      What’s the best tool for those of us with ADD wiring for planning and organising work, getting things done, and so forth that actually work? I’m speaking about web-browser plug-ins and applets designed for tablets and smart phones.

      Does anyone use any favorites that they swear by (vs “swear at”)?

      To start it off, I use ToDoist for priority matrix planning, which seems to work well.

      Note: I’m an android user (former iPhone user). Some of these apps may be available on both platforms.

      TimeWinder I use this for creating timed routines to get me though repetitive daily routines quickly without distractions.

      Accomplish I use this for scheduling when I need help determining what I can fit into the time I have.

      7 Weeks This is a “49 days” grid for helping to establish new habits.

      2Do This is my primary todo list.

      Lisitng it! I like this for nested lists but with no sync it’s less useful than 2Do.

      Pomotodo This is a pomodoro timer that lets me create a list and displays one item at a time. I sometimes like the ticking clock to keep me on task.

      OverDrive I listen to audiobooks from my libraries every day.

      Out of Milk Shopping lists.

      I’ve just started using a habit building app called Productive that is really good. I line habits up into morning and evening routines that both get me going and wind me down respectively, and I’m actually getting regular housework done and avoiding the usual cleaning/clutter overload.

      I’m not sure about Android though! It doesn’t say on the website but the button might go to th e Google Play store on your phone? (It goes to the Apple App Store on my iPhone).
