Ideally it would be great if we were allowed to add entries to the Calendar app from within other apps. Just like we can add contacts to the Contacts database from our apps. That way you wouldn’t need to launch an app to see if there’s a reminder waiting for you. Although eventually when Apple releases the Push Notification Service we should be able to provide something like that.
Feature request noted. Thanks!bcarb commented
I guess I was viewing the reminder idea differently. For example, when I first added to the ImportantDates form, I put in someones birthday. In my case, I didn't care about the year - just the month/day. and I assumed I'd find a checkbox field that said "remind/notify me with a popup".
