Add text, audio, image, video and more content to your reminders!


PowR – A shortcut to add text, audio, image, video and more content to your reminders!

This Shortcut Supports Check For Updates

Made with OutputKit

Some prerequisites:
Before creating your first reminder, PowR requires the following:
- The Reminders app by Apple,
- A Reminders list called "PowR",
- A Photos album called "PowR",

How does creating a reminder with PowR work?
1. Select an edit mode. I’d recommend “Quick Create” (unless you really like to change how things look or like a thorough process).
2. Give the reminder a title.
3. Select what content you want to add.
4. Tell it how much of each content you want to add.
5. Add the content you want – media (audio, images, videos) that aren’t from online are saved to the PowR photo album for retrieval later. Text is saved in the reminder itself.
6. Set a time/location notification for your reminder.
7. Preview what the reminder looks like, if you wish.
8. When you receive the reminder notification, tap the link to see your reminder in action – including the media!

You can also View and Remove reminders at any time just by tapping on the Shortcut and selecting the relevant option from the menu.

The more media (audio, image, video) content you include in your reminder, the slower the reminder will load when you come to view it.

Especially with videos over a minute in length.

This is FAR from a 'QUICK' shortcut to manage your reminders!
- For one, PowR doesn't have access to reminders created outside of it.
- For another, although PowR is responsive, the process of creating a reminder is very thorough.
If a quick reminders manager shortcut was what you were after instead, tap here to search RoutineHub.

Not all content listed can be added right now. This is not a bug, it just hasn't yet all been included in the shortcut.

Next to each content item in the list will be an emoji (until all items are added at least!) These emojis mean:

✅ = Content that can be added to your reminder.

⭐️ = New Content Available that can be added to your reminder.

No emoji = Not currently available. Keep checking for updates - one day it will be available!

Content icons may only load when online. The rest of the reminder should load fine when offline, though.

Content icons are created using Font Awesome Icons, Version 5.6.3.

If you choose either the "Custom Create" or "Complete Create" options, you can select any content icon available you wish. With the "Quick Create" option, a relevant default icon is selected for you instead.

The list of custom content icons that can be added while creating your reminders is available at: https://fontawesome.com/icons?d=gallery&m=free.

Only the 'Free' Font Awesome Icons can be added.

See the website above for more information regarding the license for use of Font Awesome Icons.

Although much testing has been carried out while making this shortcut, bugs may exist.

If you spot a bug, do get in touch. I'll list you in the Acknowledgements of the shortcut, if you wish!

This Shortcut is offered 'as is'. Use it at your own risk. I can't be held liable for any losses. etc.

Sorry for the lack of Commenting throughout this shortcut, it just makes the shortcut look too messy! Check out the "Magic Variables", they make it pretty self explanatory but if you do want an explanation of anything, get in touch.

Although PowR is currently version 0.5 – it’s not in Beta! Just not all content has been added, so it’s not yet version 1.0.

This Shortcut Supports Check For Updates
Run the Check For Updates shortcut at any time to check for updates to this and other shortcuts.

Until PowR reaches Version 1.0, I'd recommend checking for updates at least once every couple of weeks.

Thanks to pfg.

Thanks to hmh for hosting this shortcut here on RoutineHub.

Huge thanks to entee, for without the shortcuts 'Menu Builder', 'Quick Icon Maker' and 'OutputKit', this shortcut would be visually atrocious!
