Android Apps / scheduling to dos on calendar

Ive decided I need less paper in my life. I am a big smart phone user and just switched to Android because the Swype keyboard works better. My calendars are set up through Google calendar and I have entered all my to do lists into gtasks but I cant seem to actually schedule them for a block of time. Since 80% of our stress is supposed to come from the top two things on our to do list I have created an ideal week template and on each work day I have two big chunks of time dedicated to my to do #1 and #2 . . . of course, as I first start this schedule I fear I will have days where I don’t manage to get one of these two things done and I will need to bump the to do to the following day (or perhaps put it back on a list because something else has come up that’s more important) yet I cant seem to find an app that integrates with Google calendar to let me do this.

Outlook allows for this type of scheduling so I am baffled. I have an Android phone and have downloaded Any.Do but that’s not working.

I would also really love an app that helps me keep myself accountable, i.e. would color code those areas of my schedule that I do stick to and do on time so I could get some sort of affirmation/ sense of accomplishment.

I have struggled my whole adult life to get on a routine and could really use some tips, support.

Thank you so much!


I’ve done a ton of research and read a dozen blogs trying to find the perfect app for a todo list manager with custom notifications.  Though I don’t have an android phone, here is a list for you to check out: People have recommended some good ones in the comment section, too. 

The ones that stand out for me are: 1) 2) and 3)

though it was discontinued you should still be able to download it. i am a galaxy note 3 owner. i use the gear to get constant reminders and have a repeating 15 minute timer that runs all day just incase i get stuck on something. here is a screenshot of my phone.

i use evernote, action memo and scrap booker(note only),
floating toucher for instant access to most used apps on any screen.

i prefer to keep my tasks, bills, lists and to dos in astrid and actual appointments on my google calendar.
