Like so many things, Taskliner evolved from the need to find a better way to track and manage the things that I want to do in life. Whether those things be for work, or for play, I needed a system that worked for me.
I was previously using Do (http://do.com), and I liked the features that it offered, but unfortunately Salesforce shut it down earlier this year. After reviewing other comparable options on the market, I decided to create my own.
In order to make this idealistic system a reality, the following were required to make the dream come true:
- Available Everywhere - It needs to be as quick and easy to enter in tasks on the go, as it is when you’re at your desk. That’s why the first version of Taskliner was developed as a responsive web app, that takes full advantage of localStorage and offline data entry and syncing.
- Super Fast - And by fast, that means both in terms of development and user experience.
- Flexible - I wanted a system that allows you to work with others, includes the option to track time for tasks, and can connect with other services (ex. Dropbox, Google Drive, and GitHub) in order to easily reference things associated with the task at hand.
I don’t foresee Taskliner being some sort of break-out success, considering how many other to-do apps are out there. But, I can say that I am going to be making Taskliner the best app for myself, and maybe it will work well for others who work like me. With that said, I hope you’ll give it a try, and if you like, that’s great. And, if there’s something else that you’d like added to it, just let me know and I’ll see what I can do.
