Finish (http://getfinish.com), the Apple Design Award (http://www.macrumors.com/2013/06/10/apple-announces-2013-design-awards-winning-apps-include-letterpress-and-evernote/)-winning to-do app created by a pair of 16-year-old developers, has today received a significant update that adds a host of new features that were requested by users, including a much desired Task-by-Task time setting option that allows users to set times for tasks.

In addition, version 2.0 of the app allows users to add notes to tasks, activate a "Bother Me" reminder function, quick-add tasks, and share tasks via email. It also includes a "Rewards" function that allows users to earn real life rewards for completed tasks.REWARDS: As you complete your tasks, you'll have the option to earn free, real-life rewards. You'll never know for sure when you'll receive rewards-though let's just say, the earlier you finish your stuff, the better ;). Rewards are constantly changing. They could be anything from productivity tools, coupons,yummy snacks, gift cards, discounts, and more. Keep an eye out for stuff from your favorite brands, and enjoy another huge weapon against procrastination.The app has been redesigned with both visual and interface enhancements and other new features include task restore abilities and data export options.

Finish (http://appshopper.com/productivity/finish-for-iphone-timeframe-focused-todo-list) can be downloaded from the App Store for $0.99. [Direct Link (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/finish./id558559470?mt=8)]

What is the deal with this app? It is a pretty good app....no doubt. But this site, 9to5, iMore...all running stories about it.

Obviously we don't see similar stories for every other GTD app. What is so special about this one?

It won an Apple Design Award. I'd also classify it more of a to-do/task management app than a calendar app.

Why is it tasks can only be repeated once? I would like to make a task that has to be done every week. With or without a due date.

I have a feeling it has to do with the fact it has won awards and it was designed by two 16 year old kids.
