Product Announcements – Elemental Tools of Eggersdorf/Graz, Austria has released Firetask Pro, the next generation of Firetask, the leading project-oriented GTD(R) task management app for Mac, iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch. The new app provides tons of new features based on end user feedback including project portfolios, actions for subdividing tasks, iCloud syncing, a new iOS Today widget, and Apple Watch support. Firetask Pro is available immediately from the iTunes and Mac App Store.
“With Firetask Pro we are raising the bar for project-oriented task management apps,” said Gerald Aquila, CEO of Elemental Tools. “By keeping what our users love and optimizing the Firetask workflows based on years of end user feedback we strongly believe that we have created an exceptional GTD task management experience.”
Enhanced Focus Through Optimized Workflows:
The new app provides significant improvements to the collect and focus workflows. “Today” now focuses really on tasks that are marked as starred, or are due today (or already overdue). Upcoming due tasks in the next days as well as next tasks per project are summarized in a new “Next” view. In addition, “Waiting For” has been moved into the “Focus” area and provides a much improved view of your delegated tasks grouped by assignee.
The new “Collect” area groups “Inbox”, “Someday”, and “Scratchpad” together and now supports free reordering of tasks providing you with a more natural way of collecting and organizing thoughts and ideas.
More Order via Portfolios and Actions:
Portfolios allow users to group projects together in order to provide more order for your active projects. Actions provide a simple, but powerful way to subdivide your tasks into individual steps that have to be done before a task can be completed.
Consistent Experience Across Platforms:
Firetask Pro brings much more functionality from the Mac to iOS as well as from the iPad to the iPhone. For instance, all previously Mac-only overviews such as “Priorities” and “Starred” are now also available on iOS. In addition, the new universal iOS app brings “Kanban” and “Dates” views to the iPhone for the very first time enabling you to perform more effective GTD reviews also on the go.
Additional Improvements and Availability:
Additional improvements include a new, improved Today widget on iOS, a very focused Apple Watch app providing quick access to Inbox, Today, Next, and Waiting For lists, Contacts, Calendar and Reminders integrations, and easy to set up syncing via iCloud.
Firetask Pro for iOS and macOS are available from the iTunes and Mac App Store respectively and require iOS 10 and macOS Sierra 10.12. For more information or a free 15 day trial of the Mac version please visit the Firetask website.
