MUST READ: How to get the iPhone 7 or 7 Plus you want on launch day even without a preorder

These are paid iPhone and iPad apps that have been made available for free for a limited time by their developers. There is no way to tell how long they will be free. These sales could end an hour from now or a week from now — obviously, the only thing we can guarantee is that they were free at the time this post was written. If you click on a link and see a price listed next to an app instead of the word “get,” it is no longer free. The sale has ended. If you download the app, you will be charged.

Crimson Box

I was bored with the way all the famous to-do apps look, mostly mundane lists of things to do. Not inspiring. So I started tinkering my own vision of a better and more engaging interface: A world dark and set in the future, where planet Earth is under constant wave of meteors; human civilization has moved backwards and survives on farming and windmills for energy. The to-do items take the form of meteors falling from the sky. The best part is when a task is completed the meteor explodes into a giant ball of fireworks. A serious “bad ass” way to say task complete. On the other hand, if a deadline is missed, the meteor comes crashing with smoke and red flames everywhere.

“World’s most promising start-ups” – Launching Next

Stunning visualization
The tasks from your to-do list take on the shape of falling alien objects from space, racing towards planet earth destined to impact with catastrophic results on the eve of their deadline.

Only you have the power to defend your planet against this catastrophe. Complete the task before the time runs out.

Performance analytics
Leverage the built-in analytics to plan and improve your game. See where most of your time is spent, which kind of tasks you are really good at and which needs more work.

Divide and conquer
Organize and filter tasks using tags. You know your life the best. Create the filter that works for you.

Add Notes
Create notes in your own way.

Organize your task the way you like it.
Changing deadlines is as easy as moving task across the screen with a wipe. No complicated forms to mess with.

This is the tool for everyone with just 24 hours but lot on their minds.
