Arrow Task Manager

Please Login to Remove!

I am looking for a task manager program that will allow me to create lists of items that need to be completed that I can view all at once with a check off system for when an item is completed. alarms would also be a plus. Please reply with your favorite recommendations as I would like to get started with one soon.
Thanks in advance!!

There are several task app choices, one of my favorite lately has been MaraTick. Another is Got-2.
Both are totally different, as MaraTick is sort of a 'list of lists', while Got-2 makes use of and improves your current native OS calenar task application already on the BB, but give you more options.

BB Task Pro is also a nice enhancement of the base BB task application. ToDoMatrix expands on the base task application a bit as well.

I like the look of BBTask Pro; good suggestion to at least give it a shot. But to say that ToDoMatrix expands on the base task application "a bit" is an understatement of epic proportions. It actually doesn't expand on the base task app at all. It is its own application with a vastly enhanced feature set.

Does anyone actually pay any attention whatsoever to those icons? Seriously?

The built-in BlackBerry Tasks app might work for you and it is free.

For me it was too limited and actually too hard to use (especially the category filter thing...) so I switched to TaskMaster which uses the same database and co-exists with the original BlackBerry Tasks app. So my tasks also sync' with my iCal.

I am trying out Got 2 and so far I like it. It is free and integrates with the built in calendar and tasks.

I would try them all since whatever you pick you will wind up using for hours eevery day. I wound up buying ToDoMatrix by REXwireless (REXwireless: BlackBerry Software Applications) more than a year ago and absolutely love it. It has lots of features and does take some time to learn. Its also not cheap so it isn't for everyone.
