Nudgemail Updates – Now In Progress!
Thank you for your support over the years. For a long time many of you have heard “new stuff is coming” and, well, here it is. We’ve begun the server upgrade process, which will occur over the weekend of March 14th. During this time we don’t have a planned outage, but it is possible that we may see some downtime.
We’ve been hard at work on the “new Nudge” (don’t worry, mostly same as the old Nudge) for over 6 months now. During this time we’ve literally rebuilt the entire system on a more modern, more scalable, and more reliable architecture. This new platform will allow us to build more new features and services much more rapidly in the future. In the meanwhile, here’s what you should expect:
* More delivery accuracy: in the current Nudgemail you’ve probably noticed an 8am Nudge may arrive as late as 8:10am. In the new version, 8am means 8am. This is a huge improvement for those of you who rely on us for all of your to-do’s and reminders.
* Streamlined snoozebar: the original Nudge design was done over 4 years ago, with only minor tweaks since. Now get ready for a much simpler, cleaner, “flatter” look to all things Nudge. Further, if you ever need to forward a Nudged email, deleting the snoozebar from your Fwd will be much easier
* New logo! We love it, hope you will too.
* Mobile-friendly emails: The new template uses a “responsive design” and will look a lot better for anyone Nudging on their smart phones, or tablets, or watches (well, no guarantees on the watch – yet).
* Even less downtime: Since its launch in 2010, Nudgemail’s been up and running well over 99.99% of the time. But downtime as we know is painful. With the new platform, we expect even better performance moving forward.
It may take a few days to work all the kinks out of the new system. It’s really, really challenging to migrate our existing product to the new one, and not ask you to re-set all your Nudges, but we felt that was the only right way to go about things. So you may see a few oddities here and there, and not every Nudgemail command has the new template/logo on it yet. But if you have major problems, please let us know so we can get under the hood as fast as possible.
Also, as soon as we’re done with the full migration, we’ll get some new features coming your way. In addition to fixing Google Calendar integrations, we’ll be adding support for Attachments, launching a Chrome extension, offering an iPhone app, and more! We’ll share more updates about future plans as soon as we’re back to normal operations.
Thanks again for your support, your patience, and of, course, your Nudging!

Good to hear. Nudgemail and breakfast are the most productive part of my everyday.

LOVE – Nudgemail. Couldn’t live w/o it. Far superior to setting “alarms” in calendar apps. Looking fwd to the new additions.

Nudgemail has been my reminder service of choice since its introduction (or thereabouts) and I greatly appreciate its features. The major lack I find is the inability to set a reminder for something like the second Sunday of every month–but I can live without that. Thanks!

Thanks a lot for a tool that became an important part of my work routine.
It integrates flawlessly with my habits, nobody to which I delegate escapes from my control and my mind is at peace!

I am a big fan and user of Nudgemail and rely on it a lot.
Looking forward to your improvements.
Will think about any suggestions and e-mail at a later date.
Thanks for being there to NUDGE me when I need it.

Stoked to hear this is still being worked on. love nudgemail, but use other services and was worried this was a side project (that would eventually just wither).
Keep it up.

Thanks! I use nudgemail often and it has helped me stay organized and reminded of important responsibilities. I really appreciate your help.

Nudgemail is great.

I just set up a Nudgemail reminder and in the subject line I wrote May 12, 2015.
This is the confirmation I got back from Nudge:
Your NudgeMail with the subject May 12, 2015 is set for May 1st, 2015 at 6:30am
See Full Details
Why is it set up to send me a reminder on May First?

Your NudgeMail with the subject 12 May, 2015 is set for Mar 22nd, 2015 at 12:00pm
WHAT’S UP WITH THE ABOVE? NOTHING I SET UP WORKS!!

Your service is extremely helpful and easy to use. I recommend it to my students and colleagues on a regular basis. This is one of a kind, even if you do have some competition. It is a must have app for anyone who ever needs to follow up, get a reminder, or just a nudge. In short, this is truly a universal service for everyone.
Thanks, Allen Knight

I have been a user of Nudgemail.com since the beginning and really depend on it. Keep up the good work.

Love your product! It has worked for me very well.
March 26, 2015 @ 9:26 pm
I have tried for the last year, without success, to close my account and STOP sending me outdated emails for a work status for a job I no longer have. I continue to get the emails, even though I email STOP. Please close my account. Thank you.

Just wanted to say that you guys are great. Thanks so much!

I’ve noticed since these updates have been put in place, my nudgemails are not working nearly as accurately. “1 week” nudges will show up in my inbox 3 or 4 days later, etc. This happens almost daily. Are other users experiencing this?
March 30, 2015 @ 5:30 pm
Love Nudgemail and have recommended to friends. Just can’t figure out how you support this? Will there be a freemium version coming out? Just don’t want to lose this great service.
March 31, 2015 @ 10:42 pm
Just wanted to thank you for the thousands of times a Nudgemail has made my life easier!
