A system and a method for setting reminders triggered by user activities are disclosed. The system includes at least one computing device and at least one application that runs on the device. The computing device can be a phone, a vehicle’s computer, a laptop, a tablet or a wearable like a watch. The method allows the user to specify the activity to trigger a reminder, such as opening of an app, calling a friend, or setting an alarm in a phone. The system detects the particular user activity and triggers the reminder received by the user. The system and method provide for a versatile and effective way to set reminders that more closely mirrors the way that people remind themselves to do this in the non-digital world.
