Better ToDo It – A Google Chrome Extension for Better Task Management

When ever I looked out for something simple but feature rich application where I can manager my todos in the simplest way, I struggled alot to find nothing.

I was looking for a to do management application where I can manage my todos locally (and optionally with server sync). The applications should be so simple, that I should be able to just add tasks and put some notes over there. All the applications I saw were server client based applications or windows based applications.

Why it is not possible to have an application which has the power of a windows like application and beauty of the web application. It is possible, I thought, Better To Do It myself. I created the Google Chrome (if you are not using this browser, you should give it a try, a simple yet powerful browser) extension and named it Better ToDo It. The extension is my very early efforts of providing an in browser ToDos and Notes management application, where the user need not to be dependent on the internet connection for its regular operations.  This extension I have published in Beta form to the chrome web store with very few entry level features coded. Currently one can

  • add task
  • modify task
  • add notes
  • delete tasks
  • reset the local task data from options page of the extension.
the application is so light weight that one wouldn’t even notice that it is running.

Here are the silent features of the app yet to be developed or enhanced:

  • normal features
    • totally offline for the regular operations like manage the tasks and notes.
    • set the task priority
    • set the task category
    • custom categories
    • custom priority
    • grouping and sorting by different prime properties of todo items
    • provide search feature
  • pro features
    • sync with central server
    • sync with google task
    • password protected list
    • and lots more

The main target of making this extension is that an application, which does exactly what is meant to do. If some applications is not doing that the way, I will suggest Better ToDo It your self.

You can visit the extension’s web store page here Better ToDo It and try it. Do post your reviews here or on the Google Chrome Extension’s Page. I am in a way to develop the features you request.

Tools: vCard Splitter Application

Name: vCard Splitter
Application: splits the phonebook.vcf into contact.vcf files.
Requirement: Copy contacts from Sony to Nokia or other phones.


So many of my friends have asked me who are moving from Sony to other brand for Mobile phones, specially to Nokia, that they want to copy there contacts. and they are not able to do that. There are many ways to that out of them one is to export the whole address book from Sony and split it into individual contact file and transferring them to your other handset.


You can use the below steps to do that:

  1. Open your address book in the Sony Mobile.
  2. Use Options -> Advance -> Send All Contacts -> Via Bluetooth.
  3. Select the Computer where you need to send the Contacts from the searched devices.
  4. Download the vCard Splitter from here (old version removed).
  5. Extract and open the application.
  6. Select the “whole phonebook.vcf” file in the input file.
  7. Select the output directory where the vCard files need to be created after splitting.
  8. Click on Split button.
  9. Open the output directory.
  10. Transfer them to your other handset.


Above method depends on the type of the handsets you are having at both ends.


Thanks to all you guys suggesting out the features and finding out the problems in the applications. I have updated the vCard Splitter Application nearly re-writing the most of the code. You can download the new updated version from below mentioned link.
