    2. Pi Reminder

    The Pi Reminder extension is another tool with bonus features you’ll enjoy. First, it has a companion reminder app for Android, so you can sign in with the same Google account and unlock all of the features. However, you can also use the extension as a guest without creating an account or signing in.

    Next, you can choose from task or time reminders. The first option simply notifies you when time’s up while the second gives you the option to mark it as complete or postpone it to most any date and time you like.
