After almost two years of work, we're excited to finally release Planrow! It's a task planning and management app designed and built for self-directed, independent work.
We hope it will help you towards completing your big plans by formulating and organising the smaller steps you need to take to get there.
Here's a quick 1-2-3 on how Planrow is designed to help you achieve just that.
1. Note Ideas & Complete Tasks
Note-taking and task management tools have traditionally been separate entities in the personal workflow of most people. Continual use of the former unfortunately tends to lead towards a buildup of notes and documents, which are hard to organise and take action on.
With the latter, the individual granularity of to-do task items means that they aren't particularly suited to anything more complex than a long grocery list.
Planrow was built to help you plan your day in detail, while at the same time keeping your broader future on track towards your larger goals.
The app allows you to craft plans as you would in a traditional note-taking app, then pull them in to a calendar-based view once you're ready to decide when you'd like to act on them.
With Planrow, you're also able to refine your plans with an increasing degree of granularity as it approaches the next quarter, month, or week.
2. Privacy Protections 🔒
When we set out to create a task planning tool, we knew that privacy was certainly going to be one of the more important concerns for our potential customers. Nobody wants others to be able to snoop around in their extremely detailed future plans.
And so, we've made it a point to bake privacy-focused features into the app right from the very start.
All text contents of your tasks and plans are securely encrypted with your password, before it ever leaves your device to sync with our servers. This way, other parties (us included) do not and cannot read your data — it's simply impossible without your password, which only you know.
That's how we ensure that your data is private and strictly for your eyes only.
3. Sustainable & No-nonsense
And for the last point in this overview: Planrow is built to sustainable and no-nonsense — we stay sustainable by charging a subscription, which is the only way we make money.
By paying for Planrow, you also support its continued operation and development.
We do this so we don’t have to rely on showing you ads, selling your data to third parties, collecting private data about you with trackers, or sending you annoying emails so that we can continue running the service.
This allows us to develop the product in direct service of our customers and users.
Create your own plan! 🎉
Those were just the main points we thought we should cover in this post — you can discover what the app has to offer for yourself by creating your own plans directly in the app.
Planrow version 1.0.10 is now available as a web app via your web browser, and you can get started with a fully-featured 14-day free trial here.
We'll also be looking to continually improve the app with updates as well as bring it to other platforms and devices in the future, so watch out for new posts here.
Meanwhile, we hope you'll enjoy using Planrow! 😁
