Simple task/timeboxing apps that let me plan tasks on a calendar
February 4, 2016 10:58 AM   Subscribe

I am looking for an app that ideally works on Mac/iPad/Android that lets me keep a list of tasks and then plan those tasks on a calendar on a specific date and time. Due dates are not good enough, I really want to specify that I will do task X on Tuesday from 10.00-10.30. I then want to see a calendar view with all my planned tasks for the day/week, as if they were appointments.

I could use the OSX calendar app for this and add the tasks as appointments but I would much prefer one app with task management features, where I can mark a task as done, get a log of the things I did, etc. I don't want to use a separate task manager and calendar.

I don't need full project management features. I don't have a team, I don't have milestones. I just want to plan my todo's in a calendar. Ideally the todo part does have good subtask support, I want to be able to plan those subtasks in my calendar. This probably does depend on the structure of the app a bit, so it's not a must have, but I'm using Trello now, and there there's no way to attach due dates to subtasks, you have to convert them to cards first, and I feel like my board gets too cluttered if I make a card for every small todo item.

The app called Glass might work for the scheduling but I'm not sure if it has what you want for sub tasks. Check it out though, it's pretty neat.

Thanks! That does look nice, but it's iPhone only and I don't have an iPhone. I'm surprised there apparently aren't many apps/sites/tools that do this.
