Become a more productive you, one card at a time.

It’s easy to procrastinate your to-do list without a clear first step. Tasks with large goals can feel impossible to finish.

Doo helps you procrastinate less. Your reminders become cards that are easy to start and easy to finish. The streamlined edit screen encourages you to create tasks that can fit on a digital index card. Each card shows up in a stack — instead of a list — so you can focus on one thing at a time.

Pick a few tasks each day and snooze the rest. Doo helps you create more consistent, sustainable habits. Reduce your anxiety and become a more productive you, one card at a time.

Version 1.5.1
Review by Flipped

Getting Things Done without the Heaviness of other Apps - I LOVE the 'Doo' app. I got it when it first came out & I really appreciate it being both Mac-iphone and the simplicity carries across the too platforms seamlessly. I actually use 'Doo' as a companion app to a heavier GTD app. I manage the big picture of my life in those apps but I use DOO app for the things I need to do for a single day only. Doo is so helpful because it's so easy to swipe through and not get overwhelmed by the 'heaviness' of the bigger apps. It's light & simple and ridiculously inexpensive for keeping a person sane. Thanks to the developer for making this so easy to use and for continuing to develop it. It's a beautiful app and it’s simplicty is why I use it to actually get things done. UPDATE: 10/7/16 - Just keeps getting better. If you’ve been frustrated by various list apps give this a try. Doo has really won me over and I use it almost exclusively now for managing my life - because it’s so simple that I actually use it! Bravo! icloud sync has been rock solid for me between ios & mac. Absolutely Brilliant app.

Review by paglabagla

What does this app do? - I don’t get it. What does this app do that the built in Reminders app doesn’t already do for free? This was a total waste of money. I can’t even get the notification sound to work, so it’s entirely useless even for what the Reminders app already does.

Version 2.1.0
Review by PeytonRG

Delightful App - I’ve been using Doo loyally since February when I tried it out to help managing my studying for college tests. Its interface makes mapping out your upcoming reminders very manageable and clean, and in my opinion the interface is much better than the traditional to-do list or other reminders apps. The developer, Mike, is also incredibly kind and responsive, and truly cares to listen about the opinions of his users. For example, Doo 1.5 had a menu bar mode that was removed in 2.0. Myself and others had conversations with him requesting the feature’s return, and it’s back in 2.1. It’s truly inspiring to see a single person put so much care into developing a great app. I really love this app, and anyone who tries it out will too!

Wonderful and delightful - I wasn’t planning on getting the Mac app, but the iOS version was so wonderful, and the developer is so responsive that I just knew the Mac app would also be fantastic.

Review by Benjamin Vagabond

Developer is Very Responsive to Suggestions - When I download a new app, I usually make notes about what I like and dislike about my first experience with the app. I then send an email containing that info to the developer in the hope that it will be used to improve the product and make it more usable in my situation. In the case of Doo, my email was responded to within hours and the developer responded to every single of my suggestions either asking for more info, letting me know that he will consider a change, or letting me know why he thought a requested change should not be implimented. I’ve had many email exchanges with him and now see many of my suggestions being implemented within months of downloading the app for the first time. That’s unpresidented! I can count on a single hand the number of app developers that are that responsive to input over the last 30 years I’ve been sending suggestions. Great simply elegant app with a developer who seems to have a passion for keeping it simple and effective.
