Raise your hand if you've made a resolution to be more focused and productive in 2013. Now put it back down again, because you're probably reading an Android blog on a Tuesday morning when you should be working/exercising/enriching the lives of your fellow men. But if you're serious about time management, a to do list is a must, and this unofficial Cheddar app might just be our new favorite.

If you're unfamiliar with Cheddar, it's a popular to do application that seems to have a personal grudge against hardware that isn't designed in California. While the apps for Mac and iOS have been getting rave reviews, there's no official option for Android users (PC owners, you know, 90% of the market, can just suck it up and use the web). Independent developer CreativeMedia have taken it upon themselves to make an Android version of Cheddar, and while it retains the attractive simplicity of its iOS counterpart, it also conforms with Android's Holo UI standard. Type a new task and hit "done" to create it, and tap it once to complete it. Tap and hold to complete multiple tasks at once, or move them to a separate list.

Created and completed tasks sync with the Cheddar web service, as does the on-the-fly order management, hashtags, and lists. For those developers who want even more features, the app is open source, so feel free to head over to GitHub to contribute to the project. Cheddar is a freemium service - you'll need to pay the $2 a month service charge (to Cheddar itself, not the app developer) if you want more than two concurrent lists.

    I must be missing something. Why pay for Cheddar when Google Tasks does the same thing for free?
