Any.DO – one of the best looking task managers on Android – just got an update that makes the app even more useful. For starters, it now has DashClock support; if you're not already using DashClock Widget, then you're missing out on the single best widget of all time. Really, it's pretty amazing. But that's a different story.

Aside from that, is a new feature called Any.DO Moment, which is essentially an elegant daily reminder to plan your day. Because everyone knows: plan your work, and work your plan. That's one of those quasi-motivational things that they tell you at work, right? Anyway, Moment is a neat feature, especially if you forget to put tasks into your task planner that is meant to help you not forget to do things.

Past that, reminders now have a new look, there are two new languages (Polish and Portuguese), and the update also includes several bug fixes. All in all, this one's a winner. Head below to grab it.

    Why is this free? This app should be three dollars, at least.

    Have they enabled the auto sync with google tasks? I might switch back if they do - but until then i won't.

      I used to care about this, but now I only care is there is a web interface or Chrome extension for me to help manage my task lists. That's why I love Astrid (chrome & website), and why I later moved to Wunderlist (Chrome + Windows app) Google Task is pretty weak, and I just said forgeddaboutit.

        But Any.Do does have a Chrome plugin and it's planning to launch a website. There's a wait list right now. Check it out.

    I just discovered this app yesterday, ironically. It does sync with Google Tasks, but I find that much less impressive than the overall usability of the app. I think this works as a stand-alone to-do list program.

    The new "Moment" feature already bugged me into completing two tasks I needed to do today.

    I was an early "Any.Do" user who switched to the more streamlined, reliable, and Holo-designed "Tasks." This update has me taking a second look at Any.Do but I'm afraid it won't last long. Can anyone tell why it sometimes animates (tasks flying in from the left side) at 10 fps on a Nexus 4? When it happens, it's chunky and slow and kills the appeal.

      I have also had issues with other task lists and landed on tasks. It's basic and functional. Any.DO is too pretty.

      This is me right here. I used to use "Any.Do" until I found Tasks and made the switch. After hearing about "Moments", my interest peaked. I'm going to try it out for "work-related" tasks and see what I think.

      I used to use Any.Do until I had to find something that works better for me.... I have a ton of projects at work and the only task manager that has robust features is Todoist. It has a ton of features and unfortunately most of the good ones are for premium users only. $29 is a lot, but i figured it will help me organize my work. If i had more options I wouldn't even consider paying that much. Any.Do is way too simple

      Yeah, I had that exact experience. It's weird, because Moment is really fast and simple, so clearly they understand how to do it right. Yet they persist with this strangely sluggish and inexplicably non-standard interface for the rest of their app. It's a shame, because they have some very cool ideas.

    Am I the only one who doesn't like the ton of permissions the app is asking for.

  • Zaatour36

    wow, just wow!!

    this update is so amazing, its topping it's own self, I can't say how much I love this app.

    Any.Do devs are doing an awesome work :)
