Pro Offers detailed options
Adding a task can be as simple or complicated as you like. A to-do list entry can simply consist of its title, or you can also add notes, recurrence, set a due date, tag a location, schedule an alarm, priority (low, medium, high, starred) and tack on a URL or photo. You can even make an audio recording with voice notes. And each list is sortable by a number of criteria, including priority and due date.
2Do conforms to your workflow instead of forcing you to conforming into some preset workflow. It helps to accommodate your workflow through a series of features including tags, batch editing, configurable presets, and the ability to quickly add tasks at any time.
