Review: Presta – To Do Organizer v1.0.1 by Karta Mobile Inc, Keeping it Simple

January 26, 2012 | By | Add a Comment

Presta is brought to you from Karta Mobile Inc, the same developers of the application Viira, the Getting Things Done app. With Presta, the organizer becomes so much easier and simple, making it easy to keep ahead of things. If you need to organize projects and tasks, this is the easiest way to do so. Check it out…

When Chris told me about Presta, I had to check it out. I love Viira, but it can be a little technical and I found myself looking through the instructions to figure some of it out. It’s a very thorough but comprehensive app. It’s great for keeping up on all  you have going on. You’re own personal task keeper. It allows you to keep track of what’s finished and what’s not.

Presta is available in the BlackBerry App World. It comes with a seven day trial and is priced at $2.99. I downloaded it easily and it installs quickly. When I opened Presta, I found myself very impressed. It has all the explanations right there in the app. Everything is available at your fingertips. This is great for someone who wants to jot on the go, the person who doesn’t like complicated apps, the busy business person who doesn’t have time to figure it out, even the student for managing tasks. This is the easiest and most useful application for organization. I’ll walk you through it.

When you first open Presta, there are four tabs: Projects, Tasks, !, and Search. At the bottom there are three tabs: New, Star, and Delete. There are two introductory guides. Presta: Getting Started and Presta: Advanced Features. The Tasks in Getting Started has Order Task with Volume Up/Volume, Hide Completed Tasks, and Quick Add: Enter Tasks Quickly.

Advanced Features has Starred Projects and Lists, The Presta Shortcuts, Delegate Projects and Lists, Use Action Links, Native Tasks Sync, Compact Mode (for those of us with touchscreens, you’ll love it, and <No Project> Group.

General Settings has Start Presta in: Tasks, Projects, ! View, or Last View Used. Compact Mode which can be used if you have a touchscreen devicer. Show <No Project> group in Projects as show or do not show.

The ease of use with Presta is just amazing. I love how easy it is to start using, whether you read a lot into the directions or not. It’s just an all around easy app to use. You just go to the tab you want, type in the bar the name of the Task or Project, click add, and place your details in. You can add completed once it’s done. You can add reminders, star them, place them in !, even add notes. I love that it’s all in one app. I found it very easy to add a task, and I love that I can set a reminder and add notes. I can honestly say this app takes you from point A to point B effortlessly.

For the student, the average user who is short on time, the business person who’s been assigned a BlackBerry, the business user who doesn’t use their BlackBerry for more than email and calls and wants to use the device for more, even the beginner…you’ll benefit from using this app more than you’ll know.
