With the sheer number of to-do list applications available for Android, there should be a stroke available for all the different folks out there. Todoist is one of the premium choices on the market, a subscription-based web platform that supports syncing tasks and projects across any number of devices. A major update to the Android app is rolling out today, offering a revisited interface that still manages to marry Todoist's web interface with Holo quite well. This shiny new appearance also comes with a bevy of hands-on features that improve the experience.
Aside from the new coat of paint, the Todoist team has devised a new navigation menu and improved the app's search capability. It's also easier to create new tasks from your smartphone or tablet than it used to be. These improvements are available for everyone, but there are others that are exclusive to paid subscribers, such as stronger filters and a new interface for setting reminders. Creating and managing notes has also been simplified.
- Amazing new visuals
- New and simplified way of adding tasks
- New and more user-friendly left menu
- Enhanced search & filters
- New UI for reminders
- Manage notes and reminders while adding/editing a task
The app is free, but while the core functionality is mostly available, some attractive options are excluded and require a premium account costing $29 a year. In addition to the new features above, a paid account comes with color-coded labels, file uploads, completion history, charts, and the ability to add tasks via email. If your needs extend further than managing a few lists and notes, Todoist might be worth a look.
