App Spotlight: Any.DO



With Thanksgiving coming, it is important to be able to keep track of all the things that need to be done. Put in some proper prep work and your Thanksgiving doesn’t need to be as chaotic as the ones of yesteryear. To help keep your family on track you can try many things. Giving everyone grocery or to-do lists, setting times as to when things need to get done, and so on. Another option is to write it all down in a task manager app that shares the all-inclusive to-do list with the entire family, like Any.DO.

Any.DO is a task-management app that helps the user sync up with a large group of people to help get things done and quickly. So while mom is using the list at the grocery store to grab that last turkey for sale, dad can be using that same list to check off the yard work that needs to get done before the guests arrive. Once a task is complete, the user swipes the task and everyone who has the list will see that the job has been done, and will be able to move on to the next thing. It allows for quicker communication then waiting for a text to reach the recipient or hoping that they will hear their phone ringing over the hub bub in the crowded grocery. Once the entire list is completed, all a user needs to do is shake the screen and all the tasks disappear.

The app also allows for quick additions to the list. For instance, say while prepping the food, one of the cooks discovers that they need another bag of potatoes. All they have to do is use the voice recognition in the app and say what they need. The app will do the rest.

Users also have use of the rudimentary things that task-managers afford such as set due dates, comprehensive sorting, and the ability to add notes to the tasks that still need to be completed. It syncs with other task-managers, and has the ability to save to-do lists in the user’s email inbox. Therefore, This Thanksgiving download a task-manager like Any.DO, and spend more time with your family and less time in the grocery store.
