    "Sometimes we all need a little bit of help to organize and manage our daily schedules. That's why this app can be helpful for everyone. Using Todoist, you can add tasks to complete later and even collaborate with other users."


The first tools used by early humans were the hunting club and sharpened stone? The sharpened stone was being used for cutting and killing at first. It then became the first writing instrument used by cavemen. They would scratch pictures on walls to represent the events of their daily lives. Record-keeps used these symbols to represent words and sentences. These pictographs were first written on clay. Around 400 B.C., the Greek alphabet came and began to replace pictographs. It was also the first script written from left to right and became the standard and is being followed to this day. The Greeks used a writing stylus made of metal, bone or ivory to placemarks upon wax-coated tablets. These were later replaced by the plant-fiber paper and quill pen. These two things set the foundation for what would be the tools that we use to get work done.

Writing is a part of our lives whether it's for creative, professional, or personal use. Advancements in technology and the invention of smart mobile devices happened very quick. Some of the conveniences that it brought substituted the use of the pen and paper. Smartphone apps replicated tasks that we would usually do with a pen and paper. There are times that they are even better and more intuitive than the traditional way. A good example of this is with how we take down notes. Note-taking apps have replaced the old but still fun use of sticky notes. To do list widget apps have replaced that yellow legal pad that we love to use so much to make lists and plan out tasks. Our productivity and efficiency have increased in recent years. We have these apps and technology to thank for that.

    "I like the app, mostly because of the widget that's included for the home screen. This makes it pretty easy to add a new task right from my home screen, and syncs with all my Google accounts. Good app, though I tend to get notifications a little later than expected."

    "This is a great tool for creating to-do lists. I like how there are friendly reminders and that it is free to join. I see that you can upgrade if you want but I don't think that there isn't a need to upgrade. The purpose is to get rid of the old traditional way of making to-do lists and this app does just that. "
