Welcome to the latest weekly installment of Wordpreneur Tools Friday. Today, we’ll look at a few resources I’ve used to help with one basic work tool: todo lists. Or just lists in general. Using these lists are pretty much how I like to work and keep on top of the various projects I dirty my hands with, and I really can’t tell you how many different “solutions” I’ve looked at or even used through the years. Can’t tell you either which one you should work with — they all do things a bit differently, and which one suits you pretty much comes down to personal preference. Try these three first — good bet that you’ll like at least one of them. Enjoy!
ColorNote – My favorite app for maintaining and organizing regular and to do lists on my Android smartphone. This one was super easy to figure out how to use, has the features and functionality that matches my preferences and way of working, and is free to boot. Wish there were a way for me to access and manage my data through the Web and any browser, though — I’d likely even pay a decent amount for that ability — but other than that, for wordpreneurs I can’t say enough good things about ColorNote. Highly recommended.

Evernote – Very highly-rated tool everyone seems to be raving about. I just haven’t warmed up to it much (or just yet). Looks like a do everything you could possibly need tool — note taking, todo lists, a Web clipper, etc. — with your data accessible from pretty much everywhere — your phone, tablet, computer, etc. I just haven’t been terribly impressed by its todo list feature, and since that’s my style of working, you can see how I can’t get past being lukewarm about Evernote at best, despite, again, all the thumbs ups about it. Could be just the right tool for you, though, so definitely do check it out.
Todoist – If anything comes a very close second to my love of ColorNote, it would be Todoist. I just find ColorNote more my style. But if that weren’t around, I’d have Todoist running on my smartphone, no doubt about that at all. In fact, I do use Todoist on my laptop, or pretty much anywhere I can access the Web with a browser. Because that’s one thing Todoist has that ColorNote hasn’t delivered: a centralized online “cloud” storage area accessible from everywhere. I’ve been using the free version to date, but there’s a Premium (pay) service with more oomph for a reasonable annual fee. Recommended.
Have a great weekend!
