Link to Article. ===. A random tweet introduced me to Twos. It looked like a simple to do app initially but, as I discovered, it’s so much more. I began using Twos on February 23rd. But, first, let’s travel to December 31st 2022. Recently on a Zoom, Julia Davies talked about how easy it is to get to the end of a year and wonder what you achieved. How do you track those things? How do you save the small details so that you can review them later? As Julia mentioned this, a lightbulb went on. Twos lists would be perfect to log what I’m grateful for, what makes me happy, and what I’m proud of. A weekly recurring reminder every Friday in Twos will make sure I stay on track. Fast forward to New Year’s Eve and looking back on the past nine months will be as easy as scrolling through the remember this day section. I’ve already begun a public Monthly Log - here’s the one for March. While my original intention was to use this as a fun add on to my newsletter, it will also form part of the annual review. You can see where the inspiration came from! I love lists! I don’t think I’ve come across an app that provides a list function like Twos. Yes, of course there are apps with lists but Twos is a little different. This stems from the Twos philosophy - simply remember things, and all of your things in one place. It’s an app for writing things down. There are top level lists and sublists. These are some of mine:. reminders. daily routine. birthdays. clients (one sublist per client). shopping list. projects (including writing). Lists sit in their own section but, with dates and reminders added, items appear in my Today, together with Calendar events. This is where I manage my day. I also compile a Daily Log. This is different to the one I use in Napkin. I log what I’ve done in Twos and what I think in Napkin. The daily rollover. This, more than anything, makes my to do lists work. Invariably not everything gets done each day. Knowing that an incomplete task will appear tomorrow is a win. A quirky app. Maybe Joe and Parker wouldn’t describe Twos as quirky but I do. And this is precisely why I love Twos. It’s not just a to do app. It’s not just a reminders app. Or a things app. It’s several functions rolled into one. Twos sits at the intersection of productivity and note taking. And this is where it packs a punch, and makes it a terrific app for writers. The formatting is not limited to checkboxes but a range of styles, bullets, dashes, highlights and text. It provides the flexibility to create punchy tasks or longer format documents. It’s one of those apps that you can make your own and that’s what really works for me. If you fancy giving Twos a go, you can get started here. Twos is free to use. You can earn coins to upgrade and add functionality such as hyperlinks, customisation, multiple accounts and adding photos or pay $2 for each additional function. Earning coins is easy - you just use the app!
