    I have an iPhone, and while I really like the selection of apps for the iOS listed, I’m not too sure about Checkmark and The Meeting App apps. Checkmark tends to crash a lot for being something that I pay for. I would rather use ( or Priority Matrix ( The Meeting App seems kind of pricey for an app, and the only review it has says that it has no calendar sync and that the reviewer wants a refund.

    Thanks for the feedback! Sometimes new apps don’t stack up against the app we’re already using. I love Thanks for Priority Matrix. Can’t wait to try it!
