Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
Best to-do app
This is my favorite to-do app in the App Store. It has all important features and doesn’t have anything else. Definitely recommended!!
