How it works


  • 1. You have got a missed call or a message.
  • 2. Some time passed (Remind period) and you didn't pay attention to missed event(s) yet.
  • 3. The reminder checks if it's good time to notify or it's late night, for example (Time restriction in configuration).
  • 4. If it's good time it shows "You have" window on the screen and plays the alarm sound.
  • 5. It repeats alarm sound/vibrating after some time passed (Remind period) again and again (Remind period) until it brings your attention to the unnoticed event(s).

Setup and configuration


To use Best Reminder you should install and start the application, then configure the needed options (select the reminder sound you like, repeat interval,etc) and activate it. When Best Reminder service is activated there is no need to keep the application opened. You can close it not to waste your device memory.

Settings:

  • Reminder - Shows if the Reminder service is working currently or not.
  • Remind about - Allows you to select which event to monitor and remind about unnoticed
  • Remind period - If you have got a missed call or a new sms and you haven't heard the initial sound (and haven't checked for a missed call or a message) then Best Reminder will show "You have" window and play the alarm after the time you specified passed and will repeat the alarm with the specified interval until you notice it.
  • Sound - The application will play the selected sound in order to bring your attention to a missed call or a message. Sound notification respects silent profile. If the currently activated profile is silent then Reminder won't play its sound notification. Sound volume is taken from your current profile.
  • Time restriction - Of course it would be highly annoying when you receive a message at night and Best Reminder notifies you about it the whole night. That's why you can set up the period when the application is allowed to notify you only (enable "Time restriction" to and in "Remind from" and "Remind to" fields fill in the period when the application is allowed to notify you.)
  • Turn backlight - If turned on then the device backlight is on when it's time to notify you. Please note that if your device keyboard is locked then, even if you activated this option, your backlight won't be on until your keyboard is unlocked.
  • Vibrating alert - if enabled provides device vibrating notification. Vibrating alert respects your current profile. Vibrating alert notification will be used by Reminder only if current profile allows device vibrating.
  • Blink keypad - When you have a missed event your device keys will blink (if your device hardware supports it)
  • Show Extra Info - Shows extra information in notifier window. Last missed call number / date / contact person and last unread message number and 2 lines of the message text

Please note that if your device keyboard is locked then 'turn backlight' and 'blink keypad' options might not work, depending on hardware of your device.


Behind the screen


  • Best Reminder is smart enough to notify about new incoming messages or missed calls only and doesn't annoy you when there's already noticed by you, but unread messages or missed calls.

  • When you activate the service it remembers the current state and notifies you only about new events. Also if you've got, say, 1 missed call and 1 unread message and then read the message only the program assumes you have seen all unnoticed events, saves the current state and will notify you on NEXT new missed events only.

  • Sound notification respects silent profile. If the currently activated profile is silent then Reminder won't play its sound notification.

  • Vibrating alert respects your current profile. Vibrating alert notification will be used by Reminder only if current profile allows device vibrating.

  • Service based application. Best Reminder is professionally made application and consists of configuration application you can start like any other application and a service module (always-in-memory process). When you have configured the settings you can activate the service and close the configuration application. The service will do all job using really small amount of memory, system resources and absolutely transparent to user. Just configure and turn it on one time and you can forget about it.
