The app has three essential panels, To-Do which incorporates your list; Timer, that’s wherein the inbuilt timer lives in; and Done, which lists your finished tasks designed with a strikethrough.

Go For It!‘s to-do lists are stored in the Todo.txt format which makes synchronisation across mobile devices simple; and also allows the possibility of editing lists using other front-end apps like Todo.txt.

You can install Go For It! using its official Launchpad PPA to get its .deb packages for Ubuntu distros >= 14.04 but we recommend that you use the terminal to add the PPA so you can get automatic updates:
