Siri works great in conjunction with the built-in Reminders app. Not only can Siri create and add reminders to pretty much any list you have, Siri can also make it incredibly easy to manage and share a shopping list. So the next time you need milk or want someone in your house to pick it up while at the store, just tell Siri!
Siri makes it easy to create lots of different kinds of reminders without ever having to even launch the Reminders app. One of the most common types of reminders that most of us set almost every day are time-based reminders. Next time you need to create one, try using Siri to save some time!
Since the Reminders app for iPhone and iPad can use your location to dish up reminders based on where you are, Siri can add location-based reminders for you as well. Simply tell Siri what you need to be reminded of, and where, and you're done!
Not only can Siri create reminders for you and automatically add them to your Reminders app, Siri can also obey the lists you have already set up. If you don't want a new reminder to go to your default list, all you have to do is tell Siri.
If you've created lists within the default Reminders app, there are probably lists that you access more frequently than others. For most of us, that will probably be our work lists. While you can easily switch between lists you can also change the order around to set the ones that you use the most with a higher preference. This way, when you switch between lists you'll see them in the order you prefer instead.
Once you've started creating reminders and lists to put them in, there may come a time when you don't need one of those lists anymore. Perhaps you set up a list for a specific project that is now over or you don't need a shared list with a colleague anymore. Instead of leaving a list you don't intend on using anymore within the Reminders app, you can just as easily delete it.
The default Reminders app changed a little when iOS 6 came about and the way you switch between lists was one of those changes. If you're the type that creates Reminders lists for different events, the importance of switching between lists quickly is probably pretty important to you. Many users were left wondering if Apple took this functionality away since they couldn't swipe across their lists like they used to.
As it turns out, Apple just changed up where you swipe...
While creating reminders in the default Reminders list on iPhone and iPad serves it's purpose, we've all got different tasks and things to remember on a regular basis. For most, that will be a combination of tasks between home, work, volunteer organizations, and more. The default Reminders app allows you create custom lists outside of the default ones just for this reason.
Once you've started creating reminders, you'll also start marking them as complete once you've finished with a task. If there's ever a time that you've created a reminder for a task that you later don't need to perform, you could always mark it as complete to get rid of it, but there's actually a better solution. The Reminders app also gives you the option to delete it.
The built-in Reminders app makes for a great way to keep you on task and organized. Once you've learned how to create reminders, you can view them at any time on your iPhone and iPad. Then, when you complete them, you can just as easily mark them as complete so they disappear from your Reminders app.
