By now, you’re down to those three or four things that need to get done in order to fully relax on Spring Weekend. Although you have a notebook or a Google to-do list where you have everything written down, you’re never 100% positive you’re not forgetting something. Plus, what’s the point of keeping that list in a central location rather than having it with you when you get things done on the go?
That’s where Astrid comes in. Astrid (Apple / Android) is a cute red octopus that keeps track of all the things you have to do in a neat and tidy way. Yes, task managers are usually extremely boring and unsatisfying, but this one enables you to fully customize your experience as well as your tasks with tags, priority levels and reminders. Moreover, Astrid syncs your tasks with your Google Tasks, which means you can check off an item from your phone, and you can see it checked off when you get back home — satisfaction guaranteed.
The hidden feature though is that Astrid really is a great name for a personal assistant. “Let me check with Astrid” may not be the greatest answer in a job interview, but it’s definitely a worthy addition to your vocabulary. Did I mention he/she/phe was cute?
