It’s been about 2 weeks now since I made the transition to Reminders after being a Things user for most of the year. I liked Things, it has a nice UI and plenty of features to boot, however I’ve been finding that the more features something has the less I find it functional for my use case. Sometimes less really is more and that’s why ultimately I switched to Apple’s Reminders.
I’ve mentioned several times on here that I like to use Apple’s native apps where possible and I’m happy I have another native app I’m content with. Reminders works so seamlessly with my Apple Watch and Siri and the shared list functionality is a real game changer for me. I have a shared grocery list with my husband that we can both add to and edit and it’s so handy. There are so many ways you can make use of the shared list feature, I think it’s one of the best things about Reminders personally.
Reminders isn’t an app that has loads of bells and whistles (yet) but I think it has brilliant functionality and I like that you can customise your lists to be colour-coded and also add an icon. It’s one of those apps that just works (for me), you don’t need to learn how to use it, just create your list, add your items and you’re done. Simplicity at it’s finest.
