Hi all,

Are there any good apps that will keep reminding you about an event until you dismiss it? i.e. every 5 minutes until the time of the event?

I keep missing events because the Calendar only notifies once, and generally pretty softly too.

I would recommend Reminders instead. It does the snooze you want, but it is every 15 minutes. Sounds like you're looking for a reminder anyway, not a calendar event.

Fantastical and Calendars 5 both have a snooze function for calendar notification. I believe Calendars 5 is only 15 or 30 min (I cant remember but only 2 intervals). Fantastical opens the app and you can choose I believe 5-6 snooze times or set a custom one. I like Fantastical's better because of the customized snooze time and many more choices.

It keeps bugging you until you complete whatever it is that you need to complete.

I looked at Due, it's a reminder application not a calendar app correct?

I'm on a corporate Exchange server and I find that I miss some meetings because iOS isn't persistent enough with alarms.
