5 Excellent Android Apps for Making Lists
We may not always know it, but our brains make lists all the time. It’s part of our need to be organized and not leave anything out. After years of making lists on paper, in your head, or on any surface available — it’s time to digitize the habit using your Android phone. Here are five ways you can make lists with the following apps.
It’s the most attractive interface for making just about any list you can think of. Check items off or put a star to remember specific tasks easily. Change the background image to suit your mood. Making lists will not seem like a chore with this app, and it keeps you motivated to check back since it’s simply a gorgeous looking app. Wunderlist also syncs online, so you’ll need to sign up for the service. Don’t worry, it’s free and easy.
Action Method is a good way to list tasks that belong to a certain goal or project. This is useful for writers, designers or artists who are hired to complete a project within a specified time. Action Method allows you to create a project and assign tasks and due dates under each one. It also has a Focus feature – where you can tag items which you need to prioritize above all else. Once focus items are set, the app tells you whether you’re getting close to accomplishing your Focus item, or if there are other tasks that get in the way.
3. Food Planner
There are lots of shopping lists in the Play Store. Most of these need you to list down everything you need on the top of your head. Food Planner, however, makes the shopping list based on the recipes you enter as part of your daily, weekly or monthly food plan. Ingredients found on recipes entered in the planner can immediately be made into a list – which you can edit later. It definitely cuts down the time you spend typing in all those grocery items.
If you want to make lists with photos, Pinterest for Android is now out and ready for your pinning needs. Create boards for different kinds of lists from your wardrobe wishlist to your most current DVD collection. Share them with friends and discover what others are pinning too. Expect to receive likes and comments for your lists – as Pinterest is also a social network in addition to a great way to pin stuff on the web.
5. Do it (Tommorow)
Do It Tomorrow is the procrastinator’s To-Do list. You only need to list things you want done either today or tomorrow. It’s that simple. Because when you’re a procrastinator, that’s all you can really manage. I like the quirky design down to the coffee stain. This is an app for those who don’t like lists, or don’t take them too seriously.
