Natural Reminders app is designed to simulate the way our brains set and remember tasks. We keep forgetting for many reasons, and it is so common that you can find a lot of different solutions that are meant to help people. There are rough to-do lists on scraps of paper as well as sophisticated project management tools.
However, these solutions often require a lot of self-discipline, which is not always easy to achieve in stressful situations. Some of them are not adapted to the needs of individual users, which makes them less effective and does not help in performing tasks.
Why is NR different?
What makes Natural Reminders so unique is that it is based on psychological knowledge. It combines science and technology to help people more effectively in a simple way.
NR is designed for people who tend to forget their daily tasks a bit too often. The application makes it not only easy to set tasks but also automates timely reminders. Download NR
Think of what could happen if you forget to:
* Lock the back door or window, turn-off the cooker or bath tap or iron before leaving home
* Got to the airport without your passport
* Forgot to pass that an essential message to your colleague or boss
Many reasons lead to such forgetfulness. They are mainly:
Using NR is really easy. Click a button, enter the task and define when you'd like to do it. You can also decide how you want to be reminded about the task.
Select one of the sixteen buttons to start entering the task. You don't have to worry about the bottom buttons such as SP and EP. These are advanced features for research purposes.
Enter what you have to do, and when does it need to be done. You can also speak to the app. Remember to do it slowly! NR will automatically schedule the tasks in time order.
You can choose whether you want to be reminded just in time about the task, or in advance. You can also customize the playback, to prevent voice notifications when you need privacy.
Natural Reminders imitates the way we remember tasks.
The branch of psychology that studies the way we set and remember tasks is known as Prospective Memory (PM). NR's design is based on the principles of PM. Use NR regularly to exercise your PM "muscles"! As long as you have NR on your smartphone, you can set tasks whenever they pop up into your mind.
NR comes with an option to register for My-Memory subscription. It gives you access to your full task history, so can measure your progress. Exercising your PM muscles and regularly checking your results should help you remember tasks the natural way!
If you have a good internet connection, you can set the task and the time to do it by speaking to the app!
Avoid this option if you want privacy, as when you are in a public place.
The app will tell you about the tasks using spoken words. You can always turn it off if you need privacy.
You can set the reminder to notify you only when the task needs to be done. You can also use NR's powerful popup pre-minders to notify you sufficiently in advance if that is more appropriate.
The tasks you have set will be automatically ordered in the order of the times you have set for these.
On the expiry of the time set for a task, the task moves automatically to an Overdue list, making space for entering a new task on the main screen.
You can customize the reminders for tasks that are overdue and until you mark them as completed (or cancelled).
For hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, 3-monthly, 6, monthly & 12-monthly tasks.
Prevents against 'weak-spot' forgetting: those things we do not have fixed time to do but can anytime (this afternoon, after work, before going to bed, and so on.
Select any vacant button, enter the task, and set the time do it using the built-in clock. Alternatively, you can set these by speaking to the app, as mentioned earlier.
Click any button for which a task has been set, review the details and make any changes if needed.
This is a research button! When something you see, hear, smell, taste or touch makes you remember a task, touch EP button. If you still haven't done the task and later see something that reminds of it, touch EP again. Do it repeatedly until the task is done.
Another research button If you remember the task spontaneously without any external trigger (without seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting or touching something that reminds you), tap SP. Each time you become aware that you remember it on your own then tap SP, until the task is done.
Register for the My-Memory subscription and use NR regularly. Remember about those EP and SP buttons! Soon you will begin to get a lot of insights into your own memory performance!
