INCOMING! (ALPHA) {HOMEBREW} [TOUCHPAD] – REVIEW (68%)

13 May

Incoming! (Alpha) is a task manager / list maker released by tehtorq.

“Keep one step ahead of life’s little curveballs. Incoming! is an app for webOS which aspires to be a drop in for Any.DO on Android.

For me, this application felt a little like the Clear application for iOS. Which is not a bad thing.

As the name suggests the developer feels this is in the early stages of development, and does not even claim it to be Beta software yet.

Incoming is simplistic to-do list application allowing you to easily manage all your tasks in a single list.

At present the application only supports a single task list.

Adding a task is simple, just tap the “I want to” box and type it in. The task will then be added to the list.

Once a task is in the list you can swipe right to mark as complete (crossed through) and uncross it by swiping left.

You can drag items up and down the list.

Tapping on a task allows you to add priority, notes, a reminder or to edit the name.

As a total task management system goes, this application lacks lots of functionality. I could see no way to dealt complete tasks from the list. I tried to change a name to blank and it allowed that, so I had to change back to the task name again.

So if you used this every day for different tasks the screen would soon be filled with completed tasks. I would also liked to have seen multi list support.

The user interface is clean and easy to use.

On the upside:

  • Nice and clean user interface.
  • Simple to add new tasks.

On the downside:

  • Missing key functionality.
  • Multi list support would be nice.
  • The bomb icon does not give the right impression of the application.

Overall, as a piece of Alpha software this is very good. The rating would be fair if this was a finished release, but as this is so early in development it is a little unfair, as the developer is likely to do a lot more with the application before it is released. I think this application is worth keeping an eye on in future.
