Love Making Lists?
I think I make more ToDo lists than the average person. I love to try new apps for making lists, but am often disappointed with the results. Some of them have a very satisfying ding when you complete something, and some have great graphics or an easy interface, but there are not many that really combined everything in to a great package. I have found the following three to be really helpful.
- Trello is my new favorite. I find it’s visual format very useful. I can do a brain dump and then move things around into different cards very easily. I love the calendar power up, such an awesome way to see what is due when, you can ever move things on the calendar and it changes the date on the card. I read a great blog post on how to use it to keep your Blog Editorial Calendar at Boho Berry.
- Wunderlist was an app I used before Trello. I like its satisfying ding when you finish a task, but I did not like the format. It seemed clunky and busy to look at because everything shows at once. It was convenient to use to have common lists with clients, I could be assigned tasks and due dates, then they would see when it was finished. We could also communicate in the app if either of us had questions.
- Week Plan is an app I discovered in the Chrome App store. I liked the format, you see a weekly calendar at the top, plus have a few drag and drop lists on the bottom. Some of the features I wanted were in the pro upgrade though, and I didn’t want to pay to make lists at this point.
