Tips releases Chrome extension that links with kick ass to do list app for Android

June 3, 2012 | by Andrew Kameka



Any.Do ranks among the best Android to do list managers around. The gesture-based task manager that we raved about is simple but sophisticated enough to match most competitors, and it also syncs with Google Tasks.

One of the few potholes in the Any.Do system was the lack of a web client to view and adds tasks. While it’s incredibly useful to be able to link with a Google Tasks account, adding new items from the GCal or Gmail websites hasn’t always been the smoothest process. That’s no longer a concern thanks to a new Chrome extension that always puts Any.Do within a mouse’s reach on the desktop.

Any.Do’s new Chrome extension rests in the top right corner, so it’s easy to create new tasks that may come to you based on email correspondence or web browsing. The extension features autocompletion to suggest what you might need, as well as notes, priority, and reminders associated with each task. The extension then syncs with the Any.Do Android app to ensure smooth task management on any device.

The great thing about the Any.Do Chrome extension is that it allows for the continued sync with Google Tasks (as long as you set-up sync through an Android device), so users don’t have to abandon GTasks. A more complete HTML5 web client is on the way, but the the Chrome extension is available for use now. Download Any.Do for Chrome and then grab the Android app from Google Play to gain control of your to do list.
