Although time seems to fly by, we all have the same 24 hours a day. So why is it that some people are able to accomplish so much more than the majority of the population? One possible explanation can be found in their skill to manage time more efficiently than others. But how is it possible to cope with the flood of tasks that all require our immediate attention?

Enter 4 quadrants of time management, Widely studied by prolific Author, Stephen Covey, author of the best selling book "First Things First". This technique helps you prioritize actions based on urgency and importance matrix; helping you visualize where you ought to spend more time and what things you can completely eliminate doing in the first place.

This app is a UI representation of the 4 quadrant matrix; beautiful and simple to the core. Every action/task must go into one of the 4 quadrant. The app explicitly helps you do more of Q1 and Q2 where you get more bang for the bucks. And yet, it's just another task manager; with just this exception.

- when adding task, you must choose a quadrant. Default is least important.
- there are 4 quadrants with different priority and the color and opacity are indicative.
- Sync: take your tasks across devices on Mac, iPad or iPhone. Everything syncs seamlessly.
- Portability: In case you want to take the data elsewhere we got export to JSON; or in case you don't like the concept, we got you an option to wipe everything clear.

Crashing Issue

I was really excited to try this app out. It's so simple and one of the few I could get on my iPhone as well. However, as soon as I added one task to a quadrant, it crashed. I tried to add a second task multiple times but it kept crashing. Hopefully this is fixed in future but until then, stay away

Useful - improvements could be made

I like the simplicity of this app and have been looking for the four quadrant type app!!

Usability is simple and it looks clean

Improvements: language is a bit off “you got 1 task” instead of “you have 1 task”

If I could see my task list on the dash board instead of having to click on each quadrant

And finally - a timer or calendar tracker specifically for q2 tasks to know when the non-urgent item might be due.
