Strike offers a simple task management tool that can work for the right user. What makes it so appealing is both the basic layout and flexible simplicity. The site allows the user to create a task that can be for any project or undertaking. The user adds the item and can update their lists quickly. Once a task is complete, removing it is even easier. Overall Strike offers a tool that can help may users gain better control over their projects and schedules.
The look of Strike is another benefit to using this application. The homepage features a light wood floor background that gives the site a clean, welcoming appearance. A white box at the center presents the user with the tools they need to get started. The to do lists feature each item as it was entered with an empty box to the left of it. When the user completes the task, they can click the box to check that item off. This places a check mark in the box and a strikeout line across the item. It is simple, but certainly effective.
A new user is not required to log in when they arrive on the Strike homepage for the first time. To begin using the application, the user can enter their first task list name in the field presented at the center of the homepage (this is the only data entry field that appears when the user first arrives). After clicking the light blue “Create a List” button to the right, the user is taken to their to do list. The name of the list appears at the top of the box with a smaller URL just below that allows the user to share their list with others when collaborating on a project. From there, the user can enter each task and add it to the list.
Strike gives users access to its basic features for free. The user is not required to log in to begin creating a to do list. A premium paid membership option is available. No information has been provided regarding what features will be included or how much it will cost. The user can sign up to receive an invitation to the private release of the premium version.
