5 Apps for Getting Your Shit Together

Some people like making lists. So maybe I’m not one of those people. But it’s not like I don’t think they’re a good idea. When I was 19 and working as a nanny in Vancouver I paid some guy in a heebeejeebee store to read my palm and he told me I should learn to make lists. Probably that was good advice. He also told me I’d have two kids, and they’d either be gifted or handicapped. So I’m expecting some Abby and Brittany sexytimes to erupt from my stomach Alien/Twilight style.

Oh well.

Anyway, if, like me, you’re thinking 2013 is the year for your list reforming, I humbly proffer the following apps for your services.

1. TEUXDEUX

WHAT THEY SEZ ABOUT IT:

TeuxDeux is a simple, designy to-do app and the first collaboration between studiomates swissmiss and Fictive Kin. If you like making to-do lists, you will love TeuxDeux. The idea was to build a bare-bones, but visually compelling and highly usable to-do app: Use the free browser-based TeuxDeux at work/home and then take your to-dos on the road with the iPhone app. Yay for checking things off!

Things is a delightful and easy to use task manager. You’ll get started in no time, entering and organizing your to-dos. You’ll discover how Things truly makes you more productive. And soon you’ll realize that achieving your goals comes more naturally – one to-do at a time.
