Well, surprise, surprise. Here we are with another infamous case of ‘why didn’t Apple think of that?’ In case #1,559, we’re presented with a handy-little jailbreak tweak by the name of RemindMeLater. Its sole purpose in life is to increase the productivity of your procrastination efforts.

In other words, RemindMeLater adds a handy snooze button to your calendar events. And while it’s true that this feature is included in virtually every piece of calendar software known to man, this isn’t the first time that something so obvious has been left on Apple’s cutting room floor.

So how does it perform? Quite well I might add, but it’s not like we’re digging the English Channel, or painting a Picasso here. All that this tweak does is add a snooze button to your calendar reminders. Pressing that snooze button will give you an additional 5 minutes before the reminder pops up again. That’s it, nothing more, nothing less.

My only gripe with the tweak is its lack of settings. Upon downloading from Cydia, you’ll find an entry for RemindMeLater in your settings app. Sadly, you’ll be disappointed to see that it’s only a toggle to enable or disable the tweak. There are no settings to adjust the amount of time the snooze is valid for, or anything of that nature. Perhaps the developer is holding out on those features for a future update.

Other than that small gripe, the tweak works just as advertised, and I would think it should, considering it’ll slide $1.99 out of your pockets. And you better believe that there’s no snooze button for that.

  • saw that this morning. can’t justify the $2 without including settings. I can get Easy Reminders for free (w/ads 99¢ for no ads) which gives me buckets of options.

    • “like” the comment (: if there were some settings it would make this app much more appealing

    I was excited to see this until the part about only a 5 minute snooze. If I have to postpone an event in my life, it’s going to be for longer than 5 minutes. More like hours or days. 5 minutes only really makes sense for the alarm clock I’m waking up to and even that I set for a 10 minutes snooze.

    Surely they’ll update it with some settings. Thanks for the heads-up Jeff. I’ll keep an eye out for updates.

      Well said!

    for 2$ there are much better solutions that are available on the app store and doesn’t need a jailbreak..

    Beep Me is a good example:

      Beep Me is a handy tool but doesn’t serve the same purpose as RemindMeLater.

    Hi! Thanks for this cool app!!

    But, if there are more than one event, the snooze button is not available. Then there are only the two events among themselves.

    Is there any sulution?

    RemindMeLater appears to now be only $.99 via Cydia.

    Additionally, RemindMeLater does, now, have a section under Settings to change various things.

      I cannot locate this in the App Store. Where would I find this app…? i too am a former BB user and desperately need the “snooze” feature. I cannot believe after all the updates, this has not be included yet.

      • It’s not in the App Store. It’s in Cydia. You have to jailbreak your iPhone

  • rrjent

    Oh! Um… not sure how to do that lol! I just bought the iPhone 4.
