[prMac.com] Munich, Germany - MeisterLabs, the company behind the popular mind mapping tool MindMeister, has released the highly anticipated iOS version of its new online task management platform, MeisterTask. Just like the online version, MeisterTask's mobile app scores with a beautiful user interface design that makes task management not just intuitive, but enjoyable.
MeisterTask 1.0 for iPhone and iPad serves as a perfect companion, or even alternative to the web app. "Basically, everything you can do in MeisterTask's online version you can also do on your iPhone or iPad," says MeisterLabs Managing Director, Till Vollmer. "Users can quickly set up projects, capture ideas, leave comments, add images, create new tasks, move them, edit them, complete them - everything is done within seconds."
The app consists of three basic parts: One, the dashboard, which offers a personalized experience unique to every user; two, the Kanban-style project boards, which can be shared with an unlimited number of collaborators and ensure that everyone within the team is on the same page at all times; three, the task dialogs, which offer space for all task-relevant information from due dates to comments.
Already included in this first version of MeisterTask for iOS is the practical Apple Watch functionality. "Running MeisterTask on the Apple Watch isn't just a passive experience," explains Till Vollmer. "Through predefined messages and voice input, users can instantly reply to notifications and comment on tasks. Creating, assigning and completing tasks are all done with a few quick taps, so that users can truly stay on top of their to-dos without having to take out their iPhone at all."
