The concept of reminders is common to all mobile platforms; you will find some way of setting up reminders on any phone, no matter how new or old. Smartphones take the usefulness of reminders to a whole new level, one example of which is the Reminders app in the latest version of iOS. Looking at that stock iOS 5, app you might think that it cannot be bested, but Later might make you change your opinion on that matter. The app focuses on letting users set reminders as easily and quickly as possible. Apart from letting you create reminders, this iPhone app also gives provides with an added incentive to accomplish their tasks by unlocking achievements whenever a specific number of reminders have been marked as done.
Later displays a brief overview of the app’s usage when you launch it for the first time. There are a few example reminders set in the app’s list. Their descriptions showcase different areas of Later. To create a new reminder, tap the Add New button present at the bottom of the screen. Unlike other reminder apps, Later provides you with a very different way of choosing the exact time of a reminder. Although there is the option to set exact time, for casual usage, you can choose from a collection of built-in presets, like Tonight and Tomorrow to save time where you can. The best thing about these presets is that they come with a defined time, which you can later make minor changes to. This saves you from the hassle of having to select the exact time up to seconds.
If, at a later time, you want to edit a reminder, doing so easy; simply tap the reminder to bring up its quick edit menu. The achievements section can be accessed by tapping the button in the top-left corner of the app’s homescreen. From Later’s settings menu, you can choose one of the three alarm tones that the app comes packed with, and define the time that defines Morning, Noon and Night within the app. The Time Stepping option lets you define the amount of minutes by which Later lets you increment the time within the quick edit menu.
Later is a simple reminders app, but the efficient and quick way in which it works is what makes it stand out from other apps of its kind, and for that, it is certainly worth a download.
