What's New in Version 1.5
Hey Busy peeps!
Busy made friends with Apple’s latest and greatest operating system, iOS7.
We also taught Busy to add up your tasks from your Inbox and Important lists and display them over the App Icon. Reminding you to stay focused on getting things done. Just don’t feed it after midnight and you should be good.
- Your Busy friends.
Things + Clear = Busy
If the apps Things and Clear had a baby, that baby would be Busy. You’ve got the sleek interface and gesture-controls made popular by Clear, and the project-based organization of Things. Sure, there’s no syncing with any cloud or other reminders or task list, and yes, it does cut off text at a certain number of characters (which are different whether you’re viewing the task in the list or in Edit mode), but it’s very simple to use and quick to get a handle on the organization and functionality.
I need the note-taking fields and some of the additional options other apps like BusyToDo offer though, if only to explain more about the “projects” Busy lets me organize items by. If BusyToDo offers too many options, Busy offers too few.
The interface and ease of use make this app something I’ll keep around—but the character limit (without expanding lines or a way to view the additional text) and lack of a notes field are what prevent me from switching to Busy entirely.
Simple but good app.
Don't expected to move mountains or wash your dog for you. But, Busy is a good, simply use app. It allows you to enter lines of text and flick them away as you complete things off your to do list. I find most useful for simple things like a grocery list, where I can flick items off of my check list.
The app also has the feature to drag previously completed items back into the inbox. From there they can be completed again or assigned as important or for later. It also has a reminder alarm, however, the alarm can only be set for one time to remind you of all tasks.
I really would like to see the developers implement multiple alarms that can be assigned to each specific task to be done. I also want them to make the back button a bit larger. But you can still navigate to you main window with a swish of your finger instead.
All in all, it's a very simple app, that is useful. And that usefulness, is due mostly to how simple it is.
Pretty good, but needs improvement
It's clean, simple, and not buggy. However, it definitely needs a little more.
-A "selection" option. (Ex. I don't want to individually move/delete things. It'll be easier to 'select' a certain amount of things and move the group around).
