Getting things Done apps, or commonly known as Todo apps are the most widely used productivity mobile apps around. Even those who dont use it, have it, just for the hell of it. Organizing life is an ongoing process or some like me would call it – “A loosing battle”. But since the advent of iPhone, theres been a renewied interest in these Todos. Users are making efforts to use them as effectively as possible and With purpose.
But then How long will we stick to it? Will the information be lost? Will the zest, the love for these Todos fade away? Would we eventually jump to a new Todo and start over??
iPhone and Apple’s Human Interface Guidlines have brought or rather forced one simple decleration. INTERFACE and DESIGN RULEZ! Its true though isnt it? We use apps that are more visually appealing than others? Now we realise how important these factors are in any kind of app Specially Productivity!
Enter the Productivity apps of Android and iPhone! Lets check out Android Market!
Google has promoted its taskList service gmail.com/tasks. Web apps, But we’re concerned about platform native apps that “force” us to use it. (cuz we cant resist it!). Android because of the way its made, keeps things very hand. Its got a great Notification system and really functional status bar whether its calender events or SMSes etc.

Okay, wait, We were supposed to see some apps that’ll blow us away! Android, will have one, hopefully and soon. But its not there yet. So in our quest to see some blow away apps, lets switch to iPhone and check out its App Store for a change.. (Hey, I said this before, we’re not Android fan boys, we just like quality stuff which is Android itself but at the moment iPhone has some Quality todo Apps)
The LIST of great Todo apps for iPhone is pretty long but lets choose two great apps that serve our purpose, 2Do and Things
Both these apps offer a wide array of features coupled with great interface, design. In other words, they’re the best Todo Apps out there today.
Things has a very simplified interface, They made an effort to keep it as simple, sleek as possible which caters to a wide audience, while 2Do‘s interface design is simply on steriods! Its all custom made with some amazing animations. What makes it different? Its not just a simple app with amazing interface, it offers reliable functionality and features that no other app does. Guided Ways Technologies simply made a complete app!
Both these apps cater to Wide users, While I like amazing interface, animations, bling bling.. the Things guys prefer simple, sleek error free and reliable app. Both of them have a market! Although, 2Do has the ability to grab some of Things thing! 2Do supports Themes 😉
You see apps like these on your mobile device and you feel compelled to organize, cuz these apps are so damn good!! And this or rather these kinds of apps are. at the moment, missing in Android.
