This is the press kit for Sorted, the fastest way to schedule, control your time and plan your day. For more information contact:

So what is Sorted?

Sorted is a minimalistic, yet awesomely powerful day planner for the productivity obsessed. It is the fastest task management app on the App Store designed to help people juggle many tasks in a day. We even came up with some patented gestures to ensure the process is blisteringly fast.

Sorted allows you to add tasks to specific days at specific times and juggle them individually or collectively. At the core of Sorted is the tried and tested ticker filing system. A system that has been used by large organisations to track important tasks since the pre-digital age. Sorted takes the concepts of the tickler filing system, simplifies and enhances it with calendar integration, notifications, beautiful flags and delightful gestures.

You no longer need to keep large folders of notes, messages and lists. Sorted lets you turn bulky folders into a simple daily list and a calendar drawer.

In short, Sorted is the tickler file system redefined for iOS devices.

The story behind Sorted

Sorted started as a personal quest by Leo (creator of Sorted) to stay organised in a world of ever changing schedules. Requests come and go. Meeting times shift. Priorities change. Sticky notes get lost and to-do lists grow until they become overwhelming.

Task management is a marathon and Sorted keeps things simple. Knowing what to do, when to do it, without keeping everything in your head will allow you to focus on doing what matters.

Select multiple tasks with a single sweep and reschedule easily in seconds. Sorted works on your iPhones and iPads with a Mac app in beta. Built out from the core idea of getting things done, it offers the fastest task management app to help you get and #StaySorted.

What’s all this about patents?

In order to make the Sorted experience as seamless as possible we invented some new gestures. In particular, we wanted a way to multi-select tasks in one swipe. So we created a swipe gesture to do this.

We realised that this gesture was unique and so got in touch with the patent office in the US. After a bit of admin and support from the Hong Kong government we were granted a patent for our gesture.
