Task List Professional

Jujuba Software, the creators of the hit Kindle app Calendar Pro, also released Task List Professional earlier this year.  Task List Professional joins a growing selection of time management apps for the Kindle, but this one takes it to a new level with its aim at professional Kindle users.

The thing that impresses me the most about Task List Professional is how clean the text and graphics are.  As you move through the app with the Kindle”s 5-way controller, you can see where you are by watching the cursor.  The only thing that isn’t totally straightforward is how to start writing tasks.

In order to create tasks, you need to navigate to the text box.  The whole box will be selected.  Once the box is selected, hit the toggle button, and the text cursor will show up.  After figuring this out, it is pretty easy to do.  It just took me a little longer to do so than navigating the rest of the tool.

When you first start Task List Professional, it provides a tutorial.  Despite the simplicity of the app, I still encourage new users to run through the tutorial to get a feel for how everything works.  The tutorial can be accessed anytime after you complete it if you still need a refresher.  In addition to the tutorial, there is a “help” button at the bottom of the screen that provides a quick summary of how to use the app.

The aspect of Task List Professional that makes it a better fit for professionals is the ability to assign priorities to each task.  This cuts out having to search through each one to find the ones that need to be checked off quickly.  Also, for tasks that require long descriptions, you can write them on the computer and download them to your Kindle.

If you are looking for a Kindle app that you want to use just for quick lists and notes, Notepad might be a better bet.  But, for the same price, Task List Professional provides more tools that are ideal for complex tasks.

Right now, Task List Professional is available on generations up to the Kindle Keyboard.  I will continue to keep an eye out for future updates that might make this app compatible with the Kindle and Kindle Touch.

“With features like alphabetical listing, priority listing and 2 click checkmarks this program also make an excellent budget tracker.
Page listing and paid checkmarks with dates due are also good budget features.

Calendar Pro for Kindle

calendar proThe Kindle has become a powerful multipurpose tool in the last few months.  The latest addition to the Kindle app platform is Calendar Pro, made by our very own Kindle developers.  It is only 99 cents, and allows portability that you can’t get with Microsoft Outlook.  The Calendar Pro app is available to anyone who has the 2nd generation Kindle and up.

The Calendar app fits naturally with the Kindle platform because of it is simple and linear, and can be navigated quite easily with the Kindle keyboard and toggle button.  It is also something we can all use to make our lives a little less stressful.

With the Calendar Pro Kindle app, you can create, edit and view events by day, month or year. It is similar to Google Calendar in that you can schedule events that overlap, last for a whole day, or many days.  Each event also includes title, location, time and description fields.

Agenda view is where you can view the events you have created anytime.  The Kindle’s page turn buttons make it easy to switch the time period you are viewing.

Calendar Pro is very intuitive and user friendly.  If you have any trouble with how to navigate the app with keyboard shortcuts or controls, you can use the “Help” section.  It is easy to find, and it available on every screen.

Calendar Pro is off to a great start, but considering that it is brand new, we welcome your suggestions on any improvements that might make your experience better.
