If you are a busy person like I am, you are undoubtedly inundated with an overwhelming volume of tasks that need to be completed. With a daily To-Do list that is a mile long, it is only a matter of time before a task (or ten) slips through the cracks. A perfect example of this in my life is remembering to take my dogs out to “do their business.” On a day when I am working from home I end up juggling numerous tasks, so I find myself being constantly being reminded of my lack of attention in the form of a “puppy present” on my carpet. Sure, I would love to be furious at my dogs, but in all reality it was my fault for not managing my time better.
HiFutureMe brings the ease of text messaging to setting up alerts. What if you could set up an alert for your future self now? You know you’ll need to turn the chicken over in an hour so why not send a message to your future self?
HiFutureMe launches instantly, and gets right to the point. Write your message, select a time and hit “Send”. That’s all, there is no fluff. The only bells and whistles are ones you’ll hear when you are awarded the “greatest punctuality” and “remembers things best in the world” award (look it up).
My example from earlier is a perfect illustration of how this could be a lifesaver for the scatterbrained. It seems impractical to go through all of the effort to schedule a calendar entry on my phone for every two hours, reminding me that the dogs need to heed the “call of the wild.” In enters HiFutureMe, where I can spend the two seconds necessary to setup a message, then forget about it… well at least until there reminder goes off.
Probably the best feature of this program is its pricetag, because you can get it for absolutely free. Trust me when I say that you need to download it now. It has already saved me from having to spend time cleaning “natural earthtones” from my carpet.
You are more than welcome to look over some of the screenshots to see how HiFutureMe operates, and then download it for yourself.
