A while ago, we reported on GekoNewCal, which is a finger-friendly appointment manager for Windows Mobile. The developer has finally released its sister app for managing tasks, called GekoTask.
HTC Sense (TF3D) has greatly evolved over the past couple of years and managing appointments is no exception. However, many users still look for a separate app for managing tasks. GekoTask could easily fill this void. Regarding ease of use and finger-friendliness, the default Windows Mobile look certainly doesn’t cut it these days. You can test the full version for 15 days, after which it will run you 2.99 . View the list of features below and check it out at GekoNewmobile.
Main features & functions:
- Smart user interface: GekoTask is designed to achieve the best level of ergonomics and ease of use.
