It’s Done! App Helps Users Recall the Things Everyone Forgets
Houston, Texas – A unique app, called It’s Done, is helping people recall the things everyone forgets. For instance, ten minutes after leaving the house, the thought occurs, “Did I lock the door?” Better go back and check. Everyday routine tasks, like locking the door or taking a vitamin or turning off the stove, are quickly done without much thought, but then easily forgotten. That’s what makes it difficult to recall later whether the task was actually completed. But It’s Done saves the day.
Developed by A.J. Lester & Associates, It’s Done app for iPhone/iPad/iPod and Android devices helps users confirm with certainty whether they locked the door, took their vitamin, turned off the stove, or completed other routine tasks. For people with occasional forgetfulness, as well as those with short-term memory loss, It’s Done instantly confirms whether everyday tasks are done without having to double-check or worry. The app can even notify loved ones and caregivers that a task has been done.
There are thousands of calendar and task apps that remind users to do things. But routine tasks, like closing the garage door or turning off the oven, take little thought and don’t require scheduling on a calendar or putting them on a to-do list. So the real problem isn’t remembering to do everyday tasks–it’s recalling at a later time, with certainty, whether those tasks are actually done. This is the primary purpose of the It’s Done app and what sets it apart from all other apps on the market.
With the It’s Done app, users simply check-mark “Done” routine everyday tasks (lock the door, turn off the stove, etc.). Later, when the uneasy thought occurs, “Did I remember to…?”, a quick look at the app confirms whether or not the task is done. The need to re-check, second-guess, or worry is eliminated.
A potentially life-saving feature of the It’s Done app is its ability to automatically generate a text message or email to notify others when a task is done. So within seconds of taking a daily medication and check-marking It’s Done, a loved one or caregiver can receive a text or email confirming the task is complete. No need to worry or call.
The It’s Done app is designed with an intuitive interface that aids the memory process. Tasks first appear with an empty check-box and message “Task Awaiting Completion”. When a task is check-marked done, a bright green check-mark appears with a “click” sound and phone vibration. These visual, audible, and tactile cues reinforce confirmation of each completed task. A timestamp automatically confirms when a task is done. The app tracks the number of times a task is done and all completed tasks are stored in the app’s history for review at any time.
It’s Done! also has a task reminder alert that notifies users at the appointed time, helpful for prescribed medication times, important phone calls, and other time-specific tasks.
The creator of It’s Done, Howard “A.J.” Lester, points to the vital public service the app fulfills. “Everyone forgets whether they did something every now and then,” Lester said, “and, for those people, It’s Done is a fun and handy app for confirming stuff is done. But, for people with memory loss due to brain injury, dementia, or other medical conditions, this simple, yet vital, app can certainly be a life-saver and improve their quality of life.”
And for their loved ones and care-givers? Lester says, “We believe It’s Done can create real peace of mind for the caregivers and loved ones of those who suffer from short-term memory loss…just one more tool for helping everyone rest easy.”
