"What is important is seldom urgent, and what is urgent is seldom important." – Dwight 'Ike' Eisenhower
Ike is a playful to-do list in the spirit of President Eisenhower's priority matrix. Organize tasks by importance and urgency. Manage tasks using intuitive gestures. Never forget a thing by adding due dates and location reminders. Go pro to unlock all the themes, widgets, the ability to add multiple reminders to each task, location reminders, images, and audio recordings.
Prioritize tasks, todos, and reminders into a priority matrix depending on their importance/urgency. The Eisenhower method, also called a priority matrix, was popularized in Steven Covey’s “7 Habits of Highly Effective People”. Prioritizing tasks upfront is the cornerstone of Ike; prioritizing a task is the first thing you do, rather than selecting it afterwards.
Add a due date to a task to give it a deadline. Due dates can repeat daily, weekly, monthly, yearly, or be customized to a variety of configurations, such as “every 3 weeks on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday”, or “every 3 months”.
Add multiple time or location-based reminders to each task. Tasks with due dates have time reminders depending on if a due date is at a set time or is an all day event, and reminders can fire once or repeat. Default reminders for due dates can be customized in the app settings. Location-based reminders can be added and customized for arriving at or leaving from a location. View a map or get driving directions while viewing a task that has location-based reminders. The geofence detection radius can be customized as well as the detection time when arriving at a location.
Images and Audio
Add an image to a task to add more information about it, or to jazz it up. Images are seen directly in your task list so you don’t have to dig for it. Add audio recordings to a task using Google’s speech to text. Audio is played directly from the task list, and a speech to text is shown while the audio is playing to make it easier to access. If you want to quickly add a task with a lot of information, audio is the way to go.
Add notes and descriptions to your tasks. We give you an entire screen to add whatever detailed information you want.
