Windows Phone App of the Week: Chaos Control Helps You Get Things Done


Chaos Control is a new productivity app aimed at preventing users from getting overwhelmed by the sheer number of things they need (or want) to do.

The app takes after the strategies laid out in the popular self-help book Getting Things Done. The app remains flexible enough for anyone to use, though – mainly, it lets you lay out clear, identifiable goals, and then prioritize and organize them in a way that makes sense for you. You can create time management schedules for each goal. It’s nothing you can’t do with a pencil and a piece of paper, but it is awfully nice to have something easy to read and edit, especially when that thing allows you to keep track of multiple goals in one centralized location.

You can also schedule tasks that have specified due dates, then keep a running tab on what tasks need to be finished on any given day. It’s a planner for the present and future, and I have a feeling that’s going to come in handy for more than a few people.

Chaos Control is available for Windows Phone 7, Android, and Symbian. An iOS app and a Windows Phone 8 version will be available soon, as well. You can pick up Chaos Control for $2.99.
