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.


Let’s face it, you could waste a lot of time looking for the best task manager out there. They all promise that with a quick download or by signing up you’ll become much more productive. However, with so many on the market now it can take hours to sort through them all.

While this review isn’t going to give you a comparison of them all, I do want to highlight the latest task manager I’ve tested out. If you’re looking for a powerful, personal task manager that’s cross platform then might be just the thing for you. Read on to see all that it offers.


When iOS 5 was released, one of its more advertised new features was the Reminders app, meant to bridge the gap between a static todo note and a full-fledged GTD style task manager. I love Reminders for keeping track of all those little things that are so easily forgotten, but find myself frustrated at times by the interface and the amount of time it takes to add reminders. Listbook from No Identity seeks to remedy a lot of what’s wrong with Reminders, but is it up to the task of replacing Apple’s built-in app?

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!


As long as there have been things that humans needed to do, we’ve been keeping up with them one way or another. From scratches on the walls of caves, to strings on our fingers, or pads of paper, we’ve always managed to find a new way to keep ourselves on track.

The problem hasn’t gotten any better, either. Today, we’re bombarded with hundreds of things we need to do. The good thing is that the iPad, your latest gadget, is great for keeping up with your tasks.

The problem isn’t finding a todo list app; the problem is finding the right one for you. There are dozens of high quality todo list apps on the App Store today, and many of them are beautifully designed and offer unique features to help you keep up with what you need to do.

One of the newest todo list apps for iPad, Wunderlist HD, is an exciting multiplatform task management app that has become extremely popular since its release. Keep reading to see what this free todo list app offers and how it can make you more productive on your iPad.
