Jack B. Nimble provides a trip down memory lane with its retro visuals and twitchy gameplay.

Why we picked this?

Cuecard focuses on visual cues instead of text. When recording a new task, simply choose from a vast library of built-in cues or create your own from a photo. You’re able to attach notes if need be, but the idea is to keep things simple. Then whenever you want to see what needs to be done, just glance at your grid of visual cues. Cues that are more important than the rest can be highlighted in red.

You find task managers to be cumbersome. Cuecard simplifies the process.

You require advanced features like subtasks and cloud syncing.
