It’s the first personal planning and productivity app of its kind — a productivity coach in your pocket. Momentum is here to bridge the gap between what we know we should do, and what we actually do with our time. It’s here to help you zoom from big picture goals all the way down to what you’re doing today.
Our unique system helps prevent people from overcommitting (constraints are a good thing!) and alleviating the issues of endless to-do lists that never get done. It’s also flexible enough to work with whatever life throws at you. Easily defer, archive, or rearrange projects and work blocks when reality shifts.
Momentum supports the way people work without shaming them by guiding users through best practices from productivity, positive psychology, behavioral economics, and habit formation principles. You’ll become more efficient, effective, and focused on the projects that matter most to you.
First, check out our knowledge base, where you’ll find a library of resources to help you get started. Here you can learn more about our Momentum Planning method, see overviews of each of the five planning views (daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, and yearly), get tips on how to set up your Momentum Experience to work for you, and so much more.
But the best way to experience Momentum and build momentum (see what we did there?) is to open the app and start adding in your projects. For this, we recommend starting with the Weekly Planner, where you can break out your tasks into project “chunks” based on the days of the week.
We consider the Weekly Planner our “Goldilocks view” — it gives you just enough of a horizon to plan against, and it’s just small enough to be manageable, allowing you to take action on your projects. From there you can get really granular in our Daily Planner, or work your way up to the Monthly, Quarterly, and Yearly views.
Momentum is web-based but adaptive to use on smartphones and tablets. Larger screens are better for “planning” mode, where you can easily toggle between viewpoints, easily type information in, and customize your settings, while smaller screens are better for ticking off completed tasks, deferring, archiving, or deleting items, or used as a way to quickly pull up the day’s events while you’re on the go.
Right now, users can sync Momentum with their Google Calendar. We'll add iCal, Microsoft Outlook, and more over time. You'll never need to copy tasks or events between Momentum and your Google Calendar. Create an event in Momentum, and whether it's a time block to do a specific task, a meeting with your boss, or fishing at the lake, that same event will automatically show up on your calendar. And vice versa.
We want our users to be our customers — not advertisers, third parties, or investors. And since Momentum’s purpose is to help you focus on what matters, in a place without distractions, ads and sponsorships don’t really align with one of the app’s key jobs.
