I have a thing about lists and to-do apps. Sometimes they are helpful, but none of them are helpful when the paper version is misplaced or when the digital version never gets opened to see what needs to get done. Yeah, EPIC FAIL.
When we moved to Harrisburg, PA in June of this year, KitchenHubby and I made a verbal agreement that in order for us to be able to afford a bigger apartment (from a 2BR/1B to a 3BR/2B), I’d need to downgrade from my iPhone 4S with AT&T to a prepaid phone with minutes. That phone cost all of $20. I thought to myself, “Why is he treating me this way?!?”
So after about two weeks into living the iPhone-less lifestyle, I was at my wit’ send. The prepaid phone didn’t DO anything. It was *GASP* just a phone!!! With me being the
spoiled brat Loving wife I am, I DEMANDED we get me another iPhone BEGGED KitchenHubby for another iPhone. Because he was tired of seeing me mope and hearing me whine Loves me so much, he agreed to let me get an iPhone 5. Greatest husband ever, I love that guy!! (Everything with a strikethrough is true.)
Man, you should’ve seen my presentation! Most of it revolved around how an iPhone would make me more organized because I’ve spent the past four and a half years with an iPhone in my hand. You can’t just rip someone’s support system away and expect them to survive! I laid it on THICK guys!
So, with my *NEW* iPhone in hand, I’ve been trying to find a great to-do list app. You know, to get and keep me organized (wink, wink). I was hesitant to try yet another app, but When has beauty AND functionality. I like it a lot!
There are tons of iOS apps that aren’t really interactive. You tap the screen, type, tap again, maybe throw a swipe or two in there, and you’re done. Well, I can’t really remember what I typed because those are the exact actions I do ALL.DAY.LONG, blogging from mobile devices.
When you do something new, you like it because it’s fun and different. What’s different about the When app? You get to touch the star icon and then physically move the icon along the rim of the clock face to set/change the reminder time. Sounds like fun!
I could see myself playing with this all day but never scheduling anything. Oh, the life of a procrastinator!!
When you want to delete your task, you drag the icon outside the rim of the clock and this happens:
It trashes it for you. I set my task time for 9AM the next morning. You can’t miss this in the app when the time is set:
Pretty darn neat, huh? Once you have your time set, you just input the task’s information, and you get a notification number and also a cool alert sound. If you own an iPhone, it’s one of those app notification sounds that make you say, “What in the world is that sound? I’d better pull my phone out and check, even though I just checked for emails that weren’t there. Maybe I’ll refresh Facebook while it’s out. What? Oh yeah, that sound was the When app letting me know I have something to do.”
Seriously, that only happens in my head?
I’m going to leave you with this description from the app developer,
“When” groups your tasks under the place of action. Tasks created in the same location will have the same color. And unique icon will be assign to each task automatically.”
Here’s the link to the When app in the App Store. I hope you like it, and I hope it keeps you on track like me.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
