Todoist is a fantastic and gorgeous to-do list or task management app for the iPad and iPhone, Android, Mac and Windows, and web browsers. Its iPad app just came out a little over a week ago and I installed it that same day. Within 24 hours of starting with it, I had signed up for a premium account, installed the Mac app, and switched over entirely to Todoist across all my devices.
For me, that’s a big deal – as I rely heavily on a great task management app to run my work and life. I’m not a big power user of calendar apps, but managing tasks is something I’m obsessive about and focused on day in and day out.
I’ve used a lot of to-do and task management apps over the years – everything from Outlook Tasks and OneNote, to Pocket Informant on Windows Mobile, to Remember the Milk and Toodledo online and on the iPhone, to Things and OmniFocus on the iPad and the Mac, and most recently Wunderlist due mainly to its cross platform (Android and iOS) capabilities. So it takes a lot for an app in this category to impress me. In fact, even more these days, because now I want an app that works great on Mac, iOS, and Android.
Remember The Milk – the popular online to-do app – now has an iPad app.
Remember The Milk was one of my first favorite to-do / task management apps for iOS, way back in the early days of the App Store. I paid $25 to upgrade my account so I had access to the iPhone app and enjoyed using the app until some other slicker native apps with desktop companion apps for the Mac came along.
And today I learned that it’s been updated to a universal app, meaning it now has a full-fledged iPad version.
I wish Remember The Milk offered a desktop app, as I moved away from the app due to finding its online app interface a bit clunky to use. By now there are a number of task management titles that have powerful iOS and desktop apps – so I find it hard to ‘settle’ for just an online companion.
It looks like the free version of the app now offer all its features, but limits you ton only one sync every 24 hours – which is not a viable option for many power users. You can upgrade to a Pro account to gain unlimited sync, via In-App purchase at $2.99 a month or $24.99 per year. It’s good that there is a monthly option, so you can try the app out at full strength without incurring too great a cost.
Here’s an App Store link for Remember The Milk; it’s a free app with sync limitations and In-App Purchase account upgrades as mentioned above. It’s a universal app designed to run on both iPad and iPhone.
Things for iPad – the iPad version of the superb task manager app for iPad, iOS and Mac – has been updated, to Version 1.4. Here’s what’s new:
• Repeating Tasks. Our flexible and robust repeating tasks feature is now also available on the iPad. Create recurrences in your Scheduled list, either based on a calendar pattern (e.g. every last day in the month), or at a fixed interval after completing the previous task (e.g. 2 weeks after completion).
• Sync repeating tasks with the Mac version of Things.
• Bug fixes and other improvements.
A nice add, but like many other Things users, there is really only one update I’m wanting to see for Things – cloud (or OTA) sync.
You can find the latest version of Things for iPad in the App Store now, priced at $19.99.
Todo for iPad is a great looking and full-featured to-do app for the iPad and iPhone, with good desktop and online sync options …
I’m a huge fan of to-do apps. I rely heavily on task lists to manage my work and even much of my life in general. Todo for iPad is the first task manager app that has really caught my eye in quite a while, as I already have a solution that works very well for me in this area (Things).
I liked the look and sound of the app so much when I saw its iPad version released, that I’ve been trying it out for a couple of days.
