    I just wish Apple could improve the reminders app. It needs a bit of an overhaul.

    They need to have the option so it has a number badge on the home screen to see how many to do items you have left.

    It needs to be sorted better, by alphabetical order or by priority.

    I would rather all your to do items no matter what title “work, personal” be under one page with the different colors representing the appropriate calendar like its done in some other applications like “To Do, or Busy Cal.”

    If any of this is already possible, please tell me. Ive checked and it doesn't seem like its possible. Just some thoughts for business or personal use.

    Yes, that a feature I would like. Just to be able to move each reminder and put it where you wish.

    hell i just want them to show up in order. If you have a big list and its off the page and you try to put a reminder in for tomorrow, it will show up at the very bottom not visible unless you scroll down (at least for me it does), the one for tomorrow should shoot to the top or at least where ever in the order it should be.

    Your absolutely correct. It seems so elementry that I am so surprised that it did not come like that from the start. Also to have no update to fix these is surprising to. Maybe its no big deal to a lot of people but as you siad, when you have to scroll down to the bottom to see an entry for tomorrow or you have to swip to the right to see the different calendars you have set is crazy.

    I'm thinking the reminders is going to get an overhaul sometime soon. It's an app that Apple has already invested quite a bit of marketing into and with some of these requests being so simple, it seems inevitable.

    I like the idea of the number of reminders left showing up on the app, that just seems logical.

    I still like the way Things works, compared to Reminders.

    I'd definitely like to see a badge icon for outstanding reminders.

    I want them to improve the relaibility of location based reminders. The few times I tried this (both when set to warn after laeving an area and when entering an area) it never worked properly. Although my iPhone has a GPS, it doesn't seem to be very accurate. :(
