Apps to Help You Remember Mundane Tasks: iPhone Edition

Editor's Note: Be sure to also read Apps to Help You Remember Mundane Tasks: Android Edition.

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- There are many apps that help you remember important events in life, but what about the other mundane chores like remembering to take the meat out of the freezer for dinner?

Yes, there is an app for that. This article deals specifically with those for the Apple (AAPL - Get Report) iPhone. Android users can see my accompanying article on apps for them.

Thaw Meat: Planning meals for a week is a chore, but it will be worse if you forget to take the meat out of the freezer. The highly customizable MealBoard is a full-service menu planner allowing you to input your own recipes or add ones found online via a Web browser. Items can then be added to a shopping list and you can even set reminders to thaw the meat earlier that day.
  • MealBoard, $1.99
  • Stop by the Grocery Store: There's a built-in reminder service for iPhone 4 and 4S allowing users to set a location to grocery list or other to-do lists and get a pop-up screen reminder. There's also Siri, Apple's digital personal assistant, which understands commands like, "Remind me to pick up organic, cage-free eggs at Whole Foods." But when it comes to apps, one of the top location-based reminders (and one of the pricier ones) is 2Do, available through iTunes.

    This feature-filled task app does it all: Adds tasks with your voice using Siri, reminds you when nearing a task via "Nearby," syncs with iCloud (to keep all iOS devices updated) and share tasks with fellow 2Do'ers. An Android version was recently released but so far has no location reminder.
  • 2Do on iTunes, $9.99
  • Get Beer Out of Freezer: Also available on iTunes, for the unorganized who forget to plan ahead and chill the beer the previous night, the Beer Timer app from blueHula Studios goes above and beyond. Not only will it set an alarm to remind you when to take the beer out of the freezer, it offers an simple pre-set option for type of beer and size for pale lager, pale ale and others. No more exploding beers! And for non-beer drinkers, iTunes also offers blueHula's Soda Timer for free.
  • BeerTimer on iTunes, $0.99
