Productivity can often be limited on portable devices due to small screen sizes, the lack of hardware keyboards and more. But what if there was a different way to look at mobile productivity altogether?
This week's Android app of the week is a newly updated productivity app called DropTask that aims to help users visualize their workload in a more engaging way.
"It's been reported that the majority of us have 150 individual tasks, meetings, emails, routine items, and action points to take care of at any given time," said the company in a blog post. "Well, DropTask's here to help. Gone are the days where you have to sit down, plug in and load up your PC to get things done. With our new Android app you can manage whatever you want, whenever you want, from wherever you are - giving you the complete flexibility to pick up where you left off."
What makes DropTask so special? Well there are a number of things. While many might be fine with using more traditional note-taking apps such as Google Keep in lieu of a to-do list app such as DropTask, for some this might be a little too stale.
DropTask lets users easily add organization to their to-do list, in a way that doesn't look bland and boring. Once tasks have been added, users can simply drag and drop those tasks, allowing them to appear in a more distinct and colorful way. Easy task is given its own little circle that is easy decipher from others.
Not only does it look good, but it's highly functional too. Users can assign reminders and importance levels to each task, giving more important ones more screen-space. Users can even assign each task with a level of "effort required" for that task.
Furthermore, the app isn't only limited to a one mobile device, or mobile devices at all. Once a user has an account, they can sign in on a computer, other mobile devices, and so on, allowing their to-do list to always be accessible.
The price of this highly functional daily planning machine? Free. Well, at least there is a free version. The free version allows for users to create and assign up to five group projects that can be shared with one person.
If you need to create more group projects or share them with more than one person, the premium version, DropTask Pro, requires a DropBox pro account, which costs $6.50 per month. The app can be downloaded straight from the Google Play store, or if you're an iOS user that happened to stumble upon this Android article, it can downloaded from the Apple App Store too.
