Welcome to the first of a series of small tips for using Done, our iPhone To Do list app.
Rather than just pick a random different color for each of your lists, try and apply a logical system. An example of this might be cold colors (blue & green) for personal tasks, warm colors (red & orange) for work related tasks and neutral colors (black & grey) for everything else.
Some users even use the colors as an additional indicator of priority ie. set up a red list called ‘urgent’, use grey for all your other lists and move tasks into the red list as they become really important. It doesn’t matter what system you use as long as the colors mean something to you.
Using a simple system like this means that when looking at your master list of tasks, it’s easy to see what each item relates to.
