MeisterTask is the most intuitive project and task management tool on the web and mobile.

As you’ll probably notice as soon as you open MeisterTask, we decided to give our logo a modern reboot. The fresh new version contains an added zap of color, a subtle gradient, and a versatile shape — square with rounded edges. We hope that you’ll like the new design as much as we do!
Ratings and Reviews
Fantastic Task Tracking app!
I’m retired now, but I still have a ton of things going on at home, in correspondence, in hobbies, and much more that need to be tracked…just not the same way as I did at work when everything really needed to be time tracked and everything had a hard deadline. Now I have tasks, but most of them can be finished when I get to them, and I can choose when that is, but there’s too many to try to remember everything I have to do. With Meistertask, I can easily add, rearrange, add notes, comments, or photos to my tasks, but I don’t have to time track them unless I choose! It also fit my desire for something only about three levels deep with comments. It’s way more than a To Do list (which is usually 1-2 layers), but way less than a Gantt or major project management tool like I lived on for many years. Best of all, I can find stuff easily to work on and FINISH without having to spend more time searching than doing. I don’t need an app that works with teams, though I’m delighted that this is so team-friendly, as it’s ideal for most teams where not all members are project management professionals. And it’s fully synced on my iPhone 8+ and MacBook Pro! Outstanding design and execution, and great looking on top of it!
The best task management App on Mac/iPhone
I have been using this App for 2 months. Previously I had struggled with finding a good app that can do task list, drag and drop for assignments, categorization, easy to use and collaborate on phone/Mac, and beautiful user interface, until Meister Tasks. I have introduced it to all my friends and colleagues. It is the best of its kind, with the same quality as enterprise task management softwares, and free of charge.
Need a real desktop app, please!!
This is, no doubt, one of the best apps of its kind but it is not a true desktop app. You cannot use it if you loose internet connection, like what happened to me this weekend when we lost power for a whole day due to a severe storm. I was unable to view my projects or todos in MeisterTask. In addition, you cannot backup your data to your local hard drive or store your archived tasks locally. The iOS apps work fine (although sync is not perfect), and are real apps that can be used without internet connection but sync when such connection is established (so why we cannot do this on the desktop?). Having said that, MeisterTask is elegant, modern, intuitive, easy to use, flexible, and full of useful feature. I would give it 5 star if it wasn't for the dependence on internet connectivity.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
