Title: Finish
Platform: iOS 5 or later
Cost:.99

The Finish app was developed by teens who were looking for a way to help themselves and their friends manage their time. It's an easy to use and useful to do list app. One of the best features is the ability to set timeframes for short term, mid term, and long term tasks. That way users can easily see what's due in the very near future and when it might be OK to let a little procrastination set in. Check out the screencast to get an overview of how the app works.



Finish is a great app for teens and library staff. Teens who are trying to keep track of everything from chores to homework to when the next title in a favorite series or by a favorite author is coming out will find it very useful. Library staff can use Finish for everything from keeping track of their schedule for TAB meetings to keeping track of supplies needed for the next scheduled TAB event.

It's also a great example of what teens can do as app builders and developers and might inspire teens you work with to try their hands at something similar. The 99 cent price tag won't break the bank and could be just what you need, or what teens you know need, to keep with all sorts of tasks and activities.
