7 great Android apps for notes and tasks

From day one, Android has provided a number of applications to help users stay more organized. We bought these expensive devices to keep us on track; it's a smartphone, so we expect it to do things we can't always remember to do.

Thanks to the beauty of the Google Play store, there are new and much more sophisticated tools popping up on a regular basis. But with so many to choose from, how does one get started?

Catch Notes and Astrid are popular apps for managing such needs, but with the future of both services in the air (… Read more

Review: Any.DO is a wonderfully designed to-do list alternative for your iOS device

Any.DO is one of the most attractive to-do list apps we've seen in a long time, and it works as well as it looks. With Any.DO's stylish swipe function and very streamlined menus, it is a joy to use, organizing your information in an intuitive way and making adding new things quick and easy.

From the moment you start Any.DO you'll be given step-by-step directions on how to use the app, but it is intuitive enough that you'll rarely need them. On any screen, swipe down to enter a new to-do item. No … Read more

Getting started with Cal, the Any.Do calendar app

Popular iPhone to-do list app Any.Do received a companion calendar app today, a free app called, appropriately, Cal. The Cal app is pretty to look at and slick in operation, but it creates a bit of a bifurcated experience, as some entries can be created in the Cal app, while others require it to boot you out to the to-do list app. I think it'd be easier if the two apps become one.

At any rate, the Cal app syncs with the Any.Do to-do list app and it can also pull in info from your phone's … Read more

Manage to-dos with these four Android apps

But with its recent acquisition by Yahoo and the news that it will officially be going away on August 5, fans of the app are likely looking for alternatives. With that in mind, I've put together a list of four of my favorite to-do managers for Android. In some ways they may even outdo the popular Astrid, but feel free to tell us in the comments how you think they stack up.

Getting started with Any.DO Moment for Android

In the older version of Any.Do you had to schedule each task on your list individually. While this was effective in the sense that it set off notifications, it wasn't efficient. Luckily, the new Any.Do Moment feature creates a path between listing your tasks and getting things done by helping you plan out your day.

Before you get started, make sure you have the latest version of Any.Do installed on your device. You'll probably see an update, but if not, head to Google Play and grab the latest version.

Keep it simple with Any.Do

When you first install Any.Do, you can choose to log in, create a new account (for syncing across devices), or get started without one. Once you make your choice, getting started is as easy as typing out your to-dos, or with the built-in voice input feature, saying them.

The main page of Any.Do splits tasks into four categories: Today, Tomorrow, This Week, and Later. To move an item between categories, simply tap and hold, then drag. To mark tasks as complete, simply cross it out. A quick tap on any item brings up a menu of options that … Read more
