There is an abundance of to-do apps available to consumers today on the App Store, but IQTELL aims to shake things up by offering an incredibly powerful feature set (similar to that of OmniFocus) at the incredibly enticing price point of free.
It’s evident from the get-go that IQTELL isn’t like most other free to-do apps out there. The vast plethora of options offered on the home screen alone suggest that this app should be able to handle the most demanding users needs, and it does so with grace.
IQTELL is an incredibly powerful to-do app, offering features such as contexts, actions and projects. These features are very well implemented and also ensure that the app can be used for whatever the user wants. For example, I was able to use this app to track both my school-related tasks along with my writing responsibilities with ease.
Of course, having a vast feature set is a double-edged sword. It took me a good ten minutes to get the hang of IQTELL’s basic features. The crowded home screen and the lack of a help menu also contributed greatly to a steep and often frustrating learning curve that many users will experience when they start using this app. The app’s performance is also quite sporadic, requiring two force-closes in my testing.
The defining feature that sets IQTELL apart from most other to-do apps, though, is an already established web app. This means that tasks are synced to and from the user’s computer and device, allowing seamless management of tasks regardless of what device they are using.
Overall IQTELL’s is definitely a strong contender in the fierce to-do app market, but its vast feature set, web app connection, and attractive free price put it slightly in front of a lot of other apps.
