Is Systematic for me?

If you’re constantly busy, working for some big evil company that you don’t even care about and you’ve long have forgotten you childhood dreams then the answer is no.

Otherwise you’re very welcome πŸ™‚

Systematic is a different type of time organiser. It doesn’t focus your attention on rigid dates, it’s meant to keep you in the loop of productivity.

It takes care of the tasks you’d like to do repeatedly, but about which you often forget/neglect.

It’s great for scheduling gym, reading, learning time, basically all of the creative aspects of life.

It was created because of our human weakness of easily getting overwhelmed and forgetful.
All you need to do is to define how much time you want to put into something on “Daily”, “Weekly”, “Monthly” or “Once” basis and it takes care of the scheduling of those tasks.
And put’s those task that are most neglected to the top of the list.

    Hi Michel Peter from NZ here.. I just bought your app for my iphone and once installed it doesn’t open?

    • It’s the first time someone reports this to me – could you tell me on what device did you try to run it? Also what iOS version does it have? Thanks

    I want to work a certain number of hours on a task. For example, I want to study 15 hours per week. Can I set that up as a task and then start a timer? I can’t figure out how to do it.

  3. 4 Cathy

    I got it…I was putting in # of times instead of hours

    • Nice! πŸ™‚ Good that you figured it out cause I was feeling like I’ve failed my mission for a minute πŸ˜€
      Have fun with Systematic! Let it help you getting around all your passions and interests. When you feel like you’re on top of it try going without it – remember, it’s only a tool πŸ™‚

    Thanks for your reply πŸ™‚ Any chance you might be optimizing the app for iPad and allowing syncing?

    Sorry about all the questions…just starting to use it πŸ™‚

    I know in the blurb up top you say that it’s not about rigid dates but is there a way to set and end date? Say I want to study for a test 10 hours a week? Can I put an end date as the day of the test and have the app show that I only have ___ days left to study?

    • Yes! That’s precisely the functionality available πŸ™‚
      Just edit the task and pick an “endline” πŸ™‚
      For daily repeats it’s an hour,
      For weekly and monthly repeats it’s a day.
      For ‘once’ type of tasks it’s a rigid date.

    Hi again πŸ™‚
    I have a question about the To Do time. Can you explain how it works? I put in that I want to do something 10 hours per week but then it says To Do: 43

    • “To do” grows as time passes to if your budget for a task is 10h per week then at the very beginning of the period your “to do” will be 0h, then after some time it’ll increase and in the middle of that period “to do” will say that you should do at least 5h to be ahead of schedule.
      Clear? πŸ™‚

    Got it, thanks πŸ™‚

  8. Hi, I like systematic, but it does not have alarm function. So I’m going to use Due to schedule launch systematic..
    Would you let me know what is the url scheme of systematic?
    I tried systematic:// in drafts app but it doesn’t seem to be working.

    Thank you.

    How can I go back and edit a previous day?

    • Currently you can only remove past logs by going into logs (long press on a task) and swiping it left. You can always add another log right now to correct it but it’ll of course land in the current cycle.

  10. 18 Cathy

    Oh ok. So if I have something I want to do once a day and I miss marking it one day I can’t go back to that day?

    • No, not really, sorry.
      I’ve always been a strong supporter of the idea that it should be less of a tracker and more of a tool for building habits.

      There’s a small loophole that you can exploit though:
      If the time is not more than (00:00 + task_time) then by manipulating the timer and marking it as done it will be logged task_time before the current time – therefore at 00:00 or earlier.

    Ok thanks for replying so fast πŸ™‚

  12. Wonderful goods from you, man. I’ve understand your stuff previous to and you’re just extremely fantastic.

    I really like what you have acquired here, really like what you are saying and the way in which you say
    it. You make it entertaining and you still care for to keep it wise.
    I can’t wait to read much more from you. This is actually a terrific website.

    I am using an ipod touch fifth generation and in systematic, as I start a task timer the font color of the task description is black with a white dropshadow which makes it hard to read considering that the app is basically black and grey all around.

    1. Could you please provide us with at least one other colour template to use instead of the black and grey. The app just looks dark in general.



