BugMe! is one of those mobile applications that has been around for over a decade and serves an important purpose. Even though it is a fairly simple program, creating quick notes and having them appear as alarms is important. The Google Android version is the most capable while the iPhone & iPad versions look great. There is even a Palm version that reminds me a bit of BugMe!'s roots in the late 90s.??Check out my full review that covers BugMe! on four operating systems.
