At first I could not figure out how to change the category. I guess it was too easy for me because it turns out you can change the category by simply typing in the field. This is a great way to separate your items such as work and personal or by subject like technology, languages, math etc”¦

Once you have a bunch of questions and categories they will be displayed like this:

    Nah, I'm more inclined to have something that simply pops us something with a text of my own just to remember of something. After reading the notice for a number of times, I would quickly have the option to dismiss that specific warning.

    More. It would be useful if it was like the hassleme website, i mean, able to hassle you in a random period of times so you would be used to the fixed intervals.

    It could be something to show up out of my tray for a few seconds and, if i wanted to hold it for a long time i would have to click on it but, if i didn't anything, it would disapear automatically on an specified number of seconds i could configure..

    Have tried something in the past but nothing that would make me stick to them.

    cheers!
