We first went hands-on with Bundled Notes back in May when it was still in beta, and in the meantime, a lot has changed. Developer Xavier Tobin launched a web app, added Kanban boards for project management, fixed tons of bugs, fine-tuned the UI, and made sure the experience feels rounded out. Today, the Indie app finally launches as version 1.0, complete with a new logo and the first few translations.
If you search the Play Store for to-do apps, there's an endless sea of results, and many offers have similar approaches to task management: Most apps essentially let you create a checklist of tasks. Often, they're sorted by time or priority, and many apps are capable of integrating with your calendar, but all in all, a lot of the services are similar. The relatively fresh 2019 indie app Taskito is going for a different approach that reminds me of a supercharged version of the agenda view in Google Calendar.
As voice assistants get smarter, everyday tasks become easier to accomplish. Now Todoist is introducing a completely revamped version of its Todoist for Google Assistant integration which promises to make keeping up with to-do lists faster with help from advanced voice commands.
Todoist just came forward with its own approach to kanban board-style project management, but if you need something less expensive or don't work on a large scale, you might be interested in Bundled Notes' approach to this organization style. Version 0.9 adds kanban board support and makes navigating and using the combined notes and productivity tool more intuitive, leading up to the service's stable 1.0 release.
I've been searching for the perfect note-taking app for a long time. I like Google Keep for its simplicity, but that's also its biggest crux. It's missing a few too many features to become my one-stop solution. Evernote, on the other hand, is too blown up for me. It feels sluggish and overloaded with features I'll never need (at least that was the case when I last used it). Bundled Notes, a new app created by indie developer Xavier Tobin, might become the perfect middle ground for me and might even replace my to-do app along the way.
Today is finally the day Wunderlist dies, years after the Microsoft acquisition. Former users are encouraged to switch to Microsoft To Do, Wunderlist's spiritual successor as a Redmond product. To make the jump smoother on the last possible day, the company has added some more features known from Wunderlist, like overviews of your tasks for today, tomorrow, or the week ahead as well as new All and Completed smart lists.
It seemed like Google Tasks had been on the way out for a long time, but last year, Google decided to breathe new life into it and launched a dedicated Android app for the service. Even though the application has received some welcomeadditionsover the last months, you could unfortunately never add tasks straight from the Google Calendar app (that's only partially possible on the web right now), but Google is working on changing just that. XDA Developers managed to manually activate a Tasks integration in the latest Calendar release, 2019.47.2.
Reminder and to-do apps can be a little daunting to manage. Most of them overflow with so many options that you may find it easier not to use them. But that's not what Three.do, a new reminder app aims to, uhm, do.
