Description

Keep on top of everything in your head, whether it’s movies to watch or the details of your next big project. Designed for busy people who live by making lists to stay on track at work and home, the digital card based design is a clutter-free way to visualise everything that needs doing. Collect your thoughts in a calm interface with simple natural language like “Water the plants every Saturday” then let Actions take care of reminding you automatically. –––FEATURES––– • Create Action Cards to note things you do not want to forget. • Type naturally like “Post status report every second Friday” and Actions takes care of the scheduling, reminders and notifications. • Drag and drop your Action Cards into custom Lists to organise them intuitively • Colour code each list to further personalise your productivity system • Use the Schedule to see all of the Actions coming up • Swipe on Action Cards to complete them, delete them and set reminders. • Add free-form notes to Action Cards for extra details like phone numbers • Get push notifications, you can quickly choose reminders for the Morning, Afternoon, Evening or custom times • Create repeating actions with advanced rules like “Call Sam every second Tuesday in June” • Automatically and securely sync all of your Actions to the cloud instantly • To keep your lists manageable, Actions will automatically suggest Action Cards that should be rescheduled or deleted • Use the iOS Share extension to bring lists from other apps into Actions easily • Use Siri to manage your actions for hands-free productivity! Actions is a sophisticated app for getting things done, but it’s even more powerful if you have Timepage. With Timepage installed, your calendar events will automatically appear in the Schedule screen in Actions so you can see everything in context.

  • Repeating Actions

    2
    By penslions
    Started using this and Timepage about a week ago. Bought for a month to try it out. I like the look and layout but basic stuff is not working. Looks like repeating “by time” actions are not showing up again. Just completed a half dozen actions today and they have not shown back up for the later date. I saw an old review commenting on this and it did not look to be resolved. When I entered an event and set the date it would refer back to today’s date when I set it. Had to pull it back up and change the date again.
  • Timepage and Actions - Review

    By chemstudent86
    All I can say is... wow. I have run the gamut of all of these freeware apps and none of them even come close to the features and most importantly, for me anyway, design aesthetic of these two apps together. They are definitely worth $23.98/yearly. Thank you so much for developing this app, guys. Keep the ideas and updates coming...
  • Need integrations!

    By hangtwenty
    Surprisingly good, I say surprising because - though I appreciate good design - for a todos app I want functionality. But together with their calendar app, the drag and drop “card” todos become quite nice. It works well for my day to day items and breaking something down, but Ill keep using Todoist as well for now. NEED integrations to Apple Reminders and/or Zapier and/or Todoist... That’s why it can’t be a 5 yet. I don’t think it’s worth the subscription as-is, yet I am trying it paid for a bit based on other reviews. If it gets the outcome I want - better scheduling and better IRL results - then it doesn’t matter how I’d critique the features compared to competitors.
  • All of my Lists Disappeared

    1
    By Amy in Gallatin
    I loved this app until everything I had put in was gone. I had used it for 2 months after paying for a full year subscription. Now when I go to the app it says that I have to be a member to use the features, but when I sign in it says I am already a member only to send me back to the same screen that asks me to sign up to be a member. It is very frustrating. What is really strange is that Timepage (the calendar app from moleskin) still works without any problems.

    Is it possible so i’m autistic write this app is great as i know when i need to eat or when i have to be doing this and that. but when i make new list or forgotten one with time, it the list shows up as o types rather than in chronological order. i’d like to show up as chronological order. thank you for great app.
  • Excellent except has no MacOS app

    4
    By Allston-Tollcross
    This is the task app that you will actually use. The design and responsiveness are first-rate. Unfortunately there’s no MacOS app, which makes it necessary to stick to the iPhone/iPad platform to enter tasks in. That’s the only reason I limited my review to four stars — in some cases it would be more efficient for me to enter tasks from a desktop.

  • What I Have Been Looking For!

    By A and K Miller
    I had looked around to all sorts of personal assistant apps and calendar/reminder solutions all while knowing there was something out there like this. Intuitive and stunning to look at, Moleskine finally have an app experience that is worth writing about.
  • Badge Count

    4
    By DT169
    5 starts when badge count is added as a feature. Seems like that would be a no brainer in my opinion. If you can’t get the task that is set completed at the moment a current badge count would help you to remember to come back to the app. Will delete after trail expires and stick with Things for the time being.
  • Amazing, but not perfect.

