Android has had some powerful to-do lists dating all the way back to Cupcake, but few are quite as nice-looking as 2Do, a recent entry (although Astrid's new design might be a solid contender). The $7 to-do list (yes, you read that right) does it's best to make itself worth the money. Tabbed calendars, the ability to attach photos, starred tasks, and a selection of themes make it one of the nicer to-do lists we've used. It even has support for the Galaxy Note's S Pen.

The app strikes a nice balance between its obvious iOS-heritage and implementing ICS style guidelines. While the app doesn't really look like it fits in with Android's design scheme (faux realistic materials is really more of an iOS design concept), the app makes perfect use of the Action Bar design. The UI is even consistent across older versions of Android, which some apps seem to have trouble with.

The one thing we would've liked to see is a proper tablet layout. The app supports an option landscape view that places a Calendar next to your to-do lists, but unfortunately, enabling this view disables the colored tab sidebar. This makes sense on a phone, but on a tablet is just wasted real estate.

The biggest bummer of this app is the $7 price tag, but if apps like Astrid aren't filling your need, you're looking for an app with S Pen support, or you just really like the design of apps like this, then grab it from the widget below.

    Does it sync with google calendar and tasks?

    • 熊熊 吳

      nope

  • Juggalotusheat

    Seems like it'd be functional for Apple hipsters but out of milk gets the job done... AND its free

  • icefreez

    I still prefer Astrid.

    I think didit is better looking and simpler, but its still not very well known..Didit!

    Looks nice, but I don't think it comes anywhere close in terms of looks & experience when compared to <a href="https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.anydo"Any.DO.

      Sorry about that link. I meant Any.DO

      I agree. I like Any.Do because of its simplicity. I've tried quite a few TODO apps, and the ones I tend to stick with are those that let you quickly enter a task and retrieve it later. And.. $7?!? Not in a market where there are very good free alternatives.

    +1 for Any.Do, I've been a user for Any.Do since it was released and I'm very happy with it... I know it doesn't do anything but it works very practically, fast and easy and very practical for every day use !! and it's free !!

    Any.Do is already working on web interface and iOS version also..

  • Dylan Andersen

    Great app, however it's missing an integral part: Sync. It syncs to ToodleDo, but you might as well use their app for that.

    Where's my Google Tasks/Dropbox sync?!

    Another vote for Any.Do. Best to-do app out there. There are a few features I kinda wish it had, but for ease of use and design, nothing beats it!

  • Glorfyyyy

    Looks like Apple made it ... gross textures ... are we in 2003? Mathias Duarte will be rolling his eyes!

  • Herbert Jamesman

    2Do looks great but its interface is not very intuitive. I rather prefer
    Any.Do
