How to keep life organized: best to-do and task list apps for Android
Subtasks are the strength of this easy to use, clean to-do app, and if it had scrollable option and voice note directly from the widget, it would take the Android cake.
You can add many layers of subtasks, rearrange by sliding them up and down, and they appear in the variety of widgets that ProDo sports, complete with the notes describing them. The usual prioritization, reminders and voice tasks are present, and it also syncs with Google Tasks without having to pay extra. Best of all, the free version offers full functionality, and $1.99 are meant as a donation only, but it is money very well spent indeed, as the app sports an abundance of features.
The clean, minimalistic interface has options for voice tasks, predictive text and powerful Facebook and Twitter integration. The new Any.DO Moment option plans you day effortlessly with a few color-coded taps, and the daily schedule even nests in the notification bar, if you don't want to occupy space with the excellent scrollable widget, and there are four more widget types to choose from.
You can checkmark finished tasks directly from the widget, and GTasks offers a lively, yet simple and very easy to use interface, with all bells and whistles like voice notes and quick note taking. With the Premium version you can have themes, pattern lock, and batch add to-dos for faster performance.
The added value with Astrid is that you can share tasks with other users, delegate and set reminders for them, making it very social - nothing bonds better than splitting chores, they say. The Power Pack adds more widgets, including the all-important for a task list app scrollable one.

Saw the Google keep at the play store page and downloaded it. So far I am liking it. I use the already installed to do app on my phone too.
