Todo for iPad – Great Looking To-do App at a Great Price

Todo for iPad

Todo for iPad is a great looking and full-featured to-do app for the iPad and iPhone, with good desktop and online sync options …

I’m a huge fan of to-do apps.  I rely heavily on task lists to manage my work and even much of my life in general. Todo for iPad is the first task manager app that has really caught my eye in quite a while, as I already have a solution that works very well for me in this area (Things).

I liked the look and sound of the app so much when I saw its iPad version released, that I’ve been trying it out for a couple of days.

Quick Look: Pages for iPad

My brother plays good!

The idea behind this review of Pages for iPad was to see how quickly someone could get something done without having used it before. In the interest of full disclosure, I have used Pages on Mac, so your rate of adoption may vary. I tested two different types of documents, a text document and a poster.

Once I opened the attachment in Mail I was given the option to “Open In Pages.” It shows as a button in the top right corner of the document if you have Pages installed. Continue reading
