Introduction
Often forgetting to do or get something? You need quick memo or reminder without the hustle? Try "Memo reminders".

How does it work?
"Memo reminders" creates Android notifications which can be seen in notification drawer. Easily accessible, always there.
Specially with Android 5 where notifications are also shown on the lock-screen, you will see you quick memos or reminders every time when you check your phone.
Don't want them on the lock screen? No worries, there is option for that.

Get it on Google Play

Perfect for making quick grocery list before going to shop.
Just swipe it away when done.

Personally I'm using it mostly for creating grocery list before going to shop or to remind myself to do something during day/s when I will time.

I also made Chrome Extension that replaces your new tab page where can create reminders and you will see them each time you open new tab.

And there are widgets to make your new tab page more useful. You can get it from the Chrome Web Store.
Get it on Chrome Web Store


Features
  • Highly customizable: set icon, short text, add longer description if needed
  • Show reminders only when unlocked
  • Keeps history of your memo reminders
  • No ads
  • Nice and clean design (I think)
  • Add actions on reminders - Customize the action when you tap on the notification. You can set the action to dial number, prepare SMS text or email someone, navigate to your destination, open website if you need to book tickets, launch application(ex. launch Camera app for #SelfieOfTheDay)… you name it!

Not enough space for description? Use Emojis!
Saves you time and effort.

"Read contacts" permission is added to prevent crashing when picking contacts on some Sony and HTC devices.
No personal information is collected.

First of all:
This app is simple and powerful, yet still manages to be beautiful at the same time.

I suppose it wasn't intended for this, but would it be possible to include a Time-Date/Location reminder?

Otherwise this app is perfect for me and I already use it very often, that reminder thing is the only thing that prevents me to completely switch from Google Keep

Keep up the good work

One issue I noticed, when I attempt to setup a reminder to call a contact it crashes the app. I can successfully setup a call to a number manually imputed,though. I am using an HTC one m7 unrooted.

**Edit: it appears Any request to connect to the address book crashes the app... I just got the same result from setting a message to be sent from a contact.

Also, one suggestion : I'd love to see the option to only show the shortcut in the statusbar (without being on the lockscreen). I think clutter on the lockscreen in Android 5 is a real problem for a lot of people.

Thank you for the great app and taking the time to read my suggestion. 😀

This is a beaitful material-based app with an awesome functionality. Everything works just fine.

One question: is it normal or desired that if you unlock the phone the reminders "jump" under the notifications?

Nevertheless awesome app

@drashko

Great idea and beautifully simplistic.

Ideas for consideration:
- Repeat reminder on a set day(s)
- Reminder during set hours

Scheduling reminders is planned to be added in future, about the location, I'll consider it. General idea for the application is to be very simple to use.

I agree about the shortcut, that is great idea, thanks.
For some reason, READ_CONTACTS permission is needed on your device and that is crashing the application. I'll look into.

Thanks, I'm glad you like it.
If you set personal reminders, it is normal because they are readded on unlock.

Cool ideas. As I mentioned above, scheduling reminders is on my to-do list and will think about them.
Thanks.


Big thanks to @GermainZ for spreading the word, I appreciate it!

I'm gonna use this on my note 5 and use it as one of my "air command" apps

This is an essential tool.
It is simple and effective.
I like how you can change the icon for the reminder so it shows on top screen to jog your memory with a simple glance.
If you can support split screen for Samsung note devices it would be awesome. No need tho.
I wouldnt be surprised if samsung, apple, Google come knocking on your door.
Awesome job 👍👍👍
