Sync Your Information With Agendus for the iPad

Keeping track of your Calendar, Contacts and Task List can be a nightmare. Too often, there is entirely too much information to plow through and keep up with. The new Agendus app brings it all under control right on your iPad.

All of your Contracts are automagically populated in the app. It accesses the native contacts database and then enhances the built-in iPhone Contacts app. You can even add contacts to certain events within the app to make it easy for you to know at a glance who will be attending what.

Along with this you will find a very full-featured task management solution. This allows you get things done quickly when you’re on the go. There are advanced features built in to the task function, including the ability to set icons for tasks and events, view upcoming birthdays, retrieve your weather forecast and more.

Agendus also has full calendar support. It makes use of over-the-air synchronization with your Google Calendar. Forget having to minimize one thing and open another just to figure out what day it is and where you’re supposed to be. Agendus does it all for you.

You Need Things to do Things

No matter what it is you need to do, you need to keep track of what you’re doing. Everyone has a different system. My Inbox is usually my task list. I know what I have to do, because it’s right there in my Inbox. It may not be a perfect system, but it works for me. I go through my Inbox several times a day, whittling down my list until I end up with only a small number of items left. I may go to bed at night with ten or so things left in there, but I’m usually waiting to give them a proper answer to a question.

Tracking your tasks can be as time consuming as completing them is. What do you use to keep track of yourself? I’ve tried many different programs, but I think I may have finally found the perfect answer – outside of my Inbox. Things is available right now for OS X. I haven’t found a Windows equivalent yet, so if you have – let me know about it!

A magical tag bar automatically appears when needed and adapts to the currently displayed list. It lets you drill down through even the longest list of to-dos. Whether it’s multiple tags, dates, or notes, to-do items display their information on an as needed basis. No more space wasted by empty or irrelevant column cells.

This is being heralded as “THE” task-management system. You can use iCal, but it’s just not as efficient. If you’re looking for desktop task-tracking on your Mac, you definitely have to use Things. It’s just the ultimate program. If there’s enough interest, I may be able to get them to give us a coupon! Be sure to leave a comment on this post letting me know of your interest.

There’s no end to the things you can do with Things: Things helps you organize life and work according to your responsibilities. You can track progress of your coworkers and teammates. Avoid project overload by setting less pressing ones to inactive. Every list can easily be filtered and sorted by due date. Include notes and links to files, web sites or email messages.

You can see how much this can help you get things done. It helps you stay more organized without having to think about where to put things!
