The innovative to-do app Any.DO has launched a new feature, which conveniently integrates right into Gmail. This new Gmail integration lets you add tasks to Any.DO directly from your emails, eliminating the annoying habit of leaving a pile of unread messages with tasks to do later. Considering the increasing amount of users who use email as a means to receive and remember tasks, this feature could prove very useful, especially if you already use Any.DO.
Any.DO made a splash last year when it first launched for Android, and followed a few months later with its iPhone and Chrome apps. It’s this Chrome extension that now also includes the new Gmail integration. After installing the Any.DO extension, you’ll find a new “Remind Me” button every time you open a new email in Gmail. The add-on automatically uses the email’s subject line, and lets you set a due date and time for the new task.
This in itself is nothing brilliantly new, but for Any.DO users, this could be a real game changer, as the tasks you add from Gmail are automatically added to your Any.DO to-do list, which you can access from your mobile device. Since you’ve probably been adding tasks from emails to your list as it is, this can be a huge time-saver. In addition, you can also email tasks to yourself by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, and these will also be automatically added to your to-do list.
If you haven’t tried Any.DO yet, you can download it for free for Android [2.2+] or for iPhone/iPod Touch. Any.DO is also available as a Web app. What so you think of the new feature? Will it be useful for you?
