Todoist is bolstering its cross-platform task management service today with wider support for file attachments and sharing.

The company now supports Google Drive and Dropbox, giving users the ability to quickly connect their documents to important tasks. Users of the free service will only be able to sync their files in shared projects, while Premium users have free reign over which tasks they’re paired with.

As before, users can upload PDFs, spreadsheets and photos on the desktop, although for this latest release Todoist has improved the workflow across all of its apps and extensions. “For example, you can now just drag and drop images into your Gmail plugin, and we’ll upload them and create thumbnails,” the company said. “Additionally, this isn’t blocking – so you don’t have to wait for the upload to finish and you can do other things in the meantime.”

Todoist has also brought native file support over to its mobile apps for the first time, enabling users to record/upload audio files and attach photos. To tempt users across to its Premium service, Todoist is offering a 30 percent discount on its $29 annual subscription fee for the next 48 hours.
