Do! app review: keep your life simple and streamlined

Reviews

Introduction

Keeping a mental "to-do" list can be stressful and, in most cases, not very productive because it's almost a guarantee you'll forget at least one item. The Do! app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone to keep track of all the errands, items, and more that you would otherwise try to remember in your head. The app's user interface takes a minimalist approach with the "more is less" train of thought. It's important not to confuse this more is less concept with a lack of features however because you still have a nice collection of user-friendly tools.

Organization Made Simple

Just because you want to be organized and manage your life doesn't mean you want to be bogged down by an app full of options and confusing features. Instead, you can use this one to quickly and easily create lists whenever you want. I have to say though one of my favorite guilty pleasures, shall we say, of this app has nothing to do with its tools; rather, it has to do with the user experience. As you create your list the app offers a ball pen and paper sound effect that is incredibly realistic. There is no need to go through an extensive tutorial just to use the app and if you're looking for one that acts as a personal assistant with all the bells and whistles, this isn't the right one for you.

The app is free to use but if you want to remove the ads you can do so with an in-app purchase of $0.99. Do! has four out of five stars from users who can't get enough of this streamlined productivity tool.

The User Experience

As soon as you launch this app it is obvious that it isn't your typical offering. Literally the screen could not be more streamlined. The date appears on the top of the screen, you can add a new task by tapping on the bar, and there is an edit button.. and that's about it. Where the features are is when you are actually typing in the task. You will find you can mark it today, tomorrow, a specific date, or none. You can also set a timer, pin it,  and add a sticky tab beside it and choose the color of it. Tap on a task to cross it off, or press the edit button to delete it or make a change to it. Change around the order of the tasks by hitting the edit button and then dragging them into place.
