There is a nice little app for android called "do it tomorrow", where
you can plan easily for one day, and move them to the next day easily.

I was trying to do the same in org-mode, so my idea is that:
- in the morning I fill some tasks which I should do during the day
- at night I move to the next days the ones which were not finished

(maybe the "DONE" flag should be set automatically in case they're
trivial or the explanation might go somewhere else).

The problem is that from the agenda view I can't easily move a task to
the next day, is anyone doing anything like this?

Thanks,
Andrea

Andrea,

All too often, I reschedule from the agenda. On an item, C-c C-s, the use
the calendar to pick the new day. Does that not do what you are after?

Best,

I use S-right:

<S-right> runs the command org-agenda-do-date-later

Even more simply, <Shift-right arrow> while sitting on the task in the
agenda moves it ahead by a day.

Binding `org-agenda-date-later' to a key like `f' ought to work out for
you.

'f' is already bound to next-week, and it's also quite useful.
Shift-right work great thanks!
The problem is that shift-arrow in general is a disputed key for me,
so I have to use M-- / M-+ to get the same result, not a big deal anyway.

Thanks everyone

An alternative is to use the scheduling mechanism.

* TODO My Task
  SCHEDULED: <2011-10-12 Wed>

This task will automatically be forwarded to the following day, until it is done.

Fantastic!
I only see the habit page on the manual now, but it has to be enabled,
and the "SCHEDULED" setting has to be done by hand right?
Maybe I should use a capture template for that?

And it's not very clear how do I set an habit on a task, when I run
org-habit-toggle-habits it opens me the agenda buffer, instead of doing 
something in
the current task as I (wrongly) expected.

Use C-c C-s for this.  All described in detail in the manual - take the time to read it!

That is also a possibility, of course!

Again, the manual does cover this.  the toggle-habit function is for turning them on and off in the agenda display.

I bind M-n/p to next/perv-week/day/etc.

LOL.  Somehow, flyspell thinks prev is less correct than perv.

While we're talking about scheduling... one thing I'd love to see, but
never figured out how to do, is to schedule a parent task, and have
the subtasks all inherit that schedule.  I think I've tried most
obvious things, but schedules seem just not to be inherited.

Hi John,

I think I have read somewhere that you wrote a function which does the following:

If a todos schedule date is more than one day in the past it will be scheduled
automatically to today when using the function to move the schedule forward for one day.

Is that right and if yes could you share it please?

Best,
Rainer

That was a feature suggestion made by Dave Abrahams.  Hasn't been coded yet,
sorry. :(  But followup on the thread so Carsten sees it has more supporters!
:)

This may very well be a nice thing to have, but also note that you can
go onto a scheduled item, hit C-c C-s, then type +1 to have it scheduled
to tomorrow. That seems pretty close to enough, though it's not quite
automated. Bulk agenda action?
