  • Have you done a how-to for travel time reminders?
  • Great how-to, as always. I often refer friends and family to your how-to's rather than trying to tackle it myself.
    I've been using this since iPhone 1 for my bills. (Actually, prior to iPhone, iCal) I set them for the day they are due, recurring every month (etc) reminder 1 & 2 days before, with a link to the log-in site where the payment is to be submitted.
