be causing any kind of conflict? I really like both of them because the native calendars suck. However, I am willing to let go of Cal Pad Pro if worse comes to worse.

HTC Desire :: Outlook 2003 Calendar Reminders

Nov 16, 2010

Every time I sync my new HTC Desire to my Outlook 2003 using HTCSync V 3.0.5422, I come up with over 300 reminders on the PC which date back to almost a year ago. I've tried dismissing them in Outlook - they go away - until next time I sync.

I tried downloading the latest version of HTCSync, but that caused the whole sync process to hang - had to uninstall it and load the version that came on the phone.

HTC Incredible :: Google Calendar Reminders Do Not Sync Correctly

Oct 21, 2010

I'm having problems with Google Calendar not syncing event reminders correctly. I am wondering if it is just me or is there a glitch with Google.

When I set up a 1 time event on Google Calendar online (not on the DInc) and set a reminder, it sync's the reminder correctly to the HTC Droid Calendar. But if I set up a reminder on a recurring event, the recurring event syncs to HTC Droid Calendar, but the reminder is deleted on the phone.

When I use Google Calendar Sync to sync with Outlook 2007, with some events the reminders will sync correctly and others the reminder will be deleted on Outlook. Some recurring events sync the reminder, some do not.

HTC Droid Eris :: Dismiss Appointment Reminders With One Swipe

2.1 seems to have changed the way reminders are presented. Back on 1.5 if I had a reminder set at 30 minutes it would chirp and place an indicator in the notification curtain where I could dismiss the reminder with one swipe. Now with 2.1 I'm getting repeatedly notified every 5 minutes until the appointment starts and there is no noticeable way to make it stop. I swear I saw a setting for that somewhere but I'll be darned if if I can find it again.

Right now, if I'm in a meeting or something and I snooze it, it keeps chiming every 5 minutes and gets annoying to the point where I have to dismiss it. Then I run the risk of forgetting it.

I had an app on my Pre called Geostrings that did location-based reminders, and it was really handy. I see a few out on the Android market, anyone have one they use that they could recommend? Ideally it would work with the GPS off and just use cell towers for location if necessary, since I tend to leave my GPS off unless I need it to conserve battery, and may forget to turn it on when I have an alarm enabled. I tried "Location Alarm", but it may require the GPS, because I got no alarm with it at all, then later realized I had the GPS off.

HTC EVO 4G :: Froyo / Tapping Event To View Details Wiping Out All Reminders

Aug 3, 2010

I use Google Calendar to organize my life, and rely on the email reminders to keep me from forgetting events and to know when to act on them. With 2.1 I had no issues, Google Calendar was synced to the stock HTC calendar app on EVO. I had the calendar set to view in "agenda" mode. Now since updating to Froyo, when I open the calendar app in agenda mode, the events have bell icons to the right of them, this is new. If I tap the event to open it and view the details of the event, when I return to the main agenda viewing mode of the calendar the bell is gone.

The phone then syncs with Google Calendar, and deletes all of the scheduled Email Reminders that I have set up for the event. This was not a problem with 2.1. No bells showed to the right of the events in agenda mode, and I could tap into the event to view the details without deleting email reminders on Google Calendar. With Froyo, by simply tapping the event to view the details it is effectively wiping out all reminders, rendering the calendar useless. This making me wish I had never updated to Froyo. The calendar and reminders are the single most important function on my phone, and with Froyo it seems to be incredibly flawed.

Android :: Calendar Removing Items/reminders From Phone When Syncing

Jun 3, 2010

I am having problems that when I manually or automatically sync my Gmail/Google calendar from my phone or - items and/or reminders are disappearing.

For instance, I am viewing my Gmail calendar and US Holidays Calendar in the Calendars view - I turned off/unchecked "My Calendar" and "PC Sync" calendar. I can add a reminder or two to father's day - which is June 20th and when I go back or press home I see it has saved the reminder and added a picture of a bell to the entry in my Agenda view. The reminder is there when I double check it.

But when I manually sync the calendar up with Google/Gmail sync in Accounts & sync OR let the Calendar automatically sync the alert will be taken off father's day.

I have had this problem with Events too... I will add a new event, it shows up and saves but I noticed it has disappeared from the Calendar after the sync has taken place.

Anyone else experiencing this? I looked at my Gmail/Calendar settings on the phone and Gmail online and can't find anything.

I have the HTC Incredible with Android 2.1.

Android :: Activities And Tasks ?

Jul 3, 2009

I had a question regarding this concept. Suppose i have an application that defines a task. This task has some activities that belong to another Android application. The Dev guide says, that to maintain a uniform user experience, Android will maintain such 'distributed' activities as part of the same 'task' even if they belong to different applications.

I refer to it from here: http://developer.android.com/guide/topics/fundamentals.html

Some lines later, the Dev guide says and i quote: * * *"**Suppose, for instance, that the current task has four activities in its stack — three under the current activity. The user presses the HOME key, goes to the application launcher, and selects a new application (actually, a new task). The current task goes into the background and the root activity for the new task is displayed. The current task goes into the background and the root activity for the new task is displayed. Then, after a short period, the user goes back to the home screen and again selects the previous application (the previous task). That task, with all four activities in the stack, comes forward. When the user presses the BACK key, the screen does not display the activity the user just left (the root activity of the previous task). Rather, the activity on the top of the stack is removed and the previous activity in the same task is displayed."*

I think "three under the current activity" should be "four under the same task".

I think this paragraph i quote above has nothing to do with activities distributed across applications..and belonging to the same task. This para is maybe talking about two applications, that share a common application launcher and each application has defined its own tasks (stack of activities).

The user is simply toggling from one application to another, thus demonstrating that all activities (of a task) move together. However, the "three under the current activity" phrase is confusing me.
