So finally after some delay ColorDo is live in the AppStore now. It’s my first To-Do app, guess every developer will make one in his or her lifetime. Either for using it or code learning. Anyhow does my version makes a difference in the forest of To-Do apps in the AppStore? Or how would I describe it in one sentence?
Imagine the popular “Clear” app and “Mailbox” app hooking up…. that’s ColorDo. A colorful and easy to use To-Do app with gesture controls inspired by the Mailbox app. Do the things that needed to be done now or postpone them to tomorrow.
Read the full description below or try out the lite version.
Description in AppStore:
ColorDo designed by a Procrastinator
The developer of ColorDo knows one or two things about procrastination (guess most people do too).
And like most people, this developer included, downloaded and tested lots of different To-Do apps in the hope of simply getting something done.
But somehow always ending up with lists full of entries… and not knowing where to start : (
What’s different with ColorDo? The first thing: colors. Lot’s of different colors. Based on modern psychology knowledge about human memory & perception, colors can play a big role in how you see and remember the things around you. A simple example “green” means good, go for it or something like it. Red means danger, something important etc.
The second thing: icons. Icons are visual representation of information. When you see a certain icon, you’ll know at once what they mean. Just look at your iPhone and you’ll know what I mean.
ColorDo is designed based on these two principles/points.
So whenever you make a new “ToDo Task” or as the developer like to call it “ColorDo”, you’ll enter the description text and also pick an icon plus color.
This way tasks can be easier located in a full list.
But as a procrastinator the developer knows: list are dangerous. So hence the postpone option, with one simple swipe task are postponed for a day and also removed from the main list. You postponed it so no need to see or access them. This frees up space and attention on the task that matters now (today).
The other option that most To-Do Apps lack is handling recurring task or certain group of task that you do on certain days. ColorDo does this in a new way using the OutBox option. Create the group of task you want and put them in the OutBox. When you’re done, you sent them in a ColorDo file to yourself. So when the time comes you just open the email with the ColorDo file attachment and import them into ColorDo. Type them once and use them forever (as long as you have the email with attachment).
That is one function of the OutBox. The other function is sending ColorDo’s to the people you know.
For example when you are working on a big project with a group of people. You make the subtasks buildup and sent them in one file to the group.
Or instead of sending long list of to-do’s to someone in a mail. Do it in a more colorful way!
This is the global description of ColorDo. For more information, suggestions or tips: feel free to sent the developer (me in this case) an email or a ColorDo ; )
