Creator(s) / Founder(s) :
What it does:
Taco is an app and online platform that provides task management services.
Why you need this:
Taco app allows users to continue using services such as Basecamp, Pivotal Tracker, Remember The Milk, Unfuddle, Zendesk, and much more whilst providing task management services. It enables its users to keep a list of things that needs to be done and manage their time effectively.
The idea behind it.
The name Taco makes perfect sense to me. You can put almost anything inside a tortilla, roll it up, and call it a taco. That’s a good analogy used to describe this app – getting a bunch of disparate networks and rolling them up into your “taco”. Doesn’t hurt that the name’s short, easy to spell, and memorable. It can give you the visibility to confidently focus on one task and let you move from one specific task to another.
What Bob likes
Bob likes the starred emails feature, which he was cobbling together himself.
What it doesn’t have or doesn’t do
Integration with Streak would change investors’ lives. Bob also had issues integrating a single Github Repository. Perhaps, having a filter for that would be extremely useful. Nonetheless great app.
Bob Mini Review
Bob tried Taco App, out of curiosity as it is a productivity app that integrates well with most of the existing services that he use. Rather than actually managing his projects and tasks, this web-based app manages the applications that Bob’s use to manage his projects and tasks. It connects to his Trello, Basecamp, Zendesk, Asana, and many others. It’s free and easy to use that provides a simplified task list that’s viewable on a single page.
When Bob’s ready to work, he just needs to choose a task from your list and drag it into the “Up Next” section. If there’s an important task than all the rest, he just needs to click “Top” to move it to the top of the “Up Next” list. Marking off tasks as you complete them will automatically update your list both in its own app and in the app where the task was initially created. It has lots of uses. It can retrieve up to 500 tasks from each connected service, syncing Taco to connected services takes 10-15 seconds, and it provides users the option of completely removing the “For Later” sidebar. What’s more is that you can set it up to get daily email summaries with tasks from all your productivity accounts. Cool eh?
So far, this app helped Bob become more productive. It has made Bob focus and concentrate more on the task at hand. If you need to deal with multiple projects and tasks at the same time, you may find this very helpful.
Should you try it?
As per Bob, it’s a good app and you might like it if you are looking for a minimalistic app that would help you drive focus towards completing the task. But it seems that it is only useful for those who already use specific apps that this service supports
