TaskCracker provides an intuitive visual matrix for your Emails and Tasks (including Google Tasks) instead of a plain list. It is extremely helpful when you have a couple dozen Emails to follow-up on.
TaskCracker follows Eisenhower Matrix (Stephen Covey "First Things First") principle by distributing tasks in Urgency / Priority dimensions.
How it works:
* Mark Emails with a Star / Follow-up in your email app (say Gmail or Microsoft Outlook)
* Go to TaskCracker
* Move Emails to proper quadrants to plan your time
* Optionally create Tasks not related to Emails
Email and task services supported:
* Gmail (Google Tasks)
* Google for Work (Google Tasks)
* Microsoft Office 365
* Microsoft Exchange
* Connect to your email account to work with existing Emails and Tasks
* Powerful visual Urgency / Priority matrix
* Multiple accounts supported
* Use colored categories
* Bulk move Tasks and Emails
- fixed synchronization of large amounts of folders (1000+)
- fixed issue with removing accounts
- confirmation of account deletion added
Ratings and Reviews
Great way to manage task visually by week
If you like to manage task visually, and plan out your task for the week ahead, then this is a great option. I really like the task cracker view where all of my unscheduled task show up in a list on the right where I can then drag a task to the day of the week that I want to tackle that item.
Many of my task start from an email, such as a response I need to send or something I need to follow up on so I really love the feature where I can flag an email in my mail app and it will show up in task cracker where I can then schedule it on my next task review.
What would make this a 5 star is if it integrated with Apple reminders for the task portion and if flagging of any email in mac mail would result in a task showing up in task cracker. Currently only task in gmail show up and only flagging gmail emails in my mac mail will result in the task showing up over in task cracker. Also would like to see a month view in task cracker so I can move task around easier when planning task further out into the future.
If you use gmail for task and for email then TaskCracker is worth a shot.
This is unusuable without shortcuts
It is indeed quite limited, particularly because all the shining well organized screenshots, trick you to believe that this app makes organizing your tasks a breeze. In actuality it's almost the opposite, since there is absolutely zero support for shortcuts (I mean... not even the standard command-W to close a task or command-N to create a new one). Everything needs to be done with the mouse.
Not worth want you pay for it
Buy beware, you buy it you own it! It is nonrefundable. I was extremely disappointed in the limited features of this program. This is a $2 program dressed in a $40 suit. I bought it in the morning and regretted it by noon. Try to get a refund and got "This purchase is not eligible for a refund.” Could be a neat little program for a couple of dollars but it is a rip-off for this price.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
