Birthday reminders for the whole family

Everyone loves birthdays. They represent milestones in our lives and mark our transitions from childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and the golden years.  Remembering someone’s birthday is a good way to let them know that you’re keeping them in your thoughts. With an extended family, or an extended social group, it can be difficult to keep track of everyone’s special day. It’s also difficult to make sure that everyone in the family remembers each other’s birthdays.

Cronote is proud to announce that we now support yearly reminders. This makes it easy to schedule birthday reminders, up to 10 years in the future!  The feature can be accessed from the New Reminder dashboard by clicking on “Recurring” and selecting “yearly” from the repeat drop-down as seen in the picture below.


Here we’ve scheduled a reminder for our aunt’s birthday on February 6th. It’ll go out on Feb. 6th 2017, 2018,…all the way to 2027. The power of Cronote is that we can send this same reminder to every member of the family. We can create a family group, and schedule set it as the destination of our reminder.


You can add and remove family members to this group whenever you like. The reminders will go out to the current members of the group when her birthday arrives.

We removed our iOS app from the App Store about a year ago in order to rebuild it in a modern fashion. We’re happy to announce today that the app has been released and is available for download on the App Store.

The app provides free push-notification reminders between iOS devices. It’s the only app that lets you schedule a push-notification.

The app also includes a number of features requested by our users, including:

  1. Message templates: Store commonly used reminder messages.
  2. Message variables: Automatically insert the recipient’s name and appointment time into the reminder.
  3. Recurring reminders: Send reminders daily, weekly or monthly.
  4. Group reminders: Easily select more than one recipient, and save groups such as a family or customer list.
  5. Picture reminders: Add an image with message overlay to make a memorable reminder.
  6. Reminder offsets: Schedule reminders relative to an appointment time. For example, “20 minutes before appointment” or “1 day before appointment.”
  7. Easily add a picture to your reminder using your Photos library or your camera.

We encourage all of our users to download the app and try it out.
