Alternative to Wunderlist! Hello Focus is the alternative to Wunderlist that helps you put the "pro" back in "productivity"

From List Maker to Action Taker

Hello Focus is the alternative to Wunderlist that helps you put the “pro” back in “productivity”

If you’re planning a vacation with your friends, Wunderlist may be all you need.

But if you’re planning to get make some serious progress in your work life and with your professional time, then Hello Focus is the app that makes the entire project of organization way more organized.

Where does Wunderlist excel? How does Hello Focus help you make meaningful strides to getting that “to-do list” down to “done!”?

We give you the breakdown.

Turning the “task manager” into “project manager”

A list is not just a grouping of tasks. It’s a shot of everything in your life that’s in motion. It marks what needs to get done – not just shuffled around.

Simple task management should give you the ability to zoom in to your daily tasks while allowing you to zoom out and take stock of your overall progress. Hello Focus lets users see how their day-to-day tasks are integral pieces in a bigger puzzle.

It’s not just about a list that needs to get done. It’s about setting goals with soul.

That’s why Hello Focus lets you track completion, checking out nitty gritty details like who on the team is working on which task, set and forget the recurring tasks and helps you break down a complex project into manageable, focused sub-tasks.

Hello Focus brings your attention to what matters

Speaking of “focus”, that’s our middle name (and our app name, in case you missed it) and we harness the power of focus using such effective and scientifically-proven hacks that even your sabotaging tendency to procrastinate won’t be able to get in the way.

The problem with making lists is that they can go on forever and you can be seized by decision fatigue: how do you decide what takes priority? How do you actually take action and stay focused?

We all know what needs to get done – so how come we don’t do always get to it? Answer: overwhelm. We may not have more to do but we have more things competing for our attention.

Our “Do Not Disturb” feature and task viewing according to priority and due date means that you get to:

  • Zone out the rest of the world, dim the other apps nagging for your attention and stay focused on that One Thing you’re conquering right now
  • Predict possible conflicts to your time, deliverables and tweak your tasks accordingly
  • Use our app like a massive brain-dump: get all the important deliverables down and outta that headspace, free it up, set dates on your tasks and leave the rest to us – Hello Focus only shows you what’s relevant.

One Task, Several Views

Hey, we’re not here to reinvent the wheel. But we don’t like to leave things to chance either. A floating list like Wunderlist is viewable only in one way: as a list.

You can assign it to others, star it, create a reminder and group similar items together, but you can’t look at it any other way. And this means you can’t rely on it to give you any kind of reliable feedback. In short, a list, is a list, is a list.

With Hello Focus, a task is a part of a greater task – perhaps even a team-shared task – which can then be a bigger part of a project – all viewable as a Gantt Chart.

Remember when we said we didn’t want to reinvent the wheel? Our Gantt Chart software takes the effectiveness and efficiency that traditional teams and projects experience when they use this smart visualization method.

Using Gantt Charts in Hello Focus, teams get the insight they need and target tasks, reset timelines and maybe even take out irrelevant details completely.

With Hello Focus, you can leave the organization to the app so you can focus on truly “GTD”: getting things done.

Ready to get behind the wheel and take ‘er for a test drive?

Two months from now…you’ll be wishing you had started today.

But don’t be surprised if you never make another list again and still stay productive.

Focus View

Stay Focused

Evidence shows that multi-tasking makes us less productive. That's why our "Focus" view only ever shows you one task at a time. From this view you can complete the task, delegate it and break it down if it's too daunting.

Stay Organized

Not only can multi-tasking make you less productive, not planning your day can equally have damaging effects on your productivity. That's why Hello Focus asks you to plan and organize your day, every morning.

Get more done.
