[prMac.com] Kiev, Ukraine - Independent developer Gleb Reutov today is delighted to announce the release and immediate availability of Taskoverflow, his new iOS task-manager. Many of task managers have location and time reminders or repeatable tasks, but no great way to arrange them depending on location, time or date. With Taskoverflow, even if you don't set a reminder on scheduled task, Taskoverflow notifies you by setting its badge on the app icon.
If you tried other GTD apps before then there is very likelihood that you often was confused about all those hundreds of buttons and five level menus. So it was decided to make the UI for Taskoverflow as simple as possible (but not simpler). On the main screen there are only two buttons: "add" and "arrange". Task options are hidden in few collapsable sections. All simple and clear.
But simplicity doesn't mean primitivism, so the goal to keep Taskoverflow simple and functional brings many original decisions to app. For example to see completed items you just need to rotate phone upside down.
It was decided not to make separate button for project creation, because often you realize that you need project after you have already written the task. Instead you should add tasks as well as add subtasks then. Because a project is a bucket of consequent tasks, the first subtask always should appear under project name. This simple trick caused dramatical increase of productivity because when you reading your tasks for today it's important to see simple instructions, that you can do right now.
"For now I'm working of next version of Taskoverflow, where you'll see a lot of other helpful things that make you more productive and more focused. Also I'm going to release iPad and Mac version in near time to give 'full circle' experience to customers." said Gleb Reutov, developer of the app.
