Lists have been a staple in many people’s lives. They are great to remind people of what needs done and help with prioritization. The problem is some people make so many lists they can’t keep track of them all. As soon as lists become unruly, they lose effectiveness and important dates or tasks may be forgotten.

Through Dooity, users can prioritize their lists, create idea reminders, and manage any number of smaller lists.

Dooity was created in 2010 by Romauld Brillout. Brillout is also responsible for other internet applications including Time Tab and Inbox. Much like Brillout’s personal profile page, Dooity embodies that same simplistic, black and white style that seems to be a trademark of Brillout. Today, Dooity helps many people compile their lists and make the most out of this basic organizational tool.
Creating a list is nothing new, and many other websites offer this type of function among many others. What makes Dooity unique is that users can incorporate many lists into one in a simple way. The site is very plain, but this only decreases the amount of time the user needs to learn how to use it. Through Dooity, users can bring together the many small lists in their life and create a single, effective planning tool.
There isn’t much to say about the appearance of Dooity. The site is very bland and uses only white, black text and a hint of grey to highlight buttons. As plain as it looks, the site is still an effective tool. In fact, some users may view the lackluster design as a breath of fresh air compared to some of the frillier, brightly colored alternatives. Users who want a straightforward experience can really appreciate the look of Dooity.
Users do not have to create an account to try Dooity. Instead, they can click the page-wide grey button at the top of the homepage. Users who are ready to sign up can do so right on the homepage as well. A majority of it is made up of the login area and registration form. Creating an account takes no time at all and only requires a username (or email address), and password. After entering the details in the corresponding fields along the left hand side of the page, the user can click the grey “create account” button to finish.
Dooity offers a very simple service with no extra luxuries. The application is effective, but not really up to what a user would expect from a site that wanted a subscription fee or other payment. Anyone can access Dooity for free. There are no fees and no mention of whether there will be in the future.
Dooity is a tool for no nonsense minded people who want to get organized and move on. There is no eye candy on the site, just straight forward functionality. Users with many lists who want to start organizing them could benefit from using Dooity to prioritize and reduce lists.
