2Do Task Management App Updated


2Do icon

If you are looking for an all in one task management app that has a Calendar, List maker, notifier, project manager, and more, 2Do may be for you. The iOS version of the app is standalone but can work and sync with the separate Mac version via Dropbox, Toodledo, and iCal CalDav Server.

From the developer:

2Do lets you take a completely different approach to managing your tasks. With its extremely simple-to-use interface and a comprehensive and flexible set of powerful features, it lets you focus on what’s most important to you: your life. There is no wrong way of using 2Do, and unlike other to-do apps, it won’t force you in adhering to a particular task management methodology.

The developer even describes a way to add reminders to 2Do via Siri.

If you have 2Do setup to sync with iCloud (2Do->Settings->Sync->Sync Method->Calendar Server (CalDAV)->iCloud), you will in effect be able to sync with the Reminders app. To create a reminder in 2Do using Siri you essentially:

  1. Create a reminder using Siri e.g. “Remind me to leave a review on iTunes for 2Do at noon today”
  2. Launch 2Do and tap Sync
  3. Voila. Your newly created task using Siri will now appear in 2Do

If you’ve got multiple calendars (Home, Work, Someday etc) and wish to decide where to create the reminder when using Siri, simply instruct “Add this to my ‘Work’ list’ when it asks you to confirm (i.e. when it says “Here’s your reminder… Shall I create it?”)

 So, if you have been thinking about a task management program to help organize your life and projects, consider this one.
