About this app

microtasks is a plain simple to-do / notes / task manager that uses entirely the notification area. Use it to add small things that you must do or remember during the day, habit building, sudden inspiration notes or anything else. Silent notifications, with no sound or vibration, are used to minimize disruption.

Tasks come "locked" by default for not accidentally swiping them away. When you are done with a task, select "dismiss" to delete it.

Add new tasks from the notification themselves using the "new" notification action. Select "more" to "rename" an existing task, "highlight" important tasks to make them more visible, or "schedule" them in the future. To create a new task when there is no active task, just use the microtasks app simple interface.

I recently switched from another notes app to this one. I like the quick task features and the collapsible notifications. This app would be perfect if we had the option to give our notes a title and body text. Another thing would be having the option to set the scheduler to a 12 hour clock. Other than that, it's a solid app.

Hello David! Thanks for your review! We didn't go with the title+body because we aim for quick notes. But we have a feedback portal (select 'Send us feedback' in-app, or go to https://microtasks.nolt.io) and put your feature requests there to keep track :)

At first, this app seemed convenient at best. If you had a couple things on your list, it was nice to have it on hand and in the status bar. After using it for months, I don't know what I'd do without it. being able to create a new task from basically anywhere is such a huge feature. It may sound easy to unlock the phone and make a new note or add to one, but in the moment when you might not be able to, this app is there for you.

Really love using this app. The "highlight" feature is it's main highlight, never seen any other app showing notification like that. Good job. Edit 19/07/2020: Please add more colours to the highlight feature. And IMHO, it would be better to use less bright colours. Pastel colours would be awesome.
