Doo App

Doo is a new, minimalist task tracking app for Mac, iPhone, and iPad.

It promises to help you “transform your to-dos into a delightful stack of cards that keeps you on task and in the moment.”

You begin by creating a reminder:

Then you’ve got yourself a nice-looking card, with an image that auto-populates:

The image population quite often matched my task:

 

Doo Reminder: Write

 

Doo Reminder: Clean kitchen

 

Doo Reminder: Clean dining room

 

Doo Reminder: Go for a walk

 

But not always:

 

Doo Reminder: Push-ups

 

Once you’ve got your tasks entered, the nice thing about Doo is it only shows you one card at a time. You can pull up the card at first (and again as needed) to keep focused on what task you’re working on in the moment. Then when you’re done, a swipe up completes the task and a swipe down snoozes it. You can also flip between the cards to show a different top task.

I haven’t found myself using the app much for its project and list capabilities, but those are there, too.

You can add a timed reminder or even make a task repeating, too.

If you need to see multiple tasks at once, you can easily see all your Upcoming and Completed cards in Schedule View:

You can even complete them from here:

Or re-order them:

There is unfortunately no Split View or Slide Over on iPad, something I’d hope for in any task management app. Maybe future updates will add this?

There is a nice Today widget that lets you see your top three reminders:

Here’s how it looks in landscape on iPad:

And–boo yah! Share sheet, so you can add a task from the Web:

The Mac app is lovely, too, and syncs to iOS via iCloud:

You can access your Doo tasks from the menu bar, which is cool.

Doo is $2.99 for iOS (which gets you the app on iPhone and iPad) and $2.99 in the Mac App Store. Find it here (iOS) and here (OS X). Doo also has a killer Website, found here.
