    Omg! This app is ridiculous! Think about it you need an app to remind you of things so you don't miss appointments or waste time . Now you need another app to pick an app for you that reminds you of things because you can no longer make trivial decisions you need another app to take up storage and make trivial decisions for you. Too many apps to begin with now adding one more will make it better? No how bout simplifying your life? Get rid of all these apps except for one and CALL it a day. Who needs a caruosal of revolving apps that all do the same things?
