expand image

Bento is not your typical to-do manager. It is designed to help you focus on fewer tasks, but more meaningful ones. It limits you to only four tasks per day and encourages you to prioritize them according to their importance and urgency.

Bento also helps you track your progress and rewards you with badges and achievements. Bento is ideal for people who want to simplify their lives and avoid distractions.

Price: $3.99


  • Bento is great for focusing on a limited number of tasks and helps in doing meaningful work.
  • Bento has a minimalist and elegant design that is easy to use and navigate.
  • Bento syncs with iCloud and works across all your devices.


  • The app’s opinionated thinking means it won’t be for everyone. Some users have reported that the signup process is extremely difficult and backed by demanding staff.
  • Bento does not support subtasks, notes, reminders, or recurring tasks.
  • Bento does not integrate with other apps or services.
