TaskBooster was created to give individuals an effective way to meet personal goals and complete daily and weekly tasks. The application appeared in 2011 and offers users a collection of helpful, though somewhat basic, task management tools. The current version includes a few convenient organizational features that help users keep track of tasks and focus on goals, although the application still leaves much to be desired in terms of detail.
One main thing users will notice about TaskBooster is that it appears to be designed for individuals who want to keep lists of tasks and goals. The application does not offer anything for businesses or companies. It is all about the average internet user that wants to take hold of their schedules and get things done. The application maybe takes things a little too far because it seems to only offer up a few simple options that allow the user to record and organize tasks but doesn’t do much beyond that.
The TaskBooster interface is kept very simple, working in a few different shades of blue. It isn’t terrible to look at, but appears much like a basic day planner. The user can see their time slots and various tasks assigned to them. This format can be very effective for anyone who needs to do some scheduling and wants a few extra options. For the most part, TaskBooster is well organized although some areas border on bland.
A new user can create a TaskBooster account by clicking one of the two gold buttons that read “Sign Up Free” on the homepage. The registration form on the next page asks the user to provide their full name, email address and a password. The user is also asked to select their time zone from the dropdown box provided. A small box at the bottom of the form must be selected to confirm the user’s agreement with the TaskBooster terms of service before continuing. Users are advised that they should check for a confirmation message and link which must be accessed to complete registration.
Task Booster invites all users to try its services for free. There are no subscription fees and users are given access to all current features. The site notes that free accounts will remain free however down the road there are plans to add additional features that will come with a small monthly fee. The site does not state what those might be or how much they will cost. Users are reassured that the current features will remain available to everyone at no cost, regardless of what is added later.
TaskBooster is ideal for individuals that want an easy, online task and schedule organizing solution. The application works much like a day planner or online calendar. The user can add tasks to specific hour long time slots and review daily or weekly tasks and goals. TaskBooster lets users list all their tasks in one place so no time is wasted searching for separate lists or notes.
