Remarks

When a reminder is invoked and displayed to the user, the user can tap the notification to launch the application that created it. When it is launched in this manner, the application can query the NavigationUri property to obtain the contextual information that was set when the reminder was created.

This class inherits from ScheduledNotification and ScheduledAction. To create a notification that plays a custom sound when invoked, use Alarm.

Reminders are accurate only within a range of one minute. In other words, the notification can be launched up to one minute after it was scheduled. For more information about Reminders, see Alarms and Reminders for Windows Phone 8.
