Top Stories task management
iPhone/iPad: No matter how many filters, labels and other tricks you have set up, organising email is never an easy task. Mail Pilot seeks to make that a bit easier on iOS. While it comes at the high cost of $15.99, it’s a robust email app that works with just about any email account.
All too often, our to-do lists fail us. They’re too long and unreasonable. You don’t have to completely ditch the to-do list though; you can actually feel more productive if you implement a priority rule for your tasks, such as the 1-3-5 rule.
Mac: If you don’t want to just leave your notes, to-dos and passwords sitting around, Bluenote is a Mac app that encrypts everything you put into it. The app locks the contents behind a password so nobody can see what you’re up to.
iOS: Astrid, one of our favourite to-do apps, now features full Siri integration. You can ask Siri to remind you of something and have it directed right to your Astrid to-do list, which you can then see on your phone, tablet or on the web.
