Do you need
a simple calendar-alarm app for your smartphone? Would
you like to just set a given event, on a specific date
and time, and have your phone automatically fire off an
alarm at the appointed moment? If so, then Just
Reminder, from AppHouze Co., may be the app for
Setting an alarm is really easy. Just tap on the big
green plus sign on the apps main screen. If you
wish, you can categorize your reminder under entries such
as ToDo or Call (a contact), add a telephone number, or
optional notes. The main parameters to set are the date
and time of the event, with an option to specify a number
of minutes, hours or days prior to the event that the
reminder should be issued. Its also possible to set
the type of alarm (with or without vibration) and a
variety of repeat intervals.
Scheduled events are listed on the apps main page
in chronological order. As you might expect, when an
event comes due, the phones ringer sounds and a
notification pops up on the screen. One tap on the
notifications mute button silences the alarm. If
you dont dismiss the reminder, it will go into
snooze mode for ten minutes and then trigger the alarm
The app has a number of other features, and the free
version has some ads but, so far, its mode of operation
suits my purposes admirably.
