So, to avoid procrastination we need to use an app called iProcrastinate. See? UnProcrastinate might be a better name. Regardless, if you know any Mac user (or, iPhone or iPad user) who has homework assignments, tasks, projects, and needs an elegant, multi-device app to keep track of it all, here it is.
UnProcrastinate With iProcrastinate
When I’m not fighting crime at night, my day job is that of a teacher. My students have the luxury of using Macs at home and school (a school requirement), and many also have iPhones.
Every student has school assignments, homework, and projects that they need to manage. Their problem is universal. Students are busy and life is hectic.
Instead of leaving the details and followthrough to chance, we’ve asked every student in select classes to install iProcrastinate on their Macs.
Why? This very useful and easy-to-setup task management app is simple enough that most students can get up and running in minutes.
And, it synchronizes tasks to Dropbox or iCloud so tasks and projects also show up on synced iPhones. Look how easy it is to setup tasks.
The built-in calendar makes it simple to keep track of upcoming events or tasks or completed tasks.
Setup a task and make it recurring. Tasks can be assigned priority levels, too, and within different categories (all from the pop up window).
Each task can also be setup with step-by-step tracking (good for smaller projects). As the number of tasks grows filtering them to Due Today, or Due Tomorrow, or Overdue, is merely a click.
If you’ve never used a to-do list manager on your Mac or iPhone, iProcrastinate is a good one to start. It’s free and simple to setup and it syncs between devices.
That’s the good news. There’s some bad news, too. iProcrastinate doesn’t have alerts so you have to pay attention and check the due list.
And, for some strange reason, it doesn’t sync with Calendar (formerly iCal previous to OS X Mountain Lion). It’s also missing a specific time for tasks that are due. They’re due only on a day, not a specific hour. Overall, not bad, especially considering the lack of a price tag.
