Edited, March 15: Swipes is already available for download in Google Play Store
We are very excited to announce that Swipes is out for Android OS, starting March 15th, with a Final Beta available now.
The award-winning task manager, recognized as Best New Startup of 2014 by Evernote, is expanding into the Android community, with the promise to help high achievers on their road to success.
For those of you, who are stumbling upon Swipes for the first time, we would like to say:
Get ready to stop stressing out, staring at that huge list of tasks, and focus on the ones that require your immediate attention. Based on gestures and smart integrations, the app gives you the fastest way to organize your long list of commitments into priorities, scheduled events and completed tasks.
At Swipes, we work on translating proven productivity concepts (GTD, Inbox Zero) into intuitive design, providing our users with the opportunity to learn how to organize their time more efficiently without even consciously thinking about it.

Here at Swipes, we are not fond of compromises on quality and Swipes for Android sticks to that principle.
