About Simply Remind Me

Simply Remind Me does exactly what the name says – it sends you e-mail and SMS (text message) reminders of upcoming events you add to your account.

Hi, I’m Andy Heathershaw – a .NET and PHP software developer based in the UK – and I created the Simply Remind Me app because – put simply – I’m forgetful.

In early 2017, the due date of my car’s MOT health-check passed by without me noticing. It was two weeks later before I did notice – a tiny mistake that could have cost me £1,000!

From that point, I decided I needed some kind of reminder when important dates are approaching – so I created Simply Remind Me.

I’ve worked with some of the brightest tech companies to bring you this service and, best of all, it’s free*!

To Simply Remind Me, something you want to be reminded about – such as your car MOT expiring – is an “event.” You can add any number of reminders to each event, using a combination of e-mail and SMS text messages.

For example, you could receive an e-mail reminder a month before your MOT expires, allowing you to book it in, followed by a text message reminder a couple of days before the test is due.

To make things easier, I’ve even built some custom templates for some of the most common, every-day events you want to be reminded about.

* E-mail reminders are free. SMS messages work on a credit basis – you purchase credits to add to your account, and SMS reminders deduct from your credit balance. Credits start from just 6.9p per credit, and are purchased in “packs.”
