Ever wish you had the superpowers your mom seemed to have? The ones that let her never forget an appointment or a birthday? The ones that helped her bring home your favorite treat from the grocery store and remember the exact book your sister wanted for her birthday? There’s an app for that.
A new organizational app for the iPhone called Intuition promises to help you manage the tasks of motherhood.
There are, of course, dozens of apps to help you keep track of appointments and manage your to-do lists. Why bother with one more? In addition to being adorably flower-themed, this one is just good.
OK, actually, if you know me at all, you know the flower thing annoyed me. The app lets you view your tasks by category or by calendar, add new tasks, use the iPhone’s built-in GPS to highlight tasks that are nearby and connect with other Intuition users for tips on how to do your to-do items better.
This is great functionality for an app, but did those options have to be arrayed on the pastel petals of a cartoon flower? I feel like a girl touching this thing, and not in a good way.
Getting past my own aesthetic hang-ups though, the app is great. It does the basics of several apps I’m using now, all in one place. I can easily update tasks in a set of useful categories. I can maintain a grocery list right here in this app. I can check my calendar for appointments. I can share party plans via Facebook or e-mail my “errands” list to my husband. All without leaving the app.
Sweet. I love having so many of the basic household management functions in one place. It also turns out that even a productivity junky like me can use one more organizational app. My other to-do app has been taken over by work. This is one I can switch to when I’m just wearing my Mom hat.
