Up Next helps you logically decide what order you should complete tasks in

Up Next is a new type of task app that not only lets you enter todo items, but helps you decide when it's best to complete them. By using your location and the current time of day, Up Next looks at context to help you save time and complete your day in a more efficient manner.

When you first launch Up Next, it can import your existing appointments and reminders from the built-in Calendar and Reminders apps. After that you can start managing them through Up Next. If you've set up reminders or events with locations, it imports that information too.

To enter a task in Up Next just tap on the plus sign. You can add people to a task, add a location, and set a time. If you need to remember to do something before a specific time of day, you can easily tell Up Next that information so it can order your tasks appropriately. Up Next automatically updates your tasks in the order it thinks you should complete them. Tasks with certain time frames show the time as well.

If you happen to try out Up Next, let me know what you think in the comments!

Up Next helps you logically decide in what order you should complete tasks


oh am in love with this wallpaper!!! Can someone please give me the link of this or maybe upload a screen shot of this wallpaper!!!

P.S. Sorry for being off topic but this is BEAUTIFUL!!!!

Put this app on my iPad & iPhone because it will be available on Apple Watch but Reminders, for some bizarre reason, won't. It did not import any of my Reminders or Calendar events, even though I selected those options. It also doesn't appear to have a Notifications option. WHY don't they just make Reminders sync to Apple Watch???

Came back an hour after first downloading to find it HAD imported the calendars & reminders. And it provided a notification which was initially set in Reminders. I'm happy :)
