Juggling Too Many To-Dos? Try These Helpful Task Management Apps.

  • ---Shares

“I’m multitasking” is typically a nice way of saying “I’m killing myself trying to get a million things done at the same time.” It’s also often code for “I’m overwhelmed and I need help handling it all.”

That’s where task management apps come to the rescue -- or at least aim to. They won’t complete your tasks for you, but they can help you get them under control. How? By neatly packaging everything you need to accomplish all in one organized place. From there, you can assess, track and tackle tasks, one by one.

In this video, Young Entrepreneur Council Founder Scott Gerber discusses his two favorite task management apps for wrangling competing projects and priorities.

For simpler one-off to-dos, Gerber leans on TeuxDeux, a bare-bones to-do app (with the funny Franglais tagline “What deux yeux have teux deux today?”). TeuxDeux was designed to be “as easy to use as a piece of paper,” allowing users to type tasks in wherever they want them, move them around to suit their schedule and check them off as completed in a single click. The app requires a paid TeuxDeux account after a 30-day free trial ($3 per month for the Skeptic plan and $24 per year for the Believer plan).

Gerber relies on Basecamp, a popular web-based project management app, for more complicated tasks involving multiple people. The key features include: to-do lists, messaging between project members, file sharing, and time and milestone tracking. Basecamp fees range between $20 and $150 per month (all with unlimited users), depending on how many gigabytes of space you require.
