    Nice clean app. Things just work. 5 stars when we can edit tags. Best task manager I have tried in the last year

    Excellent app on Windows Phone. I've tried other apps and none works as well as Effectual!

    Simply the best app i have found to date for todo
  • by Shane 2/12/2014
    The most functional considering it has both live tile and detailed notifications status on lock screen. Thanks!

    Great but live tile has not been working since GDR3 / Lumia Black. Using Lumia 1520.

    I need the task reminder to be with time not only date

    Excelente aplicativo. Demorei a encontrar um bom substituto dos apps de android, mas esse superou minhas expectativas.

    Good idea but poor execution.. Takes too many steps to create a usable/meaningful task

    When installing, app asked for access to my contacts and friends. I hesitated, but app suggested this setting could be changed once installed. Well, now that it's installed, I can't find where to do this. Very misleading. I'll change rating if I'm missing something. I plan to uninstall and find something else.
