Among some of Tasks’ bigger recent updates include the addition of day and night themes, as well as a pack of additional themes (all available for a single two-buck in-app purchase) as well as the ability to tag your to-dos Google Keep-style, with individual accent colors for those tags. For those folks who like quick access to their to-dos, the home screen widget has been updated to support all of those themes and colors, and has a transparency slider so you can display it in context on your desktop if you prefer. Similarly, the app still supports some of the features that made Astrid so good back in the day, including location-based reminders, smart recurring tasks, and a good-looking, clean layout.
Beyond that, the app is still completely free, and while the dev tells me that he’s working on his own webapp and to-do syncing framework, I’m pretty happy with the app’s current ability to sync with Google Tasks, which is a pretty nice stopgap. The app is, as always, free, and at the link below.
