Smartphones can, and for many people do help maintain a level of organization. Finish, an app built by Basil Ltd., is one of the most feature-rich and functionally-sound we’ve stumbled across to date, and with more than enough features to suit everybody’s needs, its the kind of app you’ll wonder how you coped without. Check out the details and download link after the jump!
I must have written a review or report on at least thirty to-do list apps for iOS and Android over the past couple of years, and although there have certainly been some stand-outs, Finish is everything I could want, and more. Thus, I’ve felt compelled to share it with our readership, and if you’ve got $0.99 to spare, a love for minimalistic interfaces, and prefer apps which run as though they’re stock, please lend me your ears for a couple of minutes.
Getting started with Finish (no pun intended) is easy. You select a name for your task, add a date, and you’re away. The app is built to prevent you from procrastinating on important tasks, using its own apparent intuition to re-jig your schedule as the day presses on. Often, these kinds of apps lambast you with notifications to the point where you end up ignoring them by default which is counter-productive when you’re trying to get stuff done. Finish works in a different way – allowing you to acknowledge a notification if you’re still in the middle of another, backlogging task, but not disappearing completely from sight along with the multitude of other tasks you’ve discarded and never gotten around to doing.
As well as working nicely around a busy day, it also looks the part. The UI is minimal without being plain, and only presents you with the necessary information at any given moment. Nobody wants a to-do list app which places the learning of its functionality as your next task, and luckily, Finish doesn’t fall victim to this common error with overloaded apps.
At 99 cents, I cannot recommend this app enough, and whether you have a problem with procrastination, or just want to keep on top of things, this app is for you.
