What can you use the app for?

The app is a basic to do list and organizer that also helps the user set priorities. It is meant to make sure you get the most important tasks done first. The app is based on a statement of former US President Dwight D Eisenhower, who said “What is important is seldom urgent and what is urgent is seldom important.” The app is much easier to use than many to do lists and organizers. It is as simple as choosing a task and then entering it into one of four boxes, depending on importance and urgency. screenshot

What is the history and popularity of the app?

The app was founded in December of 2011 and launched in 2012 into a crowded marketplace of to do list apps. To do lists and organizers were launched frequently in previous years. As such, the app hadn't time to gather much media presence and its Facebook and Twitter pages had attracted few likes or followers yet.

What are the differences to other apps?

The main feature that differentiates Eisenhower from the hundreds of other to do lists and organizers is that it focuses almost solely on setting priorities. It is based on the philosophy stated by former US President Dwight D. Eisenhower that “What is important is seldom urgent and what is urgent is seldom important.” Eisenhower is also one of the simplest to do list apps to use.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Eisenhower is extremely simple to use. In fact, the app consists mainly of four boxes where you type out your to do list. The boxes include Do First, Schedule, Delegate and Don't Do. You write items into the various boxes based on several criteria. Do First items are "urgent and important." Schedule items are "less urgent, but important." Delegate items are "urgent, but less important," and Don't Do items are "neither urgent nor important."

How does the registration process work?

To register, click the green registration button on the home page. From there, you type in your e-mail address and a password. You will then receive a confirmation e-mail to the inbox of the e-mail address you used to sign up. When you click on the confirmation e-mail, you will be taken directly to the to do list organizer, consisting of four boxes to fill in.

What does it cost to use the application?

The application is free to use.

Who would you recommend the application to?

The app could be particularly useful for people who obsess about organizing their to do lists. This is one of the simplest to do lists around. It could help people avoid unneeded tasks and save time on figuring out complicated, lengthy to do lists.
