Astrid Gets It Done: Brings Popular Social To-Do List App to the iPhone

Top Android Productivity App Now on iPhone – Enables a Whole New Audience to Accomplish Even More With The Help of Their Friends

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 27, 2011 – Astrid (, a leading Android to-do list app, today brings its popular shared productivity manager to the iPhone. With more than 2.5 million downloads, Astrid has become the app of choice for bringing order to the lives of busy families and discerning power users alike. Now, Astrid delivers to the iPhone what its Android fans have always known and loved: ease of use, a striking design, and powerful productivity features.

Available on the Web, in the Android Market or in the App Store, Astrid tasks can be shared with anyone on any device. Individuals can request advice, encouragement, or those needed nudges to prepare for that vacation or put the final polish on a crucial project. Unlike many sterile reminder tools, Astrid playfully prods users – such as promising that they’ll feel better when they complete a lingering task at hand – in a way that both grabs attention and ensures that nothing falls between the cracks.

“While I love the reminders, we focused on making Astrid beautiful, social, and easy to use for our iPhone release, without compromising features such as calendar integration and repeating tasks,” said Astrid co-founder Jon Paris. “My wife swears Astrid has made me a better husband and often jokes that Astrid nags me so she doesn’t have to!”

David Allen, time-management mentor and author of the best-selling Getting Things Done, encourages readers to put everything into a system they can trust. Astrid is that system for many who add tasks through email integration, on the Web site, through speech-to-task recording and via the Android app. Astrid users have already completed over 29 million tasks. With iPhone reminders and list sharing, Astrid is poised to empower even more people to get more done with help from friends.
