Getting The Job Done - Notebooks for iPhone Adds Task Management

February 19, 2010 in Productivity (E)

[] Salzburg, Austria - Alfons Schmid today is pleased to announce the release of Notebooks 3.1, which adds task management as a new module to its already proven note taking and file sharing capabilities. Notebooks' approach offers several unique aspects:

* Notebooks integrates task lists and supportive documents. An important part of task management is the reference library, which holds background material and supportive information that helps make decisions. In Notebooks, reference libraries and task lists are integrated and always just a few taps apart.

* Notebooks can build hierarchies instead of showing tasks in flat lists. At some stage, a single task may evolve into a small project of its own, and the original project may quickly turn into a hierarchy of sub-projects. Notebooks' structure helps to maintain the big picture and drill down on the detail when necessary.

* Notebooks describes tasks with more than just three words. Ideas can be phrased and developed freely, without being limited by a text box, because writing is one of Notebooks' original purposes. Converting ideas to tasks or projects then requires no more than a few taps.

* Notebooks organizes projects, documents and notes in one place, which won't interrupt the train of thought when ideas are produced and broken down into tasks.

Notebooks is able to deliver these advantages by leveraging its already strong foundation: taking and organizing notes and sharing files. These underpinnings provide an environment to keep all important work, documents, knowledge and memories in a single application on the iPhone. Task management is a natural extension of this context and provides extra benefit for the users.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone and iPod touch
* Requires iPhone OS 3.0 or later
* 1.0 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Notebooks 3.1 is $5.99 (USD) and available exclusively through the App Store in the Productivity category.
