Think of what could happen if you forget to:
* Lock the back door/window, turn-off the cooker or bath tap or iron before leaving home
* Got to the airport without your passport
* Forgot to pass that vital message to your colleague or boss!
There are many reasons that lead to such forgetfulness.
Using NR is easy: Click a button, enter the task and the time to do it. And how you want to be reminded about the task.
Select one of the sixteen buttons to start entering the task and the time to do it. Don't worry about the bottom buttons such as SP and EP for now. These are advanced features for research purposes.
Alternatively, you can speak to the app. Speak slowly the name of the task to be done, and the time to do it. NR would automatically schedule the tasks in time order.
You can customize a few things like whether you want to be reminded just in time about the task, or in advance. You can also customize the playback, to prevent it from announcing the task using voice if you want privacy.
NR, the Natural Reminders App, Imitates the way we Remember Tasks
The branch of psychology that studies the way we set and remember tasks is known as Prospective Memory or PM. NR's design is based on the principles of PM. By using NR regularly, you would be exercising your PM "muscles!" NR resides on a smartphone and you can set tasks as these pop up into your mind.
NR comes with an option to register for a My-Memory subscription web service. If you register, and use it regularly, you can measure your progress in remembering tasks. Exercising your PM muscles and checking your progress regularly should help you improve your PM and 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 remind you about the tasks through spoken words. Again, you can set this off if you want privacy
On 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).
Select any vacant button and 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.
Register for the My-Memory service, use NR regularly, use those EP and SP buttons and soon you will begin to get a lot of insights into your own memory performance!
