Do Not Forget is a « catch-all » web application for things you need to do. It’s great to plan your workload for the next few days.

However, DNF does not want to be your life’s to-do list manager, which would require management decisions from you (usually based on « lists » or « projects »). Ouch, that’s too complex and better fits tools like Trello, Wunderlist, Google Keep et al. Instead, DNF aims to be as simple as possible. The best way to use it is to have it in a pinned tab.

Best use is to keep it in a pinned tab, opened at all time. Also, add it to your "launch page" via your browser settings.

So, when your life gifts you with another thing to do, instead of writing it on another post-it that can be lost, instead of wondering for which project or what list it belongs to, you just write it down. And when you’ve done it, well,  erase it. Simple.

It works out of the box, saving the data on your browser. If you work on more than one computer (laptop or mobile), you can use your Facebook, google or github account to have it automagically synchronized across all your browsers.

I’ve always been a GTD guy and uses Trello to manage projects. DNF is the nice little interface I needed to keep track of what’s immediately in front of me.

Benefits

Useful: it keeps you on top of what you need to do.

Easy : A no-learning curve experience: at its core, it’s a text editor in a browser that automatically synchronises itself across all your devices.

Free : It’s a small personal project I did because I needed it. I’m just glad if it helps you too.

Roadmap

  • better handle URLs
  • add a “to read” and “to watch” lists
  • less UI if user is using the sync via his social account.
  • Allow to share your list with others.
  • make it work offline via manifest.

Go ahead, give it a spin and let me know how it fares for you.