    By alexNder27
    Love this app, just subscribed and has been better than the native iPhone app reminder list. I just wish it had some location based reminders that and maybe a priority option, I think, would make it perfect for me. Still a great app, very intuitive and simple to use.
  • Beautifully made, but:

    2
    By Occam’s Razor
    You’ll be paying for it for the rest of your life. I reject subscription-only apps on principal. Developer, we are not dairy cows for you to milk monthly or annually. Charge a one-time fee and I’ll buy. Otherwise keep your app.
  • Buggy Right Now

    3
    By LarryW1967
    I downloaded this app to see how it stacked up with my other to do app. First I like the integration with Timepage, but I have noticed a bug in the program where it erases my date of a repeating task and sets it to today’s date when entering the task. Will keep an eye on the progress the developer makes toward fixing this bug.
  • Beautiful but missing important feature

    3
    By Tad Davis
    It’s a beautiful app, as are all Moleskine products (software and “hardware”), but I can’t use it as my default to-do app. I need three levels to break things down, and the app only gives me two: lists and actions. I need to be able to add subtasks or a checklist to each action. Without this, the lists become unwieldy. As an example of how this could be done, I would point to Apple’s Notes app, where a note can become a checklist with the click of a button. The App Formerly Known As Wunderlist (now Microsoft To-Do) shows another, more elaborate way to break things down, with separate Notes and Subtasks. I haven’t worked with it enough recently to have an opinion on the sync option, except for this: it would be nice if it synced with Reminders, but that wouldn’t be necessary if it provided all the features of Reminders. At present, I think it does: but note that the forthcoming iOS 13 version of Reminders will offer.... subtasks.
  • Not really free

    By Hokan__
    It is really just a short-term free trial. Then you must pay a monthly or annual subscription. No thanks.
  • combine it with timepage

    4
    By Lorenzo White
    perfect time management if you combine it w timepage. The fact that it’s separate is the only reason not 5 stars.
  • My personal choice!!!!

    5
    By DraftingDanny1234
    First thing first is to play with it, make different lists (work, school, everyday tasks) and just add to them and you’ll see the simplicity. At this moment I’m in the 3rd day of the free trial and it’s already been helping so much because of how easy the interface is to work. Now I’m considering buying Time Page as well because of how it interacts with it and all the smart features it has as well. After using Planner Pro this combo of apps have won me over! Keep up the good work!!
  • Why can’t I type in the time?

    2
    By Wutzhappn
    I find it completely annoying that this app removes the time that I type into the headings and hides it under reminders. I want to be able to see the times up front as I scroll. This flaw makes this app completely useless to me. Is this a ploy to make me purchase the other app?
  • Organized my life so I can live

    I always have a million projects going on and a full to do list for both home and work. Finally I can enjoy my free time without trying to remember all the things I have to focus on later!
  • Great integration with Timepage

  • Scam App, Glad I Didn’t Subscribe

    1
    By sabrina litty2
    I was just going to leave a review about how trash it is to set up an app like this to bait and switch you at the last moment with “wait wait wait, you won’t be able to use it AT ALL unless you subscribe ;) btw no free trials, guess you’ll just have to waste money to find out what it’s like!” which...wow. I know it’s separate but it’s great to know the quality of apps matches the notebooks. But knowing their developer responses are all snarky or dismissively apologetic? Y’all wouldn’t deserve my money either way, there are about a thousand to do list apps and all of them are infinitely better on the principle that they actually work BEFORE you put money into them. Anyway saying all that to say I’m glad I’m a Leuchtturm girl, yall can keep this.
  • Worth the money!!

    5
    By Just Your Average Goob
    I love being organized and tracking my tasks. I’m currently in grad school and have tried the native apps on my iPhone for calendar and reminders and never liked them. I also tried google calendar, and it was just bluh. Actions and Timepage are not only aesthetically pleasing, but they make it easier and more fun to organize your time and to do list. I freaking love it, and will gladly pay the money every year to keep these apps. Well done!
  • Good app with two flaws

    3
    By Heialfnegaizkfbeuaodjehwoxj
    Love this task app, best one I’ve used so far. I have two major issues: 1. I can’t type days into the title of the task. I write schedules for my job so if I need a reminder that says “add Jon to Saturday schedule,” I’m screwed. As far as I can tell there is no way to type in the day of the week without that changing the due date of the task and making the word disappear from the title. 2. There is a bug when setting recurring tasks that aren’t on the same day. For example, if I want to set a monthly task that doesn’t start until next month, I have to input the whole thing, it’ll change the date to today no matter what, and then I have to edit the task again. Besides these two things this has been a great app for me so far.
  • Love this app!

