Oh hey! Look! It’s ANOTHER task/project-management application! Hold on for a second while I minimize the two other task-management apps on my computer, both of which are currently clamoring for my attention. Okay, now I’m…dang it, I gotta turn off my iPad; you don’t want me distracted by the to-do apps I’ve got synced on there. Oh, and while I’m thinking about it, give me one more second to hide my email app, otherwise my concentration will get diverted by the reminder emails coming in from the various task-managament apps that my coworkers use. Okay, now I’m ready. Whatcha got?

Action Method, huh? What’s so great about that? “A radically different approach to productivity,” you say. Well, as a frequent reader of the AppStorm network, I have to tell ya, virtually every task-management app on the market claims to do something “radically different.” But okay, I’ll bite. Let’s give it a whirl and see if Action Method lives up to its marketing.

In today’s mobile and tablet-centric world, it often feels like the best apps come out only for smartphones. Web apps and traditional PC apps often aren’t as fancy as their mobile counterparts. Plus, they’re often much more expensive than the dollar or two you might pay for a high quality mobile app.

This morning on Hacker News, I came across a new web app from the developers of a popular mobile to-do list app, Do It (Tomorrow). It turned out to be an impressive example that web apps don’t have to be saddled with bland interfaces. Best of all, it’s been designed to make it easier to manage your tasks, so it’s an elegant UI with a purpose. Keep reading to get a quick tour of Do It Tomorrow and see if this free web app is the to-do list you’ve been needing.

The world of web apps is full of productivity tools that promise to make it easy to organize your thoughts and tasks. From simple to-do lists to full-fledged project managers to mind-mapping tools, there’s more ways than ever to save the things you’re thinking about and need to get done. The problem is, it’s so easy to spend more time tweaking your tasks than actually getting your tasks done! You can obsess over the dates of your tasks, try to find the perfect tagging system, or get your mind-map to look as awesome as that snazzy infographic you saw the other day.

At the end of the day, though, usually it’s still difficult to keep track of everything. You’ve spent all of this time organizing, but now your tasks are so compartmentalized that you can’t find what you need to do.

Thoughtboxes is a brilliant solution to this problem. Similar to many of the simpler web apps I love, it’s been designed with less features than most other task management tools. Instead, it nails the essence of managing your projects, letting you create pages of tasks organized into sets that work the way you want. Let’s take a closer look.

TidyLists: Simple Yet Effective Task Management

Task management applications are pretty popular as we crave to organise our lives by putting them online. Our days are crammed full of things to do – business, personal and pleasure – but a lot of the time we have wider, long term projects in the pipeline. You might be planning a vacation, or working on a project at work. In these cases, today’s application might come in very helpful!

I can vouch for the usefulness of today’s review. I’ve been in the position of developing or working on a project, and actually strung together my own percentage calculator to work out the progress of the work. It’s great to visually see how far you are from completion.

Beneath a simple interface is a simple web application that’s called TidyLists. TidyLists might be simple, but it’s sweet enough to actually add some function and be useful in whatever tasks you are planning. Add tasks, check them off and then check your progress. That’s the basic idea behind TidyLists.

The trick to making a really good web application is to not over-complicate it so that the user doesn’t know what they’re doing. It’s all about simplicity. Creating an app that fulfils a user’s needs without leaving them confused or bombarded with features they’re probably not going to use is key. One app that fits right into this mold is Coolendar.

Coolendar is more than simply yet another calendar app. It doesn’t promise the capability of mapping out each second of your day but what it does do is a lot better than that – it allows you to manage your time and tasks without having to complicate anything. Read on to find out more about this rightly self-proclaimed “cool” app.

Most of us struggle with too many things to do. From projects you need to complete at work or school to the random things you need to fix at your house, there’s simply too much to do each day. There are dozens of to-do list and project management apps for Windows, Mac, mobile, as well as standalone webapps so you can keep up with your tasks online. Many of them are beautifully designed and are simple to use, but they’re often expensive and only work on one platform.

Very few to-do list apps offer an integrated solution to keep your tasks synced between all of your devices. The last thing you need to do is to manage a complicated to-do list sync when you’re already struggling under too many things to do. But many popular apps still don’t sync seamlessly. Today we’re going to look at a new beautifully designed to-do list app that blows all of this away: Wunderlist.

It’s easy to get overwhelmed with everything you have to do. From work and family to project ideas you come up with, it’s hard to keep everything in your head. To-do list apps have become increasingly popular in recent years, and most of them are designed to help you remember everything you need to get done. The problem is, most to-do list apps only run locally on your computer. There are tons of to-do list apps for iOS, Windows, Mac, Android, and more, but most of them just keep your tasks right there on your device.

Web apps solve this problem since your data is stored in the cloud and can be accessed anywhere, anytime. There are many to-do list webapps, but today we’re going to look at one of the more advanced ones online: 42tasks. This app brings the power of desktop task management apps like Things to your browser. Keep reading to see what it has to offer.
