My friend and former podcasting partner in crime, Ben Brooks, collaborated with Kyle Rosenbluth to make a to-do list app for the iPhone.

Since I live and breath inside of OmniFocus, Begin hasn’t become my new to-do list app. But that doesn’t mean I’m blind to a cool idea and a nice design when I see one — and Begin is both of those.

It’s simple, fast, and gesture driven. If you like the premise and simplicity of the Bullet Journal method, then Begin might be just the app for you. And gosh, it’s just a buck on the app store.
