The Least Dangerous To-Do List is a charmingly antagonistic anti-productivity app from the folks who brought you The Most Dangerous Writing App. It's available on the iOS App Store for free. For more information, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Everybody needs a to-do list.
We love that sweet release when you check things off... you know what we don't love? Doing stuff. Doing stuff sucks.
Enter The Least Dangerous To-Do List: Every day, you get six new, decidedly low-effort tasks that as a living, breathing human being you're probably going to do anyway. Why not get the sweet reward for checking them off your to-do list, too?
Other To-Do lists overwhelm you with the need to think about what you need to do, when to do it, and then even doing them. The LDTDL (pronounce it any way you like!) offers unrivalled simplicity by not even allowing you to create tasks. Unless, that is, you feel particularly brazen, in which case you can buy a ridiculously overpriced hardcore mode that allows you to add one (!) task per day yourself. Plus, you get to feel superior for your unabashed display of wealth by spending money on a feature you really don't need.
We are equally shocked and disappointed that people are actually buying this. Then again, this is 2020. What else is new?
LDTDL (We like to think of it as Liddle Tiddle) was created by wife-and-husband duo Kari Tarr and Manuel Ebert. Kari is a tech operator and productivity czar who brought order to teams at Amazon, Airbnb, and Good Money. Manuel is a former neuroscientist, technologist and entrepreneur who creates the mess Kari thrives on.
