My mother always said I’d misplace my head if it weren’t attached to my neck. I am very absent-minded and Due for the iPhone and iPad helps me remember things. Events in the future go on to the calendar, but if I need to remember to meet my wife somewhere, if I have to walk down the hall and check the laundry, or if I need to be reminded to leave for an appointment Due is a godsend.

Due allows me to set numerous reminders and timers. I make use of the Timers feature by keeping a couple of timers around all the time. I have 1, 5 and 15 minute timers which are always useful.

However, I also keep 38 and 50 minute timers. These are the cycle times for the washer and dryer in the laundry room in the condo we’re renting.

Keeping these handy means remembering to set a timer for laundry ((Since no one has a reminder app for remembering to set reminders.)) is as simple as pulling the phone from my pocket, launching Due and clicking the timer.

Reducing the friction between intending to do something and actually doing something is vital for me to remember little things. I highly recommend Due and at $4.99 for a universal app it is a steal.
