For the second time running, the Israeli Any.Do has been included in the TechCrunch blog’s list of the 20 best mobile apps.
Any.Do allows users to manage their daily schedules by creating a new “to-do” item via voice command, turning unanswered calls into tasks, and synchronizing with other management tools like Google Tasks. The company has won accolades for its simple, intuitive app, as well as for a unique characteristic: tasks can be deleted by being marked or by a slight shake of the phone.
Any.Do launched the app at the end of last year and the iPhone version in June 2012
The app is in impressive company. Out of the 1.2 million mobile applications available for iPhone and Android devices, well-known apps such as Draw Something, Airbnb, Angry Birds in Space, and Instagram also made the blog’s Top 20 list.
The company, founded by Omer Perchik, Yoni Lindenfeld and Itay Kahanahas in 2010, has thus far raised $1 million from the Innovation Endeavors fund, run by Google Chairman Eric Schmidt and Dror Berman, as well as from Blumberg and Genesis funds. It is currently in an additional round of fundraising.
