Voo2do was included today in a comparison of online to-do list apps at TechCrunch. TechCrunch is a popular blog about the latest cool technology stuff, and I’m happy Voo2do made it on there. A big thanks to our many devoted users!
Voo2do has been selected as RedOrbit’s Site of the Day. RedOrbit appears to be a news portal for science and tech, apparently created in November and doing OK but not huge traffic. Their congratulations email included a handy logo and instructions to link back to them, but voo2do isn’t featured prominently on their site; in [...]
Voo2do is mentioned in a Newsweek International article by Daren Briscoe called Smoother Surfing. It’s also a favourite of the writers at Gizmag. Thanks for the positive mentions, guys!

Voo2do recently got a couple of mentions in media that haven’t before, to my knowledge, noted it. The first is a real dead-trees paper, although I can’t tell whether the Site Seeing column in the 8/19/2005 St. Petersburg Times is actually printed or an online-only feature. Here’s what author Jules Allen said: PDAs are passe, [...]
The Inforedesign blog, a Russian blog on (as far as I can tell) web design, has a mention of voo2do and a few comments. One of them is from someone who also emailed me to ask about voo2do’s problems handling international characters. Which I think is almost fixed…
