I wonder if I could be any good at Android development, because I'll be damned if there isn't still a need for a Google Calendar reminders workalike in Y2K19. (A mission-critical need for me, at any rate, and I suspect others who have a complex relationship with linear time.)
But like. It'd be so much more a thing I might actually do if I could get even $50/mo out of it. And I would open source it and I just don't know how well beg-ware gets compensated, even for cool fedi devs.
Dont know what you looking for, if this may be any use or if you may already know about these-
I use Etar as my calendar with Calendar Notifications
Etar - OpenSource Calendar https://f-droid.org/app/ws.xsoh.etar
Calendar Notifications (Advanced calendar notifications) - https://f-droid.org/app/com.github.quarck.calnotif
Also offline calendar for on device calendar & DAVx⁵ to sync Nextcloud calendars
Offline Calendar - https://f-droid.org/app/org.sufficientlysecure.localcalendar
DAVx⁵ (CalDAV/CardDAV Synchronization) - https://f-droid.org/app/at.bitfire.davdroid
@dazinism Hey, thanks for this. I'm in a hurry so I haven't looked at the links but I suspect that all those apps have reminders *for events* but not reminders in the style of Google Calendar reminders, which are their own type of event.
What I'm really looking for is the UX of first-class Reminders in Google Calendar on my phone: a (potentially repeating) notification which pops up at a given time, is snoozable, and doesn't go away until dismissed. This is not an easy thing to find.
@dazinism Hey, thanks again. I've tried Tasks, it doesn't have the right UX.
Google extended Google Calendar to have something called Reminders, which are sort of like Events but not really, thus not caldav compatible.
None of the f-droid To-Do/Task apps I've tried replicate the UX of gcal Reminders. "Repeat Me" is closest, but it's beta quality and buggy.
I suspect the answer is either in a reminder app I haven't yet found, or it doesn't exist.
