Uh there’s a Notes app for this stuff, and it even has check boxes. Also there’s a Reminders app that you can tell Siri to set for you.

But when you text yourself you can pretend you have a friend.


usmclvsop t1_iy9joym wrote

but how will companies data mine your notes app? Text it to make sure it's visible to as many eyeballs as possible


ArchangelRenzoku t1_iy6vai1 wrote

Thankfully Samsung's have SNotes for all this. If you have a Note, you don't even have to unlock or turn on your screen. Just remove the pen and start writing. :)

It's all oragnized, taggable and searchable but also syncs to the cloud so you never lose said notes. Sometimes OS's don't backup MMS messages (or correctly) and that would leave alot of your text conversation moot.

No, you should share all of your thoughts with us... umm.. I mean yourself... using this archaic unencrypted protocol.

I’d be very surprised to learn of a modern phone that doesn’t have notes and reminders

Who still uses MMS?


ArchangelRenzoku t1_iy7hw7d wrote

Everyone who owns an iPhone or Android and communicates with the other ecosystem.


carlinhush t1_iy7ifcz wrote

What? I have not used or seen an MMS in years - maybe not even in this century. Everybody I know uses Whatsapp or Signal. TBH I wouldn't even know how to send an MMS


prozacandcoffee t1_iy837so wrote

If you send a message in Signal but both sides don't have it, it currently processes as an SMS/MMS. (I think that's changing soon.)


nebman227 t1_iy8y430 wrote

At least anecdotally in the US, no one I know uses a third party messaging app other than Snapchat, which is only some people I know - it's all iMessage/sms/mms.


ArchangelRenzoku t1_iy7j7ry wrote

I'm glad someone has privacy-conscious contacts out there.

Now if only both sides of my family would get on board... I would prefer Signal.

Idiot thinks they've invented Google's Keep. Works on all browsers and mobile devices. Very convenient.

I'm pretty sure there's a legitimate non-parody DiWHY of that where someone turns used paper into new shitty paper for literally no reason. It wasn't a 1:1 thing either, they had to use a bunch of chemicals and ruin a blender lol


UnkindlyDisagree t1_iy7mncm wrote

Looks like the idiot is you, since Google Keep doesn't compare. It's just for notes, you can't attach large files.

Sending messages to yourself is more similar to a free and infinite Cloud Storage than some lame ass note taking app.

My own Telegram has like 70Gb, worth of films.

This is a person who doesn't realize what notes are.

Everything this person texts to themselves, i put in a list, without even having to touching my phone.

My grandma would love this life hack tho


UnkindlyDisagree t1_iy7mxqk wrote

Oh wow, let me know when a lame ass Notes app can handle big files.


randuski t1_iy94stk wrote

I can't really think of a file so big it won't fit in my notes app haha

You mean iMessage not sending a received gray bubble?

Another block to the list.


mredofcourse t1_iy7n527 wrote

This is really bad advice.

Instead, you should learn how to organize your digital life, utilize basic utilities (notes, reminders, etc...) and sync through various means like cloud or local if you prefer.

You're crazy. Don't do it.

I just use my own memory. Is easier, less time consuming and more private. Maybe I'll have to do it in the future, if I start developing alzheimer or something, but right now I'm a healthy adult

More like speaking like a person who use his brain, rather than having it atrophied because the lack of use

I’m pretty sure my summa cum laude, 5 years a software engineer brain is far from atrophied but okkkkkk
