Managing time and tasks is something everyone struggles with. There are tons of productivity apps that help us manage our time and tasks better, but its impossible to know which one works best for you. If you aren’t satisfied with the apps at your disposal, it’s time to try ZenDay | To-do + Calendar. ZenDay isn’t just a to-do-app. It also lets you sync Google calendar events and manage all your tasks and schedules efficiently in one place. That apart, its unique 3D slider interface makes it a very attractive application to work with. Here’s a look at some of the cool features of the time management app that will boost your productivity, ZenDay.
Having a ZenDay
The first thing that strikes you when you launch ZenDay is its scrollable timeline interface. The calendar timeline depicts the date on the left hand and the hourly timeslots on the right making it super easy to see your schedules ahead of time simply by scrolling up or down. To create events or tasks, just click on the timeline or the big circular + button and start recording the details at the top of the screen. All events are indicated by a certain color. As the task reaches the deadline, the color of the task changes dynamically indicating the urgency of the task. If the task is complete, you can click on it and mark it as done, or you can edit it, or delete it as you see fit.
At the bottom of the screen are a few functional buttons to help see how well you are faring in time and task management. A ladder-like icon lets you quickly navigate to a particular date such as a week from now, a week back or jump monthly up or down. The tiny menu icon indicates your task priorities, set calendars to sync, work hours, choose your skin and sync Google tasks.
Zen Day also syncs all your calendars( via a paid plugin) in one place enabling you to manage your events from one single place. Simple drag and drop options let you move tasks around to prioritize them according to your days requirements. The Google Tasks synchronization for ZenDay plug-in is available for $2.99 IAP.
One of the truly meaningful features of Zen Day is its ability to tell you how you’ve fared week on week in your time and task management. The Debrief page provides a visually appealing list of tasks you completed on time and those that you didn’t giving you the right feedback and encouragement to improve on your efficiency the next time around.
While the 3D scrollable interface does take a bit of time getting used to, once you get the hang creating tasks, you’ll find managing your various activities easier. A big plus to using ZenDay is you can have both your calendar events and to do tasks organized in a timely fashion so you know exactly how your day is planned out.
Starting your day in a well organized manner will not only ensure a smooth day ahead but also help you become more productive, efficient, and might eventually even get you that bonus!
ZenDay is a highly useful app that should be your best companion and assistant in your workplace. The app is available for free in the Play Store, so go ahead and give it a try and tell us what you think of this time management app.
