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.

Great app

I have tried and looked pedi at every task/email management app I can find. This application is the only one that understands how email corresponds to tasks. This app has three areas or tabs to track the key components to managing tasks: email, to do, and calendar. All in one place and connected. In addition, Handle allows me to create to do's that are not tied to an email. Also very necessary. This program alone has figured out the correct combination. They generosity allow use without a subscription, however you should seriously consider paying the very reasonable amount because they done have ongoing costs with development as well as servers that are processing / syncing your data. The time this program saves me is more than worth the subscription.
