Alternative task managers: On the iPhone, you’ll find nearly as many task management apps as you will fart machines. Fortunately the bar is set a bit higher, and you can find all flavours of task management apps. While there are too many alternatives to name them all, here are a few other great options. There is the GTD system, the $13 Things is a common favourite among iPhone users. (It’s companion desktop app is $US50.) If you want to have a little more fun with your tasks, Epic Win ($4) and Dunnit! ($5) both turn task management into a game. TeuxDeux ($4) is a lovely alternative if you’re looking for something attractive and simple. Lastly, EgretList ($4) is a pretty powerful task manager with a great interface that emulates a more traditional notebook style.[imgclear]
