For mobile minds on the move, portable reminders are often a must-have tool. But where to find such tools and how to use them in a cross-platform way (email and SMS) is not 1-click obvious.
My friend, CC, found this out when she wanted to help her kid at college remember to test her blood and take her meds before she risked an episode. Daughter was always a few steps short of overload, and so mobile it seemed there was no one good way to prompt her even if Mom was willing and able to set her own alarms and sit at her desk pressing "Send" 4x per day. (Yes, Mom could insist that her offspring manage the problem for herself, but failure is not an option here.)
Each tool she looked at had its limits, and only some of them would work if either Mom or kid was unplugged from the Net. When CC came up empty after several searches for multi-model cross-platform repeating auto-reminder tools, my own Internet Bloodhound kicked in.
