Just as you do for other apps, to set up Reminders to work with

Notification Center and/or display onscreen alerts or banners, launch Settings, tap

on the Notifications option, and then tap on the listing for the Reminders app. You

can then customize the settings on the Reminders menu screen within Settings.


When you launch Reminders for the first time on the iPad, the control center for

this app appears on the left side of the screen. On the right side of the screen is a

simulated sheet of lined paper.

Tap on the Add List option in the bottom-left corner of the screen to create a

new list from scratch. However, if you’ve already been using the Reminder app on

another iOS mobile device or Mac that’s linked to the same iCloud account, all of

your lists synchronize with the iPhone or iPad you’re currently using.

When you create a new list from scratch, it is displayed on the right side of the

screen using the temporary heading New List. Enter a title for the new list and

then associate a color with it. Tap on the Done option when you’re ready to begin

populating the list with items (as shown in Figure 13.12 on an iPad), or repeat this

process to create another list.
