Kyith 4 Posted January 11, 2012 Share Posted January 11, 2012 The most pleasant news that i read sometime ago was that Phil Libin telling business insider that To Do which have been popular is coming. Having said that I wonder how people envision their Do functionality will be shaped Evernote, the popular note-taking app that wants to be "your external brain" has recently been adding more apps to its roster: it first bought the popular screenshot/sketching app Skitch, and yesterday released two new apps, Evernote Hello (a contacts manager) and Evernote Food which is, well, like Evernote for food. What's coming next? We asked Evernote CEO Phil Libin point-blank if to-do lists, which are a popular use for Evernote, are coming. "To-do lists are coming," he said after taking a deep breath. While Libin gave us the traditional line Silicon Valley startups always trot out about not wanting to "kill" anyone or "seeing the world in a zero-sum way", we're sure this will give cold sweats to the legions of to-do apps like Remember The Milk, Things, OmniFocus and others. So many people already use Evernote to organize their lives that, if it's as well thought-out as Evernote's other apps, it will get many people to use it. Libin also took pains to stress that it wouldn't look and feel like traditional to-do list apps. "I don't want a to-do app, I want a DO app. I don't want a list," Libin said. Perhaps it will look like OneTask, the productivity app we use whose utter simplicity has made this writer more productive. Here's how it work To do have always been implemented differently but they can be generalize into the following funtionality A detailed task with a due date, possibly a start date with a note A status field Reminder functionality Repeating and scheduling of task Generic Tagging functionality Projects Subtasking to 2 or more levels Cloud syncing every where I am thinking Evernote will have other ideas and it will probably touch on 1,2,3,4,8 thats all. what do you guys think Link to comment
