Set Up Reminders Easily Via Email

toggle-button

You're sat at your desk, or perhaps on the sofa, and you suddenly remember that it's your friend's birthday next Friday.  Which means you need to buy a card on Wednesday.  But that's 4 days away, so how are you going to remember? 

One option is to use a really neat email service called Nudge Mail (www.nudgemail.com).  Fire up your email program and create an email that says "Remember to buy a card".  Send that email to wednesday@nudgemail.com and the job's done.  On Wednesday, you'll get sent a reminder email.

Needless to say, Nudge Mail doesn't just work for Wednesdays.  Try sending a message to tomorrow@nudgemail.com if you prefer.  Or to 12february@nudgemail.com.  Or if you prefer, just send it to nudge@nudgemail.com and include the timing information in the subject line.  Full details are available on the site.

 

 

My thanks to Geert for telling me about this.  If there's a great freeware app or web-based service that you want to tell thousands of people about, just fill in the short form at http://www.techsupportalert.com/content/submit-product-review.htm and I'll try to write about your suggestion on these pages.
