MyLifeOrganizer is one of the most complete organizer for Android

I'm pretty sure you haven't tried an organizer like this. It's probably the most complete tasks organizer regarding features and managing options.

Besides the basic tools like setting events, alarms, calendar warnings, notes, etc. there are other many features that I've seen in specific apps but not in a generic comprehensive organizer app. MyLifeOrganized put all of them together. It allows you to organizer your tasks into projects and break down large tasks into reasonably sized actions. It's fully integrated with GTD (Getting Things Done®)·

You can sort tasks by different criteria and filter them, bookmark tasks and many other management options. Besides tasks, you can set goals (weekly, monthly goals) and monitor your progress. However, what I really liked was 'nearby' and 'sync with windows' features.

"Nearby" provides a list of actions for your current GPS locations. That's it, it lets you know when you're close to a place where you have something scheduled. "Sync" allows you to transfer your tasks to your PC (Windows) using MyLifeOrganized (MLO) cloud service, or via Wi-Fi sync.

There are themes, locations, different views, and inbox of tasks among many others things. For this reason, it's a bit difficult to get the hang of it. However, if you really need these amount of features, you will do it quite fast. It's user-friendly UI and good-looking layout contributes to that purpose.

If you want to have comprehensive control over your tasks, appointments, projects, goals... and let everything tied, this is definitely your app. High recommended.

Developer's original description available here
MyLifeOrganized is an easy-to-use, yet powerful and intuitive to-do list, task manager and outliner. Designed to strike a balance between the simple and the complex, MyLifeOrganized succeeds where competitors have failed! Using an unlimited task hierarchy and the ability to focus on subsections, MyLifeOrganized allows you to build a task management system to suit your needs.

Break down large tasks to achieve a collection of reasonably sized actions that are easy and unambiguous. Organize your tasks into projects and assign contexts. If required, set a due date, priority, and dependency. Once loaded with your information, MyLifeOrganized goes to work and prepares a simple task list containing only those next actions which require your immediate attention. This list is updated automatically once you complete a task, change context or move to another location.

Sync wirelessly with the world-class Windows Desktop version of MyLifeOrganized* to add even more power to your task management. You can sync using Wi-Fi or the Cloud service. Using the MLO Cloud service**, you can sync with multiple computers at home and the office and share a single task list or collaborate with other people.

Most MLO features are FREE forever and the free version is fully usable, but many users find that the advanced features in the Pro version provide a valuable productivity boost. Please be sure to try out the advanced features during your Pro trial period and consider upgrading to Pro (using in-app purchase) before the trial period expires.

    First of all, I love the spin wheels. If you want to take them away, at least make them optional. They make moving stuff around much more natural. In fact, the stock android alarm clock lost most functionality to me when they switched from spin wheels to select format. Spin wheels are just more convenient as an interface on a touch screen. When using a mouse (on a desktop) I'd prefer a mouse

    I'm a recent convert from an iPhone to a Note 3 and I was searching for the equivalent of OmniFocus. Several reviews on MLO recommended it as a comparable app. In my opinion, it's not only comparable, but in some ways it is superior. The app does have a leaving curve, but the flexibility, power & dynamic design are all worth it.

    I like this easy-to-use, powerful outliner and the price for the Pro version is fair.

    Did you forget about your android user base?!

    I'm in the process of transferring my unwieldy list of tasks from Outlook to (syncing with) MLO on the desktop, and running the Android version alongside it. So far it seems to have all the flexibility I could want, and it's encouraging me to prioritise so hopefully I'm concentrating on the right stuff at the right time in the right place. The desktop app handles GTD contexts better than anything

    Sick of Android being left out in the cold. 7 ipad updates while still promising an android version 2 which has never materialised, I no longer use this software.

    I think it is not the first time users have highlighted that certain things like a calendar date selector, something we use every time we enter, wasn't incorporated. If they can bridge these ux gaps then they are good. Sadly they do not. Why does the fonts need to be so big!
