A ToDoList for the Masses

I have started work on a new social media web app for sharing one's to-do list with friends and coworkers.
Initial proof of concept design.
My motivations for this project are numerous:
  1. To fulfill a personal need for a web based to-do list.
  2. To create something cool and learn some new skills along the way.
  3. To build a free, open-source platform that provides a more efficient way for people to work together.

Here are some use cases:
  1. People who need a generic to-do list for everyday tasks like feeding the dog, buying milk, paying the bills, etc.
  2. Students who want to sync up all class assignments and eliminate confusion on due dates.  Teachers/professors will be able to form groups and electronically push assignments to their students.
  3. People who need to work collaboratively in team projects.  Developers already have tools like issue trackers, but what about the non-developer masses?  Every single organization can benefit from project management tools.
  4. Friends who want to know what their friends are up to.

I found a great site that offers free icons here.

My project is hosted on GitHub here.

Stay tuned for more updates!
