Notificant delivers Growl-like notifications across multiple Macs

Notificant is an OS X reminder app designed to work with multiple computers. It's not vying to replace Growl on your Mac; it's more of a complement to the venerable notification app. While Growl lets you get alerts from apps on your local machine, Notificant lets you create new alerts and reminders and send them to any of your computers. Sure, with a little bit of tinkering in the Terminal,...

What the Zuk: Stickies is the best sticky-note application money can't buy

What the Zuk is a (very) occasional feature, in which I review software that I have been using for many years, and which is instrumental for my work. These are the first tools I install on every new system, the reliable work-horse applications I turn to for every need. In every installment I will try to explain what makes this particular program special, and why I find it so vital for my...

FollowUp.cc is like a more powerful FollowUpThen without the annoying image

I constantly use FollowUpThen to remind myself to follow up on emails that I've sent. It's a super-handy service, but it's not without its shortcomings. One of its biggest problems (in my view) is the huge sticky note image that it sticks into every message. FollowUp.cc is a service that, according to its developer, existed long before FollowUpThen, and it offers a heck of a lot more in terms of...

FollowUpThen updates with new "pending" feature, date formats

FollowUpThen, one of my favorite productivity tools, has been updated this morning with some new goodies! The most useful new feature (for me, at least) is that I can now see any pending follow-ups by sending a blank email to pending@followupthen.com, and I can also cancel them right from the email itself (as you can see above). They also added a couple of new scheduling formats, such as day of...

Between to-dos and calendars, there's Superminder

Somewhere between the vagueness of to-do lists and the complication of calendars, there's Superminder . It's a simple email and SMS reminder service that looks great and works will a minimum of fuss. Set a timezone, give it an email and a mobile number, and away you go. Reminders just get a name, a date, a time, and a delivery method, and you can forget the rest. It's like iCal without the...

Task.fm creates tasks and reminders from natural language

Task.fm is a simple web-based task and reminder app. Its aim: allowing you to type your entries in natural language, just like you were speaking them to another person. Email reminders for tasks you create are totally free, while SMS and voice alerts will cost 1 credit. Credits are reasonably priced: two dollars gets you 20, while 100 is only $8. That's not bad for a hotel-style courtesy call....

PMS Buddy - don't get caught using this site

I struggled briefly with whether or not to write a post about PMS Buddy, due to the fact that it could possibly offend some people. But I'm not here to tell you you should support or use it, or that you shouldn't - I'm just saying, "hey, look at this." PMS Buddy is a website with a cute slogan and a simple goal. The slogan, "saving relationships, one month at a time!" refers to PMS Buddy's only...

Doodle.ch: elegant, no-fuss scheduling utility gets a Facebook app

Doodle.ch is a straightforward, highly-usable tool for scheduling events or making decisions with a group. It generates polls that the members of your group can use to fill in their availability for an event, or even simpler polls that let you make a list of options (What should we serve at dinner? Which movie should we see?) and see which ones work for your group members. We last wrote about...

Time Machiner: Send emails to a future date

New web service Time Machiner enables you to send emails to any recipient on any future date. You can use the service to remind yourself of upcoming events or appointments, or you can set up happy birthday emails to friends, family members, and co-workers, in one glorious chunk of time. And, if you time it right, you can even send emails from beyond the grave. Cue Vincent Price's ghoulish...

YourLi.st: e-mail reminder service sans registration

YourLi.st is a simple web service that sends you an e-mail reminder on the day and time you specify (with an option to have a pre-reminder). The site does not require registering with them, so you can have a reminder set up in seconds. Events can have a title and summary, and the reminder can be set to repeat. A bookmarklet is available to set up reminders even more quickly. When you create a...

HassleMe sends you annoying emails

Sure, your inbox is already filled with annoying emails asking if you'd like certain parts of your anatomy to be larger. But if you're like most Download Squad readers (and writers, for that matter), you probably spend a fair bit of your day sitting in front of your computer with your email application of choice open in one window. And so sometimes a quick email can be more effective on the short...

Task tracking with HiTask

HiTask is an online based task management tool that collects tasks, groups them and applies colored tags so users can easily review them. The HiTask interface is built with an easy to use drag and drop calendar to schedule items and reshuffle or prioritize them as needed. Tasks can also be rearranged in groups or projects for added organization. The scheduling of meetings, reminders or notes...

Backpack refresher: brush up on your power user tips

37signals' online PIM service Backpack is known far and wide in part for its extreme simplicity. It offers everything you need with nothing you don't - but that doesn't mean it's lacking in the power user department. While it hasn't been updated in a while, 37signals maintains a Power Users archive page at the Backpack blog with a whole slew of tips and tricks that will likely serve as a great...

Reminder Fox - Scheduler and ToDo List for FireFox

I'm somewhat of a productivity zealot and I love any application that helps me stay on task. Reminder Fox is designed to do just that. One of the better Firefox extensions I've found, Reminder Fox sits quietly in the bottom left corner of the browser and lets you manage a to do list and schedule reminders. There are two tabs on Reminder Fox: Reminders and ToDos. When you schedule a reminder you...

Send yourself reminders with FutureMe

Chronically forgetful? Always making lists - and then forgetting to look at them? FutureMe might be just what the doctor ordered. FutureMe.org is a simple, no-frills web site with one purpose: helping you stay on top of your various obligations. Its usage is self-explanatory, but I'll break it down for you anyway: use the form to write a reminder to yourself, enter your email address, and select...
