Weave is a To Do list app. We've all seen those before but Weave offers some fundamental differences. Instead of solely tracking what needs doing, it also keeps notes on income, expenses, projects and time spent making it an ideal way of keeping track of mostly everything any user could need.

The appearance resembles a leather tome of sorts and it's just as simple to use. Adding To Do list items is easy enough with the option to add notes, due dates as well as project tags. Further information can be added in the form of time spent, money made, money spent and any connections between projects.

Dividing up items into projects is particularly inspired as it makes it easy for any user devising a new project to see what needs time spent on and how much money is involved. Being able to look at it on a day by day basis is also convenient with the ability to set daily alerts useful for the absent minded. Weave looks set to be a great way of boosting productivity.

Weave is out now. It's a free app and it's compatible with all iOS devices.

Richard Branson Launches Project Magazine

No one has ever accused media mogul Richard Branson of playing it safe, and today the multi-millionaire shook things up again by announcing the debut of Project, an iPad-exclusive magazine. While Project will publish a monthly "issue" it won't be a bunch of static content like subscribers would get with a traditional periodical. Instead, the app will morph and change over the course of the month, adding new content and incorporating content from readers and bloggers. For instance, the mag is currently hosting a Facebook contest which is inviting users to redesign the front cover. The entries will be available for download in issue three and the winner will get to design a crowdsourced cover early next year.

If the idea seems hard to wrap your head around, that's because it is, and even Branson had trouble figuring it all out at first. "When my daughter Holly, who is Special Projects Manager at Virgin Group, first told me that she had agreed to sponsor an iPad-only magazine idea from one of our young entrepreneurs, Giovanni Donaldson, I thought she was talking double Dutch!" he said. "It wasn't until Anthony, Gio and Holly showed me the amazing, innovative editorial and advertising in PROJECT that I ‘got’ how groundbreaking digital publishing can be. To be frank it blew me away."

The project is being overseen by former FHM editor-in-chief Anthony Noguera, who has big plans for the publication. "I must be the luckiest editor alive," Noguera said. "To be given the opportunity to create a magazine that is completely unique and innovative, to work with like-minded journalists, contributors and advertisers who are just as passionate and excited as I am about PROJECT has been inspiring. I am proud of PROJECT. Proud of what we have achieved and delighted to have played a small part in determining what will become the future of what we as readers expect from the magazines of tomorrow. Today, PROJECT has set the standard."

Project is available now for $2.99 an issue, so go ahead and take a peek if you're curious. What do you think? Is this the future of magazines, or is Richard Branson just throwing away a lot of money on a really crazy venture?
