Why not wrap item titles?

We recently got some great UserVoice feedback from Rikki asking for a feature to wrap item titles in the Sooner Or Later lists. This is a feature that was hotly debated by some of our testers, and I wanted to take this opportunity to explain why we explicitly chose not to implement this feature. One of the top design […]

Sooner Or Later 1.8 is in the store!

I’m very happy to announce that Sooner Or Later version 1.8 is now available in the Windows Phone Marketplace. And, as a thank you to those of you who already downloaded the free version with advertisements, you now own the advertising-free version at no cost to you. Once you upgrade, the in-app advertisements will simply vanish. […]

Still a believer in Sooner Or Later!

I must confess that I stopped using the Context-Focus system for a week or two. I just wanted to work on my latest project in my free time, so I stopped doing everything else in my Sooner Or Later list. It wasn’t long before I started to experience that familiar feeling of stress and anxiety […]

Coming Soon… Sooner Or Later 1.8

In response to your feedback, we’re now offering a paid version of Sooner Or Later with no advertisements! We debated whether or not to offer two different downloads in the app store, but finally decided to change the existing entry in the store to a paid app with a free trial. The free trial works […]

Getting back on track

I’ll be honest. I don’t always follow my Context-Focus system perfectly. In fact, lately, I’ve been completely focused on a new project for Hot Chai Productions to the exclusion of almost everything else, and my Later list has gotten really long. But that’s ok! One of the great things about this system is that it […]

Sooner Or Later Feedback

It’s always interesting to read the review feedback in the Windows Phone marketplace. We’ve had more than 1,000 downloads now, and the vast majority of the reviews have been very positive! Some of my favorite comments are short and to the point, like dogstar72 who writes, “Love it. Simple, clean, functional.”, and jpozas, who writes, […]

My typical day (Part 2)

Today we continue where I left off last time describing my typical day with Sooner Or Later. My last context change was “Leaving For Work”, and now I move to: Arrive at work When I arrive at work, I review my Soon list for the top items that I’ll focus on immediately. Here, I try […]

My typical day with the Context-Focus system.

Today I’m going to show you how I use the Context-Focus system with Sooner Or Later to take control of the things I have to do in a typical day. As I described previously, I use context changes throughout my day to interact with Sooner Or Later and refresh my brain with things that are […]

The Context-Focus system.

I’ve developed an organizational system based on the principles of the Focus and Context systems, with the additional goal of emptying my Soon list every day, that so far suits my lifestyle perfectly. Here’s how it works: At the start of each day, I review my Later list and move items that I want to […]
