Remind Me Later 1.2: UI Hints
So, you stumble upon this Remind Me Later thingy. You download the app and run it. Nothing happens. You look around the computer screen. Nothing. You run the app again. Still nothing. A couple minutes later, you notice the bookmark icon in your menu bar. Not the best user experience.
For version 1.2, I’ve added UI hints. The menu bar pulses blue when launched to make its location clear. When you add an event, the icon pulses blue when all goes well and red when something goes awry. Hopefully, these small visual hints will help people understand the app a bit quicker.
Remind Me Later is a very simple app, but even the smallest apps need design work. Also, it’s free. Give it a try.
