Gratitude for Toodledo!

I have so much gratitude for a free online tool that I use to manage my To-Do list! I cannot imagine what I would do with out it. I chuckle when I think about all the methods I used in the past! I had all sorts of scrap papers in my pocket, I used various computer programs (even one my best friend, Marco, wrote), I tried incorporating post-it notes into my Franklin Covey planner… You name it, I think I may have tried it at some point.

But now… Oh my! Now, I absolutely LOVE a free online / iPhone app called, Toodledo! As I mentioned in the Gratitude Burst today, I currently have 55 items on my list. I like to order them by Date, although I can order them by Folder, Context, or even Priority. If you have any experience with the GTD system (Getting Things Done by David Allen), this website will incorporate a lot of that system.

You can see a screen shot of the actual page of my account (I blurred some of the personal/sensitive items). What could make this even better? There is an app for my iPhone! I can update / add / check-off completed items at any point! How awesome is that? And oh yeah… did I mention it does not cost you anything?

To be completely honest, they do have a Pro Membership. The basic membership is free. 100% Free! and it works fantastically. I did upgrade to the Pro Membership when there was a problem with one of their servers a year ago. There was a brief time period (i.e., a few hours) that data was not updated from the website to my iPhone. The professionalism in which the incident was handled was so top-notched that I felt compelled to upgrade just because I was so grateful for how they communicated what they were doing, time lines to normal service, etc.

By the way – the upgrade is only $14.95/year! If you do upgrade, you get additional features which are nice.

As you can tell, I have an incredible amount of gratitude and love for this website & app! What do you use? Leave a comment and share your ideas and methods for tracking your To-Do list.

Be Well.

    FYI the app is now $3.99 Still looks like it is worth the price. Thanks for sharing.

      @Lisa –
      Thanks for the update, Lisa! I must have gotten the app when it was free, or I sub sub-consciencely thought of it as free! I guess that shows how much I love it! If you do not have an iPhone, the website is still free, so you can still gain the benefit that way! Again, thanks for the info! Be Well.

    If you’d like a tool for managing your time and projects, you can use this web-application inspired by David Allen’s GTD:

    Gtdagenda.com

    You can use it to manage and prioritize your goals, projects and tasks, set next actions and contexts, use checklists, schedules and a calendar.
    Comes with a mobile version too, and with an Android app.

    I’ll have to take a closer look at this, Paul. I’m a big fan of the GTD system and if it integrates well, it sounds like a bargain at $14.95.
    Thanks for the info.

    Paul, thank you for pointing me towards this resource. You are a MIND READER! Just today I was googling something about to-do lists and toodledo came up.

    I dismissed it because I’m already trying to work through Asana and Trello and was trying to stick with one of those out before trying something new. But you sold me! I do really love Trello though so far.

    Look forward to seeing you at NAMS in a few short weeks.
