If listeners of my podcasts or readers of my blogs or tweets know me at all, they know that I am a productivity junkie! I use a bunch of apps in this specific category. Sorted 3 is one of them. What makes Sorted 3 standout? It’s a unique approach to calendar viewing. Each event is listed as a task. Once the event has finished? Mark it complete. It is also a beautiful and extremely functional task manager that merges your tasks and events together seamlessly. Sorted 3 also has a very unique feature set. One of my favorite features is task auto-scheduling. Load a bunch of tasks to your itinerary for the day and let Sorted 3 schedule them for you in between the events you already have scheduled. Then set the buffer times between each task to ensure you are not over-scheduling.
Sorted 3 is as minimal or as powerful as you need it to be. It’s easily navigated via swiping gestures. It is also one of the most polished apps I have ever used. I’m eagerly awaiting the Mac version to become a reality. In the meantime, get familiar with Sorted 3 on your Mac and iPhone for free and take advantage of additional features via in-app purchase if you want more goodness.
Are you using Sorted 3 already? Has it become your default calendar or task manager? What are your thoughts? Let us know.
