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.
Wake up. Grab a bagel, avoid the line at the coffee shop. Check the to-do list. Should I hit the gym like it says I should? Nah, let’s just skip that and grab a donut instead, I’ll work out harder tomorrow.
Sound familiar? Face it: there are lots of things that you’re supposed to do on your to-do list, but you don’t. Is it your fault for being lazy, or is it the list? Carrot aims to answer that question a bit differently: It’s you, stupid.
There are lots of ways to keep track of the stuff you want to do, but I’m not talking about the dumb stuff like grocery shopping or organizing your garage. Who wants to do that? That’s why you have to get an app to remind you to do it, and boy howdy, are there a lot of apps for that kind of stuff.
Your options can be more limited if you want to keep track of the fun stuff you want to do, things that are completely unrelated to your groceries. Done Not Done, an app for keeping track of all of the books, music and movies you haven’t gotten around to yet, is trying to cover the fun stuff, though. We’ll take a look and find out if Done Not Done’s to do lists and social recommendations are any better than a plain checklist. (more…)
It’s been said many times before on AppStorm, and I’ll say it again — the App Store is littered with to-do apps. Ranging in price and functionality, an abundance of options are at your disposal if you’re in the market for an app that will help manage your task list. Basic users may be satisfied with the Reminders app that comes pre-installed on the iPhone, or may prefer simplified to-do apps like Clear. Mid-range users that need a little more functionality may choose an app like Things, while advanced users may go with OmniFocus.
With so many to-do apps to choose from, how does one standout? In the case of 2 Days, developer Ngoc Luu decided to take a unique approach by changing the way users thinks about task management. (more…)
It seems almost impossible to believe that just three years ago we didn’t synchronise much data between devices. Until recently, most people used just one computer to do everything. Ok, maybe two: home and work, but the fact remains that syncing data normally involved a physical device such as a USB drive.
Of course, Apple users had MobileMe to synchronise contacts and calendars between their Mac and iPhone, but this was before Apple’s Reminders app existed. Despite a whole App Store packed with countless task managers, none allowed the wireless syncing of data until 6Wunderkinder shook things up with Wunderlist and its cloud syncing across different devices. Now they’re back with Wunderlist 2 on the iPhone, but the landscape has changed, so how does it stack up? (more…)
Even before the launch of the App Store, people were consumed with finding ways to be more productive. Technology has both hindered and attempted to help at solving that problem. The more things we do online, the more we find that we benefit from tools to help make those things easier and take them off our minds.
If you’re like me, you’re always looking for ways to be more productive. In fact, there are thousands of apps available on the app store dedicated to just that. One of those tools is the app Easilydo, which claims it can be your life assistant. That’s quite an impressive title to throw around. Read on to see if it lives up to that declaration. (more…)
To-do apps are a dime a dozen on the iPhone, and it’s hard for any one of them to stand out. To make a real impression, there has to be something new and useful brought to the table. What I always need and am always looking for is an app that lets me share my to-do list. I don’t live in a bubble, and sometimes I want to collaborate with my family and friends to get the job done.
After hiding its to-do light under Android’s bushel, Astrid recently brought social to-dos and task management to iOS. With a snappy interface and to-do sharing amongst my contacts, Astrid may be the task management app I’ve been looking for. (more…)
Todo Movies is an app that keeps track of the movies you want to watch and notifies you when new movies come out. This app has only one function unlike other movie apps on the app store like Flixter which does showtimes, movie and actor bios, and many other features including keeping track of those movies you’ve been itching to see.
If all you want is a “Todo” manager for movies you want to see, Todo Movies is definitely the best option. For all movie lovers who never again want to obsess over a movie months before and then totally forget about it when it actually comes out or just want to make a list of old movies they have been thinking about watching, Todo Movies is your best bet.
I’ve used plenty to-do list applications in my day, and shelled out quite a bit of money for them, to say the least. Some boasted much more features than others, while some were better designed. And, well, some were better than others. I have found that I prefer the simple to-do app, so I resorted to using Clear.
Then a nifty little app called Cheddar came out. It was similar to Clear because of its simplicity of design and function, but seemed to be a bit more robust when it came down to features. But does Cheddar make the cut and replace Clear as my go-to to-do list application? Find out after the jump. (more…)
Over the past month I have been on a quest to find a good task manager for myself. Personally, I wanted one that was simple to use, not overloaded with features, able to sync with my iOS devices, and share with others.
After buying and testing a handful of apps, I found one that I had never heard of before and actually, I heard about it on a podcast by Mike Vardy who loved it. The task manager that I am talking about is Asana, which, after testing it for a bit, I decided that this was the one that I was going to use full time. Let me explain more about the app and why I like it so much.
