Mind Jogger - App Review



This is the classic time of year for making resolutions to change... but how many of us manage to follow through?

The Mind Jogger App may well be just what you need to make the difference.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
The home screen contains a big '+'; hit this and get started.

The first (very obvious) thing is to pick a title for the reminder. This can be anything you want... just remember what it means to you. Next is to decide whether you want the notification to be random or at regular intervals (in which case you can set the time and periodicity). Now set the reminder sound you want or, in my opinion, the best option of silent (you will then be reminded by a subtle (and recognised only by you) memory jogger.

This is the first App I have come across that comes anywhere close to mirroring the functions of the MotivAider

Cost
The basic App is absolutely free; you can upgrade to the premium version to get more comprehensive statistics, especially of complete 'jogs'.

Indispensability
We all need help remembering things; when it comes to changing habits, this is even more necessary.

Dependability
The App is designed for the iPhone but works fine on an iPad in 1x and 2x modes.

Security
There are no issues with the App but be careful not to get distracted by your alerts.

ACIDS Test Rating:

Make 2014 the year you keep your New Year resolution(s).

  1. The developer advises that there has been an update to version 3.1.1 of the App.

    This includes the following enhancements and alterations:

    Fixed a database bug that caused a crash for some users. Because of that bug, you may have lost your jogs from previous versions, and we again apologize for this inconvenience.
