Every Friday I share one of my favourite finds of the week — a website, tool or an app that has impressed me.
My Friday Favourite this week is Braintoss – Capture Your To-Do’s in One Click.
What is it?
Braintoss is an app that enables you to capture your to-do’s in one click.
How can it help me?
If you’re constantly walking around with too many thoughts and ideas in your head, then Braintoss can help you.
One of the core tenets of productivity methodologies such as GTD (read more about David Allen – The Master of Getting Things Done) is that the mind isn’t for storing ideas. You need to get ideas out of your head and into a system.
Braintoss allows you to capture your thoughts — such as to-do’s, ideas, reminders and more — by pressing a button on the app and then simply speaking into it.
The resulting capture is then emailed to you as an audio file that you can listen back to later.
You can also use Braintoss to take photographs and capture other ideas, too.
Braintoss can also be configured to send your ideas to Dropbox, Evernote or another tool, to help keep your inbox uncluttered.
I carry a notepad and pen around with me wherever I go, to help me capture ideas as they come to me. I’ve found that whipping out my Smartphone and recording a Braintoss is often faster than using a notepad. I then review my Braintoss emails back at my desk.
How much does it cost?
Braintoss costs £1.99.
