How to organise lots of things?

Simple Surface is a unique blend of sticky note, task list and project management tools that lets you plan quickly, in a new yet familiar way

Simple Surface is fast and helps you to manage lots of things in a semi-structured environment. Especially when you’re at that initial planning stage and don't yet know about everything that you need to do.

Task lists are great for managing to-do lists, such as your shopping list.
But lists are so restrictive and ‘linear’.

Sticky notes are great for remembering things or for organising a few ideas.
But they are just notes (with glue).

Project management tools give you gantt charts and critical paths.
But is time consuming and cumbersome to use.
