Add reminder on smartphone
As we mentioned earlier, there are many note-taking and reminder apps for smartphones. Your own cell phone may have a factory installed, for example.
Still, to make this tutorial as efficient as possible for any smartphone and operating system, we will use Evernote. The app is one of the best known for making any kind of note taking, reminder and task lists.
It is available for Android, iPhone, computers and even has a web version. In the mobile version, our example will be on an Android device, but the same steps apply for any version of the iPhone.
Creating reminders like Evernote
To get started, you'll need to register or log in to an existing Evernote account. All of this is free and you can even use your Gmail account so you don't have to worry about creating an account from scratch.
With Evernote logged in, you will be taken directly to the app's home menu. Click on the “+” symbol to proceed.
This will open up some options for what you can add to Evernote. In this case, just choose the “reminder” option to continue.
You will have the opportunity to place the reminder name in the first line of the new window that appears, as shown in the image below.
Then, click on the calendar icon in the upper right part of the window.
This is where we set the time and day that will add a reminder on the smartphone. When choosing both, click "Save".
With these two settings in place, it's time to choose where the reminder will be kept. By default, the “Notepad” folder is set for everyone, but you can click on it to change it.
If you have more than one notebook saved in Evernote, you can choose the location of the reminders. Otherwise, leave it in the notepad.
With everything done, click "Set" to add reminder on the smartphone. Pretty simple, isn't it ?!
It will appear on your home screen, along with other reminders and notes that you may have saved in the app.
On the chosen day and time, Evernote will display a notification reminding you of the note. You can repeat this process as many times as you need a new reminder.
