    I had removed reminders from my dock as I thought it was just a stagnant app that I had to bring up each time to check. Had no idea of the power behind it in the other applications. Thank you!

    Where is the reminders app? Do you get it from the app store or is it already on my system when I download mountain lion?

      It is something you get when you install Mountain Lion.

    Hi Gary,
    Thanks for all your great episodes on Apple. Just one quick question – would reminders work appropriately as a task/to do manager like Things/Wunderlist etc.?
    All the best, Kolja

      That all depends on what you want from a task/to do manager. For some it will work fine, for others they will want other features. For some people a simple text document works fine. Try it and determine if it fits your needs.

    Thanks very much. Any idea how to import tasks from Todo into Reminders?

      Depends on your situation. It might happen automatically when you upgrade. But I wouldn’t count on it. You probably have to re-enter them manually. I’d save them all out since there are no to-do items in Calendar in MLion, so there is not “from” to go “to” Reminders.
