Five for Friday: Apps to keep track of your To-Dos.

Literally everyone on the planet has a list of things to do; whether it’s tucked away mentally, carefully written in a notebook, scribbled on the back of a rogue receipt in your pocket, or tracked in your phone, everyone has a To-Do List. As such, I thought I’d share a small sample from the wildly varied selection of To-Do List applications in the Google Play Store.  The following selection covers a few different styles of lists, from the conventional  (Any.do) to the robust (Todoist) to the radical (Habitica).

So, without further babbling from your host, I present to you AndroidGuys’ Five for Friday; To Do Lists.
