Firetask app review: stay focused on your project



Most people have a running list in our head of things we need to do or get done but actually following through can be a whole other story. The Firetask app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone and is task management tool that uses David Allen's GTD approach. The GTD approach is "Getting Things Done" and while it may be a newer approach, the project planning app also uses more traditional task management tools as well. It’s a wonderful combination of old and new techniques that users are sure to benefit from.

Taking All the Best Elements

The Firetask app does a great job of combining old with new task management techniques so that you can stay organized, well-managed, and focused. As the developer explains this is a "practical, innovative, and elegant GTD task management tool," which is a great description. The app makes it possible for you to quickly, easily, and effectively view your upcoming tasks that are due, as well as the next tasks. All of this is available in just one single view so you aren't wasting time with this one. There is a "Waiting For" list that makes it also possible to keep tasks you have delegated well-organized.

Never Find Yourself Mismanaged

There is no reason to find yourself mismanaged, over your head, or just generally flustered. The Firetask app means that there is no such thing as forgetting a task. I love the simplicity of this productivity app. There are plenty of task management tools out there but some take so long to input, navigate, and figure out that they end up being a burden. This isn’t the case at all with the Firetask app. Additional features worth pointing out include the fact that you can group your tasks into a projects and categories including the "Waiting For" category.

There are a number of tools and features but they are all quick and simple ones that don't take away from the main goal of this app. For me the user interface is a huge positive in this project management app as it is designed beautifully. Navigate through your tasks with ease, make use of the customization tools, and fill that void you’ve got where organization is concerned.
