Automated reminder applications are a bit of a fetish for me, so it’s no surprise that we’ve had a few posts and prizes in this genre over the past months. And from what I’ve seen, Task.fm is one of the best options available in this category. With multiple points of entry and multiple ways to receive your reminders, it will work for most web workers.
And today we’re giving away 5 free one year Pro accounts.
Update: Once again, the response for these prizes has been overwhelming. It’s great to see these great tools getting good exposure.
Here are the five winners for the Task.FM Pro accounts:
- @_dom – Domanique Alicia
- @adaddah – Azzeddine Daddah
- @kristin_huntley – Kirstin Huntley
“Oursource your memory” is the slogan behind this app. And it’s a good one — that’s exactly what these types of services should allow you to do. Any good GTD’er knows that you need to have a system in place to track and remind you of the little things in your life so your mind can be free to focus on the big things.
There are not a lot of bells and whistles with this application — you simply create reminders. You a few options on how to do that, but in the end, it’s simply about getting the details out of your head.
Our Look/Review at Task.fm
Late last month, I wrote about how to use Task.fm as your virtual assistant. And indeed, the service can fit the bill.
For those familiar with GTD, think of Task.FM as the backbone of your digital tickler file. Create your reminders and then forget about them.
Due to the multiple modes of entry and reception, Task.fm is flexible — and similar to having an assistant to whom you would have remind you of various tasks. Now, it’s not a project management system. But if you think tickler file, you’re on the right track.
