Getodo - App Review

Being organised isn't an option, it's a necessity.

If you haven't already got a system in place, this App might be the one for you.

Now for the ACIDS test:

You don't have to set up an account but, if you do, you will be able to synchronise across different devices.

The basic input screen couldn't be much simpler (just what we like to concentrate on the matter in hand). There is a + to add new entries, access to a calendar to see where you are, a sync facility (provided you are logged in and created an account), and a settings icon.

The best way to start (apart from reading the tutorial, of course), is to tap the + and add an item. This allows you to colour code the item and add an optional alarm.

The whole App is then gesture driven:

Edit - double tap
Complete - swipe right (it goes green and then goes to the foot of the list as strikethrough)
Delete - swipe left
Move order - press and hold to drag
Sub Task - drag and drop at the right of another task
See sub tasks - only those tasks which have children will have a number at the right of the row; press it to see the sub tasks
Assign a task to someone by starting it with @nameofperson

The App costs a nominal $1.

An organiser is essential; which one depends on your preferences.

One of the great advantages of this App is the availability of sub lists, which means you can split tasks without having lists so long that you get depressed.

The App works very well.

The ability to store information in the cloud and access it on multiple devices is the usual double-edged sword.

ACIDS Test Rating:

Easy to use and powerful
