figured out a good way to get recurring reminders on laptop, but what about on iOS?

Recommended Posts

The chrome extension Chrontabs allows you to set it so web pages open based on time/day. This works decent for me to open specific Evernote notes, but the webview is heavy on resources and many of us are mobile quite often. What's a current streamlined workflow to get recurring reminders for specific notes on iOS? Please discuss

recurring reminders for specific notes on iOS

The question applies to all the platforms; the Evernote reminder system is very basic.  
I don't use it, preferring the dedicated Reminder app in IOS/Mac.
Its a manual process to transfer reminders from notes, but I use Applescript (Mac) to help.

There aren't too many tools available in IOS.  
Whenever I want to automate things I usually look to Applescript on my Mac.  I have a morning alarm script running - I could easily add an update to the reminder for specific notes.

 From what I've thought and from you chiming in, I think the best option is to use the reminders app, although my aim is to try to keep everything in Evernote so that I utilize Evernote more. Although, I could append things to specific reminder lists via Siri, so that is a plus. Shame this isn't a native feature in Evernote yet.

This has been covered in other threads before, such as:

The Evernote functionality is not very useful.  I would like to see a much more robust reminder system. However, there are workarounds if you so choose, so search around Evernote forums and you can learn various ways.   The thread I pasted talks about google calendar as one option, and IFTTT as another option.  There are more; if you don't like IFTTT you can try Zapier or Workato.  Both have issues with very limited free accounts, FYI, but they have somewhat more functionality than IFTTT.
