Next Deadline

Slick Deadline Manager

#4 Product of the DayAugust 27, 2014
I just started working freelance full time, so I don't have the luxury of a project manager anymore. It's great that there are apps like this. Hopefully it comes to Android soon too :-)!
This seems like it would be a great tool for students to keep track of course workload and deadlines.
@ShloimeFlg Yeah, that sounds like a great resource. I thought about it with housework as well. Sometimes I say to myself "Okay, I'm going to clean out the fridge by Thursday..." and on Thursday I promise myself Friday, etc. etc. Having it in writing probably changes the behavior. I wonder if @nireyal has anything to add about habit forming in regard to deadlines?
@UXAndrew Deadlines can be good and bad. Psychologically they can serve as a "pre-commitment device" but they can also add a sense of failure if they're missed which the brain can interpret as a punishment. The important thing is to make these behaviors things people want to do as opposed to have to do. see this for more:
wow, this how-to is awesome!
@bramk Thank you! :)

@_liat Hi Liat, just wanted to say I love the design of this - really nice! Are there any plans for a desktop/web app?
@riaface Thank you! There are plans but now I'm waiting for enough people to download and pay so I'll have money to make those plans :)
@_liat Always the way of it. But good luck, the app looks good.
@_liat I've been showing Next to fellow students at HLS. Everyone loves it. I'd recommend keeping students in mind. This is great for tracking course assignments and readings.
Very cool! One detail I particularly enjoy: you can see previous + future upcoming tasks just on the periphery of the main task. It's a subtle affordance that really enforces a strong idea of future & past tasks.
