Import lists into Reminders app on Mac from a plain text file.

Fri, 01/03/2014 - 13:50
I wanted to import lists into the Reminders app on the iMac. (iCloud syncs the lists to other devices ... when sync is functioning correctly.) The Reminders app's import function acts only on .ics files. Went seeking solutions for plain text files.

Found Ben's Applescript at http://benguild.com/2012/04/11/how-to-import-tasks-to-do-items-into-ios-reminders/.

It provides a nice technique to import a list from a plain text file into the Reminders app on Mac OS X.
