    Anyone know how to set alerts that are not just daily, weekly or monthly which are offered in app?
    I have monthly to pay certain bills etc., that usually work OK, from the 'Reminders' built in app, but I need to do an alert for Monday/Wednesday/Friday/ but every week rather than set them every week individually. Is there a way of doing that so it can alert me 3 times a week, indefinitely, or is that only on a 3rd party app?
    Anyone know if it can be done using the usual calendar or reminder app?
    Thanks

    You can try using Siri to specify a custom repeat pattern when you are creating a reminder or an event.

    Oh right, so just say exactly that and see what occurs? Thanks, I'll try that

    OK It's only showing the one. I asked for repeated reminders every Mon/Wed/Fri, but only shows one reminder for Monday, and in the reminder it says repeat 'never', so I don't think it can cope with that one

    under repeat select custom. then select weekly, every 1 week, and select Monday Wednesday and Friday. It will only show one reminder at a time. Once you mark the reminder as complete, the next one appears

    You're a star, thank you!

    Interestingly, some of my 'monthly' ones now say 'custom' too in the list, and the older ones say 'monthly', Is the custom a new addition with last iOS?
