I have thought about this for a long time, but always forget about it. Just recently came across it again. Here is my idea...
For family members, friends, etc I always enter their birthdays in the address book. Once this is one it automatically adds an entry into your calendar with notification. Now, I usually set my notifications for one week prior... so, as was the other day, I got notification of a cousin who has a birthday coming up. The problem being, while I was notified of it, that is the only notification I get.
My idea is to have a program which will allow you to set a calendar reminder for say once per day until the day is reached. So, in my case above, everyday for one week I would be notified of her birthday so it keeps reminding me.
This could also be useful for meetings that are scheduled in advance among many other things. Of course, in my example I used days, but even if you did something like reminding you of a meeting every hour the day it was to happen or something similar.
I have yet to stumble across anything like this and I really thing it should be something implemented into the rim os. If anyone is willing please contact me.
