I am still looking for a perfect for me task list manager, which has taken me to downloading Tasks Free to my phone and tablet. Let’s go through my review:
Phone and tablet sync: you sign in with Gmail account, on both platforms and this allowed for quick seamless syncing between phone and tablet.
Home page widget for quick access: the home page widget comes in several configurations, which is nice for a personalized experience. I chose the 2×3 setup, then pulled it to 2×6, which allowed me more tasks visible, with easy scrolling for lower tasks.
Recurring task feature: easy setup for recurring tasks, with alerts on preset time.
-This review is going good so far, I am pleased-
Tasks and subtasks: tasks are easy to setup, but no availability for subtasks.
-Guess I spoke too soon.-
Notes section on tasks/subtasks: No subtasks, so that is null, as for notes on the tasks, you can, sort of. Each tasks is a single check box, where you can add descriptions or notes.
Alerts for priority tasks: yes, this feature is available. It is easy to setup reminders and mark tasks as higher priority. This is nice when needed, and otherwise isn’t even moderately confusing to setup or review alerts.
Email capability of tasks and reminders: Not an option, you can set reminders to alert you, but they aren’t emailed to you, nor is a summary of due tasks.
Ability to change color of tasks: you can pick light or dark for the home screen widget, but the note themselves aren’t able to be color coded.
Clean UI: The interface is simple, clean and easy to operate. I actually enjoy the ease with which I can add tasks.
In summary, while I like the overall ease of use, the inability of subtasks is a true deal breaker. If you are looking for a basic task list this is certainly for you, but it just falls short of my overall needs.
*extras* although not on my list of needs, I do like how it syncs with Google tasks, which is nice because it allows me to view my tasks from any computer as well. Nice little hidden extra.
