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.
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?
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
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!
