We continue with our task manager special, ideal for all those who have set themselves proposals to be more productive this year. Today we are going to see Workflowy , a task manager that stands out for being one of the simplest and easiest to use but at the same time hides a lot of flexibility.
It’s a pity, but Workflowy is not very popular in its sector.

In any case, it is an excellent tool that will do more than one person a favor in any way. And of course, all this simplicity and flexibility is mirrored in the mobile interfaces of the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.
