What is it about?
Handle is great for extremely busy people. You can manage your to-do list on a daily timeline, take a gander at your inbox, and view your calendar all from within Handle. Swiping from to the right will even turn an email into a task that you can add to your to-do list. The app is quite polished looking, but isn't an app you want if you prefer a simple check list.
For those who...
- Treat email as to-dos
- Want a central hub for email inbox, tasks, and calendar
Not for those who...
- Don't like complicated apps
- Don't want their email with tasks and calendar
Why we love it
We deal with email daily and sometimes those emails end up being to-dos for the day, or the next day. Handle lets us treat our email as to-dos when necessary, while also being a convenient standalone task manager. And having your calendar just a tap away makes it easy to organize important meetings with others, all without having to leave your inbox.
Handle is FREE but there are more add-ons
