Moleskine's Productivity App Makes Organizing Easy and Fun

Apps IOS Productivity Moleskine

For most of my life, I managed to stay relatively organized with nothing but my own memory, but I recently started using Apple’s Reminders app to keep track of major work assignments and personal chores. It gets the job done, but it’s not very exciting to use. I didn’t even realize that fun was an option until I tested out Moleskin e’s excellent iOS productivity app, Actions.

Inspired by a recent article Fast Company article, I downloaded Actions and gave it a whirl. The first thing I noticed was the design. It’s beautiful, clean, and simple—the kind of minimalist software Apple should be making, but can’t quite figure out these days.

Actions is also extremely easy to use. The app opens right onto your schedule. Hit the big plus button in the top-right corner to add a new task, give it a name, and add it to a list (Actions’ name for different categories of tasks) if you want. That’s it. There’s no pressure to set a due date or add extra info. All the app needs to start is a quick description of your task.

Once you’ve added a few tasks, you can head back to the main screen and start scheduling. Just press down on a task and drag it to the date it’s due, whether that’s today, tomorrow, Friday, or “later.” You can also drag any task into the bottom-right corner to put it in one of your color-coded lists.

Finally, to add more lists, just tap on that bottom-right button. From there, you can create new categories and choose a color for each of them.

That’s pretty much it. You make a lot of tasks, set a bunch of due dates, and then get back to your life. The entire thing is simple, intuitive, and kind of fun to do. As an added bonus, it also syncs with Moleskine’s calendar app and works with Siri voice controls.

While there’s no official Android version of Actions yet, you can sign up to beta test Actions on Android right here.
