    Hi, I own a very small printing biz and BADLY need an app that will help me keep track of my orders and visually show me the status of each job. I have tried many different apps and none - so far - fit the bill.

    Basically, I would like to be able to enter a name for the order and generate the fixed set of tasks needed. For instance, if I made a new order called "Dixon South Baseball" my phone/tablet would make an icon for that order and generate a standard task list (created by me and editable) with items like "design", "order materials", "print", "invoice", and "paid". I could check each task off for each order as it was completed.

    The app would also give several views for the orders like "show orders marked 'order materials'." I am extremely visual so a clickable grid with the orders would be super. If I could add notes and reference contacts it would be even better.

    Any ideas? I'm willing to pay a lot (to me) -- couple hundred bucks -- if it works like I need it to. Everything I have tried so far requires me to either manually enter all the task names for each order, or it doesn't show me the status of the order in a summary screen.

    THANKS!

    It sounds like you need a custom app made but since I don't have a clue as to how to write them I can't help with that. Did you try the Google tasks in Gmail? I have mine running with Astrid and for simple things it works well - don't know how much more in depth it can go though since I haven't needed to try.

    Good luck!
