The last six months that I’ve been working at Motion Media, I have been looking for a good solution for keeping tasks and ideas all in line. I’ve tried different software solutions, such as Evernote, Things, iCal and a couple other solutions, none of which I am happy with.
I just got into using things again, but I wanted a better solution. I had this idea that what I want is an application that combines Evernote, Things and iCal. On a side note I figured out that I can combine iCal and things, but I would still like the ability to make notes.
My biggest issue with Things is its inability to sync between multiple computers and mobile devices. I want to be able to give myself something to do on one computer and then have it appear on another computer. On any given day I might use three different computers, all which might be mine so having Things in the cloud is where I want it. There is also no way that I’m going to spend $50 on Things for three different computers.
I think since Evernote seems to be an advanced application, I think they should add to-do lists with the functionality like Things and then the support of iCal. Although I do like Evernote at some points I just think it is a glorified text editor.
Either way I’m still looking for the perfect task manager/to do list/scheduler for myself. If you know of anything please let me know I’m willing to try almost anything. I’m also looking forward to using the new project manager at work, as I will be able to document everything I do in the time that I doing it. As we all know I like to document everything I do, hence this blog.
