Reviews | ‘Flowchart instead of list’… New concept to-do management app’Task Hit’

Most of the to-do apps are similar. It shows a list of to-dos and can be checked by the user when finished. On the other hand, the method Taskheat chose is different. You can switch from an existing list-based workflow to a flowchart. By visually connecting similar tasks, you can better organize how tasks are actually being done.

Task Hit can be used on both Macs, iPads, and iPhones for 14 days of free use and for only $10 once. The function is very simple. Projects appear as a list in the left sidebar of the screen, and new tasks can be easily added by double-clicking in the right area. You can see this right area in the form of a flowchart or list. Now you can name the task and set the note, color, tag, expiration date, assignment, location, etc. to your liking.

After adding a couple of tasks, you can connect them to each other by clicking on the small cause’connector outlet’ to the right of the first task. Just click and drag to the other task you want to connect to. On mobile devices, you can connect by selecting from a task list. In this screen, called the spaghetti view, you can change the direction of a connection or delete a connection right away with just a few clicks.

There are two filters in the left sidebar, allowing users to focus on the most important tasks. ‘Today’ shows only tasks to be done at the moment, while’Actual’ shows tasks that do not have links to tasks that have not been completed at the current location, that is, tasks that can be processed immediately. Looking at the overview at the bottom of the sidebar, you can see at a glance how many tasks are delayed, upcoming tasks, tasks without deadlines, and tasks that are subordinate to other tasks.

Task Hit works independently of other To-Do List services such as Apple Reminders or Microsoft To Do. However, with iCloud, it automatically syncs across multiple devices. The iPadOS version works very similar to macOS. The only difference is to tap the center right edge to hide the sidebar. The UI design of the iPhone is also good.

What’s actually a bit uncomfortable about Task Hit is the user interface. It’s too simple to be intuitive. Running the tutorial the first time you run it will be of great help. It is also good to watch the guide video posted on the company’s website. Task Hit presents a new way of managing work. However, a more sufficient explanation is needed for those who are familiar with the existing list-based Todo app. [email protected]
