Here are eight apps that will prove invaluable to anyone who has trouble remembering everything. You’ll never forget to remember again!

apps for forgetful people apple reminders

Your iOS and MacOS device comes with a very capable reminder app called, funnily enough, Reminders. This standard app allows you to easily create to-do lists, which can be assigned to different aspects of life, such as house, shopping, bucket-list, and so on. You can also set reminders to help you remember to do the items on your list. The reminders can be set for a certain time, or when you arrive at a particular location. Say you need milk, well, you set a reminder and a location of your milk bar or supermarket, and when you’re close by, Reminders will send you, you guessed it, a reminder.

    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.
