"The app is simple as described but it flat out gets the job done. I leave my iPad sitting on my desk at work and haven't used a sticky note since I purchased this app!" — HMRswoop

• Next Thing has an average rating of 4.5 stars because it really does boost productivity!

• WHAT'S YOUR NEXT THING? Next Thing is new kind of task manager. It is designed to sit on your desk beside your computer, keeping you focused on the next thing you need to do. And with simple gestures to browse and complete tasks, Next Thing doesn't take attention away from the real work at hand.

Don't worry about setting up categories, projects or contexts. Even dates are optional—enter only as much information about a task as you want to and edit it at any time.

Don't know when you'll need to complete a task, but want to be sure you capture it? Leave any task unscheduled and it will stay in your Inbox until you're ready to work on it.

Rotate your iPad to portrait view to clear away distractions and spotlight your current task. When you're done, swipe down to complete that task and across to move to the next one. Simple and speedy.

Swipe (or tap) to complete, drag to reorder, flick through your task list—let your fingers do the task management.

Need a tickler file to keep track of what's due today, tomorrow, next week, or next month without seeing everything at once? Our folders show the number of tasks scheduled at a glance, with more detail the closer a date gets.

Customer Reviews

Fantastic App for using *while* you work...

I've used this for awhile and have started to notice that my work habits have changed. I leave it running on my iPad next to my computer while I'm working. So, I can always see what I should be working on. A number of times I've noticed that I had been distracted from my work, but then glanced at the iPad and remembered what I should be working on. It is not that I forget what to do, but having the app up keeps me aware that I should be doing it.

I also use it to schedule reminders and events in the future. Whenever there's a quick thought or idea that I need to act on at some point in the future, I put it down. This is a great relief as now I never have to worry that I'm forgetting a date- like someone's birthday, or an event.

Easy-to-Use / Very Limited Functionality

You're up and running very easily with this app. The actions are simple and intuitive. So, if all you need is a simple "to do" list that you can refer to as the day goes along, then this is a great app for you. If you want more than that: text formatting, integration with other software, export, print, etc. then you may want to look elsewhere. This app is easy-to-use but not deep. Perhaps future versions will provide additional capabilities.


This has a place on my home page. I have other more complicated apps where I have integrated lists. I use this one to simplify my day and just see "what's next". I can concentrate better just seeing the next thing. The things I don't get done automatically get save to next day. Hoping for colored cards.
