Have you ever had one of those moments where you think “I’m just going to leave this here so I remember to bring it with me.”, “Don’t worry, I’ll remember where that place is, I walked by it the other day”, or anything like “I’ll remember the phone number of that new pizza place”. Then, sometime later, you of course need to remember… but you can’t!? How about asking yourself (or significant other) anything along the lines of “Where did I put our passports/camping set/spare car key?” etc…

Finder Reminder is a tool which can solve all those problems!

Finder Reminder works using many proven principle of memory retention techniques including association and mnemonics . Remembering where something is becomes a breeze when you can link pictures, names, locations & descriptions to anything you can think of. In fact, even making the physical action to remember something (by entering it in Finder Reminder), increases your chances of remembering it later on!

If this all sounds a bit too involved, don’t worry, we’ve made it ridiculously quick and easy for anyone to keep track of almost anything using Finder Reminder!


The workflow is fast and simple:
✓ Create a Thing (or update a current one)
✓ Give your Thing a name, an optional location (using the GPS, custom location or pre-populated location list) and short description
✓ Pick an included icon, take a new photo from your camera or choose an existing one from your albums (Finder Reminder copies your photo from your album so even if you delete it from your phone, Finder Reminder will still have it.)
✓ Pat yourself on the back because you've been proactive and will remember whatever it is you wanted to!
