Great Way To Management The Madness!

I have used this system for a few years now and it has made my life much simpler. Further, they have continually improved the product over the years and worked out the bugs. I use this across multiple platforms to stay on top of life.

Nice App

Perfect for turning ideas into plans.

The more I use it not only is it easier to use but works to fulfill its mission.

Very helpful app!

This app really shines in its simplicity and ease of use. That’s not to say, however, that it’s basic. It allows you to control tasks and to-dos in a very-easy-to-learn and systematic way. I’m planning a major move, several important projects and work, and a trip abroad in addition to my daily duties, and so far this app has really helped me keep my life together and productive.

Free version Help

Seems there is little option to get help with the free version IOS app. I don’t see any option for help under any IOS menu including settings or the search menu. Thanks!

Unexpected Cost

I like the app to organize my various projects all in one place. So, I paid $10 for the phone app, with the understanding that it could sync to my computer. Wonderful. Then I open the link to sync with my computer only to find they want to charge me another $20 to download a computer app required to sync. No thank you. $30 for an organization app is too much. I don’t like feeling like I have been tricked into a purchase. Better to be up front about the cost so customers can make an informed purchase. Deceptive.

Nice program

I’m sue I could utilize more features but this is a good program whether you just want an ongoing todo list or want to sync all to your calendar


Is there a way to have tasks repeat multiple times a week or month, but not have to choose specific days or times? Just a general “3 times per week” type of choice.


This is a great app all around. It will be apart of my daily management for a long time. Very simple but efficient and I appreciate all of the guides on how to use the app.


I really like the app overall. I can organize the projects however I want and I love that feature. However, I wish there were subtasks. Without that feature I don’t feel like I could use this on a daily basis.
