Any.do covered some more ground with the launch of a Web platform. The popular to-do and tasks application started its run as a mobile app for Android and iOS. An Any.do Chrome extension came before this slick unveiling of a web application. Now, you can access your to-do lists from any browser and sync tasks across the multiple platforms. Any.do remains free.
If you have Any.do installed on your smartphones, then the web app should be a familiar experience. Any.do organizes all tasks in a Time view and a Folder view. Add tasks (and sub-tasks) easily with a click on the + sign. The web app introduces a new feature – Planning and Focus Modes to give you two different perspectives on what you plan to do with your tasks. You can use the two icons on top to shift from one mode to the other.
The Planning Mode shows tasks and all folders spanned across today, tomorrow, and someday. At one glance, you get an overview of what needs to be done and what’s expected. Tasks can be easily moved across folders and dates for quick organization.
The Focus Mode as the name suggests shows all tasks arranged in a single top-to-bottom list. It’s easy to see and use this view if you like approaching your tasks one at a time. For any task, you can set timely reminders and cross them out when completed.
Any.do is one of the simpler task management apps around. There are some gaps in the web version, like the absence of a feature to automatically slot in recurring tasks as is possible with the Any.do mobile app. Notes is another feature that’s missing right now. But this is the first iteration of the web app and one can be sure that these features will find a place in the days to come. For now, Any.do Web App is a smooth and simple experience.
