Recently, Guided Ways Technologies updated their 2Do task management app. They have rebuilt the entire app to be streamlined and easier to use. With over over 200 new features and improvements, there are so many we can’t list them all, but a few of the the features are:
Calendar Events for iPad: View and manage your Calendar events directly from within 2Do. No need to switch between apps.
List Groups: Create new List Groups for organizing your lists. You can collapse or expand a List group with a simple tap.
Quick Add: Tap and hold on [+] to add one task after another
Extended View: Tap on the priority button next to the task to view multiple lines of text, notes and tags in one go
Pinch Zooming: Pinch your fingers to zoom in or zoom out of your tasks.
With the iOS 8 system, 2Do now also supports Fingerprint Password Protection and Notifications with built-in actions.
Current users will be upgraded for free, but if 2Do is new to you, then you can pick it up on the App Store for $14.99.

Everybody’s favorite abusive To-Do list app, CARROT, has just benefited from a rather substantial update.
The update brings with it a speech synthesizer, a new story chapter to do with Captain Whiskers, and a cowboy cat costume in the Shop N Slack store. For those at level 15, there’s now a new way to quickly add items to your list through swiping down.
60 new rewards can also be earned (according to the developer, they’re mostly cat facts) and there are 5 new challenges to test you.
For the uninitiated, prepare to be insulted regularly by this bizarre motivational tool. There’s no other task management app quite like it, but it’s a great idea.
CARROT is out now on the App Store and is priced at $2.99.

A new update for task management app, OmniFocus 2, has just been released, adding TextEpander support to the tool.
That means you can now enjoy being even more productive, thanks to being able to rely upon using various text based shortcuts. No longer do you have to worry about retyping the same snippets of text all the time when adding new tasks!
As well as that, the app has had a few bug fixes, reducing its chances of crashing or suffering from a glitch or two.
OmniFocus 2 is available from the App Store, priced at $19.99.
So the news of an update for Clear might make a few fans nervous. Fortunately, it’s simply been improved upon without getting too complicated for minimalist fans.
The best new feature is the ability to shake to undo, allowing users to quickly retrieve anything they may have accidentally removed. There’s also no more character limit so users can type as much as they want for each entry.
More intriguingly comes news that there are secret themes to discover and more inspirational quotes to be displayed once the user has cleared everything from their list.
It’s the ideal time to give Clear a shot, all the more so as it’s currently on sale for $0.99 instead of $1.99.
There is a lot to get done at this time of year and dozens of apps to help us stay on top of all of everything. There are some great full-featured task-managing systems and calendars on the App Store, but this week we wanted to focus on apps that keep it simple. Here are four to do list apps that will keep users on task and on budget. If we missed your favorite be sure to let us know.
Wunderlist is a robust cross-platform task management app . It uses cloud syncing to keep information up-to-date across all of a user’s iOS devices. Wunderlist allows for list sharing, email reminders and push and badge notices and even lets users customize the look. The app allows for a lot of detail, sorting is easy and best of all it’s not ad-supported and there are no in-app purchases. Wunderlist is completely free.

InstaTodo allows users to quickly enter and manage a to do list. The app uses task hierarchies to keep a user focused on what’s most important and allows for sub-task lists to handle complicated projects. It also has reminders, sharing and all the task management features expected from a full-features to do app. What sets InstaTodo apart, however, is its use of templates. The app comes with dozens of general use templates that can be further customized, or any user-created list can be saved as a template for future use.

Do It (Tomorrrow) HD
A procrastinator’s friend, Do It (Tomorrow) is the simplest of task managers. This has a gorgeous GUI and a single focus- what needs to be done today, and what can be put off until tomorrow. Users quickly and easily create a to-do list that looks handwritten, and either tick off completed tasks or shunt projects to tomorrow. While it sounds simple, it actually is really helpful when managing the small details that come up every day – the ones that no one has time to enter into a complicated calendar app. The paid HD version syncs lists across devices.
iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Released: 2010-07-16 :: Category: Productivity
This to do app prides itself on simplicity and flexibility. The GUI is clean and uncluttered and the app allows unlimited list and sub-list creation. List Buddy has “One Touch Delete” for removing multiple lists or items at a time and an internal search function. List Buddy even remembers previous entries – when it recognizes the first few letters of a new item it will fill in the rest. The sorting options are extensive, sharing is easy and multiple list management is built right in.
Since I currently live in what can be considered “The City,” I haven’t had much need for a car in the past 6+ years. However, I still remember how extensive a trip to the gas station could be: pump gas, check the oil levels, squeegee the windshield, check tire pressure, buy snacks and whatever else the occasion called for. Now I can relive that experience any time I want, minus the snacks (*tear*), thanks to Treat Yourself Apps’ Panic At The Pump.
Panic At The Pump is a hectic, multitasking, time management game that tosses players into the roll of an over-worked gas station attendant. Cars file in one-by-one, each one with a laundry list of demands, and it’s up to the player to take care of it all. They have to be quick and efficient, however, because the clock is always ticking down. Soon it won’t be enough to simply fill the tank; they’ll have to pump gas while refilling oil and putting air in the tires.
Weirdos like me who sometimes miss the full automotive experience, or even just the curious, can check out Panic At The Pump in the App Store right now for free.
