Practically everywhere you look, you’ll find dozens of apps that offer to help you create a to-do list. In fact, here at The Real Daily, we’ve reported on multiple productivity apps. If you’re one of those who can create a to-do list, but find it difficult to prioritize your list, Samu might be the app you need to get your act together.
What’s different about Samu?
In Samu, not only do you create a to-do list, but you assign dates and priorities to those tasks, which is a game changer in my opinion. Samu uses a platform based on the Eisenhower matrix. In this system, you decide which tasks have to be done by you, today. These are urgent tasks.
Then, there are tasks which are important, but can be scheduled for later. Third, there are urgent tasks that aren’t important.
Ideally, these can be delegated because it isn’t important that you do them. Tasks which are not urgent nor important can be eliminated.
On March 1, one of the Samu founders posted that it had 423 active users. The app doesn’t seem to be available in the iPhone app store, it’s a desktop app for now. There is a two-week free trial. I will say that I appreciated the fact that they didn’t make me give them a credit card immediately. After the two weeks, it costs $50 for the entire year. It is a fairly new product, but I’d like to say that it looks easy to use.
It’s a minimal platform that won’t take much time to get up and running.
I found the founder and CEO of Samu on LinkedIn. His name is Valentin Scholz and his location is in Austria. He has been quite active in the tech market, creating many different apps that increase productivity and help people connect.
Give Samu a try if you need help prioritizing your to-do list. The Eisenhower matrix works great for long-term planning and short-term daily goals. I think that Samu could benefit a lot of people. You might learn more about yourself and improve your ability to delegate and drop the unimportant tasks in your day. Ultimately, that will help you be more productive than just getting through the to-do list.
