Task management app Todoist received what is described as a major update today for the Android app, taking it up to version 2.0. According to developer Doist, the new version was “rethought, redesigned and recreated!” There are some new designs incorporated into the app, bringing it even more inline with the Holo design guidelines. This is especially true for the slide-out menu from the left, but even the main screen sees some refinement. One thing regular users will notice is the menu of actions when tapping on a task now shows up at the bottom of the screen inside of just below the task. Clicking on the menu option provides a new choice – “Add sub-task” which will be a welcome addition for those building a hierarchy of to-do items.
The notes connected to a task also appear differently, taking up the entire screen. If you have multiple notes, you can just swipe left or right to access them. The task input screen has been simplified, initially displaying just the task description, “project” and due date fields, though others are available via a downward swipe on a “more” button. Todoist also incorporates tabs along the top when creating a task for the addition of notes or reminders when creating the task. Those last two options are new as previously one had to create the task first, then go back and add notes or reminders. Todoist does give users the option to turn off the tabs or display all fields instead of the new abbreviated version.
