Did you ever feel frustrated over the way you organize your to-do’s? Tangled in your web of post-it stickers hung around your office? There might be some hope for you yet. Any.DO, an Israeli social to-do app that has been voted best Android app of 2011 by Techcrunch, organizes user’s tasks in new and creative ways.
Like other to do apps, Any.DO includes the basics, like adding tasks, marking them complete, setting priorities, etc. But it does a number of other things which make it stand out from the crowd. For example, you can create tasks using voice command, you can use gestures to manage your tasks like drag-and-drop for assigning task priorities or organizing tasks into folders or swiping to mark tasks complete. You can also shake your phone to clear off the completed tasks from the screen. In addition, it syncs with Google tasks.

But Any.Do’s most intelligent feature is its auto-complete. When a user starts typing a new task, the app offers to auto-complete entries. Much like Google, the user is able to choose from the different suggestions. The list is easy to use and tasks can be dragged down from day to day, or copied.
Any.DO also lets you share a task, which means others can edit the note and complete it. This allows users to team up on tasks with family and friends – in some ways replacing group texting or e-mail threads.
Any.DO, created in 2011 by Omer Perchik, Yoni Lindenfeld & Itay Kahana, was downloaded over 500,000 times during the 30 days following its launch. It was recently voted be best android app for 2011 by Techcrunch, followed by Lightbox and Amazon MP3.
The app has an average 4.5 star rating out of more than 7,000 ratings. According to the the Any.Do team, so far 2.5 million tasks have been added, with more than one million completed. There is an average of 100,000 tasks added every day, and 50 percent are added by voice command.
