[prMac.com] Houston, Texas - A.J. Lester & Associates announces the release of It's Done! 1.0 for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. The innovative app is a task completion confirmation tool that helps users remember whether routine everyday tasks are done. For instance, ever go back to check whether you locked the door or turned off the stove? Ever forget whether you took your vitamin? It's Done! knows and confirms whether you did it, and can even send a text or email to let others know the task is done.
With the It's Done! app, users simply check-mark "Done" their routine everyday tasks (lock the door, turn off the stove, etc.). Later, when the uneasy thought occurs, "Did I remember to ?", It's Done! confirms whether the task is done. No need to check or re-check. No worries at all.
One vital and potentially life-saving feature of the It's Done! app is its ability to automatically generate a text message or email to send others when a task is done. So within seconds of the kids locking the door, and check-marking It's Done!, the parent receives a text confirming it. Or when an elderly mother takes her daily medication and check-marks It's Done!, her son immediately receives a text message or email that mom took her med. The app provides welcome assurance of task completion without the need to call or worry.
While most calendar/task apps remind users to do things, the It's Done! is designed to help users recall with certainty whether a task is actually done. Generally, most people don't need reminders to lock the door, turn off the stove, feed the cat, or take a daily vitamin. The problem is recalling at a later time whether or not you did it. Everyone knows that feeling. It's Done! eliminates that feeling of uncertainty by remembering later what you do now.
For example, when going out, lock the door and tap a check-mark next to the "Lock Door" task in It's Done! Fifteen minutes later, when that uneasy feeling occurs, "Did I lock the door?", simply look at the app. The check-mark and the timestamp next to "Lock Door" confirms: It's Done! No need to go back to see if the door is locked. In this way, the It's Done! app is both a timesaver and a booster of memory-confidence.
And if you really forgot to turn off the stove? The It's Done! app remembers that, too. The empty check-box next to the task confirms it and lets you take necessary action. It's Done! can literally save the day from potential disaster.
For quick and easy set-up, the It's Done! app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch comes pre-loaded with 40 routine everyday Tasks. These include Lock Back Door, Turn Off the Iron, Take Daily Vitamin, Set Burglar Alarm, Lock Car, Take Morning Medication, Feed Dog, Feed Cat, Close Garage Door, Turn Off Oven, and many more. Users can also create custom Task Names (such as Feed Hamster or Do Arm Exercises) and list as many Tasks for the day as desired. Tasks can quickly be set up as One-Time, Recurring, or Scheduled for future dates. Tasks can also be prioritized and categorized for easy sorting and viewing..
The It's Done! app is designed for constant everyday use: Tasks first appear with an empty check-box and message "Task Awaiting Completion". When a Task is done and the check-box tapped, a bright green check-mark appears with a click sound and phone vibration. These visual, audible, and tactile cues are unique to the It's Done! app and help users become memory confident with each completed task. A timestamp is automatically added to confirm when a task is done. The same task to be done multiple times in one day can be checked, unchecked, and checked again, with a new time stamp appearing each time the task is completed. The app keeps track of how many times a task is completed and all completed tasks are stored in the app's history for ready review at any time.
It's Done! even has a Task Reminder alert that can be set to pop up at the appointed time and open the app to complete the task. Though most routine tasks are not time-specific, the Task Reminder is helpful for prescribed medication times, pet feedings, important phone calls, and other time-specific tasks.
The It's Done! app has a complete website with video User Guide, FAQ, Reviews, Customer Support, and even a Blog.
The creator of the It's Done! app for the iPhone, Howard "A.J." Lester, points to the vital public service the app provides to users. "Everyone forgets whether or not they did something every now and then," Lester said, "and, for those people, It's Done! is a fun and handy app for confirming stuff is done. This app may also be especially valuable to those with OCD who are 'checkers' and others who may be memory-challenged due to medical or age-related conditions. We think users will find It's Done! to be the ultimate tool for resting easy."
