Brian Tong here with CNET.com and if you're using iOS 5, one of the additions is the Reminders app. It could be super helpful, but we're gonna show you how to make it even more helpful by sharing your reminder's list with a friend or loved one. Then to get started, you'll need a few things, a device that's running iOS 5. You'll need to set up a free iCloud account with Apple and you'll also need a computer. Now most of the time, reminders are treated when we're on the go, so let's jump into the Reminders app on our phone and on the top left-hand corner, click on the icon that will allow you to create different reminder lists. It could be anything from groceries to your upcoming vacation, but I'm going to add another list for a dinner party. Then we'll jump into that specific list and add a few reminders because who doesn't like a little cabernet and candles for a dinner date? Yeah. Now once we've put in a few things, let's go to our computer and log into iCloud.com with our free account we've already created. We'll get access to our calendar and in the left-hand column, you'll see our reminder list. We can see our dinner party list and there's a sharing icon next to it. Click on it and it will prompt you to add a person to share the reminder list with. They will also need their own free iCloud account, but once you enter their e-mail address and click Share, they'll receive an e-mail to join the reminder's list. Once they accept, they'll be able to view and edit the reminder list and it will be shared between 2 people that really care about each other. Raincoat. So there you have it. I'm Brian Tong for CNET.com and there's your How To for sharing your reminders in iOS 5. Use it wisely.
