Free app helps manage tasks and time

Here's one to move on: iProcrastinate is a task-management app available for free through the Mac App Store. Users can color-code task lists, list the steps it will take to get them done, and set priority levels for each task. iProcrastinate is simple, but its simplicity makes setting it up a breeze for even the worst foot-draggers among us. The app also encourages users to break down tasks into component parts, making each chunk of a project seem a little easier. Task lists can also be shared with others to keep an eye on group projects.

Not only is it easy to use, its customization options make it invaluable. If, for example, you made a New Year's resolution to work out on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, iProcrastinate can keep you on track with a reminder you only have to set up once. Ideal for students trying to manage homework, practices and other extra-curricular activities, this app is a perfect way to introduce time-management skills as well.

iProcrastinate also offers a mobile app for 99 cents that will let you sync with your computer.
