Go For It!: ToDo list with reminder

ToDo list managers is a category of apps where there are no lack of contenders. However, there’s a new one for Ubuntu which is deserves a mention because of its style. I am talking about Go For It!, a light ToDo list manager released recently (at the time of writing).


  • Add ToDo items (obviously) and set reminders (also check Indicator Remindor).
  • Built-in productivity timer to bring you back to track. While the timer avoids distraction, it also helps you avoid Repetitive Strain Injury.
  • Store and sync tasks on a mobile device. Go For It! uses the ToDo.txt format which is understood by mobile devices or can be edited in external editors. If you are a ToDo.txt user, note that Go For It! automatically archives completed tasks to the done list.
  • Supports Ubuntu and Windows. Developer has plans to support other Linux platforms and OSX.


To install Go For It! on Ubuntu:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mank319/go-for-it
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install go-for-it
$ sudo sed -i "s/Exec=go-for-it/Exec=env\ LIBOVERLAY_SCROLLBAR=0\ go-for-it/g" /usr/share/applications/go-for-it.desktop
