Overall Score: 4.8/5
User Interface: 4.5/5
Ease of Use: 5/5
To create a task you can either select the green plus button or just begin typing. You can enter the task name, the priority (from 1 to 4) of the task, the tag you want to apply to it for quick reference, how long it will take you, and any notes you have.
The Dates tab allows you to set an absolute deadline, a goal deadline, and then the option to add it to your calendar. Adding directly to your Google Calendar is extremely useful as it’ll be there to remind you and will help you organize your time. Astrid can also sync with rememberthemilk.com as well if you prefer.
The Alerts tab allows you to choose whether you want to set up periodic reminders for the app to notify you about the tasks you have yet to complete. You can also choose when you want Astrid to notify i.e. “as deadline approaches” or “after absolute deadline passes.” Select save or simply hit the back button to save into your task list.
A cool quick feature is that if a task is approaching its deadline, long press the task and you can choose to postpone it for a certain period of time.
There are many other customizability options that make this app one of the most useful. If you’re busy often and need a little organization, try this app because it’ll always be with you to remind you.
