Some of us are responsible enough to look at our calendars and to-do lists without prompting, some of us need a bit of gentle prodding to get things done, and some of us need to literally be yelled at. If you live alone, however, or your housemates are unwilling to remind you of every appointment or due date, perhaps it would be best to have your iPhone yell at you. Phones also tend to be more reliable than roommates, spouses, parents or children.
There are a number of iPhone apps on the market to help you remember appointments, due dates, tasks and the like, Cleversome perceived a gap to be filled in ease of use and pure convenience, and recently released their own notification app, 3do. But does 3do really offer anything new? Is it worth the $4.99 price tag? Let’s take a look after the jump!

As with many of the default iPhone utilities, the iPhone’s calendar app is fairly middle of the road. It’s a great app with solid functionality and good design, but it could be improved. If you find that the default calendar app doesn’t quite fit your needs, here’s 30 amazing alternatives you might want to check out!
We’ve split the selection below into categories containing apps with awesome functionality, apps that allow you to track holidays and important events, apps that throw in a handy clock feature, apps with a limited but useful focus, and finally, a few calendars that are just plain fun. Enjoy and let us know what you think!
Many of the things we have to do each day have to be done at specific locations. From picking up the dry cleaning to dropping off your library books, you have to remember to do certain tasks while in a specific place. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just be reminded of what you need to do while you’re in an area?
Task Ave is a new location-aware task manager that’s designed to help you remember what you need to do somewhere while you’re actually there. You’ll be able to quickly see how far you are from the things you need to do, and can add tasks to locations with the integrated Google Maps or location search. Keep reading to see how it works and if Task Ave will help you keep from making multiple trips for things you need to do in the same area.
So you’re looking for a good task manger? Join the club. We all want the same thing: something beautiful with plenty of features and automatic cloud syncing. We also don’t want to pay for either the iPhone or desktop version. The current trend in web content has taught us that we are entitled to such a service completely free of charge.
Strangely enough, such apps do in fact exist! Today we’ll take a look at Wunderlist, a newcomer making a big splash in the task management world. Also be sure to check out our review of the Mac version over at Mac.AppStorm.
In my business as a freelance software developer, the hardest part by far is maintaining quality communication with my clients, and having task-accoutability for both me and my corporate contacts. That’s why I and many others love Basecamp so much: it gives us a beautiful, simple, and easily learnable way to communicate with clients and delegate tasks, but more importantly, to document that communication and delegation.
Naturally, we all want to keep up with our projects on the go, which is where Summit, by Andy Smart comes in. Keep reading after the fold to see how you can simplify your Basecamp workflow like I did!
About a year ago a new task manager hit the iPhone. It was incredibly pretty, functional and played well with iCal’s tasks. 2do quickly rose in the charts of the Appstore and thanks to its continuing development established a solid user base among those in need of a task management app.
When the iPad was released, it seemed only natural that 2do should become an universal app. It has taken GuidedWays a couple of months, but the result is not just visually pleasing, but extends the core functionality of the app. I have reviewed 2do for the iPhone; follow me beyond the jump to see how it’s performing on the iPad.
How many task management applications does the world need? It seems like every day another “amazing” new GTD solution launches that seeks to outdo the others by piling on new features and introducing an ever-increasing amount of complexity.
Tags, projects, contexts, contributors, reminders, flagging, groups; what ever happened to the good old to do list? You know, something simple that acts as a memory aid without itself becoming a major task to keep up with. Recently, the TeuxDeux web application debuted and reminded us of the power of simplicity. Today we’ll take a look at its iPhone counterpart to see if the “less is more” strategy works in the realm of iOS.
Today we’re going to take a look at Producteev, an awesome todo app that might just be enough to have you saying adios to Backpack and Remember the Milk.
Unlimited projects and tasks, labels, due dates, reminders, collaboration, automatic web/iOS syncing, email integration, this is the free task manager you’ve been waiting for.
