Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Support for Apple Watch
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.
Pro Updates have remained free since beginning of time
Unlike many other apps that will release a new paid version when major features get launched, 2Do doesn't resort to that.
