Gone are the days that you dealt with to-do lists on physical paper. Since our phones are always on us, worries of misplacing our lists are in the past. But getting organized is still a daunting task. Here’s several apps to make your life easier. Most importantly, they’re all free!
Remember the Milk is both simple and powerful, all in one go. Sync from Google Calendar, Evernote, Twitter, and more to one device. You can organize and prioritize your tasks, and add colored labels if that’s your type of thing. Share your lists with others to collaborate. Set email, text, or other forms of reminders when a task is due! This app is available for both iOS and Android.
Wunderlist is an utilitarian to-do list app that does just what you need it to. You can categorize your tasks into separate lists, add due dates with optional reminders, and share with others. It’s a beautifully smooth way to organize your life. You can download this app on iOS and Android.
Any.do provides a to-do list and a calendar all in one. You can plan out your tasks far out in advance, and view them as a regular list, or flip through them like a calendar. Your Any.do data can be synced across mobile and desktop devices, and shared with others. Find this app for iOS and Android.
Evernote seems to constantly be mentioned when it comes to productivity, and there’s a reason for that. Create notebooks with subpages for lists, and drop images and links when needed. Tag and search your notes easily, and share with the touch of a button. Evernote is designed for both mobile and desktop platforms, so the interface is smooth and refined for both iOS and Android.
Google Keep is very similar to Evernote, so which one you use is a matter of design preference. As part of the Google family, it’s easily integrated into a Google-based life on the internet. This app also allows free location-based reminders, which are often part of a paid package on other apps. However, it doesn’t allow for reoccurring tasks, which some users may find to be crucial. Download Google Keep on iOS and Android.
Microsoft OneNote is provided free by Etown as part of Office 365. This is a powerful tool that allows you to create notebooks as simple or as intricate as you desire. Organize your notes into different pages and subpages. Color-code your projects. Add images, links, and lists with boxes to check wherever you want. Since everyone at Etown has access to OneNote, it makes it incredibly simple to collaborate with others. Use OneNote on your desktop, and for iOS and Android.
