There’s no doubt that, this Windows 8 reminder app has got some points, that goes in the favor of it’s usability. First of all, the concept of the app is good, which is letting you see all the reminders at Windows 8 Start Screen. Windows 8 Start Screen is the first screen that you’ll be with, after you successfully log into Windows 8. Viewing all reminders in the very first screen is a good option, and helps a lot in remembering stuff. And also, whenever you need to launch a new app in Window 8, the most apparent way is to press Windows key. This opens the Windows 8 Start Screen again. So, even if you missed the reminder earlier, then you can remember them again by viewing the reminders as live tile messages in Windows 8 Start Screen.
I liked the fact that, the app has a very clean and clear interface, that makes it very easy to quickly create and then remove the reminders. All you have to do is, right-click on the app’s screen and then click on Add button. This opens a flyout at the right side of screen; wherein you can enter the reminder’s title and description. The max. length of the description is 300 words. That’s pretty good enough for a description. Then, simply click on OK button.
The next thing that you have to do is, pin the app to the Start Screen and change it’s tile size to “wide”. The app automatically starts showing all the reminders that are saved, in the form of live tile messages. The font of the reminder message at app’s live tile is big enough to view easily. Although, I do wish that the app provided options to change the font style, size, and color.
To remove completed reminders, simply right-click on the reminder and click on Remove button.
