Go For It – A Modern To-Do List with a Timer

Go For It – A Modern To-Do List for Linux
Written by Martins D. Okoi

There are already a good number of to-do list applications for all OS platforms, but this one is different. It has a stylish inbuilt timer.

Among the many other projects created by Manuel Khel, Go For It! is a stylishly modern to-do list productivity app with an inbuilt timer that helps you keep track of your current tasks.

The app has three main panels, To-Do which contains your list; Timer, which is where the inbuilt timer lives in; and Done, which lists your completed tasks designed with a strikethrough.

Go For It!‘s to-do lists are stored in the Todo.txt format which makes synchronisation across mobile devices simple; and also allows the possibility of editing lists using other front-end apps like Todo.txt.

Mind you, Go For It! automatically archives completed tasks to the done list. Watch the video below to see a hands-on explanation of its workflow:

Features in Go For It

  • A stylish modern and responsive UI.
  • Cross-mobile device synchronisation.
  • Integration with other front-ends, like my Todo.txt Kupfer Plugin.
  • FOSS – Free and Open Source.

You can install Go For It! using its official Launchpad PPA to get its .deb packages for Ubuntu distros >= 14.04 but we recommend that you use the terminal to add the PPA so you can get automatic updates:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:go-for-it-team/go-for-it-daily 
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install go-for-it

Manuel is hoping for people to maintain and improve the Windows branch, as well as create packages for other GNU/Linux distributions and OSX so if you are interested in giving a helping hand you can contribute to the Open Source project hosted on GitHub.
