◆ FEATURES ◆

– Fast. Really fast.
Reminders are set as soon as you finish typing what to do, and when to do it.

– Natural date and time parsing
No awkward date pickers nor rigid date and time format to follow. Set due date and time by typing what is natural to you.*

“4pm” works just as fine as “4:00 PM” or “16:00”, and “Aug 22” works as well as “22 August” or “8/22”. Relative dates like “in 20 mins” or “in 6 months” work too.

Some examples:

– “Collect passport next Monday 4pm”
– “Make dinner reservation at 14:00 tomorrow”
– “Cancel subscription in 1 month”
– “Wish Sally happy birthday on Aug 22 at 8 AM”
– “Phone contract expires May 30 2014”

Due repeatedly notifies you of missed reminders until they are marked done or rescheduled, making sure things get done and your list never go stale.

– Fully optimized for keyboard-only operation
Power users can skip the mouse and trackpad. Show or hide Due, create reminders, reschedule them, mark them complete, delete them. Everything you need is a keyboard shortcut away.

– Reusable countdown timers
Precise to the second, they are perfect for timing your soft-boiled eggs, coffee brewing and tea steeping. Set them up once and reuse them forever.

– Powerful recurring reminders
Vitamins before bed each night? Pay rent every 2 weeks on Monday? Submit a report on the last weekday of the month? Yup.

– Keep reminders in sync across your Mac, iPhone and iPad
Due supports over-the-air sync through iCloud or Dropbox. Create a reminder on your Mac and it will be there on your iPhone and iPad.**

**Due must be launched for sync to take place. Sync on iOS requires Due for iOS (sold separately).

Search your reminders and timers. And if you don’t find what you want, press Return to create a reminder with your search term.

– Drag and drop to create reminders
Create reminders by dragging emails, calendar events, text, links and more to Due.

– Share reminders with drag and drop, or copy and paste
Send your friend a reminder via Mail, Messages or Twitter by dragging or copying it from Due. It even comes with a link so that your recipient can add that reminder to their own copy of Due.

– Optional Menu Bar, dockless operation
Run Due directly from your menu bar, badge it with unattended alerts, and take Due off your Dock if you like.

– Assignable alert sounds
Assign distinctive alert sound for each reminder; louder and longer ones for important reminders, and subtler ones for less critical reminders.

– Undo and Redo
Relax, it’s okay to make mistakes.

– Take control of your notifications
Customize how notifications behave—whether they display a notification, play a sound, bounces the icon or highlights the icon in the menu bar—when reminders and timers become due.

If you’re on OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, you can choose between Notification Center or Growl. If you have Growl installed (sold separately), you can also customize how notifications look with themes.
