rednimeR is designed to help you keep track of the things you have to do and to send you a reminder when the task is due.
Tasks are grouped into categories. You can choose which categories to show on the Task List Screen
Tasks can be broken up into steps. Each step can have its own due date, which is either a fixed date or a date relative to the task due date (a number of days, hours and minutes before or after the task due date). The step can be marked as completed when finished.
You could use this app to keep track of deadlines for work projects or homework assignments, to plan a wedding or even to help you cook the dinner!
Task List Screen
This lists all Tasks in due date order, grouped by category. Tasks in the default “No Category” are listed first.
