Gneo is an interesting task management app that tries to do things very differently. On first glance, the app appears to be a cross between Trello and any other GTD app, but what sets it apart is its advanced feature set and rather unique take on overseeing your entire task list.

The app isn’t without fault and, in some instances, the app can be frustrating but it sets itself apart with a fresh perspective on task and project management that stops this from being just another todo app.


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!

There is a glut of task management apps cluttering up the Productivity section of the App Store: Wunderlist, 2Do, Priorities, Remember the Milk, Things… the list goes on and on. One app that caught my eye in this particular category, however, is Astrid.

Astrid first rose to fame on the Android platform and was subsequently released on iOS back in late 2011. Since then, Astrid has developed quite a following and as we are celebrating all things productive here on iPad.AppStorm this month, I have decided to take a closer look to see what, if anything, makes Astrid stand out from the crowd. Hit the jump to read on.


A long time ago (nearly two years, to be precise), when iPad.AppStorm wasn’t even born, we looked at OmniFocus for the iPad over at iPhone.AppStorm and we liked it very much – giving it a prestigious 8 out of 10 rating. Since then, however, lots has changed with OmniFocus (including, unfortunately, the price) so let’s take a look at the latest version and see how it stacks up.


As time passes and iOS software matures, the iPad has increasingly crept into each aspect of our digital lives, taking over light word processing duties, casual gaming, and media. But if there’s one thing I’ve always felt the iPad excels at, it’s task management.

There’s a lot of software in the App Store which promises to be the perfect companion for getting things done, yet no matter each individual app’s approach and strengths, I find myself returning to Things. So why continue trying other options?

Well, while Things is excellent, I feel that I could really make use of an app which has some more options and features – it’s with this in mind that I decided to check out 2Do: Tasks Done in Style.

Old Competition Post

Only yesterday we reviewed Firetask here on iPad.AppStorm, I’m excited to announce that today we can offer three promo codes to three fortunate readers. Firetask is a serious attempt at combining the classic approach to task management with the ideas of David Allen, the pioneer behind GTD.

Reviewing Firetask we had this to say:

Firetask is a powerful task management app that implements GTD concepts beautifully and is soon to feature cloud synchronisation. All at a stunning price!

It’s a task management app designed specifically for the iPad that sports a clean interface and a veritable multitude of functionality, including the the GTD trademark ‘Someday’ list.


I can’t help but be intrigued whenever I come across a new productivity app. Ironically, it’s probably a serious blight to my actual productivity.

So when I came across Firetask, a task management app that purports to effectively combine the advantages of the classical approach with David Allen’s “Getting Things Done®”, I was eager to find out exactly what it was like. Read on to find out whether Firetask could be the perfect task solution for you…


Throughout the ages humans have always had to keep track of things, from counting on an abacus, to remembering the milk with a post-it. The iPhone, and now the iPad, have provided us with a vast array of possible solutions for helping us to remember and stay organised.

Interestingly, one of the announcements regarding iOS 5 at the WWDC keynote was about the introduction of an integrated Reminders feature. I have to say that for general use it looks great, it even works with iCloud so that all of your devices are kept accurately updated!

As with several other native applications, Apple hasn’t come straight out and targeted the heavy power user. Instead, Apple has built what looks to be a solid and indispensable app suitable for everyone, but that leaves space for more powerful and feature-rich applications that cater for all possible needs.

Let’s take a look at some of the apps that are unlikely to feel too worried, some great solutions for keeping yourself organised!
