Prioritizing the hell out of your day

Though it may come easily to some, task management is a skill that must be learned by many. Different methods work for different people, but a constant component for task management is a form of scheduling.

The forms take different shapes and can be found in planners, calendars, and, everyone’s favorite, to-do lists. The new app Sorted, formerly OneReminder, ignites simplicity for to-do lists and can help better one’s task management skills.

All it takes is a text

“Task management fast as a breeze” serves as Sorted’s mantra. The website explains the app as a fast and easy way to manage one’s tasks. A user is able to schedule a number of different tasks with only a few simple swipes.

The app works to help a user plan their day in seconds. According to the site, it works by: sweeping to chain select, pinching to spread out reminders, holding to reorder, and tapping the calendar to schedule tasks for another day.

Sorted’s scheduling is as simple as writing and sending a text.

So many tasks and ideas run through one’s mind each day, and the app serves as an aid for collecting all of those thoughts.

The app works on both smartphones and tablets and is able to sync with iCloud. This way a user is able to transfer their consistent tasks from one device to another.

Sorted also boasts style for their application, as there are a variety of themes a user can select. This makes the app visually appealing so that a user can keep their eye on the prize.

The ticker file system for 2016

The basis of Sorted is built with the tickler file system, “a system that has been used by large organisations to track important tasks since the pre-digital age,” notes their site. “With Sorted you no longer need to keep large folders of notes, reminders and lists. Instead you can use a simplified system with notifications and delightful gestures. Turning bulky folders into two simple pieces: A daily list and a calendar drawer. In short, Sorted is the tickler file system redefined for iOS devices”.

Apple users can get their hands on Sorted now.
