The tool to remind your future self of stuff so your present self doesn't have to remember

Make decisions with the right context.

Sometimes you do not have all the answers right this moment. Tickler lets you postpone making decisions and re-evaluate at a later date.

  1. Schedule a Tickle
  2. Select a trigger: Intray or email

How do I use Tickler with the Self-management coaching?

Tickler was built specifically to act as the first part in a "Getting Things Done" (GTD) process. Use it as the 'Tickler file' in the following flowchart. Feel free to check out the Self-management coaching.

I don't trust you with my data, can I still use Tickler?

Yes. All data submitted via Tickler is secured while it is being submitted and while it is being stored. Users will never be tracked and their data will never be exposed to third parties. Moreover, Tickler is free software, so anyone can host a Tickler server themselves. The code is available on Github.

Will there ever be ads?

There will never be ads on Tickler. Tickler is designed for power users and maximum effiency. Any distraction will decrease productivity.

Is there an Android or iPhone application?

Tickler is currently not available on Android or iPhone. You can, however, use Tickler via the browser on your phone. If you are interested in writing an Android of iPhone application, please contact us.
