Tell Siri to “Remember This”
Reminders has the unique ability to use deep links into many other apps — in fact, almost any app that supports Apple’s Handoff feature can be linked into Reminders, even those that don’t support expose shareable links in any other way. While some apps, like Safari, offer Reminders on the standard iOS Share Sheet, the most universal way to access this is to simply tell Siri to “Remember this” when looking at an item.
For example, when viewing an e-mail, saying “Hey Siri, Remember This” will create a task with the subject line of the email message and a link right back to that specific message. Ask Siri to remember a book you’re reading and you’ll get a link back to that specific book so you can quickly open it again. This also works with Notes, Safari, News, Maps, Messages, Calendar, Wallet, and with a whole range of third-party apps like Pocket, YouVersion’s Bible app, Pixelmator, PCalc, Quora, and Evernote, just to name a few.
Further, in addition to a linked icon beside the reminder itself, when you’re notified with an alert for the reminder, you’ll be given an additional notification action to open the linked app. For example, a reminder to read a book will include an “Open Books” action in addition to the usual options for completing, snoozing, or dismissing the reminder.
