The "Reminders App" does not work on iPhone 4s, even after installing OS7!


iPhone 4S, iOS 7

    Tap anywhere in the body of the current reminders list and a new reminder will be created. The plus sign no longer exists as a way to create a new reminder (as of now anyway).

    I've noticed that the geofencing doesn't work when you close the Reminders App. Say you create a reminder of when you leave home to call work. But then you close the app, well now it won't remind you at all. Unlike before in iOS6 it would work still when you closed the app then.

     

    However, if you set a timed reminder. It'll still remind you at the specific time that you set.

    Nothing happens when i tap the page anywhere, reminders opens up but it acts like it freezes up as soon as it does open. Reminders, does work on my iPod Touch and my Other iPhone 4s! I upgraded one phone to iOS 7 to see if that would solve the problem, with reminders..no luck.

    Tried that, Didnt help.! Reminders acts like it freezes as soon as I open it.

    Sorry, I obviously wasn't clear--this was my first community post. On my iphone 5, I scroll to the white area BELOW my last reminder, tap there, and a new reminder pops open. It works fine, including adding a date, but I haven't used location reminders. If you have lots of not-completed reminders, you do have to scroll all the way to the bottom and tap down there--not in an existing reminder. (If many of your reminders are completed, HIDE them to make the list shorter!) I assume Apple is going to put the the plus sign back. This is a work around until then.

    I am very upset that reminders is no longer reminding me to do things!  This seems to have happened with new ios!  I went to Apple Store today and you would have thought I was the crazy one!  Apple please fix this ASAP. This is such a great feature.  I am constantly asking to be reminded to do something when I get home and Siri is no longer following my command!

    As stated above. In order for geo-fencing to work, Arrive home or Leave home. You need to leave the app open in the multitask area.

    If this is the case, then this is a change?  I have been using this featrure  for about 2 years and have not had to have the app open in the past.

    I said all of that above. In pervious iOS you can close the app out of multi task and still have the geo fencing work. Now you have to leave it open.

    I had the same behavior as described.  iPhone 4S, reminders worked fine for 2 years, then just quit.  still worked on my iPad.  Whenever I loaded Reminders, it looked like it just froze with a mostly blank screen that says NOTES, and a PLUS sign that didn't do anything.

     

    Solution: I went to my iCloud settings and discovered that Reminders was turned off.  I re-enabled Reminders in the iCloud setting, and Reminders immediately began working again as it always has before.  Hope this helps!
