This is one of my most favorite apps for keeping up with the daily tasks. Imagine you find out that you have an appointment in a month from now. I don’t know about you, but for me personally it would be pretty much impossible to remember it without some kind of a memory aid and this is where 2do apps come to play.
Using the app is a piece of cake. Open it up> Create new task> Set reminder> Go on with your life. Once the task’s date and time is reached the app will cause your phone to vibrate and push a notification to the screen. From there you can either select “Complete” or “Snooze” which will snooze the reminder like an alarm clock.
The main page of the app displays all of the planned tasks. You can put them in different categories and set recurring events (if you take daily medication for example).
2do is able to juggle mutliple overlapping tasks quite well. For example, if you set multiple tasks with reminders on the same date and time it will still do a push notification for each of the tasks that way you don’t lose track of them.
In this regard, the app is ideal for managing many small daily tasks as well as long term reminders such as those that are multiple months ahead. The design is very intuitive and setting up a task can be done within seconds as opposed to perhaps a minute it takes for other apps to do this.
The few reasons why I don’t give this app a 5 star rating is because I dislike their support approach. Joining the forum and asking questions is a headache and it seems like they’ve never heard of human verification questions and prefer to manually approve each new member which may take a while. The person in charge of answering messages always appears to be a in a bad mood. Also, if you’re an Android user, the device has a lot of limitations since it has only recently became available for Android devices, so consider yourself lucky if you’re using iPhone.
The App is not free, it costs $9.99, but it is definitely worth the small investment. So throw the tiny ribbons you used to tie around your fingers and get yourself the 2do app instead!
Thanks for reading.
