My task was to check out LaterDude Pro and give you an overview of it. I’m always up to checking out an app and seeing what I think and this app intrigued me. It’s a reminder app for those of us who need a little more direction and guidance, I’ll plead guilty now.
I can be so scattered when it comes to appointments, times, you name it. I’m always on the go, don’t sleep much, and my kids get so mad when I forget important events or appointments. I have finally started using my BlackBerry Calendar more, just to feel a bit more in the loop. LaterDude might just be the answer to my scattered thoughts.
Fabian Heuwieser designs apps that are useful or apps you find playful and genius. Some of the apps make you wonder why RIM never included them to begin with. I also would like to give you a short note of the apps Fabian has created. Not only does he have LaterDude and LaterDude Pro, he also has VibAndRing, WallpaperShuffle, TyperSpeed, BlinkWhileCall, and ForceRadioOn. He also has some fun free applications just for the storm such as Whippoh, ShaverBerry, BWatchDoggy, and BerryTorch.
To give you an idea of what LaterDude is, I’m going to list the definition and the features.LaterDude Pro is an application that reminds you to call, SMS or email someone. The efficiency of it is that it interacts with the system and creates a new event into the internal calendar or task application.Â After installation, LaterDude Pro is available for use on your device. It does not have an icon but is present on your system via the Menu in the following apps: Call Log, Messages, Text Messages and Contacts. You can find the user’s manual here.
I installed LaterDude Pro on my BlackBerry Tour 9630. It installed quickly and easily, and I rebooted my phone. Features are of course that reminders sit in the messages, email, texts, contacts, and the phone. When you access the menu in these applications, you will see at the top “Remind me later!” This is the Laterdude Pro. The first choice says: “What?” and gives you two choices, Calendar or Tasks. The next step is: “Remind as?” and the choices are Meet, Contact, Call, Email, and SMS. The next step is: “When?” and the choices are several ranging from 5 minutes to hours, days, and weeks all the way to 3 weeks. Now this can really make a difference. In the calendar, your reminder sits waiting to alert you.
I used it, and it works, alerts you so you don’t forget the little and important things like calling people back, recitals, appointments, meetings, etc. While listing things in the Calendar works, wouldn’t it be nice to have the “secretary” along side the schedule? One of the reasons I love my BlackBerry is because it is my companion, my “office”, and my entertainment. It’s not just a phone that keeps a portal to communication, it’s so much more.
If you could use a little more organization and reminders, then don’t miss out on this app. LaterDude Pro costs only $2.95 and is a one time fee. I recommend it so you don’t miss anymore events or call backs, be more productive and efficient, so you can have less time wondering why you didn’t have that v8. Give the usual response of “Later Dude” new meaning and make it happen.
You can purchase LaterDude in one of two locations.
