Any.do is one of the best to-do managers we’ve used in a long time. The company stresses simplicity over complexity, and feels that less is more when it comes to trying to organize a busy life or work schedule. Today’s update makes the experience even better for those who work with others to accomplish their daily tasks in life.
Any.do 2.0 brings a cloud-driven collaboration engine that allows you and your spouse (or classmates, or coworkers) to organize important tasks and help keep you on track to completing your goals every day. Your wife might create a grocery shopping list, but she can’t get there herself. She can simply add you to the list and have you take care of it while you’re out. Real-time collaboration allows her to add or remove items that she thinks of and it’ll update on your phone pretty much instantly.
Apply that to multiple students working on a school project or a project manager at work having to divvy up tasks between employees. The free version offers one-on-one collaboration, but the premium subscription ($5 per month/ $45 per year thereafter) will allow you to bring as many people on board as you need. Any.do 2.0’s goal is to make sure anyone and everyone tuned into that list knows exactly what’s going on at all times.
They’ve also taken the simple to-do list a step further by introducing attachments, so you can attach images, audio, photos and video to a note or task list item to make sure whoever is looking at it has any relevant information they need. That particular feature allows files up to 5 megabyes for free users, though the premium experience wipes away that limit and lets you upload any type of file you want. Folks using Dropbox can even pull files straight from their Dropbox account in case they store things in the web (and we hope more services will be supported in future updates).
Finally, today’s update brings custom backgrounds (just in case the typical day/night themes aren’t doing it for you) and fine tuned reminders that give you the flexibility to create any type of reminder as frequently or infrequently as you want. You can find it all in the Google Play Store right now, and be sure to watch the video above to see how it might help enhance one’s life
