This is DoNext, an app that I’m designing: App Store link
It’s a hybrid, messaging/to-do app that will make your life better. I’d appreciate a download, like some feedback, but more than anything else, I’d love to know how you work.
How do you capture and go about executing a list of things to-do, every day?
Do you plan work days/weeks in advance, or is it decided every day?
How do you use Calendars? Do you schedule meetings, block off time to work?
What strategies do you use to delegate and/or collaborate with others?
What tools do you use (Apps/Books/Funky work desks/PAs) to get stuff done?
Technically, DoNext is an aggregator of information across sources: Calendars, Reminders, To-dos. But more importantly, it’s an articulation of intent. On dogfooding my own app, I’ve found a greater sense of purpose and inspiration when the things that I need to do today, are on the same list with books to read/study, and longer term life goals. It changes from a “I’ll get to this someday” to “This is next”, which has lead to a great, satisfying boost in productivity.
We’re also designing it to work well with teams: The end goal is to not just help, but inspire to plan and do great things with others.
We’re a small, agile team that’s working on features, smoother & obvious flows and a better user experience tirelessly. Your feedback helps!
Like any good investigative UX research, your feedback will drive patterns that will improve the design of the product (which moves very fast). I’m always happy to chat directly via email, personal Twitter or DoNext’s new Twitter account.
Thank you for the time!
