The next in a long line of lists

Published April 4, 2009

I think I might have found it!

I’ve been going on and on about the need for a decent to-do list for a very long time. I’ve tried 37 Signals products, Remember the Milk, all that stuff. Nothing seemed to work.

Now, I’ve found one, and it’s called: Doris.

Yea, I don’t really get the name either, but it’s pretty useful. You can group your list items into as many sections as required, and they recommend having a Today group at the top. What I love is that you can drag and drop items from group to group, within each list, and you can even reorder the groups as you see fit.

The only problem I’ve found with it so far that Ta Da List does better is that if you enter a URL it remains as text, and you have to edit the task to be able to copy and paste. Ta Da List turns the URL into a link, which is particularly useful. However, I have submitted this as feedback, so we’ll see what happens.

Doris is nice, bright and easy to use (that’s a weird sentence). However, I tend to think that about all to do list organisers when I find them. I will let you know if this one sticks.
