Do more and plan less. Get things off your mind and into a trusted system. Get things done without stress.
Manage your commitments as Next Actions. Minimalistic lists will help you to pick what to do next. No need to constantly rethink your tasks.

DoNext assists you in two things: (1) Add and (2) Do.

(1) Add - Decide your Next Action

Whenever you think of something e.g. "rome vacation" enter a next action into DoNext. Later decide the next action: the first physical step you can do, e.g. "search flight to Rome" with a tag "online".

(2) Do - Select your List

Whenever you decide what to do next, filter in DoNext e.g. „market“, „online“, „team-meeting“, or „partner“ then pick a Next Action.


• Tap a Next Action to mark it as completed.
• Completed items disappear the next day. You can still find all the actions in the search screen within 30 days.
• Decide the Next Action without moving your fingers from your keyboard. Swipe down in a list to create a Next Action for it.
• Jot down ideas on the go: See Actions which need a context on top of the do screen.
• Dynamic filters: Switching an Action from "call" to "message" takes only 3 taps.
• Change between lists using recent filters.
• Go to links, edit or delete items by swiping them left.
• Use Siri Shortcuts in iOS 12 to quickly to a list.


Benefits of (1) Add: Experience a great sense of clarity and perspective. Decided the Next Action for all your open loops. Splitting up all your desired outcomes in tiny Projects gives you great perspective. Since you only focus on the immediate Next Action you won‘t spend a lot of time on planing each Project.
DoNext makes it feasible to have hundreds of Next Actions at the same time. If you don't have a system for your smaller commitments your head attempts to do it for you. If you don’t write a thought down and decide on it, you probably will be stressed about it again later without making progress on it.

Benefits of (2) Do: Experience a great sense of focus, instead of rethinking your options all the time. Free your head from rethinking all your tasks. Working from your lists keeps your lists of To-Dos actionable and relevant. No need for manual task order, subsequent actions, "today view" or due reminders. Items are automatically sorted.


Ensure every item in DoNext could be done by you right now. Plan complex Projects where you need to track more than the Next Action on a separate document or system. Add the actions to DoNext as they become Next Actions. Create a tag PROJECTS and fill it with all your desired end results with multipla steps, e.g. "Organise flight to Italy". Decide the Next Action for each item in your inbox.
Schedule time specific actions in your calendar. For all ASAP tasks use DoNext. Make DoNext your major source of todos for deciding what to do next.

What's New

Version 1.40.1

NEW Introducing a completely redesigned interface, Siri shortcuts and Inbox mode
• One tap access to lists: switch between your contexts faster then ever. Use the new navigation bar. To see all the tags use the search.
• Clean new screens: the new add screen is now even simpler. Try future Pro features: you can create multiple next-actions for one context, by ending a next-action with ",". You can still access your projects for a while in the add screen by ending your action with ":".
• Use Siri to show a list: swipe right on a context in the add or search screen to record a shortcut like "show team-meeting agenda".
• Intelligent suggestions: Siri learns which lists you look at and will give suggestions.
• Get to Inbox Zero: Tap DECIDE when you are in the inbox. DoNext will suggest you one by one all the uncompleted actions without tags.

Additional small tweaks:

• Switch contexts faster with the new iPad keyboard shortcuts: press cmd + 1 to 5 to access your recent lists.

On my way to Getting Things Done!


Right away I could organize my projects and tasks and clearly see what I need to do next. Having an organized list of actionable tasks will help me get more done in less time, and I won’t worry that I’ve forgotten something.
