    Just wondering.

    No it won’t work.

    the iPhone/iPad apps aren't in Intel code, so they definitely will never run on OSx.

    #4 As in, Mountain Lion's Reminders app.

    Incidentally, attempting to run Mountain Lion's Reminders app in Lion via Terminal causes a Fragmentation Error (11).

    Actually yeah, I've never really thought of it. You can run messages on Lion... so maybe. Let us know if you try.

    Hmm. That sucks.
    I really want to get rid of my current tasks solution and the OS X Reminders App would be a solid option.

    Messages was written to work in Lion. the final release won't, however,

    No, but you can access your reminders through iCal, and notes through Mail. (iCal you need to show it in the menus)

    That would be a segmentation fault.

    Anyway, Reminders undoubtedly depends on APIs, frameworks and/or libraries in Mountain Lion that don't exist in Lion. As such, when it tries to call them, it'll crash. Segfaults are typically what you get in that case.

    No, but iCal has reminders as a feature. All apple did with mountain lion was made it a standalone app, they did it with notes too!

    Since this is the Mountain Lion forum the OP is obviously talking about from Mountain Lion and not from iOS.

    iOS is derived from OS X so an argument can be made that the iOS Reminders app is already running on OS X.
