emails for ideas, reminders and for questions that need to be dealt with later!

“When I have an idea for a project or something like that, I email it to myself in order to make sure that I remember it later or when I need to search for an answer to some question etc…”  student

There is an online service called Nudgemail that allows you to send email reminders without signing in or having to open your own email account if you are parted from your own technologies for any length of time!

The company has put up a Nudgemail YouTube video that explains how you can sort out your timely reminders or link it up with Google Calendar.

Google Calendar for reminders and managing time.

“Google Calendar helps me remember things that I need to do and manage my time.  By setting up reminders via email or from the calendar when I am online I can choose in advance how much warning I might need.” Bobby (MSc Web Technology)

Google have a YouTube video about setting up reminders.

Using CalenGoo for sending reminders via text and email

I have an Orange / T-mobile account on my iPhone and with CalenGoo syncing with my Google calendar I can set up SMS reminders as well as email or pop up ones.  The app costs £4.99 but allows for so many more options compared to the built in calendar on the iPhone including the chance to sync with multiple calendars. This means calendars can be set up for special projects.  Colour coding and large fonts with zoom make it a calendar that is easy to read even on a small screen. Lots of online support is provided by the developers

CalenGoo is also available for Android phones and costs £4.63
