Whatever it is, I’m on a roll with a handful of new to-do apps to get things done more efficiently. One I came across recently– and which I recommend if you can afford an ongoing subscription forever– is called WeDo. It’s a good way to get things done on Mac, iPhone, and iPad.
Lists Of Lists
Most of us muddle through the day using a variety of apps or tools to get things done. Maybe it’s Stickies on the Mac, or Reminders on iPad, or Notes on the iPhone (I love how all those play nice-nice with one another and synchronize easily in iCloud), but whatever it is, we have plenty of choices to help us get things done.
WeDo is a get things done system; apps that run on Mac, iPhone, iPad, even within a browser, on Android devices, and Apple Watch. It’s also familiar in the way that lists and to-do checkboxes are familiar.
Create a to-do item with a click. Set up reminders and due dates and share with others. Repetitive tasks are easy to setup, too, and there’s a touch of project management built-in to WeDo. They’re called sub-tasks and reside within a task. See? Project management.
Invitations are built in, too, so you can get co-workers, family members, friends and others to work on tasks using the ‘tribe’ technology. Tasks are displayed in the left-hand sidebar. Click on a task to reveal the details in the center. Every task you create can be edited. Tasks can be handed out to groups or shared lists, or kept entirely private.
Not bad for free, right? Well, free to a point. More features are available in the subscription version, so think of WeDo as a free app that is more than usable. It’s excellent. But more features and collaboration options come with the monthly price tag.
Subscriptions are here to stay, folks.
