When choosing a to-do app list, don’t go with an ‘Any one will do’ attitude – try the Any.DO approach!
It’s a clean interface, with few visible buttons. You can simply pull the list down to create a new entry; if you pull down quickly, you get a typing interface, but if you pull for a bit longer, you can dictate your to-do. It’s then added to the list, which you can reorder by tapping and holding on an entry, then dragging. To cross an entry off, swipe your finger through it.
But Any.DO can do a bit more than just show you a list. For a start, you can arrange your list by time or by ‘Folder’ – ‘Work’ and ‘Personal’ are the default entries. Tap on a to-do and you bring up more options.
As is so often the way, though, it’s not perfect. The reminders part is a bit too easy to miss; it goes off once, and if your phone is on silent, you might well miss it. It’s also a shame that it doesn’t offer location-based reminders.
