To-Do First

To-Do First [Productivity] App Description & Overview

To-Do First is an algorithmic ranking To-Do list that ranks your tasks based on Importance, Urgency, Profitability, Pleasure using various user selectable algorithms.

Choose from 12 unique rank algorithms to prioritize the To-Do's that you feel like doing right now.

For example, if you feel like an easy day you can set the rank algorithm to “Pleasure Prioritised”, which gives higher rank to To-Do's that are pleasurable.

To-Do's can be sorted to display work tasks, personal tasks, or work and personal tasks combined. Tasks within these lists can be ordered by either priority rank or due date.

To-Do First also features a unique "Auto Urgency Mode" that automatically increases the urgency of a To-Do each day as it approaches the due date.

“Auto Urgency Mode” features three “Auto Urgency Models” to determine the rate a To-Do’s urgency value increases between the start and due date. The three “Auto Urgency Models” are fast rise, average rise and late rise. Alternately, you can choose to set the urgency of a task manually.

Now an algorithmic ranking To-Do list can prioritize what you should do first!

Features summary:
► Rank Algorithm automatically generates a ranking out of 100 for each task.
► 12 unique Rank Algorithms let you choose what to focus on.
► Sort by Work or Personal, Rank or Due Date.
► Automatically set Urgency with ‘Auto Urgency Mode’.

► To-Do First Review by Alexandre R. Labrie, CEO of The International:

I constantly think about what I have to accomplish first. Finish that report? Contact that external vendor? Work on that business strategy in progress? Prioritizing is central to any executive's work and To-Do First makes that a lot easier. It has taken away the time I used to spend wondering what I should do and it has freed my schedule from tasks I have now realized were not as crucial to our goals.

I usually have my setting on 'importance', but in late evenings, I set it to 'pleasure'. This allows me to work on side projects that I find more stimulating but that nonetheless contribute to our progress. Put simply, this app takes the pain away from prioritizing your work and helps you to work smarter. It is a business tool that increases your efficiency.

To-Do First Comments & Reviews

TransferWise 💸

Enjoy high maximum transfers into more than 20 currencies while saving up to 90% over local banks! The cheap, fast way to send money abroad. Free transfer up to 500 USD!

- Almost Useful

The due date is almost irrelevant. When I moved it two years in the future it didn’t change. It changed very slightly when I set it two years in the past. I need to see numbers when I move the controls. If I want it to be 50 instead of 48 it’s inadequate.

- lot

Nice app, but I think there is a lot of work that has to be done! The look and feel isn't very apple like! Especially the edit screen... Why not put all in table cells like apple does it in the calendar app, for example?! Also, adding a new todo and than hit the back button adds an empty todo, which is kind of useless! What I really like, ist the auto urgency mode! This seems to be a very great concept!

- For People With HUGE To-Do Lists

This app will not be helpful for people with small to-do lists, but for people like me who find it not unusual to have over 200+ items, the ability to prioritize and rank the list is a true god-send as it helps to avoid the paralysis that comes with an overwhelming number of tasks. This is also the best companion I have found for David Allen's GTD program for personal organization especially if you are disciplined in making sure that you enter ALL of your tasks and goals and to-do's in the application. Though the app is perfect for what I need to do, if I may dream, it would be nice to have the ability to create other categories other than Personal and Work as I wear many other hats, and to integrate the app with a calendar would make it the ultimate time/life management tool. Nonetheless, for this particular reviewer, To-Do First is the only app I will ever need for my iPod Touch.

- ok at the moment

Agree with the others regarding the need to be more user friendly. Looking forward to the update. It is a good app that could be great.

- Now it's great!

This app is one of the few to-do list apps based on an original concept. It was working really well for me previously, and now with the recent update so you can change the rank algorithm its great.

- Simple, useful

This is a good to-do app. It ranks your tasks sensibly, and it has a readable interface. I've used lots of to-do apps, and this is the one I'm using now, mostly because it doesn't get me bogged down in trying to fit my daily work into a complicated app.

- Managers, coaches, and leaders MUST HAVE!!!

This is exactly what I was looking for. I read all other reviews and notices that many think this is a confusing app. IT IS NOT!! This is very easy to use. Could not be simpler. This is not an app for the list maker. It is the app for the very busy person that NEEDS to prioritize their day(s). I am going to make this app a required purchase for all my managers. Buy it!!!

- Really original concept

The auto urgency speeding up the rank as the deadline gets nearer is a really original concept.

- Great to do list

Great to do list app and I have bought a lot of them. Simple but powerful.

