After entering your task’s description all you have to do is tap one button to set when the task is to be performed. View your current set of tasks only, or all your tasks - you decide.

View current tasks only:

It can be distracting to see tasks that aren’t due yet. DelayTask only shows you the tasks whose date or time has been reached, hiding others from view. For example, if you press “Tomorrow” the task will disappear from your “Current” list, only appearing again the following morning.

If you want to view future tasks you can do so by tapping the “All” button.

Use natural terms for dates:

Rather than enter dates using a calendar you use natural terms such as “Today”, “Tomorrow”, “Next Week”, requiring less thinking on your part.

Avoid assigning all your tasks to the same day:

When a period of several days is selected such as “This month” or “Next week” DelayTask will look at the dates in that range and assign the task to the least busy date in the period selected.

Swipe and tap to delete tasks:

No tapping to mark a task done and having it continue to stick around. Just swipe and tap to delete forever.

Uses the full screen on the iPhone 5.

Add repeated tasks:

Instead of removing your task entirely it is instead moved the number of days you request.

Life in focus

Update. Below is my original review. However, it's all gone to pot. This App has lost the plot. Loses data and edits the wrong entry. Avoid it. How sad.

Original review:

I loved the old and now defunct Put Things Off (PTO)app back I the days when Apps were new and the world was innocent.

However, this app is even better. So simple and so intuitive. It's how I live my life anyway. Always prioritising things to be done. I don't have to bother with calendars - especially Apple's hopeless default one. This app works way more effectively. Excellent.

Useful and easy to use

Have started to use this over others. I like the presentation of upcoming events. Would be improved with a badge and notification reminder
