I bought the Todo iPhone app yesterday in hopes to get better organized. I have searched and searched for a Todo app for the iPhone for the past few weeks. I even tested out some free ones that looked promising but they lacked the features and cleanness of an app that I needed. One being very important for me was notifications. I forget to look at my Todo list and I can get a pop up reminding me about my task. Since I had an iTunes gift card from my birthday I decided to take the plunge and buy the Todo app from Appigo. I read many reviews and looked at the screen shots and felt like it would help me in my tasks. So far after using it for a day I really love it! It has tons of features and functionality. I have organized my lists for groups of tasks for home, work, my wife’s business, etc. I like the way you can create a task and it can be a normal, project, checklist, call, email, sms, visit location or visit website. The sample tasks are a project task with sub-tasks under it, grocery list which is a checklist, normal task to go to the Appigo website. I have a lot of confidence that this will help me with my ADHD and forgetfulness on things to do. Well, there’s a reminder notification, I better get to work!
Well, I got an iPhone for my birthday! La De Freakin Do you say? It’s a decision I’ve been contemplating for a while now. I didn’t want an Apple proprietary device because it makes me feel so locked down. I’ve been doing research but usually always try to find out Robert Scoble has to say. He’s a tech/gadget guru that I’ve been following since his days at Microsoft.
Here was my criteria for a phone
- Big Screen.
- Internet Savvy device.
- Good battery life.
- fast response time.
- Syncing of Google contact, Gmail, multiple Google calendars
I looked at these phones
- Samsung Jack
- HTC Pure
- Blackberry Curve and Bold
Windows Mobile seemed clunky on Both the Samsung and HTC phones. The slower response times as well as the screen size didn’t help their case either. The Blackberry phones I just can’t get over the fact that I just don’t like them. The text looks funky to me and are bulky.
All and all I believe I got everything I wanted in the phone and then some. I do wish the battery life was better though. Also I’m amazed how dependent I’ve become on the device that I’ve only had 3 weeks. I can now understand why people love them so much. It very simple and easy to use. The amount of apps they have for the iPhone is amazing as well. I will get into that on my next post.
