You can set them up in your calendar app, a dedicated to-do list app, and there are some apps that exist only to serve up reminders when you need them. Even some note taking apps have reminder functionality built-in. We’ll take a look at the best reminder apps for Android here!

BZ Reminder is a very simple to-do list app. You can set reminders and then the app reminds you when it's time. The app has a robust, but short list of features. You can color code tasks and reminders for easier organization. Additionally, it comes with Android Wear support, alerts, recurring tasks (for taking out the garbage every week), and even set hourly reminders for things like drinking water. It also has widgets, a simple calendar included, and more. The app isn't as complex as the big names in this space. However, it's one of the best simple reminder apps for personal use.

Google Keep

Google Keep is probably the best note taking app available right now. It's also about two or three feature updates away from being a to-do list app also. It features a collaboration features that let you share notes with others. You can also take text, list, photo, audio, and video notes. The reminders features is fairly simple, but effective. You can set notes to pop up as notifications at certain times or places. For instance, you can make your shopping list note pop up when your GPS indicates that you're at your local grocery store. It also saw a major redesign in late 2018 that makes it even more pleasant to look at.

GTasks

Price: Free / $4.99
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
GTasks is one of the unique reminder apps. It syncs with both Google Tasks as well as TickTick. The Google Talks portion is excellent, simple, and syncs between devices. The TickTick integration very closely mimics the actual TickTick app (listed below). You can go with either one. They both do the same basic features. The pro version of GTasks goes for $4.99 but it only covers the Google Tasks stuff. Those with TickTick subscriptions can also also use GTasks as a replacement. You can find those prices in the TickTick section.

Rembo

Price: Free
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Rembo is a bot style reminders app. It's something a little bit different. Basically, you ask the bot to reminder you to do stuff. The bot calls you with your reminder when it's time. You can see an organized feed of all of your reminders as well if needed. The app also features jokes and motivational quotes as a little added bonus. It honestly doesn't do much that other apps on the list don't also do. However, it's one of the more unique presentations we've seen in a reminder app. It's also entirely free, at least at the time of this writing.

TickTick

TickTick is an up and coming to do list app. It has a lot of features, including reminders, recurring tasks, widgets, various customization options, and even a calendar. TickTick rounds out the experience with Material Design, syncing between devices, collaboration with other TickTick users, and more. It works great for a variety of situations. However, it works best in a household or work environment where multiple people use the same app. The free version is more than good enough for personal use. The pro version runs for $27.99 per year and it's mostly for businesses.

To Do List

Price: Free / $2.99
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
To Do List is a simple little to do list app. Thankfully, that's all it needs to be. You can create tasks quickly and that includes recurring tasks like paying bills or taking out the trash. Additionally, you can group tasks into categories for easier organization. It also syncs with Google Tasks. That means it's easy to switch devices and see the same task list. It looks and works a bit like Wunderlist actually. It's free to download and use with the pro version going for $2.99. It's definitely one of the more solid reminder apps.

Todoist

Price: Free / $29 per year
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Todoist is among the best to do list apps. It's powerful, stylish, and it works really well. Along with the app, it comes with a Chrome extension and a native PC app. That way you can stay synced up everywhere. It supports most of the basic features you'd need in a to do list app. The only downside is that the actual reminders part is a premium feature. You can still view your to-do lists in both the app and widget format. We would've liked at least a single reminder per task in the free version. We only recommend this one as a reminder app if you plan on going premium with it anyway. Those looking for free options should check out the other apps on this list.

READ OUR BEST LIST HERE!
Personal assistant apps are all the rage right now. The popular ones include Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, Microsoft's Cortana, and Samsung's Bixby. All of these personal assistant apps are also good reminder apps. You simply engage with them and ask them to remind you to do something at a certain time. They usually comply without any hassle. Assistant is probably the best one here and works on most Android devices. Alexa is right up there but only works on Amazon devices. Cortana works on most things but it's a little incomplete while Bixby is the one we'd recommend for Samsung owners (assuming they don't already use Google Assistant).
