Your Next Productivity Tool is…. How Planner Apps Will Rise & To-Do Apps… | by Francesco D'Alessio

I believe your next to-do list application, won’t be a to-do list app. The next major productivity application will be a planner application.

Francesco makes a concise argument why traditional task managers are going to be disrupted by “planner” apps. I’m not there yet myself, but I do think he’s onto something. I already use Fantastical for my calendar and love that I can get visibility to my tasks from Todoist/Reminders in that application as well, and adding notes to the mix could make it a one-stop-shop for me. Fantastical may not be the one to do this, but I could definitely see someone coming up and nailing the mix of these separate components.
