Exactly what Reminders is missing - Feels weird that this kind of functionality isn't already baked-in to Apple's Reminders app... so this utility fits right in and feels natural. It ain't the prettiest thing to look at, but it does exactly what it needs to, quickly and elegantly, and then gets out of the way. Oh... and the price is right! I'd love to see a visual refresh in a future release... maybe something with Alfred style transparency... but I'm just being nitpicky. Great app. Very helpful!

Remind Me WILL NOT OPEN IN YOSEMITE!! - I just installed Remind Me, because the reviews suggested that this simple utility works perfectly to make it possible to add a Due Date (in addition to the Reminder Date) to Reminders, which the Apple people for some unfathomable reason decided was no longer necessary, altho it still exists and is hidden in current versions of OSX. (There is no preference to unhide it.) I’m running OSX 10.10.5 on a recent model Macbook Pro. Unfortunately, Remind Me WILL NOT OPEN. I’ve tried every way imaginable: from the Applicaitons Folder (of course), from the Dock, from the App Store page, from Launchpad. Nothing works. The computer thinks that the app is opened, because when I tried to delete it to re-install, I got a “Cannot delete, app is open”) message, altho the Dock icon does NOT show that is is opened, and nothing appears on the app bar at the top of the page. So, I restarted the computer (which did “close” the app), and deleted and re-installed it. No help, the exact same thing happens. So, apparently, Remind Me has not been updated to work with Yosemite. Too bad, it sounded like an easy fix to a self-inflicted wound by Apple. But at the moment, it’s worthless. Hopefully somebody from High Order Bit will read this and fix the problem. I’ll be happy to revise my 1-star rating as soon as it works.

Finally!! Perfect! - This is just what I’ve been looking for! Finally an app that lets me use Apple Reminders and quickly use Due Dates without a reminder! I love it! 5 stars! I agree, Apple needs to pay this guy to incorporate this into an official update for the Reminders app.

Apple needs to pay this guy - This is a feature that should be STANDARD in OS X. I can’t give this any higher compliment. This is essentially a missing feature of the Reminders app. Bravo! Well done. Now, Apple, give this guy some money, hire him, whatever, and get it in 10.10.2.

No Reminder List - It’s fine for creating a quick reminder, though I’d pay for a version that gave me access to a simple list of all my reminders.

Review by what8ever

Due dates, yes…repeat MIA - Apple’s Reminder app is strange in that sometimes one gets the option to set a “due date”, which is different from setting a “remind” date. This Remind Me companion app to Reminders has both option and works well. I do wish the ability to set repeat. For now, I go back to Reminders to add that.

Can't Open with Yosemite - Regardless of the recent upgrade, I cannot open with Yosemite. If this is the same “Remind Me" app I had with my old PC, it's a shame, because I loved it.
