Default Task manager software?

Please Login to Remove!

My apologies for posting something that's already been discussed, but I've been doing a LOT of research on this (here & other forums) and still haven't been able to find the info I need.

I'm looking for a good to-do application that allows tasks & sub-tasks. I've downloaded both Mara Tick and got-2. Haven't evaluated the paid software yet, but it looks like ToDo Matrix (don't like the price point) and PocketDay Lists might have what I need. Does anyone know if either supports having sub-tasks? Thanks!

I believe that Next Action may support subtasks.Also take a look at Viira.

Thanks for the response. I downloaded a trial version of PocketDay Lists. Gonna go with that. It has all the functionality I'm looking for, plus a price I like. (Handango even has a 20%-off sale that ends tonight!)

I have been looking for a good task app too. I downloaded (and paid for) e-mobile tasks, but am asking for a refund because it's really not that good (which someone on here warned me about, but I was stubborn and didn't listen!). The biggest problem is that a lot of the apps out there work with the calendar which I don't want! I just want a really good task management program that allows me to sort, is visually appealing, and doesn't require 20 clicks to do one stupid thing (which is my biggest complaint about e-mobile tasks, along with the incredibly small font).

Are there any programs out there that do this??

Task management is my big focus and I've narroed it to Agendus and Pocket Informant. Am currently trialling Agendus. Neither has a fully Stormed version, but both have lots of fans.

Do searches on both and you'll find lots of info.

I think I'm going to download the trial of PocketLists to see how that works. I'm using a Storm as you can tell so I wonder whether that will work for me or not ...

InjunJim, does PocketDay Lists integrate to or use the native BB tasks, which sync to Outlook Tasks? Or is is a stand-alone app?

The info I've found says it's stand-alone and doesn't sync to any desktop app. It looks like a neat app, but I need that Outlook integration.

I am getting ready to do a trial of Agendus. My big concern is the ability to integrate with the existing tasks, calendar, and contacts. Since I sync my device remotely to MobiCal (using SyncJE from Nexthaus) this integration is REALLY critical for me.

Regarding Agendus, is the license transferable? The rate with which I acquire new Blackberries seems to necessitate the investment into a transferable license.

Check out reQall....it's a free app, that works with voice....or typing entry. Has to-do list...shopping list...etc. Really smooth app. I've been using it for about 2 weeks now, and highly recommend.

reQall for BlackBerry

Checkout ToDoMatrix -- lots of different options -- probably one of the more functional tasks lists I've been allowing folders and subfolders, reminders, integrates with the message list allowing you to inject emails as tasks or calendar items, etc

point the berry at REXwireless.com/download

I think BBTask Pro is the best if you like to categorize/sort/manage a complex to-do list.

How is it functioning with 4.5?

I've looked at a lot of Task Management/PIM apps for BB and for me BBTask Pro didn't cut it as I need to sort by Category within Due Date. Other than that, nice app. Having said that, I just tried the Pocket Informant beta, which seems to be very close to general release. Very powerful, very flexible, very nice user interface for the Storm. This is the one for me.

PS - I didn't try PocketLists as it doesn't integrate to Outlook.

I have used BBTask Pro with an 8800 with 4.5 and my current bold without issues. Rooster, I have my to-do list sorted by date and then subcategory as my default view. This feature is what I like the most about the program. You can create whatever custom sorts you want and it does a great job of displaying them.

Thielsa, you're right! I'd confused BB Task Pro with eMobile Task Pro, which doesn't do that.

From the BB Task Pro web site :

"Sort your tasks up to three ways using due date, priority, status, subject, and category (First sort by, then by, then by, ascending or descending) with optional dividers."

Do you know if it has been adapted to the Storm? (am running a 9530 with .75). I couldn't find anything on their web site, and am having trouble contacting Support.

I will definitely check this out.

Thx - R.

IMHO, REXwireless ToDoMatrix (REXwireless: BlackBerry Software Applications) is absolutely the best I have ever used and I have used many on BB, Palm, and Winmobile, but it takes a good week or two to really "get it". I use mostly GTD and some FranklinCovey as my org method. Plus they have seriously good customer service. Best money I ever spent on Blackberry software.

Have heard lots of good things - ToDoMatrix definitely has fans. But I was uncomfortable with my data being stored on remote servers.

I hope this is not considered a threadjack...but I really appreciate good informative threads with good information and this thread has definitely been on of those! Thanks for asking the question Injun!

Previously mentioned reQall rocks. The person that mentioned it previously said that it is a free app, which is true right now, but they have said that they would begin charging a fee once it leaves beta.

That aside, it is a great application.