- Highly recommended

Highly reccommend the priority/ranking. Im using it for my contract artistic work and a variety of chores with success.

- Missing feature

There needs to be a way to manually set the rank number of a task.

- good

Good app, clear and simple, but can only seperate the todo tasks into work/personaly seems not enough, maybe more choices is better...

- Freezes / crashes

Terrible app. I should have listened to the negative reviews posted but I was tempted by the positive reviews. It's hangs and crashes frequently and doesn't work as advertised. Look elsewhere and save your money.

- Interesting idea

Interesting idea: automatic sorting for tasks... Aplication works fine. Clear and simple interface.

- No Longer Supported!!!

By far the best to do priority list I've ever used. And it's no longer working and the last update was 7 years ago. Haven't found anything better since.

- Okay App

Okay app, not great. Needs to be more user friendly where users can manually ranked their task, edit/move list, and color code priorities. Good concept, but poor execution. It will probably get better with updates in the future. Update: Please include a manual ranking system for priorities into the option in the next update! I will give you 5 stars then.

- Solid app

Great concept. Entered in all my tasks and so far im liking the way it sorts.

- Crashes. Doesn't Work! Waste of money

I just paid $3 of my hard earned money for this only to have it continuously freeze up and crash out. Want a refund!! Bad product!!!!

- Super Work

I like the sorting. Works well.

- Must have

Easy to use. Works great.

- Bad user interface

The interface is not good for iPhone 5S. The interface is smaller that compatible for iPhone 4 ?

- very good

Very nice application, easy to use, very good, designer ok

- Great early version. With improvements could rock my world...

I've searched for a lot of task and project management apps that will help me prioritize the zillion things I need to do for work and in my personal life and this is the closest software I've found to what I really, really need. It may not be for everyone. But if you are one of those people who has so many balls up in the air at any given time you feel overwhelmed and get paralyzed from not knowing what to do first, where to start; if EVERYTHING has to get done, and you have trouble deciding where you should be putting your resources, this app is great for that. You set your rankings with the easy to use slider (so simple, I don't understand the reviews that it is hard to use) and then tell it what is most important to you in the moment, and it tells you what to do first. Simple. Brilliant. You can reset your rankings if you don't feel that a task is where it should be on your to-do list order or a new development comes up that changes the game. It is very helpful for reprioritizing on the fly. There are a lot of things I wish this app could do that would make it the best dang to-do list software in the biz, so I hope that the developers continue to improve and grow this simple app. Please, please, please!!! One thing I wish was different on a daily basis though is that there is no way to archive or hide completed tasks. The only way to get them off your list is to delete them. But there is no way to export what you've accomplished so you can see how much you have done. Big bummer. So the longer you use it (if you don't want to lose all your accomplished tasks), the longer you have to scroll through all your grayed out tasks to find your current to-do list. Again, there a lot of things that can be improved here. It's not a totally finished product in my opinion. But the bottom line is, I haven't found anything else out there like it with this algorithm ranking, so I am still using it every single day. It has dramatically increased my productivity both at work and at home. Would recommend to anyone who has to juggle many different projects/tasks while making sure you are spending your time on the most valuable things.

- Doesn't work

I just bought this app (12th Nov 2015) and it doesn't seem to work. The slide bar for urgency, importance etc aren't there. The info button doesn't work and the whole thing just freezes. Don't waste your money. I'm so disappointed.

- This is a great app

I wanted to say thank you, for such an awesome app. The reason why I have given it only 4 star was because I am comparing this to The CARVER matrix. If you could add the recognizability attribute, that would be great. A goal which I know the steps to (have experience in the past) will be higher ranked than a goal which I am a bit fizzy in the details... Otherwise awesome app

- Great app

Easy to use, great at prioritizing without the stress of trying to decide. Would like an export/print type function but well worth the money.

- Good app

Great concept and good app. To get 5 stars it would need the end time added to the end date to help prioritize the tasks. It is still the best to do app I've seen so far.

- Integrate with calendar

The algorithms are what I was looking for, it's a good ranking tool. For me it needs to integrate with my calendar or I won't use it which is a shame KD Perth

- Fantastic app

Original concept and well executed. Fantastic prioritising of tasks.

US is the global COVID leader but is deliberating to ban flights from the UK. Our cousin, Canada, who has far less infections and deaths compared to the US has banned flights. In situations like this they ain’t permanent friends, you do what is right for your people first.

@carolecadwalla Bad analogy in our families’ case. I’m the boss of Christmas, with my wife’s approval and it is always first class. All that list and more is on my to do list.
