Capture Your Ideas and Realize Them with the Quire App

Capture Your Ideas and Realize Them with the Quire App

Wouldn’t it be great to get all your ideas and thoughts down in one place, as words or images, and then realize them as goals in the real world, whenever you want and wherever you are?

There are moments when we see something we are keen on capturing. This could happen on the bus, subway, train, plane, or while walking down the street. Instead of spending the time to explain what you see on paper, or attempting to memorize things in your mind, the free iOS app by Quire can be used to capture all that you need with just a few taps. You can break your captures into tasks, assign them to your team members, add due dates, prioritize, reply to comments posted by members, and get instant notifications and updates wherever you are.

    The 3-in-1 Snap to Add

    When you tap on the “+” icon in the Quire app, you’ll see three options: Text, Camera and Photos. You may think that the simplest and quickest way to capture your ideas is by choosing Text, but with Camera and Photos you can do what you need to do in just a few seconds.

      With this function, as shown in the image above, you can add some text, capture an image, or import a task from your iPhone’s photo album to save you the trouble of writing everything down.

      When you’re in a meeting, for example, you can take a shot of scribbles and drawings on the board (rather than having to type them), and immediately add it as a task to work on later.

      Another scenario that could happen to you: while taking a walk down the park, if you suddenly envision the theme to your next brilliant screenplay — you can easily capture this moment with the Quire app for your future reference.

      Take the Quire App on the Go

      Quire has released its first ever iOS app to simplify your task management, especially when you’re on the go. With the Quire iOS app, you can add, schedule, and manage your tasks as well as chat with your colleagues in real time.

      For example, you can swipe to quickly complete, delete, add a task or subtask, easily type a description, or leave a comment with attachments in “task detail” to update your team members. It also allows you to assign tasks to your team, giving them due dates, priorities, and tags.

      Another benefit of this app is that you don’t need to worry about losing your work. Even if you lose your internet connection, you can continue with whatever you’re working on in the app offline. After your connection is restored, it lets you save all the changes you made by syncing them automatically.

      Simple and Rich Interface

      The interface and features of the app are an eye-catcher. Once you register with email or sign in with Google, there’s a simple introduction on the home screen welcoming you with a few of the basic features to help you kick-start a project.

      When you’re inside the app, you can find everything you need in as little as 3 taps.

        Many people nowadays are super active and would like to be able to do what they do on their desktops on their smartphones. That includes things like tracking and getting updates on work, no matter where they go. What’s important, however, is that people want to get their ideas and thoughts down faster, without going through the trouble of jotting them down — or worse, forgetting them in the back of their heads. This whole process seems much more simplified when you have the iOS app by Quire. If you have an iPhone, you can easily download it for free from the App Store to test out its efficiency.

        7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

        7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

        Now that 2011 is well underway and most people have fallen off the bandwagon when it comes to their New Year’s resolutions (myself included), it’s a good time to step back and take an honest look at our habits and the goals that we want to achieve.

        Something that I have learned over the past few years is that if you track something, be it your eating habits, exercise, writing time, work time, etc. you become aware of the reality of the situation. This is why most diet gurus tell you to track what you eat for a week so you have an awareness of the of how you really eat before you start your diet and exercise regimen.

        Tracking daily habits and progress towards goals is another way to see reality and create a way for you clearly review what you have accomplished over a set period of time. Tracking helps motivate you too; if I can make a change in my life and do it once a day for a period of time it makes me more apt to keep doing it.

        So, if you have some goals and habits in mind that need tracked, all you need is a tracking tool. Today we’ll look at 7 different tools to help you keep track of your habits and goals.

        Joe’s Goals

          Joe’s Goals is a web-based tool that allows users to track their habits and goals in an easy to use interface. Users can add as many goals/habits as they want and also check multiple times per day for those “extra productive days”. Something that is unique about Joe’s Goals is the way that you can keep track of negative habits such as eating out, smoking, etc. This can help you visualize the good things that you are doing as well as the negative things that you are doing in your life.

          Joe’s Goals is free with a subscription version giving you no ads and the “latest version” for $12 a year.

          Daytum

            Daytum

            is an in depth way of counting things that you do during the day and then presenting them to you in many different reports and groups. With Daytum you can add several different items to different custom categories such as work, school, home, etc. to keep track of your habits in each focus area of your life.

            Advertising

            Daytum is extremely in depth and there are a ton of settings for users to tweak. There is a free version that is pretty standard, but if you want more features and unlimited items and categories you’ll need Daytum Plus which is $4 a month.

            Excel or Numbers

              If you are the spreadsheet number cruncher type and the thought of using someone else’s idea of how you should track your habits turns you off, then creating your own Excel/Numbers/Google spreadsheet is the way to go. Not only do you have pretty much limitless ways to view, enter, and manipulate your goal and habit data, but you have complete control over your stuff and can make it private.

              What’s nice about spreadsheets is you can create reports and can customize your views in any way you see fit. Also, by using Dropbox, you can keep your tracker sheets anywhere you have a connection.

              Evernote

              Advertising

                I must admit, I am an Evernote junky, mostly because this tool is so ubiquitous. There are several ways you can implement habit/goal tracking with Evernote. You won’t be able to get nifty reports and graphs and such, but you will be able to access your goal tracking anywhere your are, be it iPhone, Android, Mac, PC, or web. With Evernote you pretty much have no excuse for not entering your daily habit and goal information as it is available anywhere.

                Evernote is free with a premium version available.

                Access or Bento

                  If you like the idea of creating your own tracker via Excel or Numbers, you may be compelled to get even more creative with database tools like Access for Windows or Bento for Mac. These tools allow you to set up relational databases and even give you the option of setting up custom interfaces to interact with your data. Access is pretty powerful for personal database applications, and using it with other MS products, you can come up with some pretty awesome, in depth analysis and tracking of your habits and goals.

                  Bento is extremely powerful and user friendly. Also with Bento you can get the iPhone and iPad app to keep your data anywhere you go.

                  You can check out Access and the Office Suite here and Bento here.

                  Analog Bonus: Pen and Paper

                  All these digital tools are pretty nifty and have all sorts of bells and whistles, but there are some people out there that still swear by a notebook and pen. Just like using spreadsheets or personal databases, pen and paper gives you ultimate freedom and control when it comes to your set up. It also doesn’t lock you into anyone else’s idea of just how you should track your habits.

                  Conclusion

                  I can’t necessarily recommend which tool is the best for tracking your personal habits and goals, as all of them have their quirks. What I can do however (yes, it’s a bit of a cop-out) is tell you that the tool to use is whatever works best for you. I personally keep track of my daily habits and personal goals with a combo Evernote for input and then a Google spreadsheet for long-term tracking.

                  What this all comes down to is not how or what tool you use, but finding what you are comfortable with and then getting busy with creating lasting habits and accomplishing short- and long-term goals.
