My new favorite app for Capture is Drafts on iPhone.
It’s a delight to use. You can tell the developers pay attention to detail, they also provide lots of updates. AND it’s only a buck (I don’t want to hear and bitching about paying for apps; you should WANT to pay for apps).
Anyway, highly recommended to get thoughts out of your head and onto something else!
The app I would suggest depends on your personal quirks and goals for task management. For personal tasks I use Orchestra because it has a great iPhone app (which is the main way I manage, I rarely use laptop) and I think the voice-to-text feature is super slick. The only thing that is missing is tweaking it to manage projects better (for project management at work I’m currently using Asana)
Are you using one of these apps, or something else to manage all the stuff on your plate
Workflowy is a super cool organization app that I found through this Convo Group post. The video below will explain what it does better than I can.
If you have an iPhone you will be sad to learn that Workflowy doesn’t have a native app yet. But, the web version does work really well on my phone. The following will show you how to create a Workflowy icon that you can click on instead of bookmarking it in Safari.
If you are unfamiliar with native vs. web mobile applications check out this article. It explains the pros and cons of developing both kinds of applications. I personally learned a lot from it.
STEP 1: GO TO WORKFLOWY.COM AND SIGN UP
STEP TWO: CREATE SOME LISTS (IF YOU WANT)
STEP THREE: CLICK ON THE ARROW BUTTOM TO THE LEFT OF THE BOOKMARK BUTTON. THEN CLICK “ADD TO HOME SCREEN”
STEP FOUR: ADMIRE YOUR NEW WORKFLOWY ICON
What’s cool is that this can be done to lots of different web apps. I’ve since replaced iCal with Gcal and the mail app with Gmail.
