    I prefer Pocket Lists instead of Reminders. Location reminders are implemented so much better.

  • Betiga Labs

    You should also give Beja a try. It has all the features. It was designed to perform really really fast. It’s free.

    Future scheduler is the best reminder app which schedule auto message, calls, emails and social media posts.

    I use RemindersPro. Like iOS Reminders with the missing components – gestures, sort, filter, group, etc.
