Check

The ephemeral to-do list for iOS

Check is an ephemeral to-do list for iOS. It provides:

- tasks are removed after a certain duration

- you can define the duration for tasks in hours (default is 24 hours).

- The "task graveyard": Tasks which are not finished within the duration are killed and can be found in the graveyard. You can easily revive them and try them again later.

    Pros: 

    Clean UI

    Cons: 

    Bad concept for getting things done

    Personal opinion about a to-do list is to remind me things I need to do, not to hurry me finish something in a certain period of time.

    I can totally see myself wrote something down, and it disappeared after 24h, but I still haven't get it done. And then I need to go find what I wrote before.

    Set an reminder a few hours before the thing need to be done is a much better way to help me complete my to-do list.

  • Pros: 

    very simple, but useful to-do list with a beautiful design

    Cons: 

    nothing to say here

    It's a nice way to plan your day, with enough pressure to get shit done.

Cool to see you expand on @jsngr's project, @chryb_. I'm still waiting for someone to build a version of this that uses AI to complete the tasks for me. 😁

@rrhoover Thank you! That's a brilliant idea but a bit more complicated than this I guess. 😅

Hi, Hunters! 👋 ✌️ Today, I'm here to launch Check. It's a simple to-do list where the tasks disappear after a certain duration. Or in @rrhoover words: "The Snapchat of to-do apps 👻" 😁 The concept adds a bit pressure which helps me to really get shit done. I got inspired by Gone which was launched on Monday this week by @jsngr. I really love the idea but the web version does not fit my needs so I made my own version. In addition to Gone, I've added some more features: - A custom duration for tasks in hours. The default value is 24 hours. - The "task graveyard": Tasks which are not finished within the duration are killed and can be found in the graveyard. You can easily revive them and try them again. - Check is a native iOS app - Maybe I will add an overview about completed tasks later I hope you enjoy the app and let me a comment. 🙏 😬 😀

The design is clean. But as a UX Designer, I believe, you need to improve the UX more. It's still confusing to add a task. The "Plus" icon confused me every time!

@farhan_rizvi Thanks :) That's a very good point. In the next update, I will let the plus button create the task if the keyboard is expanded.

@chryb_ Cool! That'll add more charm! Good luck mate.

I like the design, but would like to see an archive of completed tasks - possibly exportable.

@rmagrino Thank you! I think about this option too. I will figure it out. What's your use case for exportation?
