Ap Review: Oh Snap

Lately, I have been sharing various mental health aps that teach coping skills, mindfulness, and education about mental health. Most of these aps help you track symptoms and notice patterns in your own life. Today, I am sharing an ap that does exactly one thing.

Oh Snap reminds you to Do The Thing. Pull up the ap, name The Thing you need reminders for, set how often you’d like to be reminded, and Oh Snap does the rest.

Do you find yourself hyper-focused to the point that you forget to attend to your basic needs? You can ask Oh Snap to remind you to eat, use the bathroom, drink water, or anything else you can imagine. Reminders are randomized, so this isn’t something you would use to remember to take medication, but it could remind you to check in with your feelings periodically. You decide when you want Oh Snap to start sending you notifications and when you want it to stop, so it’s not reminding you to do things when you are asleep.

Since I have been spending so much time doing telehealth sessions, I started using Oh Snap to remind me to get out of my chair and stretch when I am seeing clients back to back. (Of course, my phone is silenced when I’m in sessions, but when a session ends, I can see the notification.)

Create New Reminder

There is a paid version of Oh Snap that lets you have reminders for unlimited things, but honestly, the thought of getting that many notifications overwhelms me. Premium also unlocks Dark Mode, if you prefer that setting.

Oh Snap is a simple and handy way to remember things you have to do periodically.
