I have ADHD. It’s not the worst case ever, but it does affect my day to day life. I know there are arguments that ADHD is over diagnosed and that tons of kids who have it are just kids and will calm down as they get older. Well that never happened for me. Here I am in my mid 30s and I still struggle with inattention, distractions, quick loss of interest, and many other exciting problems. But this article isn’t about the validity of ADHD, it’s about a simple program that really helped me get organized.
In my search to better rein in my scattered brain I have tired multiple strategies, including lists on the fridge, pocket planners, iPhone/iPad apps, and web apps (to name a few). One app has had a profound effect for me: Any.Do is a multi-platform to-do list app and nothing more. I’m a fan of simple and clean design and Any.Do is the epitome of that philosophy. At the moment you can get Any.Do for both Android and iOS based phones/tablets as well as a Google Chrome extension.
If you have been looking for a to do list app I would definitely give Any.Do a try. Since there is not much to the app there is not much to write. It’s a simple to do list app with a simple interface. You add an item to one of your lists and when you have completed the task, swipe your finger across the item and it is crossed off. Wash, rinse, repeat. I highly recommend Any.Do because it does not come packed with tons of features that are not needed. It’s not flashy. It’s not bundled with a calendar. It does not send me email when something is late. It’s a simple list that makes keeping track of what I need to get done simple and clean.