  14. Hi folks! I love love Systematic, it’s really revolutionized how I organize my time. I have one question and one request:

    Question: How does Systematic decide when to place a task into the “You should do it soon” area? I find that if I wait for tasks to move there, I have some catching up to do.

    Request: I’d LOVE some sort of option that let me specify how soon a task moves into the “You should do it soon”.

    Anyway, I’m a fan. One of the best app purchases I’ve ever made.

    • Thanks for the warm words Haniff,

      Well, Systematic does that in a uniform way for all tasks, basically the more neglected the task is the more it’s being pushed to top πŸ™‚

      The exact formula takes the “percent of time left “and divides it by the “percent of task to do”, this way the less time you’ve got left and the bigger amount you’ve got left to do the smaller the number that puts the task into the right section.

      So a natural way to ‘speed up’ the task showing in “You should do it soon” is to repeat it more often or give it more time.

      Take care,

    Could you please explain again what an endline is? I can’t figure it out.
    e.g. I want to do sports three times a week, how do I set this?
    Also, the hardest part of growing a habit is remembering you wanted to do it in the first place. I think that an alarm feature is painfully missing from the app.

  16. Excellent posting. I’d been reviewing frequently this blog page for motivated! Worthwhile information and facts specifically the eventual component πŸ™‚ I handle these kinds of information a whole lot. I was interested in the following specified information for any quite a while. Appreciate it plus all the best ..

    Hi Masteranza,

    Thanks for the excellent app.

    When can we expect ios 7 redesigned app?


    • Thanks for the kind words Balaji K S.
      Redesigning the app would require a huge effort on my part which wouldn’t bring much new functionality, so I’m holding it of until the time I can do something that would really matter, that is: Siri integration.
      So far Apple haven’t introduced any such API.

    Hi, I’ve been using Systematic for quite sometime now and I love it! Unfortunately, it stopped working last night as soon as I updated to the new iOS 8.1. I tried deleting then reinstall the app, it seemed to work but after a few logs it starts crashing again to the point that you couldn’t even open the app. I think an update is necessary. Any help would be appreciated.

  19. Thanks for highlighting the issue! I’ll be working on an update in a few days.

  20. 34 Pde


    I d/l the app and started it up, but as soon as i put a task in it crashes and won’t open again. I deleted it and re-d/l but it does the samething.
    I’m using version 1.7.6 on iOS 8.1.

    If there is no updates to come in the next week, can I please get a refund?

    Is it true that there is no alert function, or did I just fail to find it?
    The biggest value of an app like this would be to actually remind me to do the stuff I keep neglecting. Without it, to me it’s useless.

    • It’s true, there’re no notifications because we consider notifications annoying.

        Well that’s why iOS and Apps offer to put a phone on vibrate or to silence the alerts. You don’t have to use them if you don’t want them.

        You basically say that you know better then most app developer out there who use notifications, and users who like them. There is a whole business around apps with smart notifications. All these people are wrong, and you are right?

    Hi. I’ve tried to figure out how set things up on this app but I can’t seem to figure it out. I can only get one entry then there’s no way to add another until the first one is done. There are absolutely no instructions that actually tell what to do. If there are great features I would like to see them so I could use them. This web site seems pointless in terms of figuring anything out about it. From what you said it seems like a great app but it’s hidden to me. Please help

  23. Hi Michael, just letting you know of a bug in the current ios 9 public beta – when pressing ‘Edit Time’ whilst trying to edit an existing task, the app crashes. Happens consistently every time. Look forward to using the app when it’s fixed though, many thanks

    • Thank you Stefan, I’ll take a look at it! Just to let you know there’s a new version pending review, but it won’t fix it – another release hopefully yes.

  24. 41 Sherry

    Hi I’m wondering if your app can be used by several kids individually on their own Apple devices in the family under the same account? Do you support apple watch? Thanks.

    Hi. I am interested in purchasing your app gudtaria but before I ask if you intend to adapt to 6s cases plus because it is my terminal. I would also like to know whether Apple is going to adapt to watch. Thank you for your attention. A greeting.

  26. 44 Park

    Do you have any plan to update this app for the latest iOS? Also how do I get notifications working?
