Personally I have never really had a problem setting up a quick alarm or note but I guess I don’t do it that often. BugMe is the latest creation from Electric Pocket and it promises to speed up the process. The idea is that you can easily jot alarms, reminders, notes, and more in one app and manage them that way. RIM has been needing to overhaul the notes, tasks, and alarm application in the BlackBerry for awhile now so this might be a good stopgap solution.
At $2.99 the app is pretty cheap and looks promising. Let us know if you pick it up!
From the description:
BugMe! is the quick and easy note-taker and reminder for your BlackBerry. You can jot notes, ideas and errands as you go and easily set any note as a reminder. BugMe! will sound an alarm and pop up an alert when its due.
Taking notes is quick, easy and flexible. BugMe!’s note taker recognizes web addresses, email addresses and phone numbers, so its easy to reach out from your notes to websites or make contact with people from the note.
For simple task management, you can flag your notes as urgent, or mark them off as done when they’re complete. BugMe!’s search tool lets you find notes with certain keywords or tags, and makes organizing and finding information simple.
BugMe! notes can be used as alarming reminders – which bug you when they’re due. Pick an alarm time from the quick list, or choose a custom alarm and configure repeating alarms to your taste.
BugMe! not only looks good, it also integrates well with your BlackBerry. You can share your BugMe! notes by SMS text or email, or store them in your Calendar or Task Manager. You can create BugMe! notes straight from emails, texts, tasks and appointments or simply launch BugMe! from anywhere on your BlackBerry to take a quick note or set a reminder. A rich set of keyboard shortcuts means BugMe! actions can be done quickly and effortlessly.

I bought this app. I like the way it integrates into the menus and it just works really well. After a couple days I have found myself using that app constantly.October 1, 2009 at 3:22 PM #180840
I remember this app from my Treo days. Unfortunately, the Palm version had one big feature that you likely won’t find on any Blackberry not named Storm– It allowed you to use the touchscreen on the Treo to scribble instant notes that you could alarm and file away. If they incorporate this into a separate Storm version, it would make a compelling case to open up the wallet for a new device.
