A sad fact of life is that most working adults are too busy. We have emails to constantly check, appointments and engagements to make (and keep!), contact information to remember, and random thoughts to write down.
Standard notepad and calendar apps may help to some degree with organizing your life, but whether you’re just trying to keep track of the dry cleaning or running your mobile office from your phone (or tablet) it’s probably clear that the result is a jumbled mess of miscellaneous data -- a shotgun approach far from the most efficient form of information management.
This is where TapTask comes in. It looks about as basic as you’d expect a list-making program to look -- in fact at a glance its appearance is almost exactly the same as the Notes app -- but there’s enough additional functionality and ease of use to make it a worthwhile investment.
The main screen lets you create and manage lists you can classify to your own specifications, with item-specific settings for each task in a given list. You can set an alarm to remind you to do something or share your information via email, Twitter, Facebook or Tumblr, though sadly you can’t import data from social networking hubs to TapTask itself. And editing tasks (or even adding additional side notes to them if you want to be really meta about it) is a breeze.
You can also checkmark completed tasks, password-protect certain lists and sort items in order. The no-nonsense presentation isn’t anything to write home about -- it was actually designed by a senior in high school going for a minimalist look. But having your choice of college-ruled or legal "paper" is a nice touch, as is the standard typeface choices available with Notes. It even lets you report bugs in the software. Now if only it made espresso.
The bottom line. If you’re used to organizing via iOS, this is going to make your life easier.
iPhone or iPod touch running iOS 4.0 or later
Extremely easy to use. A lot of useful features. Full export abilities to major social networking hubs.
Basic presentation. No way to import data directly from social networking or email to app itself. Cosmetic features aren’t much more impressive than Notes app.
