That’s not the problem. Almost any todo list or task manager will do the job.
The secret for the app is how quickly items can be added to the list. The secret for getting things done is to have the discipline to check items off the list.
If what you really want is a simple list of items you need to remember to do but don’t have a due date or a schedule, or is not a task within a project, then you’re probably going to like Thinglist for the iPhone and iPad. It’s an almost self descriptive title.
Almost? Thinglist isn’t so much about a todo list as it is about simply and quickly remembering things you want to do at some point in the future.
It’s easy. Select a topical category.
Add a title, then the note to match. That’s it.
Thinglist keeps track of ideas, holds onto information about people you meet or places you went. Found a good restaurant? Make a note of it. Saw a good book title and you want to check it out on Amazon later? Type it into Thinglist.
This is the first step to becoming more productive, but also helps reduce stress. Instead of having to remember, then forcing yourself to remember while under stress, Thinglist keeps track of all those little mental notes and has them ready when you’re ready to do something with them.
Considering the price tag is less than a dollar, Thinglist easily adds value to your day. However, it still requires a little discipline to whip out your iPhone, open Thinglist, and enter something that crossed your mind.
Once you get into that habit you’re more than halfway toward being more productive and much happier.
