A lot of people think that they don’t really need to-do lists, or apps that tell them how to organize their lives. Most such people can turn into believers though, once they have given to-do lists a shot for a few days. In the past, you might have had to keep a paper list glued to your refrigerator door to make sure you aren’t forgetting any important chores but this is the digital age. Most of us have our smartphone handy at almost all times, so having a to-do app on it is the ideal solution. If you own an Android, there are many task management apps available in the Play Store. The important thing is to choose the Android todo list app that you really need. To help you with this choice, we have compiled a list of the top 15 Android todo list apps out available in the Play Store.
Our list includes only free apps. Some of the entries require users to create accounts, while others are ready to be used right out of the box. Of course, the list is not exhaustive by any means, and we might add to it later on. One final thing; we have listed apps in the order of our liking for them.
