on the iCloud calendar, I can sort reminders by date, description, importance, etc. How can I do that on my desktop in OSX Mountain Lion's Reminders?

OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.1)

    You cannot do that. You could only use the little calendar icon to go through the days manually.

    Now you can't even do it in iCloud! It seems that when they separated Reminders from Calendar (and iCal), they got rid of the sorting feature (like sorting alphabetically).  Am I missing something?  Is sorting Reminders alphabetically (with a list) unavailable in iCloud.com, 10.8, and iOS 6?

    David,

     

    Can you or anyone else (e.g., someone from Apple) explain why Apple did it this way when it seems such a trivial programming effort to sort this list in logical way? It is inexplicable to me; how is an unsorted list "easier" for users?

     

    Did Apple consciously choose to leave the list unsorted for some obscure reason, or are they employing software engineers who do not understand and/or care how their customers use this function?

     

    Thanks

    Under 10.8, using the Reminders App, hold the command key and drag each reminder to your preferred position in the list.

    Holding cmd is not necessary.
