Greetings, everyone. It’s official, the vernal equinox is here. Spring is in the air. I’m ready for it, how about you?
I’ve been thinking about branching out beyond the usual Blackberry apps I use for time management, and thought I’d explore what’s out there for future use. Today, I’ll share my top five choices for further investigation. Maybe they’ll be helpful, in case you Blackberry users have been thinking the same. The descriptions below are from each app’s website.
1. SwooshAlarm lets you create as many alarms, timers, and world clocks as you want.I rely on alarms as reminders to let me know what, and more specifically when, something needs to be done. [Though an alarm is only as good after it's set, this is an app that looks pretty interesting.]
2. SlickTasks lets you easily organize your tasks and sub-tasks into a folder tree. You can set reminders for your tasks, so you never forget to complete a task again. With SlickTasks, you can stay focused and get things done. You can even create recurring tasks for your daily, weekly, monthly or yearly tasks. [Tasking is big with me, especially with a number of music projects thrown into the mix, not to mention home improvement tasks. While the Blackberry’s native Tasks app, coupled with Google Calendar works well, this app is worth a second look.]
3. Role Call Tasks is as close to a pen and paper list as you can get. With help from thousands of professionals using Role Call® every day, new version 18.104.22.168 features an unrivaled data entry system. A task with due time, notes, category, and reminders is created by typing a single line of text. Without ever leaving your screen, type task after task while watching your to do list grow.
4. HoneyDew Synchronized To Do List is a super simple, easy to use synchronized to do and task list that makes all your paper lists obsolete. It allows two BlackBerry® smartphone users to keep consolidated lists that are always up to date and always with you. [Ahh...a time management app that two Blackberry owners can use simultaneously! This would be GREAT for my wife and I to use, as we are always TALKING about tasks to be done. The first task, in this case, is to get her to start texting me :-)]
5. Prompt – GPS Calendar. The FREE version of multi-ward winning Prompt, the GPS calendar, tells your latest departure time and weather to expect at your destination. Because Prompt automatically predicts the start locations for each trip, it can effortlessly calculate the mileage for your expenses, saving you the trouble [and some time ;-)]
Well, that’s about it for now. Being an iPod Touch user, I’ll most likely do a review of similar apps for the iPod Touch/iPhone. Please feel free to suggest any of your favorites. Happy Wednesday!
