What parents need to know

Ease of play

The app is a bit challenging to use. The interface isn't very intuitive, so it takes some figuring out. Users type in a keyword and then add other words to associate with that keyword. Users can also add a note to a reminder and encrypt it with a password if desired.

This app accesses user location for the map reminders feature. In addition, the developers promote the app as a tool for storing a variety of easy-to-forget information, including passwords. It should be noted that the app is not designed as an encrypted password manager tool. Kids and adults should be cautious about what information they store in FORGET Full.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that FORGET Full bills itself as a way to remember easy-to-forget information like passwords, license plate numbers, and bank account numbers, but teens should only use it for semi-important things and definitely not for storing sensitive information. Though it's possible to attach encrypted notes to each reminder, the app doesn't state whether the passwords users set for app access are encrypted. FORGET Full should probably be used as a real reminder tool for important information only by older teens and adults who know how to keep such information private and secure.

What's it about?

There are three function pages: one to display recent keywords and reminders, one to search for reminders, and one to create a new reminder. To create a reminder tap on the first row and add a keyword. Then add a word, such as \"license plate.\" Type in your license plate number. Tap the \"create\" button to create an association. Next time when you look up the word license plate, you'll be reminded of the number you entered. The iPad version has a different user interface layout from the iPhone when in landscape mode.

Is it any good?

QUALITY
 

FORGET FULL may be a good reminder tool for people who are inundated with information. The app allows users to associate a keyword ("Susie's Mom") with specific information ("Iliana Smith") as a way to create reminders. The app also allows users to attach photos, notes, maps, and websites to the reminders. Users can store information such as the names of their kids' friends' parents, license plate numbers, or the locations of places.

Though the app has a solid video tutorial and user manual, the interface is still a bit clunky. It takes some practice to get used to the navigation and editing tools, and even then, it doesn't quite work as expected. As a tool for storing sensitive information, the app's security isn't convincing. Users can attach encrypted notes to the reminders, which might be used for storing passwords or account numbers. However, it is not recommended that teens store sensitive information on a device that connects to the Internet or could be easily lost or stolen.
