Description

Firetask Pro represents the next generation of easy-to-use, project-oriented task management apps. By combining David Allen's powerful Getting Things Done (GTD®) approach with classical task management features such as priorities and due dates, Firetask creates a unique task management experience.

Firetask is also available for *macOS* (sold separately) and syncs via iCloud.

GETTING THINGS DONE®

If you don't know how GTD works here are some of the basic concepts:

(1) Perform a "brain dump" -- collect all your open issues and tasks in your "Inbox"
(2) Decide whether tasks are actionable, i.e., you want and can complete them yourself, whether you want to delegate them (Firetask provides a "Waiting For" list), or whether they are more of a "someday/maybe" thing
(3) Organize your actionable tasks into so-called "next action" lists (Firetask provides "projects" for this)
(4) Assign contexts to indicate, e.g., whether a task can only be done in a certain environment (e.g., you have to be "Home" to do clean up your house; we call this a "category")
(5) Perform a weekly GTD review where you repeat steps 2-4 on a regular schedule in order to keep your trusted GTD task management system up-to-date

WHY USE FIRETASK?

Firetask provides a very logical implementation of GTD in a way that concepts such as the "Inbox" or "Someday" are implemented as task statuses; this way, categories (contexts) and project assignments can optionally be already associated within the Inbox and thus, making a task actionable only means changing its status to "Actionable".

Although tasks do not have to be part of a project, projects are first class business objects in Firetask: they have their own statuses, you can organize them via "portfolios" (project folders) and you have full control over the order of tasks in a project. Successful project-oriented task management has never been easier.

Firetask comes with great, visual tools that help you with your weekly GTD review such as "Kanban", "Priorities", and "Dates" views. Simply use drag & drop to move tasks between Inbox and Actionable statuses, into the "Starred" list, or to move them between priorities or due dates.

Firetask is also deeply integrated with the Apple ecosystem with optional integration with Reminders, Calendar events, Contacts, and syncing via iCloud.

Firetask is available on iPhone, iPad, macOS, and Apple Watch providing you with a seamless user experience across platforms.

Ok for Organizing Task and Projects

CMac_NJ

This review is a little jaded because of my requirements. What I wanted was an app that can sync with my iOS reminders as they are along with the Tasks that sync from my Outlook and give me a Kanban view of them. This creates a reminders list called “Firetask” on my iPad (it does not sync with “my” reminders or tasks - it creates a new list). I don’t want another list to manage - I want to manage the ones I have. The tasks on my iPad can be synced via cloud with another device but what I wanted was something that took all of my lists and gave me a better view.

If you are not looking for what I just described, this works great. For me, I’ll have to go searching again or wait for an update if this is the direction the vendor is going.

Best all-in-one task management system out there.

I’ve tried more task management systems but I would want to admit – including earlier versions of Firetask. The latest version pulls it altogether in a cohesive system that is fast and efficient, once you get the hang of it. Highly recommended.

Great organizing app

Easy to use with some unique and useful options. The Kanbana type view with cards is very useful for brainstorming, and organizing if you are a visual thinker. It has my favorite name for a task/management/list type app, too.