    By ADDbounceyball
    I love the simplicity of this app. It's simple and intuitive so I'm more likely to actually use it. I have noticed a bug lately where I can't complete tasks. I tap complete but it still stays pending. Once moleskine clears that bug up it'll be awesome.

  • Delete All My Lists

    1
    By Xinebenix
    This is all nice and stuff until Actions suddenly decides to delete all my lists. Now I am not sure if I should trust it with all my memos anymore.
  • Nice, but why?

    1
    By Al Zal
    This is a nicely designed todo app. But why does it need to have a monthly/subscription model? This seems to be an increasing trend amongst developers, but does not make sense to consumers. One dollar a month (ok two actually once the 50% promotion ends) is not much, but if every app starts going this then it will be too much. So I am not subscribing.
  • One Missing Function

    3
    By mg8199
    If you had a location based reminder function then I would have stuck with this app. Until then, it's the basic Reminders app for me.
  • I LOVE this app! I only have one problem with it.

    4
    By Puzzlesolver7751
    This is the to do list app I’ve been looking for for at least a year. I love the way it’s organized. How you have have items that don’t populate until scheduled. The color choices for each list are great too! My only caveat is that I accidentally swipe items and cross them out all the time. I wish that the app would respond to the “undo” motion in my iPhone. (You can choose a setting on iPhone that when you shake the phone, it preforms an undo from your last action. Usually if you accidentally delete some text.)
  • Gorgeous, but...

    By FM_M
    The team at Molskine have done another superb job of making information feel simple and approachable, and easy to see *and understand* at a glance. That’s no small task, and the work they’ve done here with Actions (and earlier with Timepage) is absolutely superb. However... The interaction between Lists and Tasks is identical to what’s in iOS’ Reminders, but they don’t just access that iCloud data (as they do with Calendars in Timepage), they make their own. When making your own that point would be to create a better information organization model, but it’s identical. You can’t create a multi-step Task that you want to do today, you have to make a List and then put every Task in that List into your day. There’s no better way to create a slightly more complex task (“make food for the week” could have 7-8 steps you might want to keep order of, but that has to be a List). If there were a slightly more detailed data footprint vs Reminders, I’d love that. Or integration with Reminders, so I could connect to that information in other places too. But lack of both is ... well, it’s really odd. Also, while swiping to mark done is the method on the phone, for some odd reason it’s a long-hold to make the line slide to the side to reveal the Done marker. Swiping to the side to make the line slide to the side would make MUCH more sense - that’s a small detail, yet utterly baffling.
  • AMAZING, but suggestions

    5
    By Controls are hard
    I think that there should be two things added. 1. I think that having a “hourly” option for tasks you would like to repeat every hour or every few hours would be handy. Maybe even a minute frequency option. 2. I think that have sub lists under a main action would be great. Something the like the notes option when you click on an action but it would be a sub list you had the option to add. An example would be like having an action titled “clean the bathroom” and when you clicked on the tile and option would show up saying “sub-list” where you could add “whip down counters, clean shelves” etc... Overall amazing app I love it!
  • Fantastic App

    For 30+ years I was a disciple of the Franklin planning system. I followed it religiously and it worked for me. In fact I would never even think about trying to use a different system. I experimented with GTD other systems but none of them really fit what I was doing on the h Franklin system. Of course eventually they merged with Steven Covey and it was somewhat OK but I was hooked on daily and not weekly even bough I made sense. So, fast forward... I am now 65 years old although I travel extensively both domestic and internationally I no longer wanted to carry a bulky binder like the classic size but anything smaller just didn’t work for all my data and information. Thus enters the iPhone and eventually the iPad. Well, all the companies were trying to make their systems work and they just began to make a simple planning system complicated... Until NOW. Using both the Actions and Time Page Apps are a dream come true. My only request is Please Keep These Active! A Convert, Rick Texas
  • Almost perfect

