    So I was disappointed that when adding a new reminder, you have to associate a time with the date. I just wanted to be able to have a due date, not a time for specific tasks.

    I was just playing in iCloud on the web, and if you add a new reminder in Calendar (click on the settings gear, NEW REMINDER), you can give a task a due date. Open it on the iPhone, and it''ll have a "due" field in addition to the "remind me" field. Thus, you don't have to specify a time for a task.

    But I can't replicate this on the phone itself. Adding a new task doesn't give you the "due" option, just the "remind me" option. Thus, I have to specify a time for each task.

    Or am I somehow missing that option?

    I keep forgetting to post about this.

    I use Windows Live Calendar, but the rest is the same. I can set a due date on the web site, but there's no way to do it on the phone.

    I don't need an alert for a reminder but I do need due dates. I use the "Reminders" app as a To-Do list.

    If you want a reminder for a specific date and not time then just set the day and then time for 12:00am. It's exactly the same as apps like Calendar that allow just a due date.
