Organize your thoughts with DOOO – To Do [iPhone]September 14, 2012 1 Email article | Print article
DOOO – To Do is an intriguing reminder utility that organizes your thoughts so your brain doesn’t have to. There are many different reminder/to-do apps on the App Market, but DOOO takes a very unique approach towards their creation. The premise of the app is that the user has important thoughts all the time, but they often get lost in our complex brains if you don’t immediately do something about them. DOOO was created to help remedy that type situation by having all of your important thoughts in one place.
DOOO’s user interface is quite impressive, as you will see two columns, Today and Unsolved, upon entering the app. The app prompts you to add a task right away, which entails simply writing one of those important thoughts we discussed previously. Your entry immediately will be added to the Today column and then after 24 hours, will be moved to the Unsolved column. I really like the concept of this, because the app, in a sense, is mimicking how our brain works. For example, whenever we have thoughts and don’t act on them, they tend to go to the “Unsolved” space in your brain, where for most of us, they end up being forgotten. DOOO will basically keep those thoughts in the Unsolved column until they are complete or you remove them.
DOOO provides many options for inputting thoughts, including photos, location checks, drawings, and voice recordings, to go along with the simple written entry. Once they are in the app, by swiping left, you have the option of locking the task, setting a reminder, or marking the task as completed. By swiping right, you can set a higher/lower priorities for certain items or remove them. Any item marked as done will be send to the History column, which you can access by swiping left on the main screen.
