As I write this post there is a new Evernote Task Manager that is awaiting approval in the Apple App Store. For a long time now Evernote lovers have been begging for some type of To Do Manager for Evernote.
While there are many hacks for a to do manager inside Evernote, all of them have their limitations. Slowly but surely, developers are beginning to create to do apps that sync with Evernote. I personally still have my eyes on ZenDone as I am curious how that will develop over time.
What Exactly is EverDo.It?
I recently came across EverDo.It and I must say it is intriguing. It is based on Getting Things Done (GTD) and follows that methodology. What grabbed my attention is the fact that you can highlight a text anywhere in your Evernote note and turn it into a To Do Task inside the EverDo.It App.
You can also sync the task to your calendar creating a due date (another request many Evernote users want).
The workflow for EverDo.It can be summed up in 4 steps.
1. Create a note in Evernote.
2. Sync your note in EverDo.It
3. Create single or multiple tasks (to dos) from your Evernote note.
4. Create projects and finish tasks.
Here is a simple graphic that explains the process:
