iAdd is a productivity app. iAdd is not a to-do list app, not a task manager, nor a time manager. And yet, it lets you organize your life in a way that won't make you a robot, obsessing over unfinished tasks, but still letting enough room to accomplish a lot during the day.
It does that by splitting your activity into three main realms: Assess, Decide, and Do.
In Assess you add everything that's in your mind, potential tasks, events, projects (with subtasks) and ideas (which can be later promoted to projects). You can even archive items that you know you're gonna need later into Collections. Once you can't assess something anymore, you send it to Decide.
In Decide, you "sign the contract' to actually do that task, project or event. You assign a deadline and a context to it. When you're ready, you send the item to Do.
And in Do, well, you just do what you sent from Decide.
This framework follows a very natural pattern in which we are allowed to just assess our environment (sometimes known as "procrastinating"), plan things according to our own schedule and do them by only focusing on what's to be done.
Apart from that, iAdd, the app, lets you:
- use the framework from your iPhone or your iPad (universal app, buy once, run on all devices)
- sync your entire database with Dropbox
- email your projects, tasks, events or ideas
- generally, speaking, it lets you have a life too, by generating a feeling of balance and presence
