One of the all-time favorites on my homescreen is Due, a reminder app for iOS and Mac. In fact, I wrote a review of it back in 2011 and recommended it to everyone who’s looking for a simple, but efficient todo and reminder app. A few days ago Lin Junjie, the developer of Due, released the long-awaited 2.0 of my everyday companion with a new look and feel. I really like it and I’m pretty sure that I’ll keep on using Due for the next couple of years. But there’s one problem: My wife doesn’t use Due.
This resulted in this little web interface. It’s a simple way to create and share reminders for Due from the web. For this purpose, it will generate a custom URL, which could then be shared with someone else via Mail, WhatsApp and Threema (or Copy & Paste). When the recipient opens the URL, it takes him to Due, where it composes a new reminder with the chosen title and due date.

This was a fun little finger exercise for me, but my wife is actually using it. So, mission accomplished! If you’re curious about the code, check it out on CodePen.
