There are tons of reminder services online today. Found via Orli’s blog, Resnooze is a new startup out of Israel that has created what might be the most simple and useful reminder service yet. Resnooze emails you reminders on the dates and frequencies you set.
To setup a reminder, you enter the email address to send the reminder to, the text of the reminder and the frequency that the reminder email should be sent. When you create the first reminder, an account is setup on Resnooze using your email address. This will allow you to manage all of the reminders in your account.
When the reminder arrives in your mailbox, you can adjust the reminder (change frequency, time, or delete) directly from the email making it easy to keep the reminders accurate. The site is supported by ads but I could see a simple freemium model working very well for Resnooze. A simple widget to display reminders in iGoogle, MyYahoo, MyAOL, etc. would also be a strong addition to the Resnooze product.
The other side of Resnooze is a Web site or blog embed option which allows site visitors to receive a reminder email to visit your blog or site at a later date. It’s like the most simple email marketing program ever.
Here’s a screenshot of the reminder setup screen:
Here’s what the Web embed option looks like (this could use some work):
