Ease of use

Is it in­stantly us­able or is tu­ition needed?

Mac Format - - RATED | MAC APPS -

Be­fore we set off it’s worth point­ing out that none of the apps here are par­tic­u­larly hard to use ini­tially – you can cer­tainly dive in and get go­ing in min­utes. How­ever, you might find you need to fol­low a tu­to­rial to mas­ter some of the more ad­vanced fea­tures of the app.

Wun­derlist is ex­tremely sim­ple to get to grips with – you can cre­ate task lists, put things in them and share them with oth­ers. Clear is also de­signed to be sim­ple, just type any­where to cre­ate items, drag to move them and then hit space or right-click to com­plete them and a clever touch is the abil­ity to pinch on your Mac’s track­pad to close the cur­rent list. Things is more com­plex than a sim­ple task list and col­lects tasks based on projects, so it’s not the eas­i­est for the novice. 2Do is sim­i­lar, with Om­niFo­cus be­ing the most com­pli­cated. But th­ese lat­ter apps are more com­pli­cated for good rea­son. Fea­tures such as tag­ging and the abil­ity to save a bunch of tasks to a project aren’t for begin­ners, but they re­ally set them apart from the other op­tions here.
