In Your Face: The Mac app with which you can no longer miss appointments

Luckily, I don't have too many appointments and Zoom meetings, but my wife likes to complain that she has forgotten an appointment every now and then. The reason for this is that the notifications on the Mac in the top right are not super conspicuous and you can easily miss them if several appear there per day.

Here comes "In Your Face” comes into play, a Mac app that ensures that you no longer miss an appointment. Instead of relying on inconspicuous notifications that can easily be missed, “In Your Face” blocks your screen with a reminder until you actively respond. This method ensures that you not only see the notification, but also respond to it - perfect for those of you who are often immersed in your work and lose track of time.

When the appointments appear like this on the Mac, you simply can't ignore them anymore.

Developers and inspiration

Martin Höller, an independent iOS and macOS developer, is behind “In Your Face”. Martin's journey into software development began in 2006, and his passion lies in designing user-friendly applications for Apple devices. “In Your Face” was inspired by Martin’s own everyday work.

He also noted at the time that conventional memories can easily be overlooked when one is deeply immersed in work. And because he was tired of this, he developed the app so that you can actually not miss certain reminders and appointments. I'm always happy when apps are created this way, because then you can assume that the developer really puts their heart and soul into the app.

The In Your Face app lives in the menu bar of your Mac and allows you to configure the app and appointments.

Installation and use of the app

Installing “In Your Face” is straightforward. After downloading and installing the app, you will find the icon in the menu bar of your Mac. From there you can manage the app and make settings.

Menu bar placement ensures In Your Face is always quick and easy to access without cluttering up your workspace. This makes it easy for you to activate the app when you're working on something important and want to make sure you don't miss any appointments or reminders.

In the app you set the dates that you want to be presented to you “In Your Face”.

Feedback and success stories

Users of “In Your Face” consistently report positively about their experiences. Many highlight how the app has saved them from embarrassing situations by preventing them from forgetting important meetings or deadlines. I have translated three quotes from reviews for you here that show how helpful the app is:

ADHD’s Best Friend – When I’m hyperfocused on a task, I miss meetings. This means I no longer miss meetings. Thanks for that!

...or these:

Essential - If you tend to lose track of time when you're in the flow, this little gem will bring you back to reality just in time to attend the next meeting.

...or this review:

An app I can't live without - In a world where I work mostly remotely, this app is the only thing that saves me from missing every single meeting while getting lost writing my code.

I think you can see that the app is very practical for the relevant target group. Unfortunately, I haven't tried them out because I hardly have any appointments and I usually don't miss the three that I have.

The "In Your Face" app is also available via Setapp - for me it's the best choice as there are many other great Mac apps with the subscription.

In Your Face also available via Setapp

An interesting detail for Setapp users: “In Your Face” is also available through this subscription service for Mac software. Setapp offers access to a variety of high-quality apps for a monthly fee, similar to Netflix for movies or Spotify for music.

By using Setapp you can get “In Your Face” along with many other useful apps without having to buy each one individually. This is particularly useful for those who like to try out different apps and expand the variety of their digital toolbox. I've been using Setapp for years and it often saves me the hassle of trying out software when I need something new.
