When you’ve got a system in place, when you have order, you’re not going to upset the applecart unless something pretty spectacular comes along. That’s exactly how I felt, and then I saw Silo. I was in a getting-things-done rut, and I needed something new to get me back on track. Silo has the goods and looks pretty fantastic, too.
Let’s take a look and see what makes this little app so great. (more…)
Despite the fact that I’m not as busy as I like to think I am (read: I have no life), I have a fascination with calendar apps and task managers. My most recent search is for an app that combines both calendar tasks and my to-do list. That first led me to Agenda, but it’s not perfect. And I’m not one to settle for anything less than perfect.
My next stop is Cal, the calendar app from the folks behind Any.do. I was new to Any.do as well — I had tried it before, but never stuck with it. Because Any.do and Cal are seamlessly married to each other, I thought it was time to give them a shot. And after spending three weeks with Cal, I’m ready to share my thoughts on the app. (more…)
Probably my least favorite thing about creating tasks is scheduling. I always end up with a giant task list filled to the brim with todos all scheduled for tomorrow or, worse yet, yesterday. I never take the time to schedule tasks because all that scrolling and figuring out what day of the week July 30 falls on is such a pain.
Let’s face it, you could waste a lot of time looking for the best task manager out there. They all promise that with a quick download or by signing up you’ll become much more productive. However, with so many on the market now, it can take hours to sort through them all.
I have task management apps and shopping list apps and calendar apps, all in an attempt to keep me and my husband on the same page. The sheer number of apps we use to do all this almost guarantees someone’s going to get crossed wires somewhere. Avocado is putting all of that and more into a single app, designed for couples, to organize the business of being together. Is there enough in Avocado’s one app to keep us rolling, or are we going to end up driving off the rails? (more…)
It’s Productivity Week here at iPhone.AppStorm, and all week we’re going to have app reviews and how-tos, all based on getting things done. Plus, we’ll even pull some classic reviews out of the archives. Stay tuned all week!
If there is one absolutely necessary app I have to have on a fresh installation of iOS, it’s a powerful task manager. Noticeably missing from iOS as a native feature is the ability to create to-do lists, manage tasks and stay on top of your day-to-day schedule.
There is definitely no shortage of task managers and to-do apps available on the App Store. Apple is even planning their own Reminders offering that aims to do away with third-party apps like Things in the upcoming launch of iOS 5. However, a dedicated user base and a strong word-of-mouth reputation have urged us to see if Things really has what it takes to compete with the countless alternatives.
