2) The easy and limited way to go: To Do List Apps
For each smartphone and operating system, there are now many solutions in the form of simple to do apps. These apps are syncing over the cloud and therefore already offer a big advantage over the use of Excel. For extremely basic task management operations, such as following shopping lists, remembering song titles or managing other small tasks, these apps may be enough, as tasks are captured easily and quickly. However, these apps usually have the same drawback: you cannot enter a due date or there is no calendar available, in which the tasks could be collected. This means that the apps cannot be used for any professional project or over the long-term. Tasks can indeed be managed with this kind of apps, but essential task management features as prioritization or due dates are not supported.
