Each month I highlight web or mobile apps that are useful to lawyers. Sometimes the apps are developed specifically for lawyers and other times I feature non-legal apps that are nevertheless interesting to lawyers.
Today’s app is Any.DO, a user-friendly and versatile “to do” app. Any.Do is a free app that is flexible enough to fit into most workflows. It’s available as a broswer extension for Chrome, as an Android app and as an iPhone app.
Any.Do is a robust to do app and, like many of its competitors, you can add tasks via the web interface or the smartphone app, and can even share them with others if necessary. But what sets it apart is the way that it integrates with your smartphone and with Gmail.
For example, one useful feature is that if you add a task using your smartphone and it includes the name of someone stored as a contact on your phone, the app will connect the task to your contact and will automatically include a link to any contact information relating to that person.
Another great Any.DO feature is that the Chrome extension integrates with Gmail, prompting you to add an email-related task at the end of each email. The task you create is then linked to the email, so that you can quickly return to the email, should you need to do so in the future.
These are just a few of the great features offered by this versatile to do app. All in all, it’s a very flexible and user-friendly to-do app, so if you’re in the market for a to do app and haven’t yet found one that fits the bill, Any.DO might just be the one you’ve been looking for!
