With sadness, today, we retired the our wedding note application. Thank you for the hundreds of users who have used it and we hoped it helped you plan and organize your wedding! It was a fun application to create as one of our team members had gotten married and thought it would be useful for the world.

We are very excited to announce the worldwide launch of Teem, our new personal and collaborative to-do list app.
Our goal at Teem is simplicity. You have enough on your plate worrying about managing your daily tasks. You should not have to worry about also managing your to-do list app.
What is Teem?
Teem is the only to-do list app you will need. It is on one hand the simplest personal to-do list app available. Use Teem to organize and track your own personal productivity, whether that includes event planning, scheduling your work or school week, planning travel itineraries, or simply sorting your myriad daily chores. Accomplish these tasks with the cleanest, no-fuss interface you will find.
On the other hand, Teem is a useful shared to-do list app. You can use Teem to manage collaborative projects between your friends or co-workers. Planning a trip with friends? Create a list, share with your teemmates, and quickly divide and conquer the responsibilities. Important company project? Create a list, share with your teemmates, and track the progress of each item. This sharing process will help increase productivity and eliminate confusion.
What are Teem’s Functions and Uses?
· An intuitive interface to easily create and manage tasks
. Invite friends and co-workers to be your “teemmates”
. Share lists with any number of teemmates or assign individual tasks
. Email tasks and lists
. Set due dates and reminders
. Keep a history of task activities and add comments so everyone is on the same page
. Use filters to quickly view who’s doing what, what’s done and what’s new
. All data is backed up and stored in the “cloud”
. Push notifications and background updates so you’re always in sync
Where Can I Find Teem?
Teem is available for download on the Apple App Store today! You can download here: http://bit.ly/teem_io
The main goal in task management is clear: Is this task done or not? Teem is all about cutting through the fluff to answer that question.
Download Teem and start organizing your life now.

The Project Management Professional (PMP) examination has undergone major revisions, and the new exam was implemented on August 31, 2011.
How has the exam changed?
About 30% of the content on the PMP exam is new or has been substantially changed.
In particular, the Professional and Social Responsibility content area (Domain 6) will now be tested in every domain on the examination, rather than as a separate domain. The RDS has shown that Professional and Social Responsibility is an important aspect to ALL the work of project management. Thus, the Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct will be tested as an integrated part of a project manager’s role. Questions will have a greater focus on the ethical considerations and professional responsibility involved in daily project management tasks.
What is new about XZAMS PMP Prep?
The XZAMS – PMP Prep application has been updated and available to download to correspond with these changes. We have developed new test questions that will reflect the greater, more integrated ethical emphasis of the revised PMP exam. There are 500+ questions, answers and explanations available on the latest update.
To download the updated app, please visit: http://bit.ly/xzams-pmp-update
For more information about the new PMP exam, please visit the PMI website (specific info about the changes can be found here: http://bit.ly/b5kWcU). You can also read the PMP Examination Content Online Handbook for a detailed overview of the revised exam (http://bit.ly/pYIXxs).

Select the task from the To Do List by tapping on the item.
This will open up the Edit screen, where you have the option to edit the title of the item, add a note, assign a due date, or mark the item as “Completed”.
You can also do some manipulation of the task by swiping the item. Swiping the item brings up the following options (within the To Do List screen). You can delete the item, change the due date, email the item, or mark the item as “Complete.”
Select the task from the To Do List by tapping on the item.
This will open up the Edit screen, where you have the option to assign a due date to your item. Tap on the “Due” field.

From the Edit screen, press the “To Do” button to return to your list.
You will see that a sticky has been posted next to the item, indicating how long before the task is due.
There are a few ways you can mark an item as “Completed.” You can start by tapping on your item from your To Do List.
This will bring you to an Edit screen. You can mark your item as “Completed” by tapping the red “Mark Completed” button.
You can also mark an item as “Completed” by swiping the item from your To Do List. Swiping the item will bring up a number of options and buttons, including a red “Complete” button. Tap this button to mark your item as “Completed.”
Once you have marked your item as “Completed,” it gets taken off the To Do List and moved to the Complete List. To access this list, touch the “Complete” tab at top.
Items are listed under Completed Tasks with a sticky attached, indicating when the item was marked as “Completed”.
You can swipe the completed task to reveal two options. From here, you can either permanently delete the item (the trash can icon), or restore it to the To Do List (the circular arrow).
From the Completed Tasks List, you can also purge your completed items. To do this, touch the “Purge” button at top. This will generate a pop-up, asking you to confirm the permanent deletion of the item.
You can manually re-order items right from your To Do List. Simply keep pressing down on an item. Long-pressing will cause the list to enter an edit mode.
