Do you find you can't get things done? If you are king of the procrastinators, ruling over a realm of incomplete tasks, HabitRPG might be for you. This app is basically a to-do list manager, but it frames everything as a quest in your own personal RPG.

Fans of the task management service Astrid were understandably concerned when Yahoo acquired the company back in May. Now their worst fears have been realized. Astrid is shutting down on August 5th of this year. That gives you less than a month to get your data out.
A lot of our readers have made the jump to Google Keep for their task/to-do manager of choice, but the older and more feature-filled Astrid still has a wide and appreciative community of users. Today the cross-platform service announced that it's been purchased by Google's ancient and somewhat diminished rival, Yahoo. While details on price and timeline are scarce, the service blog notes that they're no longer accepting premium subscriptions (which added data storage and saved voice notes) and will be issuing refunds to those who have paid for subscriptions and plugins.

So maybe you made some resolutions this as the new year is upon us, but how are you supposed to keep track of all your resolution-related tasks with only two crummy dimensions? Hmm? Yeah, you're going to want at least three dimensions of to-do management, and that's where Zime comes in. This app is still in beta, but it's a really cool, flashy to-do list that relies on a gesture-controlled timeline view. Read More
I have a confession to make. I don't care for Evernote. 'Hang him from a gibbet!' I know, but I just prefer Springpad. Which is why I was excited today to see that the newest update brings tablet support for one of the coolest features: Springpad Board. This view allows users to look at all the elements of their notebook—be they text, photos, maps, to-do lists or whatever—as though they are sitting on a table. Read More
While Astrid may be one of the leading to-do lists on Android, there is a considerable amount of innovation to be done in the world of keeping track of things that need doing. Apparently! Enter Wunderlist, an app that Matt liked well enough, but couldn't quite manage to make him keep coming back. Perhaps today's update will change his mind, though, as it brings a host of new features such as improvements to the UI, push notifications, Smart lists, and a better widget. Read More
Android is far from the first platform Todoist has landed on, but fans of the service have been anxiously waiting. Todoist is a clean, snappy to-do list manager that has a ton of cloud features to keep your busy life under control. The app is free to use in basic mode, but the advanced features are gonna cost you.
The main interface in Todoist is just a super-minimalist task list organized in chronologic order. Read More
In the modern world, watching TV shows isn't what it used to be. Back in the old days (or the present for some), shows simply existed at a certain time and you tuned in when they aired, and then they were cancelled and then you never heard from them again. Today, though, it's not uncommon for most viewers to discover a show a few seasons in and then find their way through the backlog of episodes. Read More
Trello is not just a to-do manager. With this app, you can organize any project into cards, which can be used as a private tracker of your progress, or shared with friends and colleagues that you're working with. To top it off, it all comes in an attractive package with cloud syncing.
Everything in Trello is grouped into boards, which should be treated as separate projects. The cards are individual aspects of each project board. Read More
As Android Police's unofficial person who knows things about laws (as always, none of this is legal advice), sometimes I see law stuff going on in the tech world that just makes me mad. This is one of those times. Appigo, an iOS and OS X developer, filed for a trademark on the word "Todo" (see it here) under the scope of a software application (basically).
Yesterday, we received an email from a developer of an app for Android called Star Trek ToDo Agenda. Read More
