Every time you turn around, another company is promoting their new task management tool or Web app. I often wonder if this isn’t the fastest-growing sector of Web application technology today. Web2.0 and social networking? Bah, that’s so last year. Today, it’s TASK MANAGEMENT, brother!
Okay, maybe I’m just getting tired of seeing so many lame options for such a mundane thing. Granted, the old days with the Post Its and cork boards are long gone for most of us, but how many new applications need to come out before task management is finally perfected?
Well, now that I’ve seen ToBeeDo, I might be persuaded to make the official announcement that the final day of task management has arrived. No new apps need apply.
Alright, I’m still exaggerating (some), but not nearly as much as you might think. Not only is this one extremely easy to use, but it’s actually managed to replace my old standby, Dorisapp. It’s still single-user or small group centric, which I prefer, and it’s highly intuitive to use—you’ll figure it out in about a minute and a half. Plus, it integrates with your Google login, which means it’s perfect for me because I’m a Gmail lover.
“I’m your Gmaillll loverrrr! Tell me there’s no otherrrrr!”
Once again, I digress. Here’s the skinny on ToBeeDo, though: easy, has all the features you expect, very elastic, and customizable. Projects can be as simple or complex as you prefer, to-do can become task management with only the addition of more information (or added bullet points/drop-downs) and time tracking can even be done for individual tasks or entire projects.
In all, ToBeeDo is a great app and has finally shown me that it’s possible to improve on something as mundane as task management. Maybe now they’ll start another site and finish off the tired world of project collaboration next.
