NR: A New Kind of Task Reminder


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:

Busy work load/too many things to do

Work or Family Related Stress

The normal effects of ageing

Medical issues that affect memory such as dementia or a head injury

Difficulty to focus or concentrate

Remember Tasks with Natural Reminders

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.


Click a Button

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 the task and time

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.


Customize settings

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.

Remember Tasks the Natural Way

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!

Benefits and features

Speak to the app, instead of Typing

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.

Voice alerts to remind about your tasks

The app will tell you about the tasks using spoken words. You can always turn it off if you need privacy.

Set reminder playbacks to be just in time, or in advance

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.

Automatic scheduling in time order

The tasks you have set will be automatically ordered in the order of the times you have set for these.

Undone tasks move automatically to an overdue list

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.

A replay of overdue tasks

You can customize the reminders for tasks that are overdue and until you mark them as completed (or cancelled).

Repeat for regularly occurring tasks

For hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, 3-monthly, 6, monthly & 12-monthly tasks.

Random repeat for no-fixed-time 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.

When a task pops into your mind

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.

Review and edit

Click any button for which a task has been set, review the details and make any changes if needed.

That EP Button!

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.

And the SP Button!

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.

Improve Your Natural Memory!


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!

If you’d like to check if your or your loved one’s symptoms may be a sign of dementia, take a free test. It will help you to verify if your health is fine and you are just forgetful or should visit a specialist.
