I'm trying to get an overview of all the different personal task management tools out there. Therefore I'm grateful for any suggestion regarding this matter even if the criteria aren't matched. There are two features however which I'm looking for in particular:

  1. The focus of the tool should be the management of my personal daily tasks. I'm not looking for an agile project management tool.
  2. Less important but still a focus would be the access of Jira (or other agile project management tools like redmine, taiga.io or the like) tasks to put them into a more personal task list.

I'm still happy for suggestions which don't provide (1) or (2) as I'm mostly looking on getting an overview of what people like to use personally for their individual daily task management.

Ideally it should run on as many platforms as possible, web and/or offline would also be nice but that's also by no means a requirement.

To give you a rough idea what I'm looking for: Simple Tasklists comes pretty close, but it has to be installed with Jira itself, so I can't really use it for something else.

    Welcome to Software Recommendations! We will need much more information to give good recommendations here. Please take a look at What is required for a question to contain "enough information"? Then please edit your question and see if you can incorporate some of these improvements. Especially missing: What OS should it run on (or should it be a web-app)? What's your price margin (or should it be free as in "free beer")? What other specific features (apart from "working with Jira") do you need?

  • Do you need to edit tasks offline?

  • "or other agile project management tool": Do you mean that if the tool supports GNATS then it does not need to support JIRA?

  • Elsewhere I saw the kanban concept recommended. You make columns, such as To Do, In Process, Complete; and then you drag little things like post-its around. Would something like that work? Commented May 6, 2017 at 3:38

The best task management app I know of is Quire. The free version is very functional. Wonderful interface on both web and Android.

  • Hello, are you associated with that? SInce you recommended it few times in quick succession. You need to provide that information then.

  • No. No affiliation. I asked my first question here and so wanted to contribute something back to the site. Quire is one app I use a lot and can highly recommend. So I went looking for some task management questions I could contribute to.
