    I use omnifocus not because i need it, because i was gifted it, its great but im far from a power user, the one thing i like is to be able to copy and paste urls in the notes section for things i wanna buy, ive tried looking everywhere and ive tried a bunch, you cant do that on the stock reminders app can you? Or else i would switch, any help would be appreciated, thanks!

    Hello

    You can copy/paste anything you want in the reminders app for iOS and Mac, it also has a note section where you can add more things. It is nowhere near omnifocus featurewise, but it is enough for a lot of people.

    I believe you have to add it to the notes section of the reminder

    Why do you need the reminder and the clickable link in Reminders? When Reminders gives you a reminding pop up, just go to notes to click the link. The only reason I ever open the reminders app is to add or edit a reminder. There's no reason to go there for the reminder or a link. I use notes a lot for links. I also store some links on emails I drop in folders.

    Use the Evernote reminder option. Evernote replaces my calendar, reminders and notes.

    You are right, it's not working, it works in the mac app though. Sorry about that, reminders app is not an "awesome" app, but there are alternatives you can use, like the already mentioned clear or pocket lists even evernote. If you have calendars app like calendars 5 (which has gone free now for limited time) or fantastical 2, they also do a terrific job at handling tasks and reminders with urls, locations and a lot more included.

    I suppose I am missing something as I just went into Native Notes and put in www.iMore.com and hit the box withe the arrow pointing up and it turned it from plain. Text to a clickable link that immediately took me to iMore using my iPad and the browser from within tapatalk pro.

    Yes, i know you can do it from within the notes app, i was talking about the native reminders app in the notes section, like i set a reminder for buying my daughter a new toy, then in the notes section i copy and paste the url from safari and
    Its not clickable

    linsiris,
    I use Reminders religiously but unfortunately it needs a lot of work.
    I am also having issues with it crashing on my iPad when I press the 'i" to display more info. The crashes are intermittent.
    Anyway, let's see what iOS 8 brings us.
    Good Luck

    I wish you could make multiple offers in the stock notes app like evernote, or email too notes like evernote, i found a jailbreak tweak that puts the clickable urls in the reminders app though lol

    jmendel,
    Unless I misunderstood you, you can email your notes in the Native Notes app.
    Good Luck

    I have to say personally say I use Evernote for everything. The app on my 5S, The app on my iPad, The web based and the desktop and no matter what I do you can sync it all no matter where you jump from with it.

    I may be way off but in a last attempt to at least show you what I do because I use a lot of clickable links for various things but they can be for all intents the same as you so I will show you how I use Evernote to do it using the list on the left that any of them I keep links be ie the text list or the list on the right. The I just go in as you would save a link and click on that to take you to,the toy you want to buy.



    Every link under either note I make are all clickable and then I make folders to keep these notes in. At least I tried and I hope maybe that will work and if not maybe you will find uses for Evernote.
