Todo, from Appigo, has long been one of the best task management apps on the iPhone, and now the iPad. Back in Jan, 2009, when we did the original review, we touted its streamlined interface and its free online syncing as the features that put the app above the rest, but the new Todo 4 adds even more to the already impressive app.
The major update for Todo 4 is its implementation of iOS4 features. With the new update, users can take calls or switch to other apps during synchronization, and can use local notifications to continuously update the icons badge so you know exactly how much you have to get done. The iPhone 4 version (and soon the iPad version) also uses local notifications to remind you of tasks, so you’ll get what you need to know regardless of network connectivity.
Other features include:
Passcode locking throughout the app. Synching with the brand new Todo Online system ($19.99/yr.), which syncs your iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, and computers together via wifi or 3G. Updates to Appigio Sync (free), allowing for syncing with iCal and Outlook.
“Appigo has taken Todo 4 to a new level that is far beyond other to-do list apps available on the iPhone or iPad,” said Calvin Gaisford, Appigo’s CEO. “With the amazing features of iOS 4, monitoring and completing tasks during the day is now possible even when Todo isn’t running.”
Be sure to download the new update today, and if you don’t have Todo yet, now would be a great time to hop on board. It’ll cost you less than your venti mocha and it’ll be far more useful.
