    "I am always looking out for new ways to help me stay organized and plan my days so that I can be more efficient in everything that I do. While the list and organizer apps are nice I got a bit bored with them and found them to be bland and not very motivating to use. Habitica changes all that by giving you your own virtual character that levels up each time you complete things on your list and day planner. Not only that but you can collect currency by completing tasks which you can then use to edit and upgrade your character within the app. This makes completing my list fun and drives me to do each and everything on my daily planner."

    "At first glance, this looks like a simple app that will list your appointments and errands in chronological order. However, in the demonstration exhibiting its capabilities, this thing turns out to be more powerful and complicated than anticipated...or wanted. This app might be more suited for a business man or an active jet setter, whose secretary has to enter all the details of things that need to be known. I would not recommend this for every day use. It looks like it could drive you crazy and possibly worsen your depression."

    "GTasks calls itself "simple and efficient" but I found it to be anything but. The setup is confusing. I couldn't figure out how this app coordinates with Google, either. You'll be better off just using the Google app."

    "I don't like the basic calendar app on my android phone, so I decided to check the google play store for some planning alternatives. I decided to try Any.do from there, and so far it is working great. It does have ads, but they aren't intrusive or overwhelming and it is easy to gather all of my appointments and to do lists into one location now."
