Any.DO – Stay On Top of To-Dos

Online task managers are a dime a dozen these days, but Any.DO still manages to stand out from the pack by being one of the sleekest and most versatile task managers on the market. Available through the web, Chrome, iPhone, and Android, Any.DO provides users with an easy way to keep track of all the things they need to accomplish each day.

The to-do lists you’ve jotted down on notepads and Post-it notes are totally useless if you lose those papers or accidentally leave them at home, just as any to-do lists you create and save on your desktop will be useless when you’re on the road or away from your desk. Any.DO is a task management application that you can access from your computer or mobile phone at any time. Sign in through Facebook or enter your email address to begin. When you use Any.DO on your computer, you can manually add tasks, set priority levels, and add reminders so you’ll never forget to mail a birthday card or pick up your son from school. Each task you type in should be added to one of Any.DO’s ready-made folders, which are helpfully set up as Today, Tomorrow, This Week, and Later.

Any.DO’s usefulness quotient goes up exponentially when you download the mobile application for iPhones or Android devices. The service’s mobile apps offer all the same features available on the web-based interface, but with the extra bonus of voice scheduling and various sharing capabilities.
