Do you use the BlackBerry 10 Remember app?

Remember app

One of the main things I use my BlackBerry 10 smartphone for is keeping me organized - although nothing can help me some days! Recently I was swiping through my app pages when I saw the Remember app and I realized that I don't use it. That got me thinking why I choose not to use it, bearing in mind that it is pretty awesome with its integration into so many parts of the OS.

There are a bunch of third party apps for making notes and lists (such as Stuff I Need and Lazy Lists) and that would normally be what I would use Remember for. I realize that the Remember app does so much more - including Evernote syncing, photo attachments and email flagging just to name a few, but for some reason I always go down the third party route.

I don't really know why. I like the features that the Remember app has to offer and it's user interface is pretty nice on the eye but still I never use it. It's maybe possible that I like to keep different things in different apps - which may sound odd as Remember would cater for all my needs. I also tend to use the calendar application on my BlackBerry for reminders so I suppose that eliminates the need to have a note in Remember with a due date.

Anyway, that's enough about me - but I'm curious to see if I am on my own here or do other BlackBerry 10 users not use the app and prefer a different choice. Hit up the options below if you would be so kind?

No. Like the idea but difficult to use.

You're trolling, right?..

ianbordas

I agree It is not very intuitive to use... I haven't been able to get this to remind me of ANYTHING (without having to go into the app and see what i have pending myself) - This really is just a basic NOTES app

keyboard_cat

I agree too... it needs time deadlines, not just date deadlines, and alarm customization. calendar is good for blocking off time, but sometimes I want a to do list with a time alarm for one or multiple items in the list, a list that is easy to simply add to (but still has a completion checkbox for each item) , and i want the list to expire and delete itself after a certain time or date. Right now I have too many remember lists because I never get around to deleting them

locke7

Agreed. That's my biggest issue with it. It needs time deadlines and better integration with the calendar. IMO it should simply be integrated with the calendar...

It's brutal that it didn't get setting a time until 10.2 (which is still not released)

crackbb10

I must say 10.1 brought a welcome update in the Active Frame which made the app useful to me.. if they could synch it with the calendar in 10.2...

All in all, Remember is pretty cool and one of my most used apps (since 10.1). I disagree with the notion that the app is hard to use... once you know what and (more important) where the available options are it's pretty straight forward...

It is not a plug and play app, there's a small learning curve to it.. but considering the fact that I'll be using it for the coming years, that's not a deal breaker (assuming they stick to Remember and keep updating it)

There's still plenty of room for improvements though... I would like some more customizable options...

From the Z...

keyboard_cat

Maybe there should be a guide for how to use it, or to explain what changed in new updates - that goes for all BlackBerry apps for that matter. Should we have to perform our own discovery to determine what changed? If there are change logs for updates, a link should be provided after the update, or it should automatically open a browser page or text file that details the changes. I hate having to hunt for things

It's released as you can see : Z10STL100-1/10.2.0.1047

Me too. And my calendar syncs with my google calendar, so adding appointments/ reminders in my calendar via multiple devices is quite easy.

Yes, cause I use ever note. Would rather have evernote app.

Straight from the Z10 in my hands.

keyboard_cat

Is it possible to add a clipping to ever note using BlackBerry Remember and to create and associate a task to the clipping/attachment with a time alarm? If not(it needs improvement. This also needs to transfer to the Evernote app.

jayjahed

Hey Prescott,

You can actually sync it with Evernote apparently. Check this out
http://t.crackberry.com/remember-blackberry-10

Cheers,

marcho11

I use it quite a bit.

JimCanuck

I use it for the Outlook Notes and Tasks synchronization (mostly Notes that I have been using for several years).

MobiusSamurai

Does it sync through a BES or how do you get to sync with outlook?

sk8er_tor

Probably talking about Outlook.com

bobo.cz

You can make account on Outlook.com and you'll get all ActiveSync features like calendar, contact, tasks and notes sync. It's free and it's awesome... ;)

MobiusSamurai

Awesome.... that solves a huge problem for me. Thx!!!

jhanks64

I haven't seen any way to sync notes with Google or Outlook.com. I use ActiveSync to my MDaemon account to sync everything including Notes. Otherwise Evernote is one of the few ways. BES accounts probably sync Notes also.

