If your hectic life has you forgetting things that were at the top of your “list,” it may be time to think about getting some help. Luckily, SeizeTheDay has been designed to be your polite, if not over-simplistic taskmaster, keeping you on top of your to-dos so you don’t miss out on anything.

SeizeTheDay is free and so easy to use that your 84-year-old great aunt could be up and running on the fly, organizing her Mah-Jong games in no time. The interface is simple and well designed, allowing you to seamlessly add a task and rate it by priority: high, medium or low. After you select a date for your task, you may then add individual or daily reminders (this lists all of the day’s items). If you’d like to take it even a step further, you can also add an audible reminder.

Since this app takes a pretty basic approach to organizing your tasks, SeizeTheDay would be the perfect fit for someone who’s looking to stay organized with general tasks and who doesn’t want to get bogged down with all the bells and whistles that a more complex app like 2Do offers. Here, you get the bare bones of a task-management program and it delivers what’s promised. Many will even like the fact that task mastering becomes, dare I say, simple.

But, if you’re looking for an app that can offer you more than just the basic functions of keeping tasks together in an organized manner, as in you’re seeking the ability to have multiple reminders, recurring daily or weekly tasks, a bill-payment indicator or the ability to sync to the iPhone calendar, you may want to look elsewhere.

However, if you need to stay on top of your game and aren’t looking to fork over a lot of cash (or any for that matter), you might have just found the app that will keep you in the know of your own crazed day-to-day life. And for that, you need no reminder.
