With Google Inbox going away can anyone recommend a good app for reminders?
I merged my reminders and to do list to todoist - it's been fantastic and has really helped my productivity.
If you need Google Inbox type reminders for mail, Gmail has a snooze function.

Is the $36 price tag worth it for the premium version to enable reminders? I am todoist but purely for my to do list at the moment

I haven't found it worth it for notifications alone. With Premium you can use labels, have projects with contributors etc etc, all of which I've used once.

As a simple to do/reminder list the free tier is more than adequate.

They recently increased their pricing which does make it more expensive, I added 3 years to my sub just before they did that, so I'll re-consider when that expires.

So does Everynote (paid) and OneNote (Free), they also have much better organising and search capabilities. Also the ability to create multiple notebooks with sections / tags.
you asked for suggestions, we give. you're free to use whatever suits you, paid or free versions.

so, a new project has come across my table that will mean a lot of site surveying for a project. i am looking for an android app that can take photos and provide me with a space to save the name on 1 screen. added benefit would be to add some notes before saving, and then being able to use in windows

Any ideas

It is basically the perimeter of a facility that needs to be suveyed. We need to take pics, and then make notes on which gates have turnstyles for entrance and which can accomoodate wheelchairs etc. so this /\ could work

An app called Auditbricks should be able to do that, it's for project management.

Really enjoying Neutron Music Player.

I like the quirky oldschool winamp-ish kinda interface and loads of customisation & options.
