The best apps to create to-do lists on Android

25 mayo, 2021

Currently, Google offers you different options to create task and project lists, from Google Calendar to Gmail, through the Google Assistant itself. But without a doubt, the two quintessential apps for that feature are Google Tasks and Google Keep.

It is precisely with them that we started this compilation. In it, we gather those that, in our opinion, are the best applications that exist in Google Play to help us organize our time creating to-do lists, whether they are from work or if it is our personal projects. If you know of any other that is essential for you, do not forget to tell us in the comments.

The best apps to keep track of your habits

Google Tasks

This minimalist design app landed in 2018 and quickly became one of the simplest applications to write down the tasks that we have pending. It allows adding subtasks within these tasks, as well as adding basic details such as date, time and others. It also stands out for its complete integration with Gmail and Google Calendar.

The Google notes application, which is part of the Android application package, is also one of the best task managers, although it has certain limitations when it comes to professional teamwork. When opening a new card in Google Keep, it offers the option to add check boxes, colored labels, handwritten annotations, subtasks and many more options. Special mention for the option of reminders according to the location, which alerts us when we arrive at a specific place.
