Those that know me in IRL know that I love a good To-Do app. Lists help me stay on track and avoid the pitfalls of time-sucking sites like BuzzFeed and Bloglovin. Below are 3 to-do apps or websites that I’ve found this year that I really enjoy.

teuxdeux to-do list

TeuxDeuxTeuxDeux supposedly has an app, but the reviews alone made me stay far away and use the web-based version, both on my computer and iPhone. I like that when an item isn’t accomplished one day, it is moved the next day. You can also easily move the tasks on your own. TeuxDeux is free (but the app isn’t).

Do You Pay For Apps?

draw-somethingAs a new iPhone owner (made the switch last week after my HTC Evo speaker was going in and out and got into some shady malware apps), I was eager to download all the existing apps I had on my Android, as well as finally download all the games and apps clients, friends, and business colleagues are telling me to check out. I’ve been sucked into Draw Something and Scramble With Friends makes my heart happy.

All my app downloads made me start thinking, “When does a person love an app enough to buy it?” I have never bought an app, rather preferring to exit out of ad screens or closing my browser quickly when I accidentally do click on a banner ad. But this minor inconvenience has never bothered me enough to actually purchase the paid version.
