So, I’m the kind of person who has to write down almost every single task of their day for fear of forgetting something. While I use a daily planner and check it almost every hour, some things do slip between the cracks and get forgotten about.. until I found the Any.Do app for my phone. This free app is available for androids, iOS, and those with the Chrome browser by Google. The Any.Do app helps you remember everything you have to do and makes it happen by featuring an alarm for notifications, attaching notes to the reminders, prioritize the task, and organize them into folders. The app also features a share option for you to share the task with your contacts.
As a freelance writer for Baptist Memorial Health Care Corporation in Memphis, Tenn., I must contact physicians or hospital staff members of the hospitals. However, I must also work with their schedule in order to speak with them when they are available. This app comes in hand when I have a specific time that I must call them at. For instance, a few weeks ago, one of the contacts was only free from 1:30 p.m. until 2:15 p.m. and I had class until 1:50 p.m. Had I not set a reminder with the task, I would have easily forgotten to contact her and missed a deadline.
What I love most about this app is the reminders and if your task from tomorrow needs to be moved to today, all you have to do is drag & drop it into that day’s list.
The app’s default view offers an at-a-glance agenda, displaying the current day’s tasks and priorities and links to lists for the next day, the current week and what’s ahead in the future. The Any.Do app can be useful to almost anyone who needs organization and reminders. On phones, tasks can be added by either typing them or by speaking them into the phone’s microphone, which is really helpful for when you are on the go.
