While this is cool, the thing that amazes me is that people are still trying to figure out to-do lists. Douglas Engelbart in The Mother Of All Demos created a to-do list in 1968 and we're still trying to figure it out. It's interesting that after nearly 50 years, this challenge hasn't been ubiquitously solved. By ubiquitously solved, I mean that everyone has their own tool and there is no tool like Google search for to-do lists that is clearly ahead of the rest. For the most part, the format hasn't changed at all.
True. However, having tried most of the prominent apps in this space, I feel like they are as close to getting it right as anyone has been so far.
Prioritization is such a subjective thing, it's like impossibly difficult to apply standards to it across a product. The discussions I've been in about what "high vs medium vs low" means is brain numbing.
I think in most cases our brain has two priority modes. Important and not important which changes depending on various reasons (stress level, time, tiredness etc.).
This is why in my honest opinion having one priority level which you can easier add and removed depending on the situation you are in works best.
What if you could create a contextually intelligent to-do list. So to the user, they are just adding things to 1 list, but the list is smart enough to determine what context and importance things should be laid out in?
Thats the exact thing I'm building.
This is exciting. Can't wait to have it integrate with Slack and Wunderlist.
