With a slightly cheesy name, Taasky bounds onto the App Store, providing a useful way in which to keep track of one's tasks, appointments, and to-do list. It's reasonably stylish to look at without appearing garish, and it's very simple to learn.
Capturing the flat style of iOS 7, Taasky is certainly intuitive. One simply uses a mixture of gestures and taps to initiate everything, plus there's a clearly laid out tutorial ensuring that no one is going to get lost here. It's possible to view all tasks en masse, but it's more convenient to view things according to type. Starting out, users can add tasks to home, work, friends, or a shopping list, with it possible to change these options around to whatever suits the user's needs. Each is color-coded so it's clear to see what each task is related to.
Adding a task can be as simple as needed. It's possible to just add a task to a category and leave it at that, but further options are available. Setting a deadline either by date or time is possible, as well as adding a note for further information. Adjusting priorities is simply a matter of dragging tasks around to line them up accordingly. To further add to Taasky's flexibility, it's possible to synchronize tasks with iCloud as well as with the user's calendar, although there's no way of sharing tasks with other people just yet (an update in the future is promised).
Consolidating tasks and appointments isn't a new idea, but Taasky manages to make it feel fresh again. 'Easy to use and stylish to look at' is a concept that iOS has been built upon, and Taasky easily embraces that here. It'll certainly boost many users's productivity levels.
