MetadataShow full item record
This is not always possible for a person to remember all things or events by himself or herself, he or she needs to be reminded. To remind or not to forget to do things at right time on the right place is called Reminder Service. It could be reminded by one’s own self, someone else or have sort of technological intervention or gadgets to remind. Manually people remind by calendar or it could be reminded by reminder card, to do list, cheat sheet etc. But now-a-days reminder could be done by technologically by computer, e-mail from websites or by PDA and most of all by cell-phone. Cell-phone has great potential for reminder purpose because of wide availability. But the cell phone’s built in reminder system requires user to be smart enough to activate and deactivate the service when never appropriate. An easy alternative solution could be SMS based reminder. To remind someone’s birthday, anniversary, holiday, parties, deadlines etc are the most common purposes for Reminder Service. The objective of my thesis is to explore the perception of potential users about such SMS based reminder service and evaluation of effectiveness of demo based reminder service.
