There are roughly 1,000,000 fairly inexpensive or free apps on the iPhone/iPad/Mac online stores.

Ever try to find the best task manager or calendar enhancer or text editor or mind mapping or … app?

It’s great to have choice. It’s not so great to get buried in it.

IMHO, most of the “10 best” guides are not all that helpful. And, since all of those 1,000,000+ apps are being updated all of the time to emulate (“steal”) each other’s best points, a relative ranking within app category is fairly meaningless if the review is more than 6 weeks (days/hours/seconds) old.


When I was in grad school, the choices were about the same as those currently in PenUltimate (size of paper, paper color, pen or pencil or marker, color coding, erasable or not).

Ugh. This is much worse than going into a Big Box office supplies store and trying to pick the perfect writing implement that makes it easy to write, makes you learn more and appear smarter, and does not smudge all over your hands and onto your clothing. (It also helps to find a writing implement that does not “bleed” when you leave it your pocket and then wash your clothes!).

Does anyone know which text processor, task manager, calendar enhancer, etc., app survives best when it goes through the washing machine?
