There is nothing worse than forgetting something, especially if that something important affects more people than yourself.
I have been using Evernote for a few months now and it is an awesome tool and helps me out a lot. It very rarely happens, but in some cases like today, it would be nice if I had some kind of alert for a particular to-do list item. Something that will audibly and visually grab my attention whether it is on my iPhone or my computer.
As far as I am aware Evernote does not provide such a feature. I will give it some research, but for now my immediate solution is going to be the Reminders app for iOS. It has the ability to sync with my Outlook.com calendar, so if push comes to shove I still have some way of being reminded about that all important item.
