Natural Reminders is a different kind of task reminder app that mimics the way our brains set and remember tasks, and then reminds us about these just in time (or in advance). And you can set the task speaking slowly to the app if you have a good Internet connection. It can even speak back to you about the task when it’s time to remind you!
It is simple to use:
Press the save button
NR can be used to remind up to 7-Days at a time on an ongoing-basis, week-in / week-out.
We mentioned above that all data remains on the users own device. While this ensures privacy, it does not allow automatic analysis of the data to find out whether your memory is improving. If you would like to find out how your memory is performing, you can register for the My-Memory functionality at https://naturalreminders.com/ for a small fee.
Upon registering for the My-Memory functionality reminder data will be stored on NR servers and analysed statistically. In that case, you can see how your memory for tasks is performing or changing over time. This is because NR can analyse completion or non-completion of all tasks and can produce graphs of each user’s performance over time.
When you click one of the four buttons – Forgot, Done, Outdated, Canceled – it does not merely delete the task but along with the Forgot-Reschedule and Remember-Reschedule buttons, also tells us something about the fate or outcome of tasks. This can help our research and, in time, help us understand better how and why we remember and forget tasks. Unlike the controlled experiments in a lab, these are real life data that could help us understand better how NR can be used to support everyday memory
EP and SP memory research buttons
EP stands for Environmental Pop-up. SP stands for Spontaneous pop-up. The EP and SP buttons are unique and solely for research, for users who wish to help further our research on memory and opt in. We are inviting users to press EP whenever they see or hear something in their natural environment that reminds them to do a task (it doesn’t matter if the task is in NR or not). For example:
We are trying to understand more about how EP and SP works in real life and your support – by tapping these buttons your environment and/or your own mind triggers your memory; will help us understand this better.

The standard NR app and its data remain on your smartphone with no access to anybody. Once you delete the data, it is gone for ever. While this is good for privacy, it prevents analysis that could help monitor your memory performance and any improvements in it. If you would like to do such monitoring and try to improve your task memory, you can register for the My-Memory functionality paying a small fee.
If you register for the My-Memory functionality, your data get uploaded to our servers. If you use the “research” buttons – Forgot, Done, Outdated, Canceled / Forgot-Reschedule and Remember-Reschedule / EP and SP – your memory performance can be analysed in meaningful ways. The analysis can reveal whether your task memory is improving and you yourself, your family, doctor and care-givers can check progress via the web and get detailed results.
