It’s hard to believe it is already the middle of August, but as summer winds down, it’s difficult not to think of the giant to-do list ahead. Whether you’re taking your vacation in August, working or getting ready to head back to school in September, getting an early start on your to-do list may give you an organizational edge.
Take a look at these 4 apps to help enhance your productivity and stay on top of your daily, weekly and monthly tasks.
Google Keep offers a range of ways to organize your ideas, thoughts and tasks, including:
Rated as number one in last year’s Terabit’s back to school blog post, Todoist allows users to keep track of tasks and projects. It is great for those who simply require a distraction-free design, although that’s not to say Todoist doesn’t have many features. You can use many of the features for free, such as creating, organizing and collaborating on tasks, as well as setting deadlines. However, to go beyond the basics, you must get premium, which is C$39 per year. With premium you receive greater control with the ability to set task reminders, customize templates and personalize task views. Todist is available on just about every device imaginable and is offered as a browser extension. Check it out here.
Next up is Remember the Milk, an app suited for the busiest of times. This app has been around for quite some time, thus it has seen numerous updates to keep up with consumers needs. Some of it’s main perks include the ability to create subtasks, which contain reminders, priority levels and due dates. From there, the app will create Smart Lists, which are based on the features mentioned. Similar to many of its competitors, Remember the Milk offers an attractive free version, however, users must pay C$39.99 per year for the pro version that incorporates more features.
Last, but not least is Picniic, an organizational app perfect for families that has received much praise. Picniic allows for families to collaborate in one space (an app) to create to-do lists, shopping lists, as well as share photos and events on calendars. The app is available on desktop & tablet, as well as iOS and Android. Picniic states almost all of the features are available for free. However, with Picniic Premium, users can access that much more. The app is available for free or C$49.99 per month.
