Adding detail and context is so important to developing your task list. When your completing those tasks you need those Tags + Repeat info + Notes to tell you that it’s a task that needs to be done @ Gym, Repeated 3x a week and needs a unique code to complete.

Using all of these context tools are vital in a task management application. Use them! Swipes, when clicking into a task, allows you to add more context for the on-the-go needs, or the sit-down and focus work. Need to know that this task demands you to be @ Home to complete or a @ Computer tag is needed to complete this task. Using the feature of opening up a task is needed — Use it and add more detail now!

5. EVERNOTE INTEGRATION!

Looking into Swipes + Evernote mix is AMAZING!

These two apps work so well together!

Simply head over to a SETTINGS, INTEGRATIONS, Connect your Evernote Account to Swipes.

Go to a task, hit the lovely Evernote Logo at the top of the Task page. You will see an Evernote Importer.

From here you should be able to choose the “Note” that has the actions relevant to the task.

All ACTIONS will get brought in as Sub-tasks, this ability will have you wanting more and more tasks to be connected to Evernote notes. It adds so much more context that a lot of apps can’t engage without damaging the user experience.
