Alert Notes is a nifty little apps that converts normal, plain English notes into reminders.
If you're a fast typer, Alert Notes is probably quicker than other apps that require you to turn dials to select times and dates. I love how Alert Notes recognize contacts but doesn't make you choose anything about the contact until the moment you need access to the information. It's one less step to the alert-created process.
This app understands dates, relative dates and phrases that indicate recurring alerts. It's also smart enough to detect email addresses, phone numbers, street addresses, URLs, names and initials from your Contacts for quick access later. It's the ideal app to keep all those tidbits you want to be reminded of later.
