DropTask Unveil Updates to Their Task Management App That Offers a "Game Changing" Visual Approach

Offering a Refreshingly Enjoyable Way to Manage the Daily Workload, the Visual Productivity App That Uses 'Big Picture Thinking' Is Setting Out to Revolutionize the Task Management Industry

CARDIFF, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Sep 17, 2014) -  Innovation and visual thinking experts at DropTask are rolling out a series of updates for their web-based task management application, DropTask. Delivering an intuitive and enjoyable experience, the app allows individuals and teams to easily manage anything from everyday errands to responsibilities in the workplace with a visual approach that's instinctive to the way our minds think.

Packed with power that's delivered intuitively to the user, DropTask moves away from traditional lists and linear drop-down menus that are used to manage information and instead encourages users to feel more engaged and connected to their workload by using 'big picture thinking.'

Chris Griffiths, CEO of DropTask, states, "Our brains love images as they allow us to construct meaning with virtually no effort, whereas processing text requires a significantly increased amount of energy and mental focus."

"With respect to productivity, this means we can now go beyond the simple list and instead explore the scope of our work to literally 'see' things get done."

Experiencing early success with a flood of positive feedback from critics and users on a global scale, DropTask joins the rising trend of visual apps which are becoming increasingly prevalent and popular on the web.

DropTask user Greg Liberto takes to Twitter to state, "Game-changing that when I think about doing something I actually visualize adding it to my @droptask dashboard."

With positive coverage from several top publications, DropTask also reached the top spot in the Google Apps Marketplace under 'productivity' earlier this year, whilst being compared to market leaders despite its 'newcomer' status.

"No-one could have anticipated the reception that we received so early on. There are hundreds of productivity apps out there all offering the same set of powerful features and functionality, but in an effort to find a solution they could be alienating the masses," says Chris Griffiths.

"We're doing something different here at DropTask. To be powerful, project management doesn't have to be complex to use and understand. The science behind visual thinking has been around for years and we want to use what we know to offer a better solution to the millions of people who battle the daily struggle to plan their time effectively and get things done."

With its latest enhancements -- including a redesign of the user interface, the colourful and interactive approach also seeks to add enjoyment to the user experience. Darren Rees, Head of Development at DropTask, claims, "When you get into work in the morning the last thing you want to do is feel overwhelmed by a complex system displaying the over-abundance of things you need to do in a monotonous way. DropTask breathes life into the process of having to manage an ever-growing stack of responsibilities, and so the value behind giving your team a productivity tool they actually want to use is immeasurable."
