Every day, there’s a new gadget or a supposedly better version of an old one. We’re surrounded by widgets and programs promising to make it easier for us to commute, communicate, clean and more.
But technology hasn’t really answered the big-picture question: With all these time-saving devices around, why are we still so busy?
It may seem like an odd lead-in when we’re talking about yet another piece of technology. But Toodledo isn’t just another online organizer. This productivity tool doesn’t just help you plan your day with reminders and lists, though it does that exceptionally well.
It recognizes disorganization is a human failing that can be fixed, and it does that by training you into adopting better time management habits. To do its job, Toodledo plays well with all the other devices you’re already attached to, as well as most of the calendar apps and email accounts you might be using.
Once it’s set up and synced up, it can give you reminders about important tasks no matter where you are. You can specify which devices you want to get alerts on, and even get location-specific reminders about upcoming tasks.
For example, it can alert you to cross a future shopping item off your list if you happen to be near the mall. Alerts can be set to recur weekly, daily, monthly or on any schedule you like.
But as we’ve said, it does more than just send out alerts. You can organize big projects with an Outline feature that lets you get a broad overview, create a hierarchy for individual steps and even delegate them to others.
Lists that you make can be flagged with specific categories or time stamps. There’s also a robust note-taking section that gives you the power to turn your idle thoughts into actionable plans.
But the real long-term benefit to Toodledo is in its Habits feature. This not only lets you set goals for fitness, life and work, but it helps you achieve them by showing you what you’re best at accomplishing — and what you might be procrastinating on.
It’s a great program overall that comes with 10 GB of file storage. A five-year membership to Toodledo Plus is now available for more than 75% off the retail price.
