To-Do List for iPhone review
To-Do List is a handy tool that can keep you organised in a pinch. The interface is easy to use, so it won’t add to the confusion of your day. Colour-coded tasks, large checkboxes to tick off tasks as completed, and a few interesting extras make this app worth a download.
To-Do List has three main purposes in life. One is to add quick reminders. You can add a task with a note – such as, remember to get milk after work – and set a priority to the task using a slider that changes the colour. (Red means get it done now.) You can then enter a due date and select a category, such as work or personal. (You can also add additional custom categories.) You can then view those tasks by category, priority, due date, and title.
You can also use To-Do List to add an email reminder. Say you want to email your boss about a great idea. You can enter the reminder and then send the email once you’ve fleshed out the idea more.
Finally, To-Do List lets you add a call reminder. For email and call tasks, you can initiate emails or call your contact from the app.
An app like this would benefit greatly from multi-tasking, which the iPhone doesn’t yet support. You can copy and paste from other iPhone apps, such as Mail and Safari, but you can’t run these apps concurrently. However, being able to trigger emails and calls is a good way to keep you on track.
The easy-to-use interface lacks a professional, well-designed look and feel. Fields are all different shapes and sizes, presumably to make data entry faster – but they lack consistency.
To-Do List isn’t a project manager, nor does it pretend to be one. However, as a basic task manager with email and call reminders, it gets things done.
