What's it about?

REMINDERS, CALENDAR, ALARM AND VOICE REMINDER - AIDA REMINDER (REMIND ME APP) opens to a user's active task list. Using the tasks on the left side of the screen, kids can add one of five types of list items: one-time reminder, recurring reminder, wake-up alarm, voice reminder, or music reminder. Below these options is the calendar view, which will show the current month with a star below each date that has any sort of reminder built in. From the main screen, tasks are listed in order of time or priority. When adding a new task, kids click on a type of reminder and then answer the prompts that follow. They can add images, voice reminders, and musical reminders to help prompt them based on the task or add pre-task reminders leading up to a larger event. To edit each event, kids double-click on the task within the list.

Is it any good?

While the features and customization options offer flexibility, some kids may be overwhelmed by the interface and multiple steps. Being able to personalize each added task with a unique image or sound may be beneficial for kids who need reminders for transitions. When used in conjunction with the built-in notification options of the iOS version, kids can receive reminders without having the app open on their device. It also logs past or completed activities, which may be helpful for kids to use looking back on past activities or to plan future activities. Being able to prioritize is also helpful for kids who are able to sort that way or need practice figuring out which task should come first. For younger kids -- or kids who get overwhelmed with busy screens -- this may be too complex. When adding any sort of task, users click through four screens, which could be hard for some kids, so younger users may need help from a grown-up to successfully input activities. Certain kids can get a lot out of this tool, while others may need a simpler interface and fewer options.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about using technology to learn and stay organized. How can apps and devices help you stay on top of tasks?

  • Talk about the importance of routine. For example, ask kids what their morning routine should look like for leaving the house on time, and talk about why schedules are unique to each person. Together, talk about how to prioritize morning tasks to keep everyone on track. 

  • Discuss balancing work and play. Help kids schedule times for activities they enjoy, such as sports, music, games, or reading, between more challenging or disliked tasks so they get a brain break.
