This isn’t an official count but by our estimation, Apple’s iOS App Store is currently home to about 4,973,812 task manager apps. The reason is simple: task managers fall squarely into the category of apps that are very easy for developers to make. Making them well, however, is a different story entirely — which is exactly why we feel the need to tell you when one of the most interesting and creative task apps out there is made available for free for a limited time.
Dubbed Task Player, Sarun Wongpatcharapakorn’s task management app for the iPhone is unlike any such app you might have used before. Instead of supplying users with the means to create endless tasks and lists that can often be painful to organize and manage, Task Player treats task management like music, allowing users to arrange tasks into playlists.
It’s a very interesting and unique take on task management that could potentially change the way some people view productivity. It also features a gorgeous interface that works great in iOS 7.
From the app’s description:
Don’t just manage tasks, PLAY them!
Group your tasks as album and play it. Like music player, but for tasks. Tasks management you haven’t seen before.
Like a song, you named your tasks and specify a length of time for each of them. Group your related tasks into an album. When you want to time your tasks just play it. It will alert you when you need to move to the next task.
