Technology: apps that can help forgetful people to remember

These apps are ideal for anyone who has trouble remembering all life’s little things.

To Do Reminder

This is another brilliant list-making app. One particularly clever feature of To Do Reminder, though, is that it allows you to make all your notes by voice – so you don’t even have to type! Pretty handy, and great for when you’re on the go.
Available free for iOS and Android

Do It (Tomorrow)

Not everyone has time to do everything in one day, and for those people, Do It (Tomorrow) may be the ideal app. With Do It (Tomorrow), you simply set your list of to-dos, and whatever you can’t get done today, you shuffle to tomorrow. So, by putting off your less-important unfinished tasks until tomorrow, you’ll still have a sense of achievement today. Hooray!
Available free for iOS and Android

Countdown+ Event Reminders

Ever have trouble remembering birthdays, or other special days, such as anniversaries or when you should change your kitty litter? Well, if you couldn’t already tell that one by the smell (the kitty litter, not the birthday or anniversary), you’ll be happy to know that Countdown+ Event Reminders is an ideal app to help remind you of those occasions.

This app allows you to set prompts for special events, enabling you to customise reminders with photographs, fonts and colours. Once you’ve made your reminder look all pretty, you can set a timer that counts down the minutes til the day arrives. So you’ll never need an excuse for forgetting your anniversary. Sorry.
Available free for iOS, Android and Windows Phone


apps for forgetful people triplist

Don’t you just love packing for a trip? And with all the preparation in the world, you, like me, may arrive and still have forgotten your phone charger or underwear (except the ones you’re wearing, of course). Well TripList may make leaving your knickers at home a little more difficult and, at the same time, make packing a far less stressful task. Simply create your holiday list well in advance and TripList will send you gentle reminder for when you should start packing. Once you’ve checked the boxes next to your packed items, it will give you an update on what you’ve left out of your bag. And once you’ve made one list, you can transfer it to your next holiday. Pretty handy huh?
Available free for iOS

Mint Bills (iOS and Android, Free)

apps for forgetful people mint bills

Keeping track of paying your bills can be a daunting task. And all those late payments can cost you a pretty penny too. Mint Bills tracks the dates on which your bills are due, then sends you a reminder of when you should pay them. It even has a facility to securely link your accounts and payments and, although it already informs you of when bills need to be paid, also offers an automatic payment option, so you’ll never have a late fee again.
Available free for iOS and Android

    Yes, but even with a fancy whatsa ma jig like this, when it's all boiled down the whole point of the matter is to be able to remember to remember to er er OMG I've forgotten.

    Is there a 10.6.8 version?

    The new app helps you remember that you forgot the app that you need to remember. Then you can remember the app that you forgot and no longer need the app that helps you remember the app that you forgot. OH Just forget it and you'll be better off not remembering you forgot.