For detailed lists and more complicated projects, Remember is great.

For the grocery store, Lazy Lists does the job just fine.

crackbb10

Totally agree... but I would dump Lazy Lists if Remember would offer a solution for Groceries though...

If Remember would allow the rearrangement of items, it would render Lazy Lists obsolete...

A lot of would's here...

From the Z...

keyboard_cat

Oh yeah that was another big beef for me. It sorts list in alphabetical order, and you can't prioritize. It doesn't keep me organized then.. reminders and prioritization without having to block off time like you do with calendar would be ideal

Exactly. "A lot of would's". Isn't that what the entire app ecosystem is based upon? If all the native apps filled the void of every possible needs of the users, there wouldn't be any apps other than social media and games. We're just here to attempt to fill the gaps. We're not perfect but so isn't any of the platforms available today.

Grocery list is fine, but I use BBM for that. Too bad the remember app does tie into that.

Thats what i said, exact times, as in multiple times of day or for multiple days

Didn't use it when I first got my Z10, but use it a lot now, especially for keeping my travel info organized, including screen shots of my boarding passes. It's a nice complement to BlackBerry Travel.

Also use it for ideas and to jot down quick meeting notes.

Me too. I didn't use it at first. But nw. I can't do without the remember app. When I see something I want to download from BlackBerry World and I can't download it yet. I just share it to the remember app, I use it for a lot of other things too. Inshort I use it anywhere I see share

Of course. ;)
It was what I was waiting for as an option
I use it constantly. It saves time and frustration.

Look forward to new additions to Remember also. I always try to fully utilize baked in integrated apps.

Posted via CB10

keyboard_cat

You what I find shocking is that apparently you can share a lot if stuff from within apps (and I just now learned this from you- where is the guide?), but you cannot share a txt, email, or anything from the Hub!! That needs to be rectified immediately. Flagging emails has always been useless for me since you can't associate deadlines and alarms. If you could share it to remember and if remember would have time-based reminders it would solve a lot of problems. You should also be able to share to Calendar, without a doubt

woofhaven

Umm...you can do exactly that. if you flag the email it pops over into the Remember app where you can add a note to it, other attachments, due date, and a "done" checkbox.

I do this all the time with emails, and unlike a lot of other task apps that have email integration, here, attachments to the email are preserved. Another great feature is that once the email has been flagged and is in the Remember app, you can delete the email from the Hub and keep you inbox clean.

kozmo68

+10 I use it the same way. Also have set up folders that allows me to organize based on level of importance, department it originated etc.

Genghis2k3

Good to know. I never noticed the flagged email saves to the remember app. I abandoned the email flagging when I saw you couldn't set a due date from the flag.

I use remember all the time because of the voice note feature. I've recorded conference calls and time indexed important comments.

thesoundguy77

I use it, but find that if I want to set a reminder for a certain time during the day, I cannot do that. It will just give me the reminder at 9am the day of. The old Tasks on BBOS used to let me set specific times to notify me. Hopefully this feature is added in a future update.

I use all the time. Mostly for SoundHound. When I get the name of a song I hit share choose remember app I have a music file started put the song in there. Then any time I want to here that song I go to remember app pick my song and it fires it up from YouTube video and all. I have movie file, to do list, emails and a few more. Great time saving app to have everything in one place.

Ditto to the previous comments about needing to handle specific times for reminders (instead of all reminders coming up at 9am). Always important, but especially for me since synching with my work Outlook tasks. I'm surprised times didn't come out in 10.1, but read they were in 10.2.

NaijaBerry

It needs to be simplified, its like memo, calender and voice note in one place. Memo was fine on its own, calender is excellent by itself, use it everyday all day to remember stuff. Voice note needs to be alone once again as well, too complicated to get to it!

DetlevCM

I do use remember - whenever I take digital notes on the phone.
By volume more of my notes are quite possibly made in good old fashioned ink on paper - but on the go, what else?

Also, why use a third party product when the native one is great?

The only thing missing is proper synchronising over the air with Exchange.

