@dazinism Hey, thanks for this. I'm in a hurry so I haven't looked at the links but I suspect that all those apps have reminders *for events* but not reminders in the style of Google Calendar reminders, which are their own type of event.
What I'm really looking for is the UX of first-class Reminders in Google Calendar on my phone: a (potentially repeating) notification which pops up at a given time, is snoozable, and doesn't go away until dismissed. This is not an easy thing to find.
@dazinism Currently I'm using aCalendar+ (paid, even) with DAVx5 syncing it to a back end on my little home server, btw.
None of the apps I've found, to-do apps, notification apps, etc, offer the same UX of Reminders in gcal which really works well for my brain and integrates well with the phone OS.
So that's why I'm thinking about writing it. Of course given life factors that's a LOT harder than it sounds.
@dazinism Hey, thanks again. I've tried Tasks, it doesn't have the right UX.
Google extended Google Calendar to have something called Reminders, which are sort of like Events but not really, thus not caldav compatible.
None of the f-droid To-Do/Task apps I've tried replicate the UX of gcal Reminders. "Repeat Me" is closest, but it's beta quality and buggy.
I suspect the answer is either in a reminder app I haven't yet found, or it doesn't exist.
