Add Reminder to Calendar


Description of App: 

If you're like me, you use your iPhone's calendar like a to-do list, reminding your future self of what needs to be done when.This app allows you to silently and discreetly add reminders to your iOS device's calendar in just a few taps.The built-in interface to add calendar appointments is a bit cumbersome - it takes at least eight taps, plus some typing, to set up an event with an alert.I built this app for myself to simplify the process:

  • One tap to open the app
  • One tap plus some typing to enter a description
  • Adjust the date/time picker, which has sensible defaults
  • One tap on the big round "+" button - and you're done!

It also takes just one tap to adjust alert and duration - and your choices are remembered for the next time you want to add an appointment.Note: This is the free version of the app, and it is supported by an iAd. If you'd like to remove the ad, check out the premium edition: Add Reminder to Calendar Gold.

Accessibility Comments: 

The buttons for adding a reminder or editing preferences for a reminder have the labels "Plus" and "Prefs," as read by VoiceOver. While these are a bit unusual, they are self-explanatory. Aside from that tiny consideration, everything in this ap is totally intuitive and accessible.
