There's nothing worse than that feeling when you realize you've forgotten something important. Maybe you left an assignment sitting on your desk at home, or forgot to log out of your accounts on the shared family computer.
A new app called B4iGo wants to make sure you never leave without feeding the cat again by being as annoying as possible so you can't possibly forget. It lets you set alerts for important tasks and reminds you of them every time you pick up your phone to use it.
It lets you save multiple reminders and choose a custom notification or even record your own voice or sounds. The app senses the movement when you pick up your phone, then displays the reminder you choose.
When a reminder pops up, you can dismiss it by tapping Stop or see the rest of the message by tapping Show. Check out the video to see how it works.
If being reminded every time you touch your phone sounds like overkill, you can also use Apple's stock Reminders app to set time- or location-based notifications. Once you've created a reminder, tap on it to open up the settings, then tap Remind Me and select the date, time, or location you'd like it to send you a push notification.
But, if you're like me, you set reminders, then dismiss them and promptly forget about them as soon as they go off, so B4iGo might be a better bet for those who are forgetful or like to procrastinate. You can download the limited free version or pay $1.99 for the full one.
