Rapidly approaching 500 new users this year, my free email and simple text message reminder app - Simply Remind Me - is earning a loyal following in the world.
In July, I had 131 new users that have signed up in 2023. As of today, I've trebled this to 466.
All of these new users are bringing great suggestions and feedback - particularly from a competitor's service that stopped working earlier this year.
I'm rolling all this feedback and suggestions into a complete overhaul of the "event experience" which I'm excited to preview today.
I've today released a major new version of my free email reminder app and simple text and phone call reminder app, Simply Remind Me.
This release has been nearly 4 months in the making and introduces some new features I'm excited to deliver to you, and some important bug fixes.
This article describes the new features and enhancements that are now live in Simply Remind Me.
Today, 14th May, I discovered that SMS messages sent from my Simply Remind Me app since 1st March were not being delivered by my SMS provider.
Because they were successfully accepted by the gateway, Simply Remind Me correctly deducted the credits from your account. But the messages failed to arrive at their intended handsets.
Updates for devices running the Linux operating system come in the form of packages. Using the Linux system’s package manager, you install new packages and upgrade them as new versions are released.
Now sure you can log onto each Linux device and run
apt update && apt upgrade, or
dnf update, depending on your distribution. But what if you have several – even hundreds – of devices to keep updated? And how do you know what new updates are available?
2021 started with much hope of vaccines to bring an end to the COVID-19 pandemic, alas it wasn’t enough.
A year – and three vaccines later – and there is no end yet in sight. Although hospitalisations are steady, despite the rising number of cases of the Omicron variant, so maybe there is a glimmer of hope for 2022.
As I reflect on the last year, I’ve made some achievements I’m proud of – both personal and professional.
It’s been four years since the last update to Simply Remind Me – my free e-mail and SMS (text message) reminders app. Since the COVID-19 pandemic started in 2020, sign-ups have increased significantly. It’s therefore a perfect time for a refresh and an update.
This blog post shows you a preview of the new-look Simply Remind Me – version 3 – launching soon.
It’s 3 years to the day since I made the first commit to what would become Blue Twilight – my open-source PHP photo gallery.
Today I’m delighted to announce the availability of Blue Twilight Cloud.
Google is the registry behind the new .dev TLD – the ultimate vanity domain for developers.
The .dev extension has historically been used by developers fudging their host files to create realistic-looking development environments. Now, .dev is open in Early Access Preview to allow the world to register their .dev domains.
It’s almost two years since I published the post on the Visual Studio IDE information message: “delegate invocation can be simplified.”
While reviewing some error messages in a new MVC project, I recently learnt something equally as simple and eye-opening.
It’s rare for commercial software developers, such as myself, to get to use the software we write. We rely on our users to report problems or suggest new features for the applications we develop.
Therefore when I read about a PHP development framework (Laravel) that looked so interesting I just had to try it out, I came up with the idea of an application where you tell it all the dates that are important to you, and it will send you e-mail or SMS text messages when those dates are coming up.
And so… Simply Remind Me was born.
