Four new to-do apps to organise your life

What should one look out for in a good to-do list app? Apart from a clean and easy user interface, a good to-do list app should have options to organize tasks in multiple ways: categories, tags and dates. Perhaps the most important feature is the option to sync your tasks and information across platforms.

Todoist, for instance, is one the first and most popular to-do list apps. But in recent times, this category of apps has become an ever bigger hit with productivity lovers. Here’s a look at some recent to-do list options that you can use to organize your important tasks and set timely reminders for your deadlines.

Habitica: Think of this as a habit-building app. Only, Habitica gamifies your daily tasks and makes it simple to have fun while accomplishing your routine goals.

The more tasks you complete, the more rewards you get within the app to level up your avatar and unlock more features: such as armor, skills, and even pets.
