+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
To Do list manager, Wunderlist 2, recently updated with iPad support. The developers say that the new version has increased speed, better performance, and smoother transitions between lists. You’ll also find a revamped detail view, with even more changes planned for the future.
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
It’s here! The Evernote team just confirmed on their blog that Evernote 5 for iOS is ready, available, and willing to be your go-to app for all your note taking and media saving needs. There are tons of new features, layouts, views, and other tweaks that make this a fantastic update – it’s still free, and still universal, so be sure to grab it.
Our apps never stop evolving. Every few weeks, we release an update that adds something new or improves an existing feature. It’s not often that we launch a complete redesign. In fact, it happens only once every few years. That’s what we’re doing today with our huge, new Evernote 5 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
Here’s something you don’t hear about every day. Any.DO is a stylish to-do app, similar to Clear in that it’s simple, but has some more advanced features. Users add tasks to the app, and can be notified at a specific time to complete them. The app even allows users to use their built-in speech-to-text service to record their task list entries.
Maybe you have seen this kind of app before. But here’s the crazy thing: this app was originally released on Android, and has been brought to iOS and Chrome. Yes, it was in this same form – it’s still one of the better-designed apps for Android, and it is a standout on iOS. This big update for the app not only brings it to iOS along with Chrome, but it also brings synchronization to the app. By logging in with either Facebook or a proprietary account, users can sync up their to-do lists between all 3 platforms. Best part? Any.DO is free to download, a small price to pay for the diehard iOS fan who may have trouble stomaching the rare Android-to-iOS port.
Another week means another note making productivity app. Fortunately Notes n Tasks is an attractive yet never overcomplicated app that does exactly what anyone could need of it.
The app adapts to every need, whether it be for a specific project or simply the grocery list for the week. Users can enter information easily as well as supplement such notes with due dates or a label to mark it as important. Organizational tools are available with the ability to create groups and then assign notes to their respective category. Everything is appealing and easy to get to grips with.
It means that Notes n Tasks is an ideal iPad app for keeping track of everything that needs doing in an ever busy world. It’s inexpensive at $1.99 with future updates promising iPhone compatibility, push reminders, location revelant information and cloud synchronization via Dropbox and iCloud. Surely the ideal time to hop on the Notes n Tasks train?
I’ve got a memory like a sieve. Just ask anyone who knows me. I forget literally everything of any use unless it’s written down. Sometimes not even then. Kooaba Deja Vu won’t instantly make my memory amazing but it will give me a way of keeping track of things.
Deja Vu allows users to snap pictures in order to remember things as a form of visual memo. While this could easily be done simply with the photo album function, the real beauty is in the way that Deja Vu allows users to categorize and label memos for easy consultation. Tagging and geotagging means that it’s easy to check back on what’s been recorded.
All the information is automatically synced in the cloud meaning that notes are always easy to consult again.
The app can be used for pretty much anything from seemingly obvious things such as a reminder to wash the car or phone someone, or for present ideas.
Kooaba Deja Vu is out now and it’s a free app with up to 30 visual memos per month bundled in. For unlimited usage, users can choose to pay $19.99 per year.
There are over eight thousand applications in the Productivity section of the App Store, totalling almost 2.5% of all applications available to download. Why then – and how – has 6 Wunderkinder’s Wunderlist come from nowhere to almost eight million task creations, being labelled as iPhone App of the Week by Apple in both the US and German App Stores? Through a beautiful design and integrated interface, all with no price tag attached, its one million users have everything to be happy about.
The sleek get-things-done application aims to simplify life’s tasks with one interface and minimal fuss. “Wunderlist makes it dead simple to organize your daily life. Just add some lists and start filling them with the things that need to be done” reads the official release, noting the capability to add tasks by e-mail. The application is free to download on both the iPhone / iPod Touch and iPad, with no strings (or adverts) attached.
There doesn’t appear to be any compromise between price and security either. The free application sports SSL encryption, meaning every login and sync happens securely with no interception from third parties. All data is stored on secure servers run by Media Temple, a 103-employee strong company that operates twenty four hours a day to ensure that secured data remains secure.
Earlier this week, I got in touch with Robert Kock, Co-Founder of the company behind the application. Here’s what we talked about:
What was the inspiration behind Wunderlist?
Robert: Before we started working on Wunderkit, we discussed how we could gain awareness for our brand and our work even before the initial launch. How could we get thousands of people being interested in us? We wanted to make it big, so we decided to built a software and give it away for free. Thinking about an application that literally everyone would need, we came up with a concept of a task manager called Wunderlist. To improve the user experience to a maximum, we combined several aspects of popular software. So now we have an easy-to-use task manager for nearly every device that provides cloud sync and sharing functionality for free.
Why and how is the service free?
Robert: Wunderlist is free because it is a give away. We want users to get used to our philosophy of simplicity and good usability and we wanted them to get to know the 6Wunderkinder brand. We managed to built a substantial fan base literally within several weeks.
What are your future plans?
Robert: Because the development and the maintenance of the Wunderlist service requires more and more of our resources, we thought about monetize Wunderlist later on. But we won’t consider any actions before we asked our community which way they’d like us to go. Besides all that, we are working on Wunderkit and hope that all of our users will love it as much as we do.
Available to download now.
