Have you ever wondered at your minds capacity to store information? Amazing isn’t it? But the mind has its limitations. There’s so much information stored in all fields. But sometimes it becomes quite the task to retrieve all the information, because the human mind has its capacities too .We can’t remember everything and the tendency to forget is very common. So what do we do in that case? We start off by making lists; lists where we write down the list of activities to be done. At times the list is endless.
With the help of your Android powered mobile phones and tablets, many of your routine day-to-day tasks have become twice as easy. There’s an app for almost everything you need these days. One of the esteemed apps beloved by users on the Android platform is Any.Do – the ultimate ‘make things happen’ app.
All it requires is an Android 2.2 and up OS version to function. As soon as you launch the Any.Do app, the interface comes up with really vivid animations and has the user captivated right from the word go! These animations give you bird’s eye view of what the entire app is.
The user can make multiple lists under different folders according to their suitability. Be it from things to be done from home or office. The user can create different folders, set timings and days for their tasks. There are widgets that keep popping up on the screen reminding you of the tasks to be done. Add anything that’s on your mind. Use drag and drop to remain organised.
You can share your tasks with other contacts. Different tabs on the interface show you different pictures in the background so you can easily select from them if you happen to have forgotten anything. Once you finish a task you can simply strike it of the list by swiping across it.
You can just shake your phone and get the list cleared once all your tasks are done.
