This app is probably the most used in my productivity portfolio. I use it for anything that I MUST do: take meds, call someone, check on something at work. It is so effective because it does one thing better than any other app I’ve ever found: it bugs the you-know-what out of you until you get something done. For example: I take medicine every day at lunch. But my lunch time varies, anytime between 11-1. I have a reminded set here for 11, and it reminds me again and again (based on an interval I select) until I mark it completed. So, at 11, it dings me. If I ignore it, or don’t hear it, or don’t have my phone on me, it will ding me again, and again, and again, until I mark it complete. This is the behavior I need. An app that reminds me once and then ends up in notifications is useless to me; I need constant reminding until I have the time and focus to mark it done. This will be the best $5 you spend in the App Store. I’ve been using it for years now, and, as I said in my review title, it’s indispensable.
This app is basically almost perfect. I’ve been designing consumer product user interfaces for 35 years - and whenbthe iPhone first came out and first batch of “to do” apps came out they all frustrated me like crazy. I would check once a year and still be disappointed by all of them. Then about a year ago I discovered Due and I’ve been using it every day completely seamlessly since ... sorry it has taken me forever to write this review. I don’t want to reiterate the key features and benefits - those are described very well by Due - I just to add that it is rock solid, reliable, fast performing, and completely intuitive UI that uses the available screen real estate to minimize the conceptual and mechanical complexity of using all the most common features. I use this app as a teaching example in excellent UX and UI design and to use as positive model in teaching task analysis. Bravo team Due!!!
Review #5 Great app, but now the app has new problems caused by the recent IOS updates. The MAX number of times that I can be reminded is now 10 times which is not enough. I often miss those alerts because I am away from my phone. Additionally the app shows a number next to the app’s icon. Mine shows a 7, but I only have 1 past due alert. I guess the other 6 alerts are for the future alerts. That simply does not make any sense. So I have completely stopped using the app. I am now using only the calendar app in IOS. Review #4 on Due. This is probably my fourth review on Due. I use it all the time and it's simply the best reminder system that I've ever found. review #3 Over the years this app has been enhanced and improved. The current edition is spectacular. It easily handles any number of reminders. I can even assign the unique sounds. On various occasions I've emailed the developer asking for feature requests. Every one of them have been added. I can imagine that other users were clamouring for the same additions. Look no further, because this is a must have reminder system. High credit is due this developer! This is my most used app. Thanks.
This app has changed my life completely! I was diagnosed with ADHD back when I was 5. I’m now 26 and in the past few years I’ve been learning a lot about my disorder. Learning things like how to remember to complete tasks on time and how to prioritize them. I’m not gonna lie, I sucked at remembering anything no matter what I did. Hence, having ADHD. Though, since I downloaded the Due app, everything’s changed. It’s like your own personal assistant hired only to remind you repeatedly of your daily tasks and to keep you on track. It’s default setting is to remind you every 5 minutes of a task you need to complete/start and it won’t stop reminding you until you act on the notification. Example: I set the app to remind me to upload pictures of our new employees to our website. When it reminded me I was out grabbing lunch so I tapped the “+30 min” option so it would remind me again in 30 minutes. Then when I got back from lunch it reminded me again but I was busy talking to a co-worker at the moment. So then 5 minutes later it reminded me again and I had to tell the co-worker I needed to go work on something. When I was uploading the pictures it reminded me once again but this time I tapped the “Mark Done” option. I know it seems like it would get really annoying but if you’re a person who’s really forgetful, this app will change your life! Highly recommended!!!
Due helps me focus on the important things when I am innundated with many things to take care of in a typical week. There is an interesting effect about writing down what to do and being reminded of it again and again as I sometimes end up not feeling like doing it. I may choose to delay it by an hour, three hours, or a day, but I actually end up doing the task eventually more than likely (I began to think more seriously about the power and benefits of writing down long-term goals and recite it every morning, too). Another huge takeaway from Due is its elegant design and intuitive UI and UX. I make a living as a programmer and often feel challenged or lost when trying to keep the UI clean and simple (Yes, I have enormous respect for those UI and UX designers who make this internet-driven, device-saturated 21st century a better, more livable place). I find Due a highly inspirational app especially for programmers.
Due remembers all the things that you need so you don't have to.
Because it repeatedly reminds you of things until you act on them, it‘s impossible to forget anything.
