Image Gallery: BugMe! for Google Android, Palm webOS, Apple iPhone, and iPad

BugMe! is one of those mobile applications that has been around for over a decade and serves an important purpose. Even though it is a fairly simple program, creating quick notes and having them appear as alarms is important. The Google Android version is the most capable while the iPhone & iPad versions look great. There is even a Palm version that reminds me a bit of BugMe!'s roots in the late 90s.

Reminders work on the iPhone only if you have a wireless data connection up and running. This is a limitation of the iPhone OS that may be fixed in version 4.
