Must Have App for Getting Stuff Done

First, let me start by saying if you have an iPhone you may want to go read another blog post because this app is only available on Androids. This is not a sponsored or affiliate post it is simply just me gushing about how much I love the Bright To-Do app. I am a girl who lives and dies by a to-do list which very well maybe why I love this app so much.


Here’s what I love:


  • It's 100% free
  • No ads
  • Create Recurring Habits 
  • Create Daily To-Do List
  • Create Long Term Goals using with Weekly, Monthly, and Yearly To-Do List
  • Calendar View which displays your for full schedule
  • Time Notification Reminder option for every task
  • Categorize your task with Colors
  • Connect to Google Calendar - pull any appointments or task you may have on your calendar
  • Backup or Restore your Content on Google Drive



What I don’t love:



  • Not a notes section
  • Available on app only, there's no desktop option.


Honorable mentions:

To Do Ist - Free and Paid Version so of course the free version has limitations



In June, I started using Bright To-Do instead of my Staples Arc Planner. I grew tired of having to write, rewrite, and carry multiple notebooks to organize and create my to do list. Now I know that may sound crazy but there are days when my priorities change or I don't complete everything on my to-do list. When that happens I have to basically transpose the task to another day, which is aggravating and time consuming.




If your a creative you can probably relate because your priorities change from day to day. You may have a plan for the week but if you have a opportunity arise you likely begin to rethink your plan and rearrange your schedule accordingly. Doing this by hand on paper day by day began to take up too much time. I tried 3 different apps before finding and falling in love with the Bright To-do which was by far the best option. 

It took me about 3 hours to transfer over my entire schedule from my planner. As I do batch all my content therefore I had to move my batch plan for June-December 2017 from my planner to the app. I also added my yearly goals, monthly goals, and habits. I am a complete plan nerd so I likely had more content to move than most people, which is fine by me. I was happily surprised when I signed in with Google and seen my Google Calendar has been syncing in automatically.  


What digital planning tools do you use?
