Astrid Tasks: An excellent Tasks Manager App for Android


Astrid is a simple Tasks manager for Android amongst many others. However I like this tasks manager because is easy to use and provides many useful functions:

Assign a task to you or someone else (using e-mail) by:

  • Date
  • Time
  • Every X Hour-Day-Week-Month-Year
  • Alarm
  • Prioritise your tasks
  • Categorise your tasks
  • Write a short description for each task
  • Reorganise your tasks in your favourite order
  • Synchronise your tasks with your calendar

Moreover when you miss a call, Astrid tasks manager allows you to call now, ignore this call or you can plan this call for later.



My lifestyle is busy. Indeed I’m not only travelling by my own, I also have responsibilities in a few companies I’m working for. Also, my blog takes me a lot of time between photos and videos editing, writing high quality articles in French and English and editing my GPS tracks for each outdoor experiences I lived.

I’m staying every night with a random local too. That means this task takes a certain time before to find someone who accepts to host me. However it is only the first half of this task. I must share my adventures with this person or family since it’s the deal I’ve chosen to stay under their roof. Finally I only have 2hours really free every day between 7am to 11pm, usually after lunchtime.

These 2 hours are reserved for these companies I’m working with or for my blog. It’s why I need a task manager easy to use to well organize my To Do List and do not waste any time. Astrid Task manager is really handy when I must take in consideration the time differences between the countries I’m travelling in and the countries where these companies are located.

If I didn’t have Astrid task manager, I wouldn’t be so efficient and I could loose the interest from these companies I’m working for.

My advice: Don’t be arrogant and organize your tasks with Astrid task manager to give some clarity, space and fresh air to your brain!
