Due isn’t a to-do app for the iPhone, it’s a reminder app for the iPhone. Due exists for one reason: to politely pester you into performing a task that must not be overlooked. I’ve been using it for several weeks now, and am quite smitten.
Here are three reasons to use Due for iPhone.
- It nags. That’s a good thing. Many reminder/to-do apps will present a message when your task is due. Most won’t return after its dismissed, whether the protect is complete or not. Due keeps presenting that message until you go into the app and mark it as done. You’ve also got the option to snooze an event, so that Due will bug you about it at a specific time.
- Repeating timers. Is there a timed task that you must preform regularly? Set it as recurring and run that timer over and over with the flip of a switch.
- Customizable preset timings. Not that scrolling through the time wheel UI is difficult, but this is even easier. You can create up to four one-tap time settings (8:45 AM for example) that you use often. That’s a very thoughtful feature.
There’s more, of course, and you can read the full feature set here. For a fast, simple and — most importantly — reliable way to be prompted to complete the little things, you can’t do better than Due.
