Workflowy, example of bad productivity app and 7 features that would make it awesome - 3 views

    • Kate Pok
       
      I also agree with most of these needed features.
    • Here is the list of things that every productivity application should have:

      • Integration with iCal / Google Calendar - for those who rely on Google SMS texts as reminders
      • Powerful search – so I don’t have to waste time looking for the things that I need
      • Available on all platforms (Mac, PC, Android, iOS, Black Berry…) – so if I change the device, I don’t need to be left apart
      • Sharing options (Facebook, Twitter, @mail) – so I can share my thoughts with my friends without writing it twice and copy pasting
      • Tagging – so we can organize ourselves better
      • Reminders – so we can setup alarms without finding the native app
      • Offline access – so we don’t have to rely on internet in order for our system to work.

    But I have to admit, I LOVE WORKFLOWY

    While this site lists some of the limitations of Workflowy, I have to admit I LOVE workflowy
