I discovered this app this morning thanks to Daring Fireball’s John Gruber. It’s called “Due” and it lets you enter quick reminders for stuff you don’t want to forget about. Walk the dog in 30 minutes. Call your boss after lunch. Check on MacStories giveaway announcement in 5 hours. That kind of stuff.
It’s really simple: once you enter a new item you can choose a due date & time, but there are some handy shortcuts in the same screen. If you find yourself constantly using some reminders as countdowns, you can create a timer.
That’s it. The interface is clean and polished, and the app doesn’t even need an internet connection to work as it’s based on iOS 4’s local notification system.
$2.99 in the App Store. If you need an app to send you reminders on a daily basis, give Due a shot.
