SplenDO: To Do List With Reminder For Android

What is SplenDO

SplenDO is a perfect to do list app for Android developed by Splend Apps. It is very convenient for managing all your tasks: you can create separate task lists and set up reminders for each task. The great advantage is that you can customize a lot of settings to your taste.

How to use SplenDO To Do List App on Android

How to create a task

There are several ways to create a task in SplenDO:

1. Tap the “+” icon

This way allows you to assign due date, time and select a list.

2. Quick bar

Use this feature to quickly add a task in one click. In this case you will be able only to give a name to the task. All other options will be set by default. The task will be added to the currently selected list without due date.

3. Batch Mode

This is the easy way to add several tasks at once to the current list. The thing is you don’t need to tap “New” and “Save” for each task. It can be very useful if you are afraid to forget your ideas while typing tasks.

Tap on “Add in Batch Mode”:

batch mode 1

Type all your tasks in the list and tap on “Save”:

batch mode 2

All your tasks have been added to the list with one tap:

batch mode 3

How to delete a task

There are also several ways to it.

1. Select a task by tapping and holding it and then tap the “Delete” icon:

splendo delete task

2. Tap a task to go to its properties. Then tap the tripple dot icon and select “Delete”:

splendo delete task 2

Task Lists

You can add tasks to different lists (such as “work”, “shopping”) or create your own lists. So you will never have a ridiculous mixture of completely dissimilar tasks like ‘buy milk’ and ‘find a job’ in one list.

To move a task to another list:

  • Tap on the task.
  • Tap on the “Task List” drop-down menu (or tap the icon on the right to create a new list):
    splendo move to another list 1
  • Select another task list:splendo move to another list 2
  • Tap the Save icon:splendo move to another list 3

How to set up a reminder for a task

If you want to create a reminder, follow these steps:

  • tap on the task to enter its properties.
  • specify the Due date and Time.
  • tap on the Save icon.

  • Go to Settings and choose when you wish to be notified about the task:

You will be reminded about your task on time. You can edit the task, set another time or mark it as finished:

Operating with a group of tasks

Tap and hold on a task to select it. In such a way you can mark several tasks at once to delete them altogether or mark them as finished.

Synchronization with Google

SplenDO supports syncing with Google. If you wish to remove Google Account just go to “Settings” and select “Sync disabled” in “Sync mode”:

splendo remove account

What I turned off In Splendo To Do List App

In general, I like default settings of the app. But nevertheless I changed a few of them.

  1. I have removed SplenDO from notification panel (Tap the gear icon and untick the flag “Status bar”)
    status bar 1status bar 2
  2. I have turned off the Day summary function (Tap the tripple dot icon, select “Settings”, set “Day summary” to “Disabled”)
  3. I have disabled the Voice feature, because I don’t want the voice to pronounce the name and the time of my task (Tap the tripple dot icon, select “Settings”, find the “Notifications” area and untick the checkbox named “Voice”)splendo turn off voice and day summary

  1. This is a really nice and easy to-do list app! Your tips on how to tune it are also great. Thank you for the review!

  2. I wanat to use it on desktop too. Do you have desktop version?
    Please add it. Its very important. And alos Email function. I want to have an option in settings to have the task emaioled to me as a reminder. Thank you so much.

    1. I agree so much! Please make an online version that syncs with the app! This app is amazing, but it would be so much better if I could also access it from my computer

  3. I like the app. There is a large blank space at the bottom half of the page. I would like to use that area for comments or lists, but I cannot figure out how to make an entry there or raise the keyboard. Suggestions?

    1. Tap on the dots icon in the upper right corner and select “Task lists”. Here you can delete or edit your lists.

  4. I am using Splendo and really love it but I have a problem. After using Spendo for a few weeks, at my son’s prompting, I loaded the Google Keep program. (Works similar to Spendo but has too many options-no simplicity.) Anyway, after uninstalling Goggle Keep, Splendo will no longer add tasks via voice command. This ruins the best part of Spendo for me. Can you help me turn the voice command back on? I did reinstall Splendo but it did not change it. I don’t want to uninstall it because I would lose what I have on my lists . . . unless it is absolutely necessary. Thank you for your help.

    1. I’m having the same problem. Did you ever figure out how to enable voice notifications? They worked fine for months, then stopped. I really need to “hear” the notifications again. Thanks.

  5. Hello, I have the app installed already and I really like it a lot. But I have a big problem with it. Some of my Task Lists dispersar from the app. I sent emails to support asking how do I recover those task lists from my back up in google account but no answer yet. Searching from internet for any help, I found your page. My question is, do you know how to get those task lists back from the back up from google? I have very, very importan info and appointments there!
    Please help.

  6. I need to have a hard copy of my lists and tasks. No way to send to my email. Please address or advise how to do this.

  7. I used to use this app and loved it, but in the last few months, it has started using pop-up ads that play video and sound, that overrides your phone sound settings. Unfortunately, it is useless now, as I don’t want music blasting out in a meeting!

    1. I have exact same “surprises” on another SplendApps app where I use free version. You are absolutely right: pop-up full screen ads with loud sound (or with sound as such) are unacceptable. But the app is so good that I advise you to pay once and remove ads. I use paid version and I enjoy using it every day.

      If SplendApps developers read this, please, consider removing shoking ads from free versions of your apps.

  8. I want to sync Spendo with my Google calendar – When I add a task in Splendo, I wish that it should get reflected in my google calendar too. Is there a way to achieve this? Using the sync option in settings is not getting this done.

    1. Aashaar, sorry, I don’t use Google calendar. I advise you to ask your question on the app’s page in the Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.splendapps.splendo
      P.S. But can say that unfortunately I had problems with syncing SplenDO when I used the app with the same Google account on two different Android devices. After some time of using I found out that I have different quantity of tasks on my devices. Some tasks were already done but were displaying on one device, some new and important ones were missing on BOTH devices at all. I decided to remove the app from one Android device and since that time I don’t have any mess. Everything seems to sync well.

  9. Hello – I recently purchased a new android phone [Galaxy Note8] I am trying to move my tasks over from my old phone [Galaxy S5]. I did the Auto Sync. It moved over the “finished” tasks and 2 “personal” tasks. I have 30 tasks listed under the “default ” list. How do I move those over to the new phone? I even tried the manual sync and all it did was make duplicate lists. Two of Personal, shopping, wishlist, and work. Please help me I don’t want to have to enter everything again if I don’t have to.

  10. Hello, thanks a lot for this.
    I wanted to ask how to set on android phones, on desktop widget – the default home page on widget? Because i see my whole tasks, but i want to see only specific list? Please answer me.

  11. Hi, I purchased this app, but I would like to know how to shift dates forward if I missed a couple days. I’ve got several tasks that are the same that I do every day like example working out, but I’m not going to workout 3 times in day if I missed 2. Any ideas? Thank you
