Wye Valley, United Kingdom – Electric Pocket, the company that brought the famous BugMe! app to mobile devices over a decade ago, today announces an easy new way to give yourself a persistent reminder that something needs to be done. The company’s new Nag app for iPhone offers a simple control screen for setting a quick reminder for yourself – tap on the 5 minute button, and Nag will sound its alarm in five minutes, and will continue nagging each minute thereafter until it is silenced.
“Just give me 5 more minutes” is often heard throughout homes and offices as people need a bit more time to wrap up what they’re currently doing before jumping onto something new, but too often that “5 more minutes” comes and goes with the person completely forgetting what they were supposed to do. With Nag on their iPhone, they can simply tap on a single button to set a nagging alarm that will jog their memory over and over. Nag’s novel controls lets users press a single button to set an alarm at the top of the hour, or at a set time – such as in 5 minutes, or an hour from now. To fine-tune the alarm time, they can simply press the time buttons again to add to the elapsed time.
When the alarm time comes, Nag will sound its alarm – and will continue its nagging every minute until you acknowledge the alarm.
“Nag is the perfect answer to the ‘just 5 more minutes’ or ‘I’ll leave in a hour’ situations we all face – and forget – daily!” says Iain Barclay, Electric Pocket’s chief products officer. “It’s also a great way to remember to plug the parking meter or make sure your meetings don’t overrun.”
