I was writing this review in the Reviews section in Product Hunt for this product, but halfway through, I accidentally clicked outside the “Add Review” popup aka the black overlay that covers 75.6% of the screen. And it deleted the whole review, without warning, and only left behind the result of whether or not I clicked the “happy” smiley button. That was some painful user experience work. So here I am, writing this review in the Notes app, only to copy and paste this in the comment section later. That reminded me of my experience with many other apps on the market. Reminders or not, some were very cluttered with zillion features, and some look straight out of someone’s Youtube tutorial of how to get started with Xcode. This app is the perfect balance of that. The UI is functional and straightforward but packed with features that a core Reminder app should have. I was blown away from the onboarding screen, specifically the Permissions page. Not only does it explain why it’s using this permission, but these options are also right to its name, optional. This experience should have been what the native Reminders app I expect to see from Apple, but I’m very delighted to see it coming from a developer. And I’m amazed of how after an hour of usage, it doesn’t feel like I’m trying out an app that’s just launched named Reminders 2.0, but rather something I felt like I’ve known for a very long time. I’m not a writer, so I doubt I can explain this entirely, but it’s this feeling when something just clicks, when you don’t see or feel the things that are in between you and the software (screen, buttons, text) but it feels like it’s a part of your body, like you already knew how it works without much learning. Every option is there where I expect it to be because it's so simple. That being said, I despise the neon cyan colour you used on light theme, Mark. But other than that, Reminders is an absolutely beautiful app that is remarkably intuitive for everyone who’s as forgetful as me. I just proofread this review again, and it sounds like I’m a maniac who got paid to write this promo. I hope you don’t feel the same way and I got my point across.

@pwign Thank you for the amazing review! It really means a lot. I’m trying my best to walk the line between simple and powerful.

My understanding of the location service on iOS is that it does not provide 3rd party developers with fine accuracy when it comes to location alerts. For example, in OmniFocus I have the app alert me when I am near a location which I've associated with a task. However, even at the smallest alert distance, OmniFocus sends me notifications any time I'm within 0.5-0.75 miles of the location. Compare this to the Reminders app created by Apple, I'm able to create alert geofences with radiuses of only 328 feet compared to the 1320 feet minimum provided to 3rd party developers. I see that your Reminder 2.0 app features location alerts. Can you speak about whether this app allows for geofences which are as small as those provided by Apple's Reminders app?
Mark D.Maker@mpdifran · iOS Engineer
@magnuson I haven't heard anything about 3rd party developers having less accuracy for geofences. I usually set my geofences at 100 m (328 ft) and they trigger just fine.
Charles Magnuson@magnuson · Professional Consumer
@mpdifran Interesting. Thank you for following up. I'll have to contact OmniFocus since their geofences are well over 1,000 feet when set at the smallest size. Maybe they haven't updated to the newest API or something like that.
