Product Description

Product Description
======================
Your Personal Assistant
Taskpad is a simple, intuitive, and powerful tool. It is designed to be a 21st century tool for effective task management. Unleash the power of your device and make it your personal assistant.

Sync to Google tasks
Never loose your tasks. Taskpad supports two way syncing between your Taskpad and google tasks. You can potentially sync between your multiple android devices. You also have an option to sync only when connected to Wifi.

Attach Pictures, Voice Recordings, and Contacts
TaskPad integrates seamlessly with your device's camera, voice recorder, address book, and alarms, effectively taking your productivity to next level. You can click a picture and attach to the task. You can record a voice as an attachment and attach a contact from your address book to the task for handy reference later.

Quadrants with in each list - Organize and Prioritize on ROI
Unlike simple list-based task management where tasks are not prioritized as needed, Taskpad allows you to differentiate tasks based on priority and ROI, and thus helps you to work on higher priority tasks at all times. Taskpad is able to mix and match tasks with different priorities and categories but avoids clutter through highly effective organization.

TaskPad organizes your tasks in to color coded lists. You can customize the name or color of the list to suit your taste. Under each list, the tasks are organized in to four quadrants. The four quadrants define the ROI of each task. Most notable is that quadrants are customizable. You can change the labels of quadrants to suit your style of priority management.

Proactive Reminders
TaskPad takes reminders a step ahead and helps you be more proactive--you don't need to wait until there is a reminder. When you click on one of your reminders, you can also view all the overdue reminders and active reminders coming up for the current day. You always have a flexibility to snooze them based on changed priorities.
Search Tasks

TaskPad supports quick search of your tasks within TaskPad. Also, TaskPad can be configured to support searching of your tasks from outside the app using your device's search button.

Switch Between Views and Virtual lists
As you switch between different tasks throughout the day, it is sometimes easy to glance at all your tasks at once. TaskPad provides a convinient way to view all tasks across the lists. The out of the box virtual lists are done tasks, all overdue tasks, or all today's tasks in one glance.

Customization
TaskPad allows plenty of customizations including but not limited to font sizes, styles, reminder preferences etc.

Widgets
Perhaps one of the best features of Taskpad are the TaskPad widgets. Beautiful widgets allow you to access almost all features of the app from one place. The 4x1 Widget also refreshes your active reminder tasks every hour on to your device desktop. You can also use next/prev buttons to scan the reminders.

A Note on App Permissions
From the Developer: "TaskPad uses the Reads Contact Data permission to enable the ability to attach a contact to a task. Users can click on the contact icon within TaskPad to open a contact and call, e-mail, or message the contact from within the app."

Instead of unsubstantiated claims and subjective opinions, let's take a look at the actual functionality of this app and whether or not it's useful.

When you first open the app, you're presented with a 4-way split screen, with each "quadrant" being titled; Forward, Neutral, Reverse and Parking. Right off the bat, for me anyway, that presents a bit of a head-scratching "huh" moment. But then I pressed the little '?' button on the bottom left of the screen, which then opens the help page on my browser. I then navigate to their FAQ section, where they explain the concept that those quadrants are analogous to driving; So 'Forward' would be for tasks that drive you forward towards your goals, and 'Neutral' are more common tasks that need doing but don't contribute to a goal (ie. buying groceries), and so on.

Don't like that driving analogy? No problem, just press on any of the title names and change it to whatever you like...Maybe Urgent/High/Medium/Low as in priorities? Whatever you like.

A common complaint I've seen in the reviews is the "ugly colors". Well, those colors actually serve a purpose! Within each of the tasks you create, you can also set them to a category...And for those categories you can assign a specific highlight color. So...Within each of the quadrants, you can have whatever number of tasks and those tasks can be color coded for easier distinction of the type/category of task it is.

Don't like the colors? Fine, don't use 'em.

Also within each task you can attach a contact, sound note, and/or capture a picture from your camera. A fairly nifty and I think quite useful and helpful feature...!!BUT!! unfortunately the sound note and picture capture aren't working for me on my Nexus One (Android 2.3.

The negative reviews are from people that apparently didn't take the time to actually use the app. It might be just me but the user interface is WAY better than all the other task managers I have used. It does need refinement though.

I have used other apps such as ASTRID, Evernote, & Note Everything. This app is not bad at all, except for a couple issues: recurring events & changing folder names.
It does exactly what it advertises. I like the quadrant view & to me it is a pretty simple app to use (not sure what people are complaining about).
If you do not care to sync to Google calendar or Gtasks online it is a very capable app. If you do, I recommend Note Everything. I am actually using both. This for non syncing items due to the quadrant view. Hope this review actually gives you real help.

Simply put, it does what it says it does. You can see the full app description on Amazon.com although the mobile version doesn't give you the FULL product description.

I installed this reluctantly after reading everyone's reviews. The app isn't that large: only about 700kb to start. Since I had read quite a few reviews, I headed straight to the developer's FAQ by clicking the "?" on the main screen. A few people had mentioned that their tasks were deleted if they changed their quadrant title, so I changed mine upfront (although I really hope they fix this soon). For me: High, Medium, Low, Me Time. I created a few simple tasks and new folders, was able to easily change the colors for each of the folders, add some new folders, and move my tasks around between them. I like the options for viewing my tasks, weather by day or by folder or everything at once.

There are a few things I would like to see added to the app (therefore 4 stars): Ability to "Drag & Drop" tasks between quadrants, Ability to set up recurring tasks (I have to take out the garbage every week ya know :-P), More colors to categorize with, The ability to pull existing appointments from my calendar to add them to my task list. I'm sure I'll come up with more things as I use this more. It's a keeper for now.

I can see why there are so many one star reviews of this app. When you first open it it can be a little overwhelming. When I think of an application that is supposed to help me keep organized, and on task with my appointments, and to do lists, I do not imagine something as "complicated" as this app appears to be.
I believe the user interface could be scaled down a little bit. I believe the user interface looks overwhelming and that is what scares people away.
If and when you take the time to fully navigate and investigate it Will become easier. That said, why does one need to thoroughly investigate, and navigates, and click the little "?" symbol just to work an app that is supposed to help you keep your to do lists organized?
It's a little too much. That is just my humble opinion though.
I can easily open up my Filofax, use the Post-it note app, or an easier to navigate To Do list app To achieve the same thing with less frustration.

Read lot of negative reviews and almost passed, but decided to install anyway.

The app is not intuitive off the bat. You should read the help first to understand how to use it.... I like the way it helps me organize different categories. It may be buggy but I hope that the developer will support and improve.
