Google Tasks is about to make it even easier to sort through your most important to-dos

Google Tasks is about to make it even easier to sort through your most important to-dos

Google has no shortage of ways to manage your task list, with the standalone Tasks app chief among them. Although the service hasn't quite caught on with a general audience — if its meager install count is anything to go by — it's still actively improving with each update. The Android app is getting a new addition soon, one that should make even the strictest of task managers feel a little more in control of their to-do lists.

Google Keep is getting some sweet background images

Google Keep is getting some sweet background images

Google Keep is great, and if you disagree, you're wrong. At this point I'm torn between my love for this basic but incredibly handy note-taking utility, and my terror that Google will yank it away in favor of refocusing on Tasks and making me update it solely via Assistant. I'm getting a little less nervous after seeing a new Keep feature pop up: background images!

Evernote's new Tasks feature is free ... for now

Evernote's new Tasks feature is free ... for now

Notes apps often include some kind of to-do list function, so it's kind of remarkable that Evernote doesn't. Or at least didn't as of yesterday, when the app added a new Tasks section for some users. It's available via the left-side hamburger menu, though Evernote is quick to point out that this part of the app is in early access.

Bundled Notes is like Google Keep on steroids with added to-do list capabilities (Update: Web app beta)

Bundled Notes is like Google Keep on steroids with added to-do list capabilities (Update: Web app beta)

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.

Todoist experiments with hand-written task list scanning, adds auto dark theme switching

Todoist experiments with hand-written task list scanning, adds auto dark theme switching

A couple of months ago, task manager Todoist received one of its biggest updates with the "Foundations" release, which added project sections, better subtask management, dynamic task addition, and more. The app's devs aren't taking the remainder of 2019 off, though, and keep releasing beta updates with new features. The latest beta is interesting to us for two reasons: auto dark theme on Android and a new, experimental OCR scanning option.

Hands-on: Elegant bucket list app 'Soon' launches on Android

In a world that bombards us with things to do, it can be tough to stay on top of everything we think is worth checking out. Movies we want to see, music to listen to, books to read, restaurants to try, and places to go, there's just so much to do and almost no central way to keep track of all of this. You can use a simple list app, like Google Keep for example, but where's the fun in that? Now there's a new way to stay on top of your bucket list: Soon.

[Update: Android Pie App Actions] Todoist adds dark theme, launches new Wear OS app

[Update: Android Pie App Actions] Todoist adds dark theme, launches new Wear OS app

For dark theme enthusiasts, vindication time is finally here. Not only is Google working on dark themes for many of its apps, several other developers and services have joined the darker side and started implementing these AMOLED-friendly designs in their apps. The latest is Todoist, my personal favorite to-do manager. But that's not the only new thing from the service; it's also rolling out an all-new standalone Wear OS app that lets you manage your tasks without having to install the app on your phone too.

IFTTT adds support for Remember The Milk, Asana, and WeatherFlow

IFTTT adds support for Remember The Milk, Asana, and WeatherFlow

IFTTT, the popular web-based automation platform, recently added support for three new services. The new additions to the service are Remember The Milk, Asana, and WeatherFlow smart weather stations. I guess that means you can set lightning strikes recorded by your WeatherFlow weather station to trigger Asana tasks for your employees which, upon completion, add a Remember The Milk reminder to follow up on the lightning strike tomorrow. Ah, the future.

Todoist enlists artificial intelligence to help you schedule tasks

Todoist enlists artificial intelligence to help you schedule tasks

Most of my Todoist tasks are pharmacy orders that don't have a due date but that I attend to whenever suppliers call or drop by. However, I also use the service to stay on top of urgent orders and patient questions that I need to address as well as to manage my personal to-dos. The latter are the tasks that end up getting rescheduled day after day until I'm either bored and I remove the due date or I'm so sick of seeing them pop up that I decide to get them done.

It seems that I'm not alone. Todoist says that a "significant portion of users end up rescheduling 50, 60, 70 tasks day after day," and these were the inspiration for the new Smart Schedule feature.
