Remember lets you stash distractions away for later
You bind it to a hotkey (⌥⎵ by default) and whenever something unexpected pops up -- say you suddenly realize you need to stock up on milk -- you hit the hotkey, then type buy milk +1h and hit return. An hour later, you'll get reminded that you need to go out and buy some milk.
- buy milk +1d sets a reminder for a day from now. Other modifiers include "m" for "minute", "h" for "hour", "w" for "week" and "M" for "month".
- buy milk @4:30pm sets a reminder for 4:30 in the afternoon. If it's already past 4:30pm, then the reminder will be set for the following day.
- buy milk @10am sat #groceries sets a reminder for 10am on the following Saturday. Additionally, it tags the reminder with the "groceries" tag.
- buy milk @sat +1w #groceries sets a reminder for 1 week from the following Saturday.
- buy milk @10am mon *weekly* sets a weekly recurring reminder starting the following Monday at 10am.
- buy milk @10am mon *every 2 weeks* sets a bi-weekly recurring reminder start the following Monday at 10am. Recurring entries have their due dates reset when you archive them. This means that hitting ⌫ on a recurring entry changes its due date to the next recurrence.

Currently, macOS Catalina is the only supported Operating System. E-mail me if you want support for another OS so I can gauge interest.
- Auto-update support
- Calendar and Reminders.app integration
- Notifications don't persist: Apple currently doesn't expose any APIs for requesting "alert"-style notifications so you have to manually go to "System Preferences" -> "Notifications" -> "Remember" and select the "Alerts" notification style.
Remember does not collect any data from its users nor monitor activities or actions you perform within the application. This means everything that you do with the application is private to you and is never shared with the developers or third parties. Since there is no data collection, there is no data retention of any kind.
