And with Matalot's unique priority wheel, it allows users to easily and intuitively pick from a wide range of priorities. Choose between priority numbers, presets or both.
"The idea for Matalot was born out of a personal need" said Ofri Wolfus, dPompa founder. "I needed a ToDo manager that worked with me and needed as low self discipline as possible. When I got my new iPhone I realized it'd be a shame not to take advantage of its technologies for making the task manager I always wanted. I truly believe in building products that I'd like to use myself."
