Firetask Pro4.3

07 July 2020

Innovative task management solution.

Overview

Firetask Pro represents the next generation of easy-to-use, project-oriented task management apps. By combining David Allen's powerful Getting Things Done (GTD®) approach with classical task management features such as priorities and due dates, Firetask creates a unique task management experience.

Getting Things Done

If you don't know how GTD works here are some of the basic concepts:

  1. Perform a "brain dump" -- collect all your open issues and tasks in your "Inbox"
  2. Decide whether tasks are actionable, i.e., you want and can complete them yourself, whether you want to delegate them (Firetask provides a "Waiting For" list), or whether they are more of a "someday/maybe" thing
  3. Organize your actionable tasks into so-called "next action" lists (Firetask provides "projects" for this)
  4. Assign contexts to indicate, e.g., whether a task can only be done in a certain environment (e.g., you have to be "Home" to do clean up your house; we call this a "category")
  5. Perform a weekly GTD review where you repeat steps 2-4 on a regular schedule in order to keep your trusted GTD task management system up-to-date
Why Use Firetask?

Firetask provides a very logical implementation of GTD in a way that concepts such as the "Inbox" or "Someday" are implemented as task statuses; this way, categories (contexts) and project assignments can optionally be already associated within the Inbox and thus, making a task actionable only means changing its status to "Actionable".

Although tasks do not have to be part of a project, projects are first class business objects in Firetask: they have their own statuses, you can organize them via "portfolios" (project folders) and you have full control over the order of tasks in a project. Successful project-oriented task management has never been easier.

Firetask comes with great, visual tools that help you with your weekly GTD review such as "Kanban", "Priorities", and "Dates" views. Simply use drag & drop to move tasks between Inbox and Actionable statuses, into the "Starred" list, or to move them between priorities or due dates.

Firetask is also deeply integrated with the Apple ecosystem with optional integration with Reminders, Calendar events, Contacts, and syncing via iCloud.

Firetask is available on iPhone, iPad, macOS, and Apple Watch providing you with a seamless user experience across platforms.

What's new in Firetask Pro

Version 4.3:
  • Firetask 4.3 introduces completely new, redesigned, filterable choosers for projects, categories, and contributors/contacts that make it especially much easier to work with a large number of projects or contacts.
  • Additionally, the new version now provides detail sidebar editing for multiple tasks -- making it easier then ever to edit multiple tasks at once.
  • The update also includes a number of bug fixes and smaller improvements. Please note that app and brush icons in existing categories may flip after the update, as they were accidentally flipped earlier and this was the only way to correctly fix this issue.

It's extremely hard to manage tasks with Firetask-Pro. I'd like to have a free pro version with limited capabilities to try it out more though. So, I had to switch to another task management app before my trial ended. I know it's not a good practice to review after using 10 days but I'm not open to trials or anything in this era. That's why I switched to an easier and free app like Hitask. Sorry guys at Firetask but I have to rate a 3-star for you.
