It seems like Apple's reminders app was made by a surly teenager who would rather have watched YouTube videos than being coded that afternoon. It just gives the least of everything.
Our hypothetical youth developer obviously never needs to be reminded of anything, because you enter something as clear as a task with a due date, taking four cranes at different locations on the screen to get to the date picker. And remember that this is a reminder app whose purpose is to remind you of things. Imagine a text editor where you have to press each letter key several times to type that letter.
Fortunately, you can choose from a zillion other iOS reminder apps, and everyone uses the same central reminder lists you already use. Today we see how to insert a reminder way, faster than with Apple's built-in disgust. Today we are going to check out how to use Memento.
Memento solves reminders on iOS
First, here are some of the things that do not work well – or at all – in stock Apple Reminders app:  Add a task takes too long.
Memento is my current favorite reminder app.
Make a reminder fort
The test of some reminders, app, is how easy it is to make a reminder. If it's not easy and fast, you won't use it. Memento makes simple reminders here. Just click the + button next to the list you want to use, and type the name of the reminder.
To add a moment, just press the Time Alert button, which is always at the bottom left corner of the iPad and tap one of the notification settings.
And here we come to the best part of Memento. You can create your own presets and add them to a single-tap reminder. For example, I use buttons labeled "This Afternoon" and "5 Minutes", which allow me to set these times with just one touch.
Adding a location alert is just as easy. Press Location button when creating or viewing a reminder, and you can quickly set your current location with just one touch.
The other half of a reminder app is their alerts. You can customize these to show different buttons to act on a reminder. The default settings are a complete button and a short snooze. But you can add snoozer for a certain amount of time. You can also add buttons to show you notes on the reminder, or to visit a site that is linked to the reminder.
This last is a bit odd. I can't train exactly what is being recognized as a "website". If I just add a URL to the note field, the app doesn't recognize it. However, you can tap an alert to view your notes and tap the active URL in the note panel to start that link.
If you add a reminder from Safari, using the built-in sharing extension, you'll see the Visitor Web Page button in Memento's alerts.
Other nice tricks
The strength of Memento is its speed and ease of use. The timer buttons, for example, always appear in the same location. It allows you to quickly flow through adding reminders without having to dither around for the correct button, as in Apple's app.
If you have a keyboard connection, it's even easier. You can create reminders next to that hit ⌘N . And if you are already editing a reminder, enters a new one.
You can also 3D Touch the app icon to create reminders. And you can add a widget to today's view. But for the most part, Memento is worth using because it's so much better at basics than Apple's version.
