What’s not to like about Apple’s built-in Reminders app which syncs nicely between Mac, iPhone, and iPad? Other todo apps get more complex. Here’s one that could be the most usable of all except for one thing.
Do The DailyDo
If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, then app usability lies in the interface. DailyDo’s user interface mirrors the simplest of day planners but in digital form.
Click the DailyDo icon in the Menubar and DailyDo pops up on the screen as a note pad ready to take and store tasks.
Enter a new todo item on a specific date with a click to the Plus sign (add a new task).
When the task is done, click the checkbox and DailyDo crosses off the item as finished. If you need a quick reminder of what still needs to be done just click the Menubar again.
Here’s what DailyDo looks like as an open app.
Here’s what DailyDo looks like with a click to the Menubar icon.
Considering the nominal price tag, there’s plenty to like about DailyDo.
It’s easy to see what’s left to do from your list with just a click. It’s easy to enter new tasks.
The built-in notification system can be controlled to give you reminders to work on tasks, rather than annoying you or nagging you with continual pop up warnings for each item.
DailyDo is simple to setup and use, but I’m perplexed by one seemingly apparent omission.
There’s no iPhone or iPad version, and no way to sync DailyDo’s list between Macs or other devices. If all of your work is on the Mac, it’s great. If you want that todo list to travel between devices, Apple’s own Reminders app works better.
