About 2do BY day
2do BY day is a simplified task list by AE'G-wiz. Add tasks to particular days and then focus on just those that are most immediate on a daily basis. The iOS interface automatically prioritizes and color codes your tasks according to their beginning and due dates, categorizing your list of tasks for easy interaction and editing. The objective of 2do BY day is to provide essential and intuitive functionality for managing your to-do list, without over burdening the app with a required list of "options" and steps every time you wish add a new task.
Minimize the strategizing required to create your task list, and maximize the results.

The honest answer is: if you've found one you like, then you shouldn't. 2do BY day was created because there seemed to be a small gap in the task list apps already available. There was very little that listed tasks by day in an attractive and intuitive way.
The colors indicate how soon a particular task is due...in other words, how high a priority it is based purely upon the provided schedule. You can click on the Help & Tips section in the Settings tab to see a definition for each color icon, or to learn more about the app and its features in general.
By default, tasks are organized by the day they become active. However, if you would prefer that they be organized by the date they are due instead, you can turn that functionality on in the Settings tab.
The tabs are customizable. Feel free to rearrange them according to your preference. Just click on More... and then select Edit. You can drag and drop tabs where you'd like them to be.
Tasks are usually grouped together first by the day they become active or start, and then by color and due date within that group. Organizing tasks by the date due instead means that they will be listed under their due date instead of their active date.
Visit the Settings tab in the app and scroll to the bottom of the page. You'll find a switch there that allows you to turn the "anytime" tasks OFF for the Today tab. They will remain listed under All for your reference.
If you've updated to iOS 5.0 or later, Apple® has introduced a Notifications center under the main Settings app. If you visit Settings > Notifications on your device and then look for 2do BY day in the list, you will find individual settings for notifications and badges. Make sure that the 'Badge App Icon' setting is turned ON, and you should see your current task count reappear on your app icon.
The calendar is still available in the app. Just click on the date you'd like to modify (instead of the little blue detail arrow next to the date). A calendar will popup for fast date changes. If you need to change or add a time, you'll need to use the datetime editor on the options page, but the calendar works great for a simple change of day.
