Type "Make dinner reservation at 9am tomorrow" and your reminder is set for 9 AM tomorrow.

"Cancel subscription in 1 month" and you get a buzz a month later.

Just tell Due in your own words what you'd like to do, and when you'd like to be reminded.*

There are no awkward date pickers to fight with, nor rigid date and time format to follow.

Your reminder is set as soon as you're done typing.

Due makes sure things actually get done by keeping you on your toes, sending you periodic reminders until you actually mark the reminders complete.

The super-fast reminder app on your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch—now on your Mac.

* Natural date and time parsing available for non-recurring reminders only.


- Fast. Really fast.
Reminders are set as soon as you finish typing what to do, and when to do it.

- Natural date and time parsing
No awkward date pickers nor rigid date and time format to follow. Set due date and time by typing what is natural to you.*

"4pm" works just as fine as "4:00 PM" or "16:00", and "Aug 22" works as well as "22 August" or "8/22". Relative dates like "in 20 mins" or "in 6 months" work too.

Some examples:

- "Collect passport next Monday 4pm"
- "Make dinner reservation at 14:00 tomorrow"
- "Cancel subscription in 1 month"
- "Wish Sally happy birthday on Aug 22 at 8 AM"
- "Phone contract expires May 30 2014"

- Never miss any reminders with Auto snooze
Due repeatedly notifies you of missed reminders until they are marked done or rescheduled, making sure things get done and your list never go stale.

- Fully optimized for keyboard-only operation
Power users can skip the mouse and trackpad. Show or hide Due, create reminders, reschedule them, mark them complete, delete them. Everything you need is a keyboard shortcut away.

- Reusable countdown timers
Precise to the second, they are perfect for timing your coffee, tea and eggs. Set them up once and reuse them forever.

- Powerful recurring reminders
Vitamins before bed each night? Pay rent every 2 weeks on Monday? Submit a report on the last weekday of the month? Yup.

- Keep reminders in sync across your Mac, iPhone and iPad
Due supports sync through iCloud or Dropbox. Create a reminder on your Mac and it will be there on your iPhone and iPad.**

**Sync on iOS requires Due for iOS (sold separately). With Due for iOS 2.0, your iPhone and iPad can sync in the background using Dropbox or iCloud.

- Search and Create
Search your reminders and timers. And if you don't find what you want, press Return to create a reminder with your search term.

- Drag and drop to create reminders
Create reminders by dragging emails, calendar events, text, links and more to Due.

- Share reminders with drag and drop, or copy and paste
Send your friend a reminder via Mail, Messages or Twitter by dragging or copying it. It even comes with a link so that he can add that reminder to his own copy of Due.

- Optional Menu Bar, dockless operation
Run Due directly from your menu bar, badge it with unattended alerts, and take Due off your Dock if you like.

- Assignable alert sounds
Assign distinctive alert sound for each reminder; louder and longer ones for important reminders, and subtler ones for less critical reminders.

- Undo and Redo

- Take control of your notifications
Customize how notifications behave—whether they display a notification, play a sound, bounces the icon or highlights the icon in the menu bar—when reminders and timers become due.


Requires Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks or later.

Menu bar option is much appreciated - Excellent update. Now I can set it to run in the menu bar only without clogging up my dock. Can't wait for 10.8 to come out so I can check out the NC settings.

Not syncing with Reminders - Am I missing something? THis app gets great reviews but I can't get it to do much of anything. When the promo says it syncs with "reminders" (lower case r), does that refer only to reminders that are created in Due? I can't get it to sync with my "Reminders" (the Mac OS app). Shouldn't it? If Due only syncs with itself, then I don't need it. Also, when I create a reminder in Due, if I type "do something tomorrow", the reminder says "do something tomorrow" and it is due today. I thought it was supposed to say "do something" and be due tomorrow. FWIW, I have the same problem with the Reminders app, but Fantastical does it right. I'm using the latest OSX 10.8.2 on a brand new MacBook Pro Retina. Bill

Exceptional Application - This is an amazing piece of software. If you are like me … you have struggled to keep track of all the things you need to do (tasks), all the things you need to remember (reminders), and all the places you need to be (appointments). I have never liked putting reminders in my calendar or task manager, because they simply clutter up the important stuff. What to do about the simple, niggling reminders? Due works perfectly for me. The “secret sauce” is the auto-snooze feature. You can quickly set up reminders (they can be recurring) and set different auto-snooze intervals. For example, I need to remember to take the garbage and recycling out on Wednesday nights. I set up a “ping” at 6pm every Wednesday. If I can’t take care of it at that moment, no problem. Due will simply ping me again in an hour. Once the garbage is out … one swipe and Due is ready to do it again next week. If you have a more time-critical reminder … Concert Tickets going on sale at a certain time, for example … you can set the auto-snooze for 5 minutes. In short, this is a handy little app that easily incorporates into my “workflow” and actually delivers.

Version 1.5
Review by Thermophile

Excellent simple application - I have been using Due since it was first introduced and have it on all of my Apple devices. While there are both timers and reminders, I now use the reminders almost exclusively (Syri and Alexa are much quicker). I really use the repetitive reminders which can be set for any period. For example, I have a reminder set to “clean the cat box”, for which the cats are eternally grateful. That reminder resets for two days after completion. That means that once I have completed the task, it will reset for two days hence. I have other reminders to pay bills that reset for a particular day of the month. The notifications appear on all the devices and the synch is quick and simple. It is easy to use and it works.

Review by drober30

This App I can’t live without! - There are two apps that make my personal life and business life a whole lot better and less stressful and Due is one of them! I write this review as a thank you to the developer for releasing the update that many of us Due users were eagerly awaiting! I have been using the other app, eWallet, for 20 years (yes, I was using smart phones before the greater population heard the term smart phone… AT&T MPX200, iPac, Palm Pilot) I have been using Due for about a year. I was using other reminder systems prior but in a forum, I participate in, someone recommended Due and I took the plunge. Due turned out to be an excellent app and just what I needed/wanted! There was some issues with the syncing using iCloud in the previous version; however, the app is rock solid with the new update and the iCloud syncing works perfectly (To be fair Apple previously had limitation on the iCloud feature for developers but released an iCloud API and that was used in this update) Due has a Desktop version too and works great with Apple Watch! The developer stated he will now focus on updating the UI to make it more attractive, which will be nice, but functionality had to come first and that has been accomplished. Love Due!
