Orderly is a Tekton Technologies developed to-do list app which which is exclusive only to apple mobile devices (ipads and iphones). In a world where reminder and task apps actually complicates life, making one to opt going on without the need of one, orderly definitely stands out amongst its competition because if its simplicity and is available at the itunes store for $0.99 fully unlocked with no in-app purchases.
Taking a more insightful look at the app, you are greeted by a thorough tutorial when you open the app for the first time. Daunting as it may look, you can really get by without even using the tutorial as the icons in the app are reletively obvious which in part makes this app stand out. This is what makes the orderly app absolutely fabolous. To get going, tap the”+” icon at the top right corner to bring out the task creation screen. On the screen you can then add the title and list down the task. At the top of the task creation screen you are able to style your task with either colour or font. This is done by tapping the “T” button. Beside the “T” button there is a clock which allows you to set a reminder to your task or reminder.

Very simple indeed.
A great feature of this app is that it is not cluttered with functions, on the contrary, the developers took a minimalistic approach by putting in the most basic of features. The app separates to do lists into three categories which are high, medium and low priorities. You can create list inside a list and then prioritize the urgency of your chore by either dragging it to the top of the list or by or set a due date which allows the app itself to prioritize your list. Orderly has a home and work view which allows you to separate your tasks and reminders, making ones life more streamlined and simpler to follow.
