'Itemz' is a unique task organization and management tool that challenges users to earn trophies and level up over time. Those who choose to "play" with this gamified format have the chance to choose an avatar and begin their tasks solo or invite friends, colleagues or team members to work together for more motivation towards a common goal. While there is a collaborative aspect to Itemz, it is also highly competitive, as users are able to compare their progress to others.

Itemz is also highly customizable and allows users to set up email or app notifications about a particular task or project.

This tool is free for up to three projects with three people, with different tiers of pro plans available that offer more file space, project space in inbox and people per project. Itemz could be of use for a range of individuals from students to professionals who are working on a time-sensitive project.
