On Shaun McGill's blog, he wrote about starting to dig Apple's builtin apps and services, leading off with Reminders, thanks to the convenience of its Siri integration. I wrote back to complain that iOS "Reminders" will always feel like a baby app because it doesn't do recurring reminders. He said he preferred the simplicity in not having the UI ever-cluttered with future tasks, and that there were hundreds of other 3rd party task apps for my needs. I was about to continue our civil disagreement by pointing out none of those apps will be usable via Siri (which is a whole argument) but then I realized the joke was kind of on both of us: you can create repeating Reminders via Siri.
And, I thought, only by Siri. But I was mistaken: the functionality is hidden, so that this screen
It was interesting that Shaun and I both made the same misassumption. Out of sight, out of mind!
Anyway, I'm not sure if Siri integration is enough to make switch over to Reminders. For one thing Reminders can't add a date to a task without a time as well... a very datebook way of thinking that goes in hand with "when should I send a notification" thinking, but doesn't match how I cope with my load of tasks. Similarly, the badge icon task count is underbaked, or at least not updated in a timely fashion.
One thing I like about Reminders is that you're free to edit the order of the list, while Appigo assumes Due Date and priority sorting. Appigo also makes engineery-smart and UX-y dumb assumption about ordering... its due date sorting is strictly chronological (to the day level, and then alphabetical) - time sorting makes some sense because older items are "more overdue" and, presumably, a higher urgency. In reality, an item that has drifted a day or two overdue is probably ok there and demonstrably not a 100% priority, but the stuff that came up today has a chance of being absolutely critical. My ideal, then, would be a reverse time sort option. This might feel strange since it means everything due or overdue is sorted in reverse chronological order and everything upcoming is sorted in more normally, but from a workflow sense it's a viable option.
