The biggest visual difference between iOS and Android has to do with Android’s widgets, or lack of widgets in iOS.
Widgets are a great way to increase productivity, but at the same time they destroys any chance of having a clean, consistent UI. And this, in a nutshell, is a big difference between Android and iOS.
There are many iPhone apps that are designed to replace widgets. Small, quick, they perform something specific in a really efficient way, and nothing more. I usually don’t use those simple apps and prefer the ones that provides a wider set of features, but there are exceptions.
Beep Me is a small app that is designed to create simple reminders instantly. It’s simple in the sense that it operates almost like a widget: one click will take you straight to the screen that will let you add a reminder with minimum clicks. On the other hand, Beep Me has a lot of features: configuring the time is very convenient, number of repeats, sounds, theme, there are really a lot of capabilities surrounding the area of creating instant reminders.
This is why I like Beep Me. It is well developed, it combines simplicity with flexibility. So if you are looking for a way to create reminders instantly without opening the calendar, or task applications – then Beep Me might suit your needs.
Oh, and it’s free. We all like free apps. Especially if they are good ones.
