The Reminders app on the iPhone makes it possible to organize several lists of things you need to remember. Creating a new list in Reminders is relatively straightforward, since there's a giant plus (+) symbol right in the app. For users of Reminders, there will also come a time when lists must be deleted.
In iOS you can share Reminders lists with other iCloud users, which can be a useful tool for collaborative efforts. Say you and a group of friends are getting ready to go on a camping trip and you have a list of items that still need to be gathered. You can share this list with the group and everyone can edit it and mark items as completed. Here's how to do it on the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch:
- The first thing you need to do in order to share a reminder list is turn on Reminders in your iCloud settings. Go to Settings -> iCloud and make sure the toggle next to Reminders is on.
- Go to Reminders and create your list. You can set alerts by location or by time. So you could set "Pick up fuel for the stove" to alert whenever someone is is near an REI store, etc.
Creating new lists in the Reminders app can help keep everything organized. One of the great features of iOS is the capability to create reminders from content in other apps, or by dictating a reminder to Siri. iOS automatically puts these reminders into a default list. When first starting up iOS the default list is set to "Reminders".
Reminders on iOS provides an integrated way to keep track of to-do items and lists. Thanks to iCloud, lists can be shared with another person. Not only can a shared list be viewed by others, but the list can be edited as well. This means those with iCloud or using Family Sharing can actively collaborate on lists. In order to share lists, you must be signed into iCloud and the Reminders app must be enabled within iCloud settings.
The stock Reminders app in iOS continues to improve. Apple has added many features including geofencing and Siri integration to the built-in app for lists on iPhone. Many users don't realize there's an easy way to organize their reminders into separate lists. Reminders supports multiple lists that can be synced over iCloud. Setting up multiple lists all begins with creating a new list.
