When Apple rolled out iOS 5 way back in 2011, one of the software’s highlights was a new app — Reminders — to help you keep track of tasks.
Since that time, Reminders hasn’t evolved much. However, the type of task manager people are looking for has changed dramatically. TickTick offers greater control, more granularity, and is an all-around better to-do list app.
In the old days, a piece of string tied around a finger served as a reminder. You just couldn’t forget what the string was for in the first place.
Today, there’s a better way to use your fingers to remember your keys, passport and other personal items with the iOS app Don’t Leave It! Type items into the app you can’t be without and an alert will go off should a certain distance separate you from that particular item.

There are numerous productivity apps out there – no matter what platform you’re using (except perhaps Windows, but that’s another story). Many of them are simple to do list applications. These apps don’t dive in too deep into what David Allen calls the “Horizons of Focus” but tend to focus on the immediate future. That’s all well and good for the things you need (or want) to do now, but it’s not so good for those things down the line that you need (or, again, want) to accomplish. And when you’re a student going back to school you need to be able to look right in front of you and further down the road – and do so in an efficient and effective manner.
We have a lot to do – and having some form of trusted task management app in place is key in getting the most out of you time. This Cult of Mac Deals offer is ideal for those looking to take their to-do list prowess to the next level.

The principles that have helped entrepreneurs and startups thrive are all entrenched within this intuitive application. It’s essentially setting your tasks on a tee so you can hit them harder and with more focus than ever. And you’re going to get this app for just $30 for a limited time thanks to Cult of Mac Deals.

Apple has added a new page of iPhone app suggestions for business users. The page is titled “iPhone at Work” and it contains apps broken down into five major business: organize your day, view your business, manage projects, meet anywhere, and travel light. Each of those sections is further divided to show off the ways that the iOS apps Apple bundles with the iPhone and third-party apps can be used in business.
