Any.do’s widgets give you the ability to manage your tasks right from your home screen – on mobile and desktop! Whether you’re using an Android device or iOS, you can easily access your tasks and events on-the-go by adding one of our widgets to your home screen. The widget will sync with the app automatically, so anything you add or modify is immediately reflected in the app and across all other platforms.

On Android, you can also choose from 4 different widgets, raging in size and functionality – accommodating your every need. Aside from the home screen widget, we also offer on this platform a Quick Add bar that allows you to add tasks directly from your notification center (Android curtain) as well as quickly review what’s your next task.

Via our Windows and Mac apps, we offer easily accessed tray-icons to quickly add tasks while working in other windows.
