Benjamin De Cock,

The same reaction happens every time a geeky friend sees Reminders on my home screen, which usually sounds like "lol wtf". But after trying (and actually creating) many todo apps, Reminders remains my weapon of choice. Sure, it's not the most powerful tool ever and it looks a bit gross, but:

It's a good, simple app that has been reliable for me. In fact, built-in apps often come with the same benefits. That's why I usually stick with them, unless a third-party alternative proves to be way, way better.
