Do you know what's better than getting things done? – Getting the right things done. Firstly is the ultimate personal tool that helps you find out and go after your true priorities. To avoid common mistakes like confusing urgency and importance or allowing your job or other people to prioritize your life, Firstly's brand new approach to prioritizing focuses your attention and energy on what matters most to you on a personal level.


Prioritizing is a personal game. What's important to you might be less important to other people. So Firstly was designed for personal use only.
Furthermore, Firstly is one of the rare apps of its kind that does not collect any of your data. Not even a nickname. – And yes, your data still syncs through iCloud. :)


- Introducing The focusPrioritizer tool: A new, simple, yet more effective way to prioritize your tasks with multiple available prioritizers.
- The Priority Report: A weekly (monthly, yearly) report of the tasks completed from a priority point of view. Check your focusScore.
- View your Today's tasks from a priority perspective.


- Organize everything using Projects and simple lists. Use Projects for your tasks and lists for simple listing and brainstorming.
- Add subtasks to any tasks.
- Add a scheduled time (a to-do time).
- Add a deadline.
- Add multiple reminders.
- Turn any task into a routine by using the repeat feature.
- Track the number and dates of completed recurrence for routine tasks.
- Introducing QuickScheduling: The most effective way to plan the tasks already available in your projects.
- Add a Priority to any Project.
- Add a deadline to any Project.
- Prioritize tasks efficiently by assigning a priority and deadline to Projects.
- Type using natural language like: "Meet with investors tomorrow at noon" and let Firstly schedule it for you.
- Enhanced note: Add rich notes to any task. An embedded detail extractor lets you access your details efficiently.
- Insert multiple tasks or subtasks with a simple copy and paste.
- Merge two Projects or Lists.
- Share any Project or List with other Firstly users via Messages, emails, etc.
- Save any Project or List as a Firstly file
- Move items from a list to a project and vice versa.
- A Gorgeous dark mode.
- Project themes for a more personalized experience.
- Shareable Daily Wisdom quote every day.
- And so much more…


Get the Lifetime Premium access to all Firstly's features and a bonus of 7 add-ons (3 prioritizers and 4 project themes) for a one-time payment of $14.99 – that's just two burritos. The Lifetime Premium also includes access to the many new features coming down the pike.

What’s New

Version 1.1.11

(Fix for Widget users on iOS 16)

In this new version of the Firstly app, we gave the Subtask feature its biggest enhancement to date. The newly added Subtasks actions increase the efficiency of planning and organizing inside the Firstly app to new heights. Plus, we added the Select feature so that you could apply these actions to multiple Subtasks at once, including:

- Creating a Task (from the Subtask)
- Duplicate
- Copy
- Share Subtasks as a simple text list
- Complete
- Undo Complete
- Delete

Visit the What's New page inside the Settings for more details about all Firstly's latest features, improvements, and bug fixes.

Enjoy and keep productive!

Finally found the one !

I’m a very busy real estate professional managing multiple transactions with many daily, weekly , monthly, quarterly and yearly goals and deadlines. I can track my progress with one swipe .
No more paper trails and sifting through hundreds of emails and updating calendar invites . This one has it all for my personal and professional lifestyle . Everything all in one place!

Developer Response ,

Thank you so much! We are so glad that Firstly is helping you manage your career. The routine features sure makes it easy to track your progress. More features to help you further are coming down the pike including Calendar integration.

Outstanding task manager

I am a traveling healthcare professional and this app really does everything you need it too. This helps me stay on top of tasks and priorities. I will be going back to school soon for additional credentials and I know having this app will relieve some of the stress with deadlines and projects. I highly recommend this app and i look forward to the morning quotes everyday!

Simply unbelievable!

This is the first todo app that is truly personal. I didn’t understand it at first but the creators of this app are not even asking for emails. Now that’s true privacy! Plus the organizing features are great. The only thing is that I just need to access the events on my calendar and the app will be perfection!
