OneDay App

I am always on the lookout for any new and interesting app that might help me and my disorganize self be more organized. I would normally go to itunes, get 5-8 new productivity apps and download every single one of them. Then, I would use one app at a time and see if it works for me. If it works for me, I keep it! If not, I dispose of it and look for another one.

I am sooo excited about my latest app discovery called OneDay App. It combines my need for lists, daily schedule and daily reflection. I AM IN LOVE. Let me show you why.

The starting page looks like this:

At the top left you see the current month and year, followed by the time, and lastly you will see the day and the date.  It is followed by a text reminding you of certain things (you can see what it says right?), and under the text is this huge plus sign which would allow you to add more tasks for that day.  Underneath the plus sign you would see the breakdown of the tasks as those which you still have to do that day, how many important things needs to be done and how many you've done!

If you tap on the All plans Today button, you would see this:

It shows you everything you need to do starting with the tasks you have yet to complete. It's arranged in order of importance. If you would scroll down you would see this:

The tasks I have finished that day. You can see above some things I have worked on/completed today. Here are other things:

Notice that I put in mundane tasks such as writing lists, drinking water...and yes BATHING! You see I'm a mom, these things sometimes suffer if I don't make a conscious effort to do them.

Now, let's go to my favorite part of this app. The daily reflection. At the end of the day, you are prompted to  review your day and reflect on how productive you are and how happy you are with your performance.

Then at the end of it all, you will be given a grade depending on how much of your plans you've accomplished. Isn't that so cool? The nerd in me is tingling at the thought of being graded. Hahaha.

I love so many things about this app but there are some things which I think they could improve on. First, you cannot really pre-plan your lists. They have to be done on a daily basis. So for example, I have a weekly date with Ruy every Friday which I wanted to schedule. I put it in as recurring things every Friday but it still appeared on my To-do list today. It's a small inconvenience but it would be nicer if the to do could have a start date too.
