Like many high school students, Ryan Orbuch and Michael Hansen had a problem, managing everything from mid-terms, to a simple homework deadline. But unlike your average high school student, these two did something about it, they created task management app “Finish,” (available for the iPhone, but not yet Android).
Orbuch and Hansen found it increasingly difficult to keep up with their schoolwork when 10th grade finals hit, so they came up with the idea of an app that offered easy input while automatically prioritizing new tasks with old tasks, based on the dates that they were due. Thus, Finish was born.
WIth the Finish app, you can set your time frame preferences into short-term, mid-term, and long-term goals. After you’ve done that, whenever you add a new task and give it a due date, the app will categorize the tasks depending on your defined presets. Once a task is completed, the next task in that short-, mid- or long-term goal category will automatically move into the next spot.
And no worries if you don’t visit the app each day, it will send you push notification reminders as tasks are nearing their due date. What many will find appealing is the sheer simplicity of the app. There are numerous time management apps on the market, but many come with a daunting list of features, or integrate into a style of time management that corresponds with a book, or website membership. This is simple and straight-forward, which often works best for those with chronic procrastination. And for only 99 cents, it is a steal. Check it out for yourself, or for your own student who needs some organisational help.
