A few steps away from perfection

Update? Abandoned again long time since update, wondering if app will be around soon ...;(
It needs a desktop app that mirrors the phone experience...when using online it's just tasks separate from email as a sidebar in gmail, just junky... But I am using it on desktop less and less... Because it's a winner on the phone. Less features than CLOZE and others but the essentials are exactly where u need them and the clarity of the calendar view with today's tasks it's the cleanest and most logical. The few things that would be ideal additions are a way to default view of choice when u open app (calendar \ today would be better for me then tasks), the inclusion of an automatic archive with "completed date" of project tasks (kind of essential in business to track) ...and the long awaited search function to find a missing mail without flipping over to Gmail app. Give me those and 5 stars all the way.

TL;DR - It’s still in a league of its own, even though it’s sadly been abandoned. The world needs this, I hope it comes back.

It’s brilliant and effective. The only todo I’ve found truly useful (and I keep up with the latest and greatest). It’s an ambitious app integrating email -> todos -> calendar in a very elegant manner. There are fast tools to triage and organize tasks, and easy daily scheduling of events and todos in single timeline. It’s very well thought out, the features and flow of this app are outstanding. There’s nothing else like it, from a “pure” product perspective they really knew what they were doing. It’s tragic it was abandoned.

It’s still pretty functional in its current state (development stopped over a year ago, and multi-device sync isn’t supported), but it’s exciting to imagine where it can go if it took off... I really hope the developer resumes and succeeds changing the game with this awesome approach he pioneered.

Brilliant, plain and simple

I wish I had found this app before I spent money on so many others. I was literally telling someone today how surprised I am that none of those "sophisticated" email and calendar apps out there have found a way to blend email, to do lists, and calendars into one app and therefore eliminate the need for three, sometimes four, different apps on every device.

I would give this amazing app five stars without question if it had email support for more than just gmail accounts. Fortunately for me, I use gmail for my office and my main personal emails but I have a couple other addresses that are not gmail addresses and I would love to be able to use them with Handle.


However, I really have nothing else to complain about (beyond a few things I would to love see added - not really complaints, I guess) considering this app is 100% free (from what I can tell - I have tried to find a way to buy something so I can support them).

If they added support for non-gmail addresses and created an app for MacBooks, I would HAPPILY pay money for this app as is.
