Reminder methods

Setting up Push Notifications

If you are using the iPhone app and have enabled the Push Notification service, your device will automatically show in the reminder methods section on the site (i.e., you don't need to add anything here, unless you'd also like to configure email, SMS, or instant messenger reminders).

Setting up Desktop Notifications

If you're using a supported browser (Chrome 20 or Safari 6, or later), you will see the Desktop Notifications reminder method listed. Turn this on to receive desktop notifications from your browser when you have the site open.
