Review: Do it Tomorrow App

So I've been using this Do It Tomorrow app on and off for about a year.  What it comes down to is a basic to-do list. It's not my daily to-do list, that's handwritten however I use it as a list of things I would like to get accomplished at some point.  I use it as a reminder.  It is my master list of tasks.




How many times have you been out and about then remember - "damn I wanted to do that"  but you know as soon as you get home you'll forget - well I use this app for those moments.  I check it periodically during the week to see if I need to add any of them to my daily to-do list.

I have used other to-do list apps but they get so complicated with a list for this and a list for that and oh I should have lists for the kids and soon I was drowning in lists.  Do it tomorrow app reminded me that I should keep it simple.  So I have two lists the master list and the daily list.  My master list is my do it tomorrow app that I can ignore and not get overwhelmed.  My daily to-do list is a thoughtful list I make each morning of things I know I can accomplish that day and if I get them all done early - that is when I turn to my Do it Tomorrow list.

Here's a quick snapshot of my thoughts on the app:

Neutral:
  • It's one list - I say neutral because I like this as a feature.  When I had several lists I got confused and overwhelmed.  But I can see how a super organized person would like the complicated lists.
  • Ultimately it comes down to being just a to-do list - no bells or whistles - again I prefer that, see reason above.
Pros:

  • Keeps track of your tasks
  • Chrome allows you to add it as an extension to its browser
  • List items are placed in the cloud so you can access it from anywhere that has an App (itunes or android market)  I have mine on my tablet.
  • List automatically moves to tomorrow if you don't cross it off
  • You can move things to the next day and focus on the ones you want to get done today
  • you can move tasks on the list up and down
  • Pretty user interface - I think visually appealing is a good thing
  • Simple
  • It's free although there is a paid service to integrate Google Tasks for $1.99 I did not have this

Cons:
  • The extension only lets you add items to your list, you can't see other items on your list without opening the app
Note: I didn't get paid for this.  I know there are so many blog posts (not mine) that do this but not this one.

  1. I like the name! It has this edgy tension of being procrastination or the opposite of it!

    I'm experimenting with stormboard (for the task I cooperate on with my webdesigner) and using Evernote.

    1. funny you should say that - it's tagline is "the to-do list for procrastinators"

      I use Evernote too but I don't really use the task feature - it too becomes just a bunch of lists everywhere.

  2. What a great idea! I need to download this. I like how if you don't cross a task off it automatically moves it to the next day so you don't forget about it. This will take care of all the stickies I have laying around with things I need to get done that I've been putting off doing and throwing away! Ha! Thanks for sharing!

    1. So true and I know for the android app you can have a widget for your tablet, that show the top few items on the list. I don't use it because I'd like to stick to my daily list and I have a calendar widget up which is all I want to see when I use my tablet.

  3. Sounds like something I definitely NEED! Thanks for the info.

    1. Yeah, I love it because you can't lose this list

  4. That sounds interesting. Mostly I am trying to keep Apps to a minimum, but maybe I should consider this one. My favorite feature? List automatically moves to tomorrow if you don't cross it off.

    1. Not that I mind either way - it's more curiosity, why you are keeping apps to a minimum?

  5. This sounds like it might be just the thing I need to get my social media schedule together!

  6. This kinds of reminds me of the reminders list on iphones. I use that list for everything and sometimes make separate lists for special things.

A Procrastination Coach? - maybe later

Nearing the end of the holiday season usually means last minute shopping, baking, and celebrating.  Then, around the corner, is the New Year.  In the back of my mind, my new year's resolutions are forming, like a de-cluttered house, a larger inventory and my very own website.

However, the end of the year should be about reflection as well and what we've accomplished.  I started a regular blog, became a youtube partner as well as being invited to a couple of youtube conglomerates, and in this last month, I opened my etsy shop.  All this from my home office with distractions like the laundry and dishes begging to be cleaned, a dog that barks when I'm on the phone and kids who think I am there to wait on them hand and foot.(And yet, they are always surprised when I don't <shaking head>)

Along my 2013 journey, I virtually met the procrastination coach.  Her blogs were insightful and useful.  I learned about why we procrastinate, how to recognize it and how it can be …

10 Tips for the new school year

A new school year is around the corner.  I've been doing the First day of school for over 10 years.  I thought I'd pass on some tips.

Go to the open houses so you can put faces to names when the kids talk about their teachers.
The Vice Principal in elementary school is usually more useful than the principal (and we've been to three different elementary schools).
If you want to know what's going on in the classroom, ask the teacher if you can sit in on the class.  If you ask nice enough, most teachers welcome it.
The difficult teachers are more likely to listen when I get my husband involved.  This one still makes me roll my eyes, but there it is.  Of course, be sure your husband is on your side.  I had a friend who husband would flip-flop and it backfired.  I suppose that's why teachers want Dads involved.  Lucky for me, my husband and I always agreed.
No matter what the school says, you are the biggest advocate for your child, you have seen them grow and know their his…

A quiet Confidence

When I was young, I liked staying home, reading books, watching T.V., exploring the neighborhood, and creating my own adventures. I have 10 brothers and sisters, most of whom would party, go shopping or just hang out with friends. I can think of three very distinct times in my early life when I was told, I should find some friends. Each time it was painful, probably because each time it came from someone close to me and they were telling me that something wrong with me and that perhaps others saw the same thing. I think this isolated me even more. In truth, I enjoyed being alone. I enjoyed exploring the neighborhood on my bike. I enjoyed getting lost in a book. I practically lived at the library. (Even today when I move to a new place, I first check out the library.) I enjoyed climbing trees, and creating adventures in the woods near the house. As an adult, I see now that I was perfectly fine. I recently watched the TED video - linked below. Some of the things Susan Cain …
