Organise your to-do list items with hashtags and mentions
If you were under any illusions as to how #todo works, then you needn’t look any further than the application’s name. The hash sign gives it all away; you guessed it – this is the to-do list app for the Twitter generation.
#todo’s main interface is split into four sections: Today (for items which are due in the next 24 hours); Week (for items due in the next seven days); Open (for items with no set due date); and Week+ (for items that are due in the future, beyond seven days). The fact that these need to be explained makes things seem a little unintuitive, and the reality is not far off. That said, the idea behind this is very logical and, with a bit of getting used to, the setup works well.
Creating a note is as straightforward as tapping the stack of notes positioned at the bottom of the screen and then typing away. If you were wondering what the connection is, just like Twitter, #todo limits characters for each item and adding hashtags helps you categorise and group different items, while Mentions enable you to associate them with certain people. It’s quite a lot to get your head around at first, but if you’re a regular Twitter user, you will probably find this system quite easy to get to grips with.
Dig a little deeper into the app and you’ll find that it’s packed with features, like a to-do list within a single item and the possibility of earning achievements by completing a particular to-do list. It’s well worth checking out.
#todo takes a little while to pick up, but that doesn’t mean it hasn’t got a lot to offer – particularly for keen tweeters.
