Orderly - App Review



Oh no, not another to-do list App. This one could well be worth a second look as it promises "Orderly is designed based on how the human-mind visualises to-do lists! Shown in three levels at a glance, you can quickly decide which ones to work on and what's coming soon. Set note colours, fonts and font sizes to visually aid you in classifying the to-dos.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
On the home screen you will find 'Info' from where you can get 'How to'. This will lead you through some screen grabbed pages which show some of the features of the App and how to use them.

For those of you (that makes most of us) who would rather just get stuck in, click the '+' at the top left of the screen and create a new folder, assigning it a colour, or better still an icon. You will now automatically be able to create an item by tapping the '+' at the top right of the screen (do not worry that your folder has not appeared). You enter a title for this to-do (and that might be all you do), and then add any items in a list. You also can select due dates and priorities (High, Medium, Low).

The App includes a powerful search facility which can bring up all items that are relevant.

Your To-dos are neatly shown as lists and can be changed for priority and order on the screen by dragging; very intuitive.

Cost
The App Costs a nominal $1.

Indispensability
Regular readers will know that a to-do list is an absolute 'must-have', and more importantly, 'must use' App. Orderly could just be a very good solution for those who want something more intuitive than a straight list.

Dependability
The only irritating item found was that when entering items in a list tapping 'Next' makes the on-screen keyboard disappear.

Security
You can synchronise your files with Dropbox. The files are saved in Dropbox/Apps/Orderly as JSON; for those of you who would like to edit the items on a PC, enjoy.

ACIDS Test Rating:

Mixed App and to-do with finger control.
