I’m a fan of getting things done apps, and I have more than one on my iPad. That’s not just because I like them so much, though. One app never seems to have all of the features I want, and I want to create the best task management solution, piecemeal. I’m trying out Todoist, because it seems to have some features I’ve been looking for but haven’t been able to pin down. Will it be all I need in a single app? We’ll see after the jump. (more…)
It’s Productivity Month on iPad.AppStorm! Throughout July, we plan to share with you all our tips, tricks, apps and resources to help you both improve your iPad experience and work better and more productively!
One of the gems on the productivity app market is 30/30, and if you haven’t tried it out yet, now’s your shot. It’s got lots of great features and is quite a looker, too. A built in timer and plenty of customization options for all of your tasks are just the tip of the iceberg with this pick. I’ll run through all of the best features of 30/30 and what makes it such a task managing powerhouse. (more…)
We’ve just started a new year, and so many of us already need help getting back on track. I, for one, always set really important goals for myself with high hopes of making them stick, only to be caught off guard by my own lack of willpower and motivation.
All I need is a little help to keep me on the right path, and that’s what My Wonderful Goals offers. The forward planning and positive reinforcement inherent in My Wonderful Goals may give me the boost I need not to stray this time. But can an app really do all that? (more…)
A long time ago (in a galaxy far, far away) when iPad AppStorm wasn’t even its own site, we looked at one of the most popular productivity apps for iPad, Things, and we gave it a highly praised 8 out of 10. We liked its stylish interface yet didn’t particularly like its expensive price tag back then, which seemed a little excessive for just a simple productivity app.
Well, a lot has changed with Things since then, so let’s revisit the app to see whether it can still live up to that 8 out of 10 score. (more…)
To-do software is somewhat akin to sports teams, in the sense that everyone has their favorite. Users develop strong allegiances, while apps like Omnifocus develop cult followings. Insult a popular to-do app and be ready to feel the wrath of angry power users. Thanks to apps like Clear, even the simplest to-do apps have diehard fans.
Despite vast differences, all to-do apps are rooted in the basic concept of lists, but most bury this basic idea in complicated databases and an abundance of chrome. TaskPaper by Hog Bay Software puts the “list” back into “to-do list” and saves all task lists as plain text files. TaskPaper doesn’t offer a full-fledged GTD experience per se, but it provides many of the key features without the unpleasant complexities.
