Reminders do not syncronize

Hello,
I use reminders on iPhone, iPad and MacBook. All of them are connected to the same iCloud account.

When I create or modify a reminder on one device, I immediately find it on the other ones. So synchronization should work just fine.

But, when I check one reminder completed on one device, I still find it active in the other devices.

What can I do to find it completed also on the other devices?

Thanks,
Daniele

I've always noticed that issue too. Have no idea why it does that. I would use it more often if it worked properly.

This has been a constant annoyance/problem for a LONG time. Seems like someone at Apple would get tired of completing/checking off a Reminder on their iPhone just to find out on their Mac and do something about it.

Besides Reminders I use it for grocery list. Get to the store and know items are missing. Have to add and delete faux items to 'force' it to sync. Very annoying.

I only use Reminders on one iDevice (my phone), because they don't sync well.

If you do have them synched, and add a reminder on one device, it won't even show up on the other device until you launch the Reminders app – which defeats the purpose (as you won't get the alert on that device unless you remember to open the app first).
