I'm looking for an Android app that can remind me of the upcoming expiration dates of items such as passport, insurance, coupons, or even shelved food.


  • Ability to enter an item name, the expiry date, and the relative reminder period (e.g. 1 month before expiration)
  • Some sort of cloud backup for the resulting database, or at least the capability to export to/import from SD card in a common file format (csv, html,...)
  • Reminders via email/SMS or some other permanent record, not just through notifications
  • Works on Android 5

Great to have:

  • An accompanying web app
  • Categories and tags for entries
  • Reccurring reminders until action is taken
  • Android widget for quick add
  • Single payment purchase (no subsription)
  • The reminder via email/SMS will likely be the hardest requirement to meet. Apr 12, 2015 at 6:39
  • A little list: Shopping Receipts (some including warranty reminders, which can be used for any "expiration reminders"). I've never used any of them, so I cannot give a recommendation ;)

  • @Izzy I read through their features, but none of them have email reminders, or backup (Warranty Reminder has it on their upcoming features)

I found this post on lifehacker, the post is about an app named FoodKeeper(iTunes), which tells you when your food really expires and sends you reminder, this app uses the information which comes from USDA.

this might help you.

    Thanks. But that looks like just a collection of tips about food. I can't input manual entries. It's a nice app, just not what I'm looking for
