Chaos Control is a task manager based on the best ideas of GTD (Getting Things Done) methodology created by David Allen. Whether you are running a business, launching an app, working on a project or simply planning your holiday trip, Chaos Control is a perfect tool to manage your goals, juggle your priorities, and organize your tasks to get things done. And the best part is, you can handle both heavyweight project planning and simple daily routine like shopping list management in one flexible app. Also, Chaos Control is available across all major mobile and desktop platforms with seamless sync.
HERE IS HOW IT WORKS:
1) MANAGE YOUR PROJECTS
Project is a goal combined with a set of tasks you need to complete in order to achieve it. Create as many projects as you like to write down all the desired outcomes you have
2) ORGANIZE YOUR GOALS
Create unlimited number of projects and group them by category using Folders
3) USE GTD CONTEXTS
Organize tasks from different projects using flexible context lists. If you are familiar with GTD you would just love this feature
4) PLAN YOUR DAY
Set due dates for tasks and make plans for any particular day
5) USE CHAOS BOX
Put all the incoming tasks, notes and ideas into Chaos Box in order to process them later. It works similar to GTD inbox, but you can use it as a simple to-do list
6) SYNC YOUR DATA
Chaos Control works on both desktop and mobile devices. Setup an account and sync your projects across all of your devices
This app is designed with creative people in mind. Designers, writers, developers, startup founders, entrepreneurs of all kinds and pretty much anyone with ideas and desire to make them happen. We combined the power of GTD with the convenient interface to help you with:
• personal goal setting
• task management

Ratings and Reviews
i've been looking for something like this for a long time!
i've tried many project management apps and ones online and haven't found one that quite fit the way my flow and way of organization. Chaos Control does this for me! the big thing for me is the way projects (or goals) can be organized with folders and context. this really cleared things up me! the interface is also clean and easy to navigate. there is also a section dedicated to tutorials on how to better use the app, which i really appreciate. it didn't take long for me to decide to purchase the full version. if i were to have one suggestion for the developers, i feel it would be nice to be able to choose from a few more color schemes. in my opinion, the light theme is too bright for macOS Mojave. and the dark theme is nice, but not too inspiring. but i don't know. i'm no expert. the app does get the job done and does it well. so maybe adding features like more themese might not be inline with what the app is supposed to do (control chaos). i guess i am suggesting for additional themes because i am a very visual person. anyway, thank you so much for developing a great app. i look forward to future development on this!

Thank you for your kind feedback and the suggestions!
Definitely more color options to come in further updates.
Have a great weekend!
Best one I’ve found over many years of using other methodologies
Chaos Control’s strength is that it does not go too far with features that start to muddy the waters.
I’ve tried several techniques in CC to manage my list of things to do TODAY, and now I’ve got a better way to do it, than using the Daily Plan. And it works great for me because I always have too many things in Daily Plan than I can get done in one day.
In short I’ve created a project called DO TODAY. I first review the Daily Plan and move very important things from there to DO TODAY. Then I take a look at Daily Plan and readjust any due dates, as necessary. If something on DO TODAY is not done by the end of the day, I start the next day by finishing up the list, then cycle back to moving things from Daily Plan to DO TODAY process to get the list for of tasks for the rest of today.
I have also used contexts to mark all of the things that I will do today, but the method I described, above, seems to work the best

Thanks for the review and for sharing your method!
Very interesting approach. We are glad the app is helpful.
Good potential, not quite working as expected
I really need this to be seamless on multiple Macs, iPhone, and iPad, but the sycning isn’t carrying everything over. Tasks are in sync, but choices in settings and contexts I create need to be repeated on each device. I’ve tried to find information about this to see if I’m doing something wrong, but I haven’t found anything helpful yet. Still hopeful it will be the perfect organization tool, if I can get it working right!
UPDATE: I added a star. The developer responded prompty to my email inquiry, and syncing is working fine now. Looking forward to using it more, to get a better feel for it, but so far it seems great!
