We envision a product that we believe will revolutionize the current market. Our aim is not merely to create a commercially viable product but rather to empower individuals. Individuals not slaved to their tasks but ones with the power to efficiently manage their time, all day, everyday. Currently, the task managers out there are heavily dependent on the user decisions. 2Do Now, on the other hand is a smart self-thinking application that not manages but also thinks and decides for the user. It models itself around an individuals needs and eccentricities.
