Looking for a powerful, yet simple personal organizer / tasker app to get all your daily activities and schedules in order? You should try this one – Focus Matrix stands out among its many peers with its clean interface and principles borrowed from the "Eisenhower Box". This is a strategy for personal productivity devised by Dwight Eisenhower, 34th President of the United States. It's based on a "priority matrix" that promotes grouping daily tasks according to four levels of urgency and importance, and deciding which ones can be delegated to someone else, or simply crossed off today's list. Thus, a daily agenda can be fulfilled in the most efficient way.

Focus Matrix lets you move between two views – Matrix and List of Sections. Tasks can be easily moved along the two with a simple drag-and-drop. Sections can be maximized for a closer look at their contents, and the tasks contained within are assigned due dates and reminders so as not to miss them. Ones whose due dates come close to expiring are automatically brought into the Urgent list, and the app issues a notification.

The app has search and tags facilities as not to get lost in the mountain of stuff to do. Filtering tasks by tags and status (done/undone) is also available, for an easier time organizing your schedule. Additionally, Focus Matrix generates customized statistics and reports for completed tasks, and also features optional password protection.

While the basic version is free and fully functional, the paid Pro version ($1.99) has several advantages, such as cloud synchronization between Apple devices, Calendar integration (syncing tasks, due, and remind dates), and integration with the separate Be Focused app (which breaks up tasks in discrete intervals).
