Dorisapp.com was originally designed by Seagull Systems for internal use, but proved to be so useful that they decided to market and release it to the public. For those who need the options Doris provides, this is a great tool, but like most task management tools, one size does not fit all.
One of the best ways to test any software application, especially browser-based/online apps, is just by looking at the UI. A simple, effective, and powerful user interface makes for a highly-useful program in my book. For me, this is why Google beats MSN, for instance.
Doris definitely has a UI based on simplicity and effectiveness. It’s got enough features to make any busy life’s to-dos organized. That said, Doris is not a group or team tool, so you’re not likely to find it useful to keep your team project organized.
While still in beta, this is an extremely well-made and functioning application. Using it is as simple as things can get: stuff on the âˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â‰ˆÃ¬tomorrowâˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨Â¬Ã¹ group automatically move to âˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â‰ˆÃ¬todayâˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨Â¬Ã¹ when a new day rolls in. Other groupings or individual listings can be drug to âˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â‰ˆÃ¬todayâˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨Â¬Ã¹ or âˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â‰ˆÃ¬tomorrowâˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨Â¬Ã¹ (or whatever others you’ve created) and dropped there, to become part of that group. Individual items can be checked off as âˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â‰ˆÃ¬completeâˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨Â¬Ã¹ and are then archived into your history.
Think of Doris as Delicious for task management. Future developments include the ability to share tasks/lists with contacts, email status reports, and an iPhone sync-up.
Most people with busy lives will likely find Doris to be highly useful for daily task management that requires no collaboration. Best of all, Dorisapp.com is free.
