Discover Cloze Pronto … Never Miss an Important Date Again

If you are like me … sometimes your “smart” phone turns really dumb … as in it deletes items that you would bet your life on you entered into your calendar. Dates, consults, meetings, webinars, reminders, etc. I’ve had this happen more times than not. Then there is my online email/calendar via my computer. It’s supposed to sync but between the mobile and the computer, I think they declare a “let’s screw things up day” … and dang … items disappear.

Here’s a solution: discover CLOZE . Cloze for iOS prompts you at just the right moment and helps you to remember important meetings and tasks—like having a secretary or assistant in the next room saying, “Hey, you need to be here in 20 minutes … or your new client will be here in 5 minutes…”  Easily create a customer profile with a built-in AI feature. Create daily, weekly, etc., agendas. But here’s the WOOT: never forget an email or deadline again with. Oh, and this is a free app. Download via iTunes.
