Hehe. You cannot run away from your tasks; Any.do is everywhere. There’s a smart phone app (Android and iOS), desktop, web, and tablet version. If you love Google Chrome just like me, there’s an Any.do extension also. The extension/add-on is not available on Opera mini or FireFox.

But that’s not all. You could also set-up re-occurring reminders.

Any.do app lets you set-up location based tasks. For example, you could set-up a schedule to eat hamburgers at Mcdonalds. Immediately you get to Mcdonalds, this amazing app reminds you; hey go grab some burger.
You definitely have to leave your GPS on for this function to work.
This feature lets you share tasks with your team, friends or course mates. Everybody knows what has to be done.
I actually love this one feature. Any.do moments is a unique feature that shows you all the tasks you have for the day in an appealing way. The Any-do moment feature will offer you to delete, reschedule or mark your tasks as done.
So yesterday you were so high-spirited and you were busy scheduling yourself with loads of tasks. With Any.do moments, you can delete or reschedule some tasks when your adrenaline comes down.
Missed Call Feature
I didn’t know what to call this feature so I just named it the “Missed Call Feature”.
When you get a missed call, any.do pops up with an option to either dismiss, call later, call now or send a text message. Some people don’t like this feature; don’t worry, it can be disabled.
Connects with Amazon Alexa
Amazon Alexa is a digital assistant made by Amazon Inc. It works with the Alexa Echo devices. When you combine Any.do with the power of Alexa, you get things done hands-free.
You could do the following tasks with this feature;

Let’s say want to read an email later, you can schedule the email to whenever you want to read it by sending it to the Any.do app. You could also set-up to-dos by sending a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org from the email you used to register on the app; the subject of the message will be the to-do name while the contents of the message will be the notes.
