COL Reminder app helps keep all of your appointments straight

by Caitlin M. Foyt

COL Reminder is a reminder application for your Android phone that keeps you from forgetting the important happenings in your life.

If you're the kind of person who has a lot on your plate, or perhaps has poor short-term memory, this app can help you to keep track of important happenings, such as upcoming appointments, when your parking meter is expected to expire and that you're supposed to call your mom and wish her a happy birthday.

The app has a very clean and simple interface, which makes COL Reminder easy to navigate. These reminders are easy to program, and give you a variety of options for how you would like to be notified, including ringtones, vibrations and pop-ups. The app also allows users to manage multiple reminders simultaneously.

From the Main Menu, COL gives you the option of three different types of reminders: Miscellaneous, Parking Time and Phone Call. Miscellaneous can be used to remind you to do just about anything: Take your medication, cash a check, return your library books, get a haircut, etc.Your Parking Timer notifies you when time is close to running out on your meter, which actively keeps tickets from appearing on your windshield. The Phone Call reminder logs when you need to make a call and whom you are supposed to call.

This is the kind of app that once you get a handle on how it works, you could find a use for on a daily basis.
