Evernote has just added a powerful and helpful feature to its app: reminders. The feature works in Evernote for Mac, iOS, and the web.

Reminders are very straightforward: just go to the note you want a reminder on and add a date. Remember, since the to-do is really a note, you can easily add any details you want, such as where you need to go, and what you need to do when you get there.

Evernote Adding Date

The reminder is added to the reminders section of that notebook. Depending on your view, you can see the reminders for all notebooks or the notebook you are currently in.  The reminders can be reordered too

The alarm will go off in the app, or you can be reminded via an email.

Evernote iOS Reminders

Reminders are also synced across all the versions of the app that support this new feature, so set a reminder on your iPad and you’ll still get the alarm on your Mac.

Evernote’s new feature is great and will help people who collaborate more easily.  One thing I would like to see, though, is the ability to include a time as well as a date in the reminder. Otherwise, this is a solid addition to Evernote.