Posted via CB10

newportironman

I use it but with huge reservations and disappointment. OS7 task and notes sync was beautiful. Remember will apparently infinitely over time duplicate tasks that are in the regular exchange task folder. I had to create another folder inside tasks (I call it Q10 tasks). They still show up in Outlook but don't duplicate in Remember. My Outlook notes which on 10.1 showed up in " unfiled " exchange folder - not the notes - now on 10.2 beta don't show up at all. This sounds like I'm gripping. Don't want to. As loyal as they come yet can't figure out how BB10 came to market as a keep moving (and for the Professional yet !) device with a task management system like this. Not even covering the 30 day follow up limitation. Had hoped OS 10.2 would show a giant leap forward. Nope. And my Evernote native app which was a great addition doesn't work on my 10.2.

Posted via CB10

KemKev

10.2 is still work in progress, no? The one you/we are using is a leak which means it is not quite polished and done yet. Also, I am using Evernote on my 10.2. You just need to sideload the bar file as has been stated in several fora.

CatlinFD

No. Haven't never even the application before. It sits in a folder called USELESS APPS with the rest of the useless bloatware.

rolojr1

I hardly use it. When I purchased the Z10 at launch I did a sync using Link. All of my contacts, BBM, messages, pics ect... went over well except my notes which were organized perfectly on my 9780. However, it was all thrown into remember in such a way that it is confusing and not organized the way it was before. if they demonstrated the uses and showed how is easy it is how come no one I know uses it? I love my Z10 but there were some things from the old os this os should have borrowed. That is simplicity.

Posted via CB10

True but there are new things we should also be open-minded about. We cannot keep expecting things to move forward yet keeping things the way they used to be.

No. It doesn't have the features I need.

LVampa

Multiple reminders, recurring reminders, nagging reminders, sub-folders for sub-tasks, more sort options (sort by date,category, folder, etc.), quicker integration with email and contacts, optional password protection for tasks and folders. I'm on OS 10.1 . Some of these features may be available in a later release that I am not aware of nor have access to - yet.

This is very subjective but I don't use it because of the app icon. I think the icon is dull and that subconsciously affects my decision. Most good 3rd party apps that help organise, make brighter logos and add a lot of color in the app, and I prefer to use those.

I use it a lot, but it would be nice if it showed as a task in the calendar app if you set a due date. That would you could flag an email (like a bill) it would show in remember, set a due date and it could be seen in the calendar, which I check several times a day.

I'm pretty much the same as James explains in his post... for some reason Remember doesn't get used and I go to third party apps and the calendar themselves.
I think it might have something to do with the visual appeal. Lazy Lists is easy and simple to use and it's reflected in the way it looks. Remember isn't hard to use, but it looks more complicated and just not as pretty and I'm not nearly as inclined to go there as I am to use Lazy Lists.

I use it a lot, yes. It's quite useful. I find it much more feature rich than the old memos app, obviously.

keyboard_cat

Wait, what? Flag puts it in remember? How do you find out about this, argh!

keyboard_cat

Ok now that I know this (and apparently there us a share for txt messages) this is good, but it would be quicker if after you hit flag you could hold on the flagged item and then see a new option to "open in remember " so you could then immediately set a due date (and time) with ought having to go and open remember, then click unfold entries, then hunt for the email subject line ( or go back to the email if you forgot which I just now did twice, haha).... a shortcut would be a nice time saver, especially if you're flagging many emails one morning all at once. also perhaps if you could select multiple emails and flag them all with a single Remember entry....

buckwylder

I like how it looks, it looks like a BlackBerry 10 application should. Of course I'm not opposed to improvements to its appearance and also more to it accessibility throughout the entire device / OS. It's a great application currently, but as time goes on I'm sure it will be more incorporated into the entire OS with added functionality.

i use it all the time now that it has a reminder option that goes directly in my calendar.....its great

surferito

I use it for several reasons:
- flagged emails can be found in the remember app, the you can add a reminder
- created a folder for manuals, train schedules, etc. Then added notes with the document description and attached the document to the note
- created a folder named things to do. Added notes for things to do

-added a note on how to out together my kayak carrier and attached a photo for each step to remember how I did it.

Michael Zens1

It does what it says: It helps me to remember things. And it does it in a simple manner. I use the camera to make pictures of my "post-its" or I record education courses. If I get an imported e-mail flag it so I can easily "remember" it. With BlackBerry remember you can keep all the information in one file. It's not a "getting-things-done-application" but for me it's powerful. I never saw something like that when I had an Android device. (A long, long time ago).

Initially, the ability to sync with Evernote was what grabbed my attention before getting my Z. Trying it out for the first time...yeah...

I'd rather take having a dedicated Evernote app instead, which I'm glad they are gonna put in for 10.2.

I'm surprised that a lot of people use it. I prefer to use Noted. Auto-saves entries after 1 minute, I can share entries or add entries via "Share", allows me to backup to my SD card, and best of all... IT'S SIMPLE!!

How does Remember not have a search function?? I can't remember things at all - I search for them. Remember is great for projects, but it's not efficient.

I still miss Memopad. If BlackBerry brought that back, but allowed me to backup the entries via cloud or SD card, I'd be set.

You can search using the universal search function. Tap on the magnifying glass and type in search term. You can also just search just within Remember by tapping on the 3 lines to the left of the search field.

I prefer native apps over anything. :) Just keep it up-to-date, and we're good!

Yes totally! I use deja office with the sync extension! So all my notes/tasks in outlook are synchronized! It's pretty awesome!

Didn't use it much until now in the new leak, but that's because you couldn't really set proper reminders before.

Using it and works really well now.

I use Remember when I need to make a simple list. It doesn't sync with Evernote as I am not willing to put some of the stuff in the cloud. Amazing that BlackBerry launched with no ability to set reminders. So I end up with crap in my calendar that doesn't belong there. If I don't get it done I have to waste time moving it. My only hope is that Verizon doesn't hold back 10.2.

Yes but I hate it. I basically only use it for evernote. I'm ready for that standalone app.

I love the Remember app and use it everyday. Evernote compatibility is choice.

The only thing that could be improved upon is to have better due date integration and GPS / location-aware notes.

I deleted the remember app in favour of Memo Pad. No particular reason except that I used Memo Pad on previous BB's and found it very useful, not to mention user friendly.

crackbb10

How did you delete it?

From the Z...

GLOBALceo

Remember is okay. It's missing key functions I got with the old os. I need it to have recurring settings and be able to see it in calendar as well. If it doesn't have that then it's not a task manager, it's a digital notebook

I DID use it....but 10.2 has screwed it up....i am currently using a side loaded android Evernote app until the native one is released

I like remember, but it would be so much more useful if when you flagged an email into it, it wouldn't delete from your phone after the designated time period like the rest of your inbox

Posted via CB10

Omnitech

Yeah that's an amazingly "facepalm" aspect of the "flagged email" feature. At the VERY least there should be a GIANT WARNING about that when you flag an email, that it disappears after your Hub email retention period expires.

jic999

This is the most annoying issue. Because when I build a Business project folder in Remember / Evernote it includes attachments, Web links, notes, pictures and important emails. Well this email can be deleted from the Hub. It would be nice to have an option to delete all emails except Remember / Evernote emails from the Hub. Tick tick Keep Moving BlackBerry.

Ouch yeah that is a bummer..... i have tasks many months in the future, vital info would get lost

I use Lazy Lists for "lists" as shopping/grossery or for the things I need to do and check.
The App Remember is used by me as in the "Getting Things Done" system: I created folders as "Projects, Action required, Incubated, Waiting, someday/maybe". The things I have to do (not necessary lists) are put in the special folders and get their due date... So the App pops up the action when required. Appointments and date+time related actions are put in the calendar. Project related items are listed in "Lazy Lists"... Works well for me!

jic999

My iPhone user buddies are amazed on how many Remember/Evernote folders I have and the sync with Evernote. I said Evernote has been with iPhone for years. But how Evernote is intergrated with the HUB is stellar. hey Blackberry get the Remember App to add a simple feature for lists like Lazy lists add Super notes in the App and be able to share a complete Remember / Evernote folder and allow for an option in the HUB to delete all emails except Remember / Evernote emails you have a winner ! tick Tick Keep Moving BlackBerry !

BoldWorld

This is my vote. Since its not an option I'll put it here

Yes, I use the Remember app but it doesn't keep me perfectly organized.
Remember needs much more

I like the Remember app but I wish it would sync with my calendar. I also wish I could adjust the time like my calendar so all the things I put in the Remember app doesn't always alert me at the same time every day.

It is actually one of my most used apps, keeps me very organized.

