    In the Reminders app, is there any difference between reminders and tasks? Functionally they seem identical, so it's odd that they are separated. I'm trying to figure out which to use to suit my needs.

    thanks

    I've actually was wondering this myself. In an example would there be any advantages/disadvantages to creating 2 Tasks called Bill Pay and Appointments and then putting Reminders under the appropriate Task or just putting all Reminders under Reminders?

    Only thing I have found is that siri (at least here in the UK) can only set one of them...I can't remember which, but I think it's tasks...It just says it's unable to set one.

    Then 5 times out of 1o it goes right ahead and sets it anyway...:confused:

    I have something else I don't understand. On the Lists page I have the following.

    Why does it have Bookkeeping & Goodsell Development and how do I remove them?

    Think I figured it out. The other 2 are related to the email accounts and I cut them off in email settings settings and now they are gone.


    Also it loos like Reminders is just a Task. I renamed Reminders (no longer have Reminders) and everting stayed the same. You can add any Task and call it anything like Reminders, Reminding, Work, or whatever.
