Now that I’ve actually got an iPhone 4S to use on a regular basis, I’ve been giving Siri a lot of attention. The other day I happened upon this post from the Remember The Milk blog that got my mind buzzing.
Remember the Milk (“RTM”) is an online todo list service (and it’s available on multiple platforms including mobile). I’ve recently adopted it as my default to do list service and I’m pleased to report I’m getting a lot of value from it.
What’s rather cool, though, is that you can connect Siri to RTM.
This is particularly useful for me. Throughout the day I am forever remembering stuff that I need to do. Sometimes they’re stupid little tasks, other times they’re important points that I don’t want to forget. I usually do. Unless I write them down. Or email myself. Or use some todo app that I never read again.
So I’ve committed to RTM. And I’ve got Siri. I’ve connected them both so all I do now is tell Siri (words to the effect of):
“Remind me to buy some sausage rolls” *
Siri then brilliantly translates your text, asks for confirmation and then pushes the reminder straight into your RTM todo list.
I’ve been using it loads this week. Brilliant!
Here’s the RTM video demonstrating the functionality:
