Stylish Android To-Do App Any.DO Comes to iOS and Chrome

Posted by Carter Dotson on June 6th, 2012
+ Universal & Apple Watch App - Designed for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch

Here’s something you don’t hear about every day. Any.DO is a stylish to-do app, similar to Clear in that it’s simple, but has some more advanced features. Users add tasks to the app, and can be notified at a specific time to complete them. The app even allows users to use their built-in speech-to-text service to record their task list entries.

Maybe you have seen this kind of app before. But here’s the crazy thing: this app was originally released on Android, and has been brought to iOS and Chrome. Yes, it was in this same form – it’s still one of the better-designed apps for Android, and it is a standout on iOS. This big update for the app not only brings it to iOS along with Chrome, but it also brings synchronization to the app. By logging in with either Facebook or a proprietary account, users can sync up their to-do lists between all 3 platforms. Best part? Any.DO is free to download, a small price to pay for the diehard iOS fan who may have trouble stomaching the rare Android-to-iOS port.

Caylus has all the trappings of a deep iOS board game, assuming complexity isn't a problem.

To-Do List App, Clear, Looks Nice

Posted by Phillip Levin on January 30th, 2012

Realmac Software updated its website this week with a page devoted to its newest app, Clear. The company’s page on the app doesn’t contain a lot of information yet. All we know is that the app is “coming soon,” and thanks to a teaser trailer on the site, the developer has produced one slick-looking app.

Clear is a to-do list app, and it looks to fill a much-needed hole on the App Store, in my opinion. Indeed, despite there being tremendous innovation in app development, I feel this is one area that app developers haven’t really nailed. For whatever reason, I’ve yet to fall in love with any tasking app I’ve tried. But it looks like Clear has a fair shot at being the very thing I’m looking for.

As said before, there’s little information on the app yet. Just a teaser trailer to go by. But I like what I see. First off, Clear has a very clean, color-themed interface. The minimalist approach appears to make entering and sorting through tasks effortless. The teaser shows a guy in a coffee shop, browsing through tasks like “buy groceries” and “pick up dry cleaning.” Each task is represented by different shades of orange. Users can create a new task by expanding space in between tasks, allowing quick organization. Simply tapping on a task allows users to edit it, while swiping one turns it the color green, marking it as completed and thereby deleting it.

Most of the video shows the guy entering new tasks and deleting old ones, but it also offers a quick glimpse of what appears to be a category system. The actor in the video has a setup including a “Things to Do,” “Shopping List” and “Movies to Watch.” So, even though the app appears to be minimalist in its design, Realmac Software hasn’t left out important functionality like this.

No word yet on a price point – or an exact release date yet – but I can’t wait to download this one.

Check out the trailer below.

Wicket - The Beginning has all the trappings of a clever rpg-lite inspired task management game. Save the lack of any real point, that is.

EpicWin makes mundane tasks feel like... slightly less mundane tasks. Just don't get burned out from adding minute tasks to level up. The goal is to actually live your life.

TapDo Review

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Our rating: starstarhalfstarblankstarblankstar :: TASK MANAGER
TapDo does quite a bit right, but it still lacks an easy way to customize and some much needed feature additions. With some love, TapDo can be great.
