I think my new favorite application is going to be Do It (Tomorrow), from Adylitica. It’s ultra-simple task management, with a snazzy interface. You’re only putting in your tasks for today, and then you have the ability to postpone them to the next day. It’s available as a web application at http://tomorrow.do, and there’s a paid version for the iPhone/iPad (only $1.99!) that allows you to sync with the web app. Free versions of the app are also available for iPhone (without sync) and Android.
I’ve been on the lookout for something like this, with the following features:
- Super-simple to add tasks
- Sync between a web interface or a Mac thick client, and iPhone and iPad
- Re-order task list
- Postpone tasks manually
- Automatically roll over incomplete tasks to the next day
- Give me a way to search for completed tasks by date range
I’ve tried a number of solutions, never really found one that felt right for me — either too many bells and whistles, or a clunky interface, or missing a web interface or a mobile app. In just a few minutes with Do It (Tomorrow), it looks like they cover the first four features on my wish list. I’ll know tomorrow if they handle #5 on the list. Doesn’t look like #6 is possible at this point. But for a measly $1.99, to get the first four features? Gimme!
The design of the web application is really beautiful, too, see below with my tasks for tomorrow blurred out so you don’t have to read what I’m doing for work tomorrow. It looks like a Moleskine notebook, and the font is a simple handwriting font. They even add the obligatory coffee stain image!
You and Vegas have a very similar To Do list; minus that whole bills and deck thing.
So…. watering the grass. Great. I can cross it off my list, since he’ll take care of it for me!
Thanks so much for your recommendation … I have been looking for such an app for my iPhone & believe you have finally pointed me in the right direction!
Great! Glad that it was helpful. I’ve been using it for about 24 hours now, and I’m really finding it to be just what the doctor ordered.
Another one that was suggested to me was WunderList (http://www.wunderlist.com/), which looks to be more full-featured and better for groups. I’m giving Do It (Tomorrow) a few more days of use before I give WunderList a try.
Sounds like a plan & keep me posted. I’m a huge list maker, but am loving being able to make them on my phone!
