Taskos to do list allows you to add, edit or delete tasks, write notes, set alerts and even make calls. New features : Google task sync, easy & intuitive home screen widget, customized categories, improved sorting, swipe completed tasks, quick edit of tasks information.
Pros & Cons:
- Syncs with Google Tasks
- You can add items via voice or text
- Mark items as complete by swiping them, swipe the other direction to add them back to the list
- Shaking the phone clears all finished tasks
- Right now, Google Tasks is the only service it syncs with
There are a lot of task managers in the market, but Taskos manages to distinguish itself with a very nice feature set. First of all, the ability to add items via speech to text is a huge time saver. I found in testing it that nine times out of ten, it got it right on the first try. And those few times it didn’t, trying again speaking a little more clearly got the right results. When you add an item (or touch it to make it the selected item), you’ll get a toolbar pop-up where you can categorize it, change the due date and priority, even share it with your social networks if you choose.
The other two very cool features of Taskos is using the swipe gesture to mark an item as complete, and then reverse-swiping it to mark it as active again if you accidentally cross something off you shouldn’t have. And then, give the phone a solid shake, and it will bring up a prompt asking if you want to move all the crossed-off items into your done list, keeping your primary screen neat and clean.
You can choose to view all items, or view them by category, which is nice if you keep a variety of lists for different purposes. And the ability to sync with Google Tasks is nice, as it means you’ll always have a backup, and access on your computer. Right now, Google is the only cloud service Taskos syncs with, but the developer has said he is working on adding more at a later date.
Very! Task lists are, by their nature, a way to stay organized and keep track of what needs to get done, as well as things like shopping lists or anything else you can imagine. Taskos makes this very simple and easy to manage.
Ease of Use:
It’s very easy to use. As I mentioned, I really love the swipe-to-cross off feature, and the speech to text makes adding a lot of items quick and simple.
This is another app you’ll use all the time if you’re a task list junkie.
It’s easy to use, and even comes with a basic tutorial when you first log on (which is also accessible via the settings if you want to see it again) to walk you through some of those main features.
