Orderly offers a fresh visual interface for iPhone task management

in Productivity

[prMac.com] San Jose, California - Tekton Technologies today is pleased to announce Orderly 2.0 for iOS, a major update to their productivity app that lets users manage to-dos using a unique visual interface on iPhone. Orderly is designed based on how the human mind visualizes to-do lists, and interacts with users in a way that is natural for humans to deal with to-do lists, combined with the power of iPhone gestures.

The update now includes:
* Cloud sync with DropBox, that allows your lists to be kept in sync across iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices
* Move a to-do list between Home/Work views just by dragging and dropping over the Home/Work navigation bar
* Now we have an option for Manual prioritization of to-do lists, for those who do not need automatic bumping up of to-dos to a Higher priority
* Usability enhancements

Once a to-do is created, it is displayed on one of three shelves using Apple's bookshelf metaphor: High Priority, Medium, and Low. Users can instantly view all their To-Dos, expand and contract them with pinch gestures, edit items, change their priority, mark them as complete, or swipe them to delete. The app includes two full-screen bookshelves, Home and Work, allowing users to keep To-Dos posted according to priority and location.

The extraordinary simplicity, practicality, and design of Orderly sets it apart from the many To-Do apps available. Having concluded that pinches and swipes are ergonomically more efficient than taps (which require hitting a target button), Tekton Technologies has employed the fundamental principles of human factors to design a To-Do app that is highly efficient, instantly informative, and accommodative of the daily needs of real people. With it's intuitive gesture based commands, the learning curve for the app and all its features is about ONE minute.

Feature Highlights:
* DropBox sync across multiple devices
* Create a To-Do instantly, with a tap
* Great usability using simple iPhone gestures
* Pinch to zoom in/out, to have a quick glimpse of the To-Do
* Automatically prioritizes your To-Do based on the day
* Option to have manual prioritization
* Long press to delete or drag and drop to move a To-Do to a different priority
* Swipe right to mark an item completed or swipe left to delete an item from the To-Do
* Supports two boards or views. A Home view and a Work view
* Complete To-dos With 1-Tap
* Once a To-Do is completed, it moves automatically to the archives,and you can browse through them when needed

Gestures:
* Pinch to zoom in/out to get a quick glimpse of To-Dos
* Swipe right to mark to-dos as completed
* Swipe left to delete to-dos
* Long press to delete or drag and drop to move a To-Do to a different priority
* Long press to drag and drop to move between Home/Work views

At launch in portrait orientation, the app opens to either the Home or Work page (reversed with a page flip transition). Sticky notes go on one of three shelves, depending on priority: High, Medium, or Low. Users are free to invent their own color-coding for notes, as the app supplies all six of the standard sticky note colors (pale yellow, pale green, pale blue, pale orange, pale red, or white). Completed notes can have their priority set from the Scheduling Menu as a category (High, Medium, Low), or according to a Due Date (user selectable from the date picker). Also available is a Recurring category that can be set for Daily, Weekly, etc., reminders.

The colored, rectangular sticky notes are displayed three to a shelf, or nine to a page. Scroll dots indicate that more notes are viewable on that shelf by scrolling horizontally. Touching any note causes it to grow to fill the entire screen. The notes are clean and spacious holding just six items in full screen mode (before scrolling) and three items in shelf display mode. When enlarged, notes may be edited, and swiping left to right across any item brings up a Completed button beside the item. Touching the button dims the item, but does not delete it, check it, or cross it out. Swiping right to left brings up a Delete button, which removes the item with a text slide animation off the page.

The app includes many customization options including backgrounds, textures, colors, fonts, headings, priorities, etc. Sound effects can be turned on/off, and Archives (completed items) maintained up to 60 days. With a colorful, clean interface for posting, checking, editing, and completing To-Dos, Orderly breaks down long lists of reminders into easily manageable sticky notes.

"Orderly is the most natural way to create your To-Do lists using simple iPhone gestures," states Tekton Technologies. "All your info is presented as simple sticky notes, so that you can create To-Dos and post them on your board, just like a sticky note. But this App allows you to prioritize your To-Dos, without the hassle of misplacing a note or forgetting an item, just because there are too many To-Dos to manage. The best part of the app is that Orderly automatically prioritizes your To-Dos by moving around those sticky notes."

* 4.6 MB
