How to Use the Reminders App
Open the Reminders app on your iPhone. To create a new list tap the plus icon in the top right of the screen, then tap list. Name the list and choose a color. When you’re finished, tap Done. You can go back to see all your lists by tapping on the group of lists on the very bottom of the screen.
You can also rearrange lists. Just tap and hold on the list and slide it up or down to the order you’d like. To delete a list tap on it, then tap Edit. Tap Delete List at the bottom of the screen, then tap Delete.
To create a new reminder you can either tap the plus icon at the top of the screen and tap Reminder, or simply tap on the list you want to add to, and tap the next blank line available. Type the reminder. If you don’t need any custom information added to the reminder tap done. If you’d like to add an alert or additional info, tap the i.
You can customize an alert for a specific date and time, and choose if it’s a repeating reminder. You can also choose to be alerted at a location. You can choose to be notified when getting in or out of your car if you have a bluetooth enabled system or you can type the address or name of the location.
After choosing a location, you can select to be alerted upon arriving or leaving the location. You can also use two fingers to expand or minimize the blue circle on the map. You’ll be alerted when you enter or leave the circle depending on which option you choose.
Back on the Details page you can also choose a priority level, select the list, or add some notes. When you’ve completed a reminder task tap the circle. If you close the Reminders app and open it you’ll see the task has disappeared from the list. You can tap Show Completed to view your completed tasks.
To delete a task item, swipe to the left on the task and tap delete.
Use the Reminders app to keep track of tasks and get reminders on certain dates and times, or at specific locations.
