Back in January of 2009, we reviewed the iPod/iPhone version of Todo and highly recommended it because of its superior interface and advanced filtering and synchronization options. Since our review, several advancements have been made in this productivity app. Synchronization using a desktop computer loaded with Appigo Sync has become available for one.

The iPad’s increased real estate treats this app kindly in its expanded version for the iPad. Navigation through Todo has become more advanced with help of additional tabs along the left side of the screen that allow for segregation of tasks by individual variable, or contexts, based on the user’s need.

Using Appigo Sync now allows for Windows users to sync to their desktop, a feature that was originally unavailable at the time of our review of the smaller sized app. This is currently in beta stages, and requires the use of Outlook to function properly. This restricts the population of usable computers, but inputting data into the iPad is so streamlined that it isn’t a major issue to contend with. The option of free online syncing may be a better one, especially considering the lack of USB sync functionality available for Todo.

Overall, Todo is as good, if not an even better app than its smaller iteration is. It performs great in the same areas, and still has the somewhat intimidating feel the first time you open it up. Veterans of Todo will find a solid app that seems like an upgraded version of home, and newcomers will find a powerful app that can help even the extremely unorganized, organize their lives in a little more detail. Check it out today from Appigo for $4.99.
