Task Aware Gets Things Done With A Difference

July 8, 2010

If you're the kind of person who saves tasks in Todo or Things, and then completely forgets about them once you've left the house, Task Aware might just be the perfect app for you. Say, for example, you've got to do some generic, mundane task like picking up dry cleaning. You launch Task Aware, save the task and the location of the dry cleaners. Then, when you're within a preset vicinity of the dry cleaners, your iPhone will buzz and remind you to pick up your clothes.

Even without this great feature, the app itself works well as a basic task management application; it's well designed, fluid, and attractive. The fact that it buzzes whenever you're near a task is simply an added bonus - albeit a brilliant one. As for the price, you get what you pay for with Task Aware. The ability to have a location-aware task management app does indeed come with a $4.99 price tag. Personally I think the app justifies the price. When you compare it with rivals such as Todo ($4.99) and Things ($9.99), you find that Task Aware's price seems to fit within the market. Additionally, the app will only work with iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS models running iOS 4 - which is due to the multitasking aspect of the application. Be sure to check out Task Aware in the App Store now! Please let us know how it works for you in the comments box below.
