We have all been there, finishing up a productive day yet battling the nagging feeling that we forgot something. No matter what, it is probably not as bad as the McAllister family in "Home Alone," who left a child home while they went on vacation.
You can feel pretty good about that at least, but still, you can't shake the feeling that something has slipped your mind. It happens more often than we'd like.
The digital age has made the Post-it Note reminders a thing of the past for many, as instead, it is easier and quicker to turn to apps. There are many to choose from, but Google wants you to look their direction.
Let Google help with your tasks
The app is called "Google Tasks," and it is designed to make your life easier. With its ability to sync across multiple devices as well as be integrated into Gmail and Google Calendar, it very easily could become the place you turn to when seeking to keep your life in order.
Available for both iOS and Android, the app makes it quite simple to create tasks for it to remember. Once you have downloaded the app, all you need to do is open it and then tap to add a new task.
From there, you fill in what the task is when it needs to happen and any other relevant details you see fit.
If you are the type of person who is always busy, you may be interested in separating your lists. After all, there is no need to mix work with family or other stuff, which is why the app allows you to create separate lists that you can switch between.
No matter how you organize the tasks, once completed, you just check a box next to them and they disappear, though they are archived under a tab for completed tasks. Before marked completed, tasks can also be sorted by date or in the order you added them.
In summary, Google Tasks will
- Allow you to quickly capture tasks anywhere
- Give the option to add details and create subtasks
- Let you view tasks that are created from emails
- Help you stay on track with due dates and notifications
- Integrate and be a part of G Suite
Remember, Google Tasks works anywhere
Whether you have an iPhone or Android, you can download the app. It will even work on your desktop computer via Gmail and Google Calendar.
So in other words, you never have to go anywhere without your task list. Maybe more than anything, that ability makes Google Tasks one of the best to-do list apps on the market.