All my life is in that app (well, in the calendar and password keeper). Work fiels, school projects, projects, things to do, where I keep stuff!!

dadnowak

Sure do. Helps me keep things I can't seem to remember. My wife's ring size for example and the name of a few good cigars as I always forget them, and about 30 other things

Always on my Q10!

Omnitech

Yes I use it, no I don't like it much.

It's missing too much functionality, I just use it because it's native to the OS. Can't even export from this app or use the OS built in "share" feature to send it somewhere else without using Evernote, which I refuse to use. (poor security history)

Perhaps that's why there are umpteen other "notepad" apps on BlackBerry World. I will probably buy one of them and stop bothering with Remember.

sarcasticcaptain

I'm trying hard but it's not as intuitive to use. I like to save clean articles from reader but it's not available to save it that way. Folders created locally cannot be synced with Evernote. It has to be deleted first. It fills crowded for some reason, although I cannot pin point what make it. I only notice this limitations because I've been using plant of other reminder apps. Remember has huge potential BlackBerry just hast to update it with more features. If they could make it a hybrid between Pocked and Instapaprt or Redibility, I would use it more often.

BlackB_G

Totally use it now on 10.2 thanks to the time reminder setting. Previously I didn't.

Posted via CB10

w0lfgang

HOW? On 10.2, it only shows my Outlook notes and tasks and NOTHING from my Evernote account. I've tried deleting it in the hub then adding it again, I've tried clicking on the app, then it says "there is a new version" then it takes me to BB world so that I can read "not available for your device."

Definitely one of my favorite apps on the ENTIRE device! :D

I use it. Recently I was looking for a bike for my daughter I did my research, checked out a few sites and priced them. I wanted a place to keep all my notes and then I remembered BlackBerry Remember. I saved the websites, pictures, prices in one folder in Remember so I can re visit this when I was ready to buy her bike. When I was I set a reminder to myself to purchase it well before her birthday so that it would arrive in time. Worked well.

yes love it. I also sync a to do list with my hotmail account - i get my to do 's on my Q10, and on my surface and outlook. great feature, look forward to seeing it's further development. Better evernote integration will work but even as it is, good job - credit where credit is due blackberry!

Use it everyday. For EVERYTHING! ..
And people saying it's too complicated? How could it be any simpler? Just because there are a few options doesn't mean you have to use them. Lol!

Posted via CB10

rkevwill

Sure, its fine if you use it solely on the phone, but if you need to sync it to tasks on Outlook, and get reminded at a particular time, it doesn't work! (at least not as advertised)

I use it religiously. From managing major MySql Database Information to segmented Grocery Lists to Utility & Bill Management to Software and Product Key Notes to Client Information, Birthdays & Holidays, extended power NFC notes and so much more; I've strengthened the relationship between the native Calendar to the Remember App.

It is part of the BlackBerry blood flow that makes me proud to be a part of what BlackBerry represents. Third party apps are good, but at base, I'll scour a native BlackBerry App first, and see to take the relationships I have with the other productive BlackBerry apps and run with it. We live in an age that is drowning in information, yet stated for wisdom. Bottom line is that BlackBerry simplifies life by collectively bringing in the most important productivity apps and having the index goal for the end-user to take full advantage of it before looking elsewhere. Could use a few more "Colors" for the Remember Folders, but that will come in time along with the bond between Remember and Calendar as well...

I use it a lot. When I go through my emails I flag the emails I need to go back to and they all show up in Remember. I can then sort them in folders and add a due date. I like that you can be more specific and set both date and time in OS 10.2. What I wish for is to be able to have an option to select folder and due date as I flag my email in the hub. That would be awesome.

i dont need a reminder app! if i want to be reminded i stick it in my calender. i just want a working Notes app like there used to be

lorax1284

I just use it like the old Memo app too, only you can categorize things. It's not all that much harder to use if you just use it as a replacement for "Memo".

bobfranklin

Crummy interface and not user friendly. Rarely use.

lorax1284

I like it a lot; I just wish there was what Palm used to call a "conduit" so I could type notes and organize data on my desktop computer and "sync" it to my handheld. It's where I store information that I need to know but don't use very often: I don't like carrying that info on paper with me because if I lose it, others will have it... but on my BB, it's secure from prying eyes.

maranr

I use it all the time to take notes and for tasks. I love it. Would like more features though.
