Todoist takes its task-management app to tablets, and rolls out a fresh interface with new ‘Inbox’ ...

Task-management and productivity service Todoist has optimized its iOS app for iPads, while the existing iPhone incarnation has also been given a major lick of paint.

Since we last covered Todoist back in March – just as it rolled out Karma scores and productivity graphs – the company has also optimized its Android app for tablets, quietly introducing the update back in May.

9This latest update signals a significant overhaul of the iOS app, and brings it inline with what was introduced for Android recently.

This includes a new user interface with a menu on the left-hand side and a new ‘Inbox’ project to make adding tasks easier on the go – it’s essentially a centralized default repository for all new tasks. So you no longer need to choose a specific project to assign each task to.

Other updates include custom filters which incorporate Boolean operators, and ‘swipe’ to indicate a completed task.

Todoist was launched back in 2007 to more than a little fanfare in the productivity space. It then rolled out an all-new Todoist built using HTML5, with the Web app given a boost and offline access enabled through the desktop browser. And back in November last year, Todoist finally arrived with its first foray into native mobile apps.

“Building the tablet versions wasn’t easy but we are sure the energy was well spent considering the millions of tablet users around the world,” says Amir Salihefendic, founder of Todoist.

“We’re really happy to serve these users with beautiful apps that are specially crafted for the tablet format.”

You can grab the new iOS app now, or if the recent Android update had passed you by, that too can be downloaded.
