Any.DO. Android. Free. Another great to do app, this time for Android users. The biggest frustration for me with to do apps is the time consuming nature of typing, setting alarms and managing the app themselves. Any.DO resolves much of this frustration with gestures and voice input. Add tasks by voice, manage them with simple gestures, and use its predictive features to instantly add common tasks to your to-do list. Tap the microphone and tell the app what you need to get done. Shake the device to clear completed tasks and swipe a task to mark it done. Reminders, notes, sorting, invite others to work with you on a task, with notifications when shared tasks are updated. Sync with Google Tasks right now, or wait for the app to open sharing up with other popular GTD applications. Customize the look with either black or white screens. It’s free and it’s great - add check out Any.DO to your to do list.
Orchestra To Do. iPhone. Free. There is a Reminders app that now comes standard in the iPhone iOS, but maybe you are looking for something more. Free Orchestra To Do offers a lot of cool features in the to do list category but adds collaboration into the mix too. Of course, there are reminders and recurring tasks, but how about real-time Cloud sync and voice capture for adding tasks instead of typing? Then there is the feature that allows you to connect with colleagues, family and friends, even if they don’t rock the Orchestra app. Chat with your collaborators from inside a task, share an entire list and get real-time status updates. And, like my favorite note taking app, SimpleNote, I can access my tasks from any computer on the Web, even if I don’t have my phone with me. Check this one out!
Orchestra is great tool for couples, families and small teams as well as individuals. Get started by setting recurring reminders to pay bills and remember birthdays. Make grocery and chore lists and share them with your spouse or roommate to divide and conquer. Plan an event - a wedding, a potluck dinner or a vacation. Staying organized has never been so easy.
