Many task manager approaches are themselves a big 'task' to learn and use effectively. I've seen a lot of productivity gurus admit that they were more into the management of tasks using their tool of choice than they were into actually completing tasks. Sorted is different. It has a very specific mantra: schedule when a task should be completed to help ensure you get it done. Sorted even helps with this goal by showing you free spots in your daily calendar when you can put a task. You can then move tasks around or expand/compress how long you think they will take. Using this method, you set your priorities and then plow through your day with helpful reminders.

Sorted also has some very useful advanced features: A single task can have a checklist of sub-items (great for a quick grocery list). Tasks can have notes with styled text (headers, etc.). Tasks can be arranged into lists, list sub-categories, and marked with tags (these features are great for organizing and using Sorted for larger projects). There's even an "Auto Schedule" option which will look at your open tasks and place them in available slots throughout the day.

Whether you are looking for your first task manager because you have been struggling with the simplicity of Apple Reminders or if you feel that your current 3rd party task manager is just not working for you, try using Sorted 3 for two weeks. Since switching to Sorted months ago, my productivity has greatly improved. I don't think I would be as successful with any other tool. Version 3 takes this to an even higher level, and the devs are committed to continued releases and features.

Last note: Sorted 2 had both an iOS app and a Mac app. Sorted 3 is starting out as iOS only but the new version will also be coming to the Mac. This allows you to maximize your efficiency by getting reminders and managing your tasks on multiple devices.

Pros:

Task management that doesn't get in the way. A simple but powerful interface that lets you add, rearrange, or mark your tasks complete.

Cons:

If you've used Sorted 2, Sorted 3 is very similar but may take some time to get used to the new features. Be sure to use the in-app Guides.

Thanks for the review. In Sorted³, we also add more traditional ways to manage your tasks. So, it should be easier to learn and start using. When the users become more familiar, they can start using the gestures and speed up the workflow.

Sorted is a delightful and fresh take on the old productivity song we're all singing in some way or another. The idea is to tightly integrate calendar events and task management. Thereby calendar events gain some task-like features, they can be checked off and removed from the remaining schedule. Tasks also gain some calendar features: they are integrated part of the calendar view once a completion date and time is set.

All in all I really enjoy using the app, maybe due to the other unique features Sorted packs.

- Markdown-like entry of subtasks and other notes

- ingenious rearrangement of tasks from projects into new projects or existing ones

I am really curious where the journey will go!

Pros:

calendar + tasks, new and fresh UI interactions

Cons:

limited planning depth

Thanks for the review, also the inspirations of planning depth that lead to some of the features like "Reorganize".

Great new version!

Pros:

Great UI, great app responsiveness, nicely thought out menus

Cons:

Gestures could be a little better

Thanks for the review. Can you elaborate a bit more on the gestures? Is it missing something, or not easy to learn or use?

Really nice app, allows you to schedule your day and see the gabs that allow you to do those odd tasks. Looking forward to really start to use it for projects and see those things completed quicker and with more effiency.

Pros:

Very easy to plan your day, add Tasks and repeat them, and replan when things change are a joy.

Cons:

Typing everything in is a pain, although it does allow Siri to add tasks I haven’t used this.

Try it - you’ll like it! Some of us don’t need a million options for keeping track of our days - Sorted is the app for that. It’s clean, simple, intuitive, STABLE, available on all your Apple devices, AFFORDABLE, doesn’t require a damnable subscription, leverages your existing iOS reminders and calendar and adds in a few impressive additional features as well (check out auto-schedule!)
