Reminders is a free application from Apple available on your Mac, your iPhone and iPad. Are you using it to the full potential?

Ellen will show you tips and tricks for using Reminders more efficiently.

Do you find yourself typing the same words, phrases, or blocks of text over and over again? TextExpander can help.
