    "This terrific management system actually helped me get a handle on my to do list. It has a nice intuitive structure that helps me organize tasks, track what I have accomplished and sweet up tasks that recur but not too often like dentist appointments. It is a great solution to keeping things from slipping my mind and the organization and geolocation support makes this better than competing apps. Unfortunately it is iOS only."

Unfortunately, I have buyers remorse. Files isn't anything special (at least in my opinion). I wish I had used my gift card for something fun instead."
