Are you planning on adding a simple alarm on notes? Not an integration with calendars or anything fancy, just a simple alarm.

Thank you!

P. S.: I love this app ;)

    Hi Marco,

    we have evaluated the idea of adding alarm or calendar support, but it seems to us a little unnecessary for a writing/note app.
    Do you plan to use an alarm for a specific note ( Groceries, todos, work related notes, ... ) ?

    Yes, exactly the ones you wrote :) I thought about two ways to implement it:
    1. By adding a button near the "info", "share" and "delete" button or
    2. Using markup. For example ° followed by a date, or date and time

    But anyway for me it's nothing crucial :)

    Hey Danilo,

    Just wanted to second this. I use alarms for to-do lists, which I used to make in Evernote quite often. Would be a great little feature to have and would save me from using the stock iOS Reminders app, which I don't like very much.

    Keep up the good work!

    Simple reminders would be great; for example to be added with the hyperlink format:
    like: [Christmas](reminder:2016-12-25T10:00)
    This notification could be shown as "Christmas", and can open the right note at the right line when tapped
    IF the reminder is added to a check list, maybe it could be possible to mark as "complete" from the rich iOS 10 notification

    What do you think? :)

    I'd also love alarms / notifications when a due date was set inside a note. I love Bear and I am trying to extend it not just for note taking but also for my Todos as well.

    Very interested in a way to add a simple reminder/alert for my todo's. I will be following this thread.

    That would be awesome!

    P.S. Is there any roadmap for Bear improvements?

    I'd like a calendar as part of Bear - it's the one feature that I really miss from Day One - being able to click a date on the calendar and see the posts made on that day.

    @ jxh... Now that would be a great feature. Thanks for suggesting it. Hopefully Danilo & Crew can figure an easy way to implement it.

    Would ADORE a reminder/alarm feature for todos. Love the app but I’m such a forgetful person.
