How to organize your life using Reminders

Setting basic remindersIOS_0.5

Reminders works with a simple interface of folders and notes. Each folder you create gives you the options to create a list, using the + button, and then a tick function once the task has been completed. You can also choose to ‘show’ completed reminders or ‘hide.’

Edit the time and location settings

Sometimes you’ll want to change or add a specific time that your reminders will do just that – remind you! To add a time click the ‘i’ next to the reminder, add a time day and change the priority to a level you need. It will add a visual cue to your reminder in the form of exclamation marks.


Use Siri to set reminders

Siri is an easy way to create reminders on your watch, iPhone and now, with the update to Mac OS (Sierra) you can use Siri on your Macbook, too. Just say, “Hey Siri.

Using Siri Search / Spotlight on your iPad

When I search my iPad, I am usually only looking for apps, such as CONTACTS. In IOS 10, I had turned off the other searches so only apps came up when I did a search.
