With the wealth of excellent task managers out there it’s easy to overlook Apple Reminders and there is a good reason it gets overlooked. When Reminders was first introduced it was far behind the other tools on the market in the feature department so you couldn’t blame anyone who was looking for a good task manager when they dismissed Reminders without much thought. It was only an option for those that had very light task management needs.
But those days are long gone, and Apple Reminders has become a very capable task manager for almost every user. No it doesn’t have it’s own custom scripting language like OmniFocus does. No it’s not cross-platform like TickTick and Todoist are…but it is free for everyone with an Apple device. That means that it should be the default option of any Apple user since it sits there ready to use on your devices.
The truth is, most people don’t need Kanban boards and triggered tasks based on things that happen on the web. They need to track some tasks and organize them into a few lists. Maybe they need tags. Maybe they want to share a grocery list with some family members so that everyone is on the same page. Maybe the need Smart Lists to group tasks across different projects.
Apple Reminders has all of those features. It’s got excellent native integration with Siri and with the latest operating system updates, it has templates and smart lists to help you automate and group your tasks. Unlike task managers like Todoist, you don’t need to come up with some funny pronunciation to get Siri to work with it.
You also get sync for free with your iCloud account. This is a service that most task managers charge for and since most of us have multiple devices it’s a service that we all need to keep our tasks in sync across those devices.
For most people most of the time, Apple Reminders has all the features they’ll need to keep track of all their tasks.
