The digital alternative to building a physical to-do list has found its way in the form of apps, and it often brings powerful customization features, timers, categories, and even the ability to attach files.
However, sometimes it’s best to have an app that serves one goal of a to-do list: to showcase your upcoming tasks, in a way that’s both distraction-free and a treat to watch. . We’ve tested several to-do list apps and rounded up the most beautiful apps that help you stay on top of your life.
Nothing screams minimalism more than Tomorrowland, an app whose overall philosophy lies behind the principle of getting short-term tasks done. You only have two screens to worry about: Today and Tomorrow.
The only options you get when creating a new task are to add a reminder, select a category, and choose which of the two days you want to assign the task. From there, you’re just one tap away from marking your completed tasks.
What we found really unique with Tomorrow is the sense of urgency in completing the tasks listed. Since the app can only display two days’ worth of tasks at a time, once you memorize them, they’re pretty much gone. The app also has a dark mode and a simple widget that you can pin to your home screen.
While bare-bones functionality isn’t for everyone, Tomorrow serves as a good day planner. The biggest downside of the app is that there is no cloud backup option to sync between different devices.
Feature-rich apps are often associated with designs that are too complex, but not this one. Memorigi is probably the best looking to-do list app that doesn’t compromise in terms of features and customization as well.
Dashboards have large, bold, colorful icons that you can edit or rearrange to your liking. You can jump between different views including Inbox, Today, Upcoming, and a Logbook section where you can keep completed tasks. To add a new task, select the appropriate category and tap the plus icon. With the free version of Memorigi, you can schedule tasks, add notes to it, and change its icon and color.
While these parameters are enough to plan your day, you’ll want to pay for one of the two premium-level subscription plans if you want to enjoy a great amount of other features. Memorigi has a dark mode that’s a little easier on the eyes under Theme and UI options, where you can change the default view to any of the above sections.
Features like productivity stats, time limits, Google Calendar integration, and attachments are nice, but not necessary, to enjoy a pleasant experience while using Memorigi.
Tweak is a to-do list app designed for those who are tired of complicated menus and overwhelming sets of options. Sometimes all you need is a simple pen and paper style workflow to get things done. This is exactly what the tweak offers with its incredibly attractive UI.
The tweak uses a calendar view to display all of your tasks. There are no categories, tags, or priorities to distract you from designing a productive week. All you have to do is tap on the blank space below a date and start typing. You can add color to your works to bring some life to a rather monochromatic timeline.
The free version of the app also allows you to create shared calendars in collaboration with friends or your loved ones. The way the app displays your tasks is not only beautiful but also simple enough that you can print it on a piece of paper to plan your week in the traditional way that rivals the best online calendars.
The tweak has support for adding notes and subtasks under to-do items, but it lags behind a subscription plan. Other benefits of the premium version include rich text formatting, additional colors, a darker mode, and Google Calendar integration.
4. To-Do List
With a pretty self-explanatory name, To-Do Lists is another beautiful app for adding and organizing any upcoming chores. Adding a task is as simple as tapping the plus icon and selecting a category. You can add a calendar date, subtasks, and even choose from a list of templates for recurring tasks.
The app allows you to sort your tasks by their category, or by calendar view. There are also a few themes with the free version to To-Do List that you can apply to give the app a personal touch while adding and managing tasks. The widgets available in various layouts are also a neat addition.
On the far right of the Mine tab, you can sign in to your Google Account to enable cloud backup. This is also where you can view statistics for your completed and pending tasks. The paid version of the app unlocks more themes and widgets, gets rid of ads and enhances task reminders.
