Task-based/time-based productivity.

Help me find a productivity app.

Is there a Windows-based productivity app that would allow me to toggle between a task-based and a time-based approach? For example, "purge old files" is on my to-do list. It's going to take me a while, but there is no particular deadline. I want to commit 2 hours to this task tomorrow without regard to how much gets done. "Clean the bathroom" is also on my to-do list. There's no particular duration associated with that task; it just needs to be done tomorrow. I don't want to schedule my tasks into strict time slots; that tends to make me rebel. Android synchronization would be nice but it's not necessary.

After going through about a hundred productivity apps, Teuxdeux is the only one I've stuck with for any length of time.

Simple, flexible, and straightforward. Which are surprisingly rare qualities in most apps.

Have you tried Any.do? It's available as a Chrome extension, iOS and Android. Soon to be a web app too. You can toggle between "time" (set a reminder date) vs "folder" (which is related to context, location, type of thing). Folders are great as it helps me arrange stuff in the following: Home, Work, Shopping List, Blog, Future Reference, Waiting for

It's also free on all platforms. Hope this helps.
