Today, Todoist, a popular task management tool is introducing its official Windows 10 app. Earlier this year, the company acquired TaskCrunch for Windows Phone, wich was a popular third-party app on the Windows Phone Store. Since then, the developer of TaskCrunch app, Jan Kratochvil (he’s now the Head of Windows at Todoist) has been working on the new Windows 10 app for the service.
The new Todoist app is a Universal Windows App, however, it isn’t available for Windows 10 Mobile just yet (but it’s coming later). With the new app, Todoist is bringing a native experience for its service to its Windows users. The company’s Windows 10 app is beautiful, and it includes quite a lot of features. Obviously, the app includes the basic features such as the ability to create a task, add something to your to-do list, comments, inline editing, scheduled reminders, and much more. However, Todoist has added some sweet features to the app — such as interactive notifications, and live tiles support.
- Third-panel view: Windows 10 is the first platform where Todoist will support a third panel view. This is ideal for group collaboration as the third panel provides a spacious side-by-side overview of projects, tasks, comments, and attached files.
- Live Tiles: Live Tile squares on the desktop make information-at-a-glance incredibly easy. The customizable Todoist Live Tiles are perfect to use with an important project, a frequently viewed task or label, or an urgent task that may contain an active comment thread.
- Interactive notifications: Todoist’s notifications for Windows 10 will provide instant, actionable updates, and reminders. Users can complete or snooze the task directly from the notification without ever having to enter the actual app.
Jan Kratochvíl, founder of TaskCrunch and current Head of Windows at Todoist, told us:
“Our ultimate goal is to make Todoist the best to-do list app on the planet, on any Windows-powered device. The ambition is to keep the distinctive experience that is Todoist, while incorporating elements that make Windows 10 apps truly universal, namely the ability to transition seamlessly from mouse to touch and pen and work on any screen size. After the initial release, we plan to aggressively update the app to fix bugs and add new features. We hope our community will actively help us decide which features to prioritize and how to take full advantage of Windows 10 capabilities.”
As usual, Todoist has managed to pack a beautiful UI for its app — which is one of the main reasons I have been using the service for a while now. Here are some screenshots of the app:
