I have been using IQTELL for a few weeks. I’ve been using the free trial. But, it has already become my favorite productivity app. I didn’t think that it wouldn’t be much against Todoist. I still think Todoist is an awesome system, but I’ve already made the switch to IQTELL.
I’m always working on improving my methods. It’s part of how I’m adjusting my business, and how I get more things done. I enjoy the process, and I’m learning something new every single day.
The reason I switched to IQTELL
At first, I was just curious about what I’ve heard. IQTELL is the most amazing productivity system I’ve ever used. I trust my friends, and social proof is more important than ever. My friend told me I had to join the free 60 day trial. I really like guarantees like that. 60 days of use without paying. I was becoming a fan even before trying IQTELL.
There are at least 6 reasons why I’ve made the switch, and why I continue to be a huge fan of the productivity system.
- Great email client
- Great calendar
- Integrates perfect with Evernote
- Available on both web and mobile
- Searches everything
- Easy to use and complex at the same time
Let me tell you the details.
IQTELL has an awesome Email client
I’ve been using a lot of email clients, and I’m always switching back to Apple Mail. But, not this time. Adding all my email clients to to IQTELL was very fast and easy, even my Exchange accounts. I have added 5 email accounts, and it works great. I have control of email, with filters and short cuts. The design looks great, and it just feels right.
It integrates with all my calendars
I have added a lot of things to my calendar. I add “everything” with a date and time to it. I’m using both iCal and Fantastical, and usually, I need to open a new application to get an overview of my schedule. Now, it’s included in IQTELL. I can see all my different calendars, in the sidebar or in the full view. It makes things so much easier to get a good overview of my tasks, projects and the things I have scheduled.
Evernote is always just a click away
I’ve written about how I use Evernote before. IQTELL has Evernote integrated in a way that makes me take more advantage of all the various options in Evernote. I archive my most important e-mail, I search for my notes, everything is happening inside IQTELL. That’s one of the major reasons why I wanted to try IQTELL in the first place. Evernote is now one of my most important tools, for writing and for my business.
IQTELL is available on web and mobile
I need a web version and a mobile version of the software I use daily. I’m at the office, but I’m also a lot working from close to anywhere it’s possible to be working. The mobile app I am using for iPhone works great. It has everything included, and it’s easy to add new tasks, get a good overview of my daily tasks and future tasks, and read and reply to email. In short, it makes me stay productive even when I’m “on the run.”
It took me awhile to discover that it’s possible to do a search for everything at the same time. It’s just brilliant. Now, from everywhere inside IQTELL, I can do a search for keywords and I’ll get things from Evernote, from all my email accounts, my tasks, projects and my calendar.
Easy to use and complex at the same time
At first, I wasn’t sure how to use the system. It looked very complex, a different from all the other productivity systems I’ve been using before. I had to take a look at all the tutorials and videos before I started using it correctly. I’m not sure that I had to go through all the tutorials first, but I thought it was the safest thing to do. Now, I find it easy to use, but at the same time it has some really advanced features that makes it easy to scale. I believe it’s good way for me to improve in both business and productivity by using a system that challenges me to find new ways to use it.
