Timeful, described as "the first intelligent time manager" for mobile devices, is a new iOS app designed to help users manage their lives by combining a time management app with a calendar, a to-do list, and habits. Timeful aims to provide a personalized experience that encourages people to commit to various self-improvement activities and complete goals.

The app connects to the calendar on an iOS device, importing already existing events into a daily view that includes all tasks that must be completed. It also incorporates to-do functionality, allowing users to create tasks and file them under separate colored headings like Personal, Work, Fun, and, Important. To-do tasks can be scheduled for "Today," "Tomorrow," "Someday in the next 7 days," or on a specific date.

Specific calendar events can be scheduled in much the same way, entering the task and selecting a time. One major negative of Timeful in comparison to other calendar apps is the fact that it doesn't accept conversational input, meaning users have to manually select times and dates for calendar events.

Along with accepting calendar and to-do input, Timeful also includes a "Habits" feature that sets it apart from other time management and task apps. With Habits, users can enter frequently repeated tasks such as "Take a Walk," selecting preferred days and times to perform the tasks, which Timeful will then work into a busy schedule. Events and habits show up directly on the calendar at scheduled times, while to-dos are listed at the top and can be completed at any time during the day.

As users complete tasks and fulfill habits, Timeful will learn more about a person's habits, figuring out the optimal time to present each task for completion.

Timeful is the first Intelligent Time Assistant that gets things scheduled so you'll get them done.

Timeful combines your calendars and to-do lists so you can see everything that's competing for your time in one place. It uses sophisticated algorithms and behavioral science to suggest - based on your own available time and location - the best times to schedule to-dos and good habits throughout your day.

Timeful can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

Why does macrumors report about this app?
Is it because this app is so great, or did the company pay MR to report this?

I also have an app that's going to be released, how do I get my app reviewed?

I find all these apps fail to account for all the time wasted fiddling with a time management app.

I'll give it a go though, because successfully arranging a busy week into a tidy chart provides about 73% of the psychological reward as actually getting those tasks done, and by the end of the editing session I'm often relaxed enough to sack off Monday's work entirely and worry about it some other time.
