App of the day: Any.do for Chrome

Any.do is a task organizer with a very clean design. Any.do is a winner of Apple’s 2012 “intuitive touch”, and Android best app 2012, for its clean & simple to use design and innovative features. It syncs information between your computer and mobile devices, so you have your to-do list with you all the time.

We live in exciting times. Our day-to-day is filled with more possibility and promise than ever before, and we simply experience more life in every moment.

As our worlds become fuller, the struggle is not to manage one’s life but instead to derive more happiness from it.

Email, Calendar, Tasks, Notes – are not mundane tools. They’re the lenses through which we focus our lives. At their simplest, they make us more efficient. At their greatest, they create a fluidity that completely changes how we see and interact with the world. That spectrum of possibility excites us here at Any.do, and we’re working to push its upper bound even further.We believe there is an untapped richness to the everyday, and we are the company that builds the apps that bridge people to it.

Productivity through play. Control through balance. Good day, every day.

The message from Any.do Team is so beautiful and inspiring that I had to share it. Don’t we often take the work too seriously? Don’t we get so overwhelmed with the fast rhythm of life and everyday tasks that we forget to savor the moment and enjoy what we do. I know that for me calmness comes from control, from knowing my path, knowing what I have to do and enjoying the sense of accomplishment when tasks that seemed scary and impossible at first, are done. And after they’re done, I know that I’ve learned and grown so much by not giving up and standing up for the challenges.

Any.do is available for iOS, Android and Chrome. I’m going to walk you through the desktop version available through Chrome Web Store.

This is what you see when you open Any.do from your computer. You can drag and drop tasks to form the agenda. I love the ‘Someday’ option 🙂 Don’t we all have the things we need to do, which we postpone to ‘someday’? Well, seeing them in your schedule everyday makes you want to get them done and out of your sight. Search and delete options are also available. This is the Time View.

Here is the Folder View. It is useful when you want to separate personal tasks from work ones, or if you’re working on a specific project and want to see all completed and new tasks in one place.

This is a New Task window. You have the option to select the Folder, the due date, set a reminder, urgency and recurrence. You can also add notes, create sub-tasks and add attachments.

This is the Settings pop-up menu. You have the option to turn on/off the desktop notifications and that’s basically it.
