Organized, Visable, Easy to Use

I got this app recommended from a friend. I really appreciate how helpful it is to see the things I need to complete. Having it on your laptop is different than on your phone because I'm on my phone majority of the time. Easy to create tasks, easy to access, and easy to edit. The sound effects and simple icons make it more visible. I don't feel cluttered by the text. I can use calendar, but I'll ignore it or forget it. The satisfaction of hearing the little chime and seeing it clear away is better than deleting an event.
I have a few changes that would be personally preferred :
1. Having a time the something is due. I have some assignments due mid day, so I can see myself forgetting. Maybe have it as a category under the "Due Date", if not selected then the system assumes it's due until completed.
2. Having the "Inbox, Today, important, all task, and introductory" tabs on the left side hidden in three "menu bars". I am comparing this to an email (specifically Gmail) format. I'll click on "important" when I need to, but seeing it as the front page is cluttering.
3. Anyway this could be a widget? It would be the similar to a Post-It.
Thank you for creating this app. I can see it being used for a while.

Hello Zaza,

Thank you so much for your review, and for your suggestions! We are pleased to hear that you like using Masterlist. 

About your suggestions:

(1) You can always set a reminder for the time. For instance, you can set the due day as today, and set the reminder time as 2:00 PM. Masterlist will notify you at this time. Does this work for you?

(2) We have noted this suggestion. Thank you!

(3) We have added a widget feature to Masterlist. It shows you your focus performance and your daily goal. I hope it is helpful for you.

Thank you very much for being a Masterlist user!

Get It Done!

I had been in an epic search to find a lean but effective task manager/reminder along with pomodoro timers app for ages. Search is over. This app is so good, it basically put everything in order during my bar exam prep and pushed me to overcome my chronic procrastination in just a few days. I cannot say enough for this little but uber effective tool.
