Any.DO – born and raised by a procrastinator
Founded in 2010, Any.DO has become a popular free app that is centered on increasing your productivity so you have more time to have fun and enjoy life. The motivation and inspiration for this app was the one of the founder’s own problems with procrastination.
But Any.DO isn’t just about increasing your productivity. It’s also about simplifying tasks so you can check more items off your to-do list quickly and efficiently. In its most basic form, Any.DO is a great, simple way to organize the everyday things you accomplish or you want to accomplish.
While Any.DO may seem like an ordinary, dime-a-dozen productivity or to-do list app, it has some fantastically unique features. “Any.DO puts the power in your hands – Drag & drop to plan your agenda, swipe off a task to mark it as complete & shake your iPhone to clear your completed tasks. It just feels right.” If you want to take it one step further, you can even add notes and reminders into your Any.DO lists.
Any.DO can be used on your iPhone, Android, or through Chrome, and the great thing is that it syncs across all of your devices, so you never have to worry about lost data or a non-updated task list.
Top features boost productivity
Another great feature of the Any.DO app is that you can save yourself some time and energy by using the microphone to record your tasks. It will automatically convert everything you say into readable text. Or, if you prefer to type rather than speak your commands or entries, Any.Do can also predict what you want to add as you type. Again, these simple-to-use features can ultimately save you valuable time out of your busy day.
Any.DO also allows users to share to-do lists with anyone, from coworkers to family members. If you’re working with some coworkers, for instance, you can create a shared list for a project. Once someone completes a task, everyone on the team will be able to see it and move onto the next task. No longer will you start on a project that someone else has already completed. In the work environment, Any.DO has created that much-needed efficiency to keep an office running smoothly.
While the modern version of Any.DO is relatively new, it is steadily gaining steam. In 2011, it was listed as one of the top ten Android apps by the NY Times and in PC Magazine, it was listed as the “must have Android app.” While that’s impressive, they’re sure to continue to be in the news in the future. Any.DO builds the bridges between collaboration, efficiency, and productivity and gives you the power to control your work day.