    3
    By Esbee77
    This app is simple, beautifully designed, and integrates well with timepage. The programmers have created a beautiful, flexible way to organize a day or a project. There is one feature that keeps this from being a true staple of my productivity practice, however. When you create a reminder in the native reminders app, it populates on your lock screen when due until you dismiss it. If I really need to remember to do something, I need for it to be in my face at all times until I do the thing. This is especially true during the work week. So to remember to go to the app each day to see what’s due is tough. I’d happily subscribe every year if this feature is added.
  • Getting worse instead of better

    3
    By Slimbergh
    Most recent update was supposed to “improve performance” of the app. Instead, it has almost completely bricked it. I run Actions on a brand new iPad Pro, and the performance is worse after the update; the app now lags for almost 60 seconds before updating simple task changes like a reminder time change. Moleskine has been promising for a YEAR that a version for Mac OS/Web is coming so we can actually see our tasks across all devices, and they have gone radio-silent and that version is still not released. And, Actions STILL cannot sync with iCloud reminders. So, while I think there are some apps that can ethically-justify charging a subscription fee to defray the costs of continuously-improving the app, Actions is NOT one of them. I would discourage anyone not already using this buggy app from starting to use it now. I hope Moleskine gets their act together because the app has a lot of potential, but it just doesn’t work well now.
  • Not working

    By basic ok
    I would love to use this app to go. Along with Timepage, but it’s still in read only mode and my Apple subscriptions says i have an active subscription so I don’t know why it’s not working! Is this something new?
  • Love it!

    5
    By Rad_bjorn
    I have the subscription for both this and their ‘Timepage’ app and love how they both work together flawlessly. The interface is simple and I love the widgets and notifications. My only thing, and this is really just a personal opinion, but I do wish they would combine the two apps (Timepage and Actions). They work perfectly together but honestly I feel like it would be amazing if the two were joined instead of being separate. That’s just my opinion, though. Nonetheless, this is great for anyone looking for something simple and straightforward task management app!
  • Best iPhone Calendar App I Ever Had!

    5
    By Dharma Wheeler
    This is simply the most elegant, amazing and simple yet awesomely powerful Calendar app I have ever used. It syncs all my other calendars instantly (e.g., Apple Calendar, Google Calendar and 3rd party client initiated scheduling apps on my website. My only deep regret is that they don’t have a desktop version to sync across all my Apple devices but that’s got to be in the works.
  • How is this worth $12?

    1
    By mcrobot
    I am struggling to see how they could be asking $12 per year for this app. The functionality is insanely limited compared to Wunderlist, Reminder, Trello, Asana, etc. there is nothing that stands out as worth the charge compared to the competition. I can’t share actions with anyone but myself. I can only see them on my phone. I can’t record many details per tasks. It’s super simple for the price.
  • Best to do app

    By Cganssle
    Subscribed for a year after trying it. Shows I paid for a subscription but does not come out of read only mode. Get an error message that says “Cannot connect to iTunes Store”. Canceled subscription and resubscribed... deleted and reinstalled... signed out and back in...nothing. Happening for both Timepage and Actions. Been waiting for support for over a day.
  • Great & Improving

    5
    By essdeekay1
    For the most part, I love the user interface and the tile format. I’m glad you all made it so that we could schedule the action when we created it, instead of having to exit the action first. However, it’d be nice if on the day-view section, we could order the actions and have them remain in that order. This feature allows us to organize within the day not just assign actions to a day. I use Actions for everything! I’m a grad student so I have tiles for each individual class, personal tasks, general professional things, and then I create them as needed for different projects I take on. I love color coding the tiles b/c it helps me keep everything clear with just a glance. I’m considering breaking up the personal tile but that’s easily doable with this app. It’s also great for “brain dumping” because you can list out a bunch of tasks on a tile but then wait to schedule them, ensuring that you don’t forget anything that needs to be done down the road. However, I've been experiencing a glitch when I schedule a daily, indefinitely reoccurring action, after a day or two, it won’t reoccur anymore. So I have to keep creating it which is obviously frustrating. Update: They made it so you can order the Actions for the day on one device but the order doesn’t update on all devices. Still it’s great to be able to do this. Also, at some point after my initial review, all of those reoccurring actions that had been disappearing reappeared and I had to clear them all individually. Inconvenient of course but whatever the glitch was, I haven’t had any trouble since then. Still using and loving the app.
