I am a great fan of “To do lists” and just can’t work on anything before planing it ahead. Whether I am writing a new blog post or planning a weekend party with friends, I always have the habit of writing things down – either on paper or in my To do list application.
In the past, I have used several notes management applications like Evernote, Microsoft One Note and Freeware wiki’s but none of them stayed for long. There were varied reasons e.g universal usage, multiple computers, friendly UI and easier management. Online tools like remember the milk, Google Tasks and sometimes Gmail served the purpose well but I soon realized that these applications have overwhelming number of features which are not at all required – if you just want to write down notes or thoughts and nothing else.
If you are like me and looking for a dead simple online tool which can be used for jotting down notes, thoughts and ideas – try ThoughtBox.es
Thoughtboxes is a simple web application that helps you organize all of the things that are important to you. It’s all online so there is nothing to download, and you can access your account from anywhere. Once you are done creating an account with the service, you can start adding a river of Thoughts and add boxes to it.
Each box is nothing but a placeholder for your ideas, thoughts and To-Do’s, so you never forget the task at hand and always remember the important things that need to be done on weekends. Moreover, thoughts and notes of different projects do not get mixed with each other – which is one of the great things about ThoughtBoxes. Your dashboard works just like the iGoogle homepage, you can drag and drop any box to any specific position and organize the “idea segments” acording to priority.
Thoughboxes goes beyond a simple online to do list application, you can quickly share your thoughts and ideas with anyone using the “Share” link. The site has a very simple interface, ideally suited for aged persons and non techie people. I haven’t seen a similar minimalist online to do list app till now
Give ThoughBoxes a try and let us know your thoughts and ideas in the comments.
