Popular to-do list application Any.Do has raised $3.5 million in new funding to continue helping people get things done no matter the device.
San Fransico-based Any.Do competes closely with apps like Wunderlist, Clear, and Remember the Milk. All four of these will have a great opportunity to pounce for users of Astrid, which was recently acquired by Yahoo and will likely shut down in the next few months.
While I’m a frequent user of Wunderlist, I also love Any.Do’s design and feature set. It’s free to use, simple, inputs tasks with your voice, and syncs across syncs iOS, Android, and Chrome apps. A web app is “coming soon.”
“In the past few months we’ve seen a lot of activity in the personal productivity space, and we are thrilled to have such an amazing group of people who believe in our vision and want to help us turn it into a reality,” Any.DO founder and CEO Omer Perchik said in a statement. “We are looking forward to continue simplifying people’s lives by bringing beautiful design and deep data analysis to the core apps that people use each and every day.”
The funding round was led by Genesis Partners with the participation of existing investors including Eric Schmidt’s Innovation Endeavors, Joe Lonsdale, Blumberg Capital, Joe Greenstein, and others. Prior to today’s round, Any.Do had raised $1 million in funding.
Recently, Onavo Insights said Any.Do is the most popular to-do list on iOS as of March. Check out the stats below.
