If you need a task manager to get things done, this may just fit the bill
Todo is a task manager that leans heavily on the Getting Things Done methodology and allows you to sync with its iOS equivalents on your iPhone or iPad.
If you’ve used the iOS version, you’ll be instantly familiar with how it works; Todo is an accomplished task manager. You can create lists of tasks; split those tasks into sub-tasks – each with its own deadline; and create custom contexts, such as ‘at my desk’ or ‘in the garden’.
You can set reminder alerts, schedule repeating tasks, and add notes. Tasks can be starred to indicate they are high priority and starred tasks get their own list. Likewise, you can create a custom Focus list of tasks and sub-tasks on which you need to concentrate on a given day. There’s no default ‘Today’ list of tasks due for completion, like the one in Things, however.
There are a number of options for syncing, including iCloud, Dropbox, ToodleDo, and Todo Cloud, AppiGo’s own solution. While the third-party options allow you to sync between devices, if you want to access Todo’s powerful collaboration and sharing features, you’ll need to use the free Todo Cloud app instead and sign up for a premium subscription.
Todo’s price tag of £10.49 is less than a third of Things, so charging extra for collaborative features is reasonable. But requiring the use of a separate app – to which you can’t import data from Todo – isn’t. Worse, you can only create a new Todo Cloud account on an iOS device.
Todo looks great, it’s inexpensive and it’s not hard to use. If you’re not wedded to GTD, however, you might find a combination of Reminders and Calendar works just as well for you. If you need the collaboration features, Todo Cloud is a separate, pricier proposition. Kenny Hemphill
An attractive and powerful task manager, but the distinction between Todo and Todo Cloud is very confusing.
