Francesco D'Alessio also takes money to review other similar productivity app. How does this work? Will other apps get a refund on their money?

Review of Bento
A fantastic productivity app that let's you focus on what really matters Although Bento might be a to-do list app, it's very different from the rest of the group. The app works by letting you put your tasks in boxes, just 3 tasks in each one- a small, a medium and a large. It then asks to you pick which order you'd like to complete these in. This encourages you to prioritise- which tasks are actually important and which aren't. It takes away that daunting, overwhelming feeling you sometimes get looking at a never-ending list of projects and tasks. The app has a beautiful Japanese inspired design, with amazing animated themes and a calming soundtrack when you use the timer. It's clear a lot of time and love went into making this app, I'd highly recommend it to anyone trying to be more productive. Sometimes to accomplish more you actually need to do less.

Review of Bento
You really don't know you need something until it comes along and slaps you upside the head. I was a little hesitant about Bento at first, but since it launched and I've been using it, it's friggin awesome and I find myself wanting to use it more and more! Really desire an iPad version and maybe even a Mac version - all with iCloud sync. Maybe someday?

Review of Bento
After unfortunately being too late for the beta, I was really looking forward to today's release 🍱 I like the compagnion idea, which fits seamlessly with the previous system. I do not find the manual input annoying. But I would love to be able to change the order of the bentos created, have the focus music remain when switching apps and would like to generate own templates. But I know, you have many great ideas in mind and I am looking forward to it

Thanks so much for the kind words, in a few days we're going to put some iOS new feature together to roadmap for sure :) Thanks for the amazing review Daniel!

It’s like a fresh coat of paint on a smartphone industry that’s too much flat. Bento it’s not just a UI revolution, it’s a productivity one too. I’m loving every bit of it!

I would love an api, that I could pull in my couple of todo and go from there. But also see the benefit of manually adding them.

Hi @rob_muise1, it's something that we are actually pursuing, but we want to take our time and make sure we get it right. We hope it's not too far out, but we're focusing on the core experience & methodology at the moment.

Thanks for the feedback Rob, we'll look at this in future - for our launch we wanted to keep things simple.

Review of Bento
My gosh, this is a beautiful app to help boost productivity and improve mindfulness. I absolutely adore the UI, and the very simple approach to time management. There is sufficient flexibility to suit different working methods (I like to build up to the longer task on some projects, but the opposite on others) and the approach is logical and thoughtful. I can see this making such a difference to how my workload as a teacher and academic feels - and wish that there was some hybrid between Forest and Bento, as together they would be such a gorgeous combination. Thank you Bento team, this is wonderful!

It’s great to use, but it can’t be customized for real jobs or tasks. I don’t know who will benefit from it. Maybe a student?
