Appigo’s Todo (TMA Review), one of the more robust task managers on the App Store, has just been updated to 5.0 and now supports iCloud sync. Todo already syncs with a number of services, including Todo Online, Dropbox, iCal, Toodledo.com and others. But with the latest update, keeping your tasks synced across Todo apps on the iPhone, iPad and Mac just got a whole lot easier. On the iDevice, it’s a matter of going into Settings, Synchronization, Service and tapping on the iCloud button. Assuming you’re already on iOS 5 and signed in on your device, the app requires no other data input from your end. You don’t even have to press a sync button – it all happens in the background. The free Todo Lite for the iPhone was also updated to include support for the iCloud.

Whether you are an employee or business owner, having fast access to portable and reliable tools is a necessity when it comes to overall productivity. Utilizing iPhone and iPad business applications is an excellent way to manage and control your work and take advantage of the latest in wireless broadband technology. Because of the overabundance of iDevice apps available, choosing the right ones to have on hand can be a confusing process. Before getting lost in the world of business apps, try these 10 apps that every businessperson should have readily available in order to get the most out of their work.

10. Documents To Go® Premium 

Documents To Go Premium lets you create, view, and edit Word, Excel and powerpoint files like you would on your laptop or PC/Mac. It supports the ever popular Microsoft Office Suite (2007/2008/2010) and includes syncing capabilities with everything from documents on your computer (via free desktop apps for both Windows and Mac) to your Google Docs. A slightly cheaper version – Documents To Go® – Office Suite – is also available ($9.99 instead of $16.99), though the ability to edit PPT files is only found in the Premium app.

Documents To Go is a universal app that works on all iDevices.

9. Skype

With Skype, you have the ability to make video calls and connect with your clientele or associates on another level. Being able to use the app on both Wi-Fi and 3G networks allows your business to stay in touch while on-the-go. With the recent release of Skype for iPad, you can finally carry out 2-way video chats with colleagues and clients on the iPad. And if you live in North America, a monthly $2.99 Skype subscription plan allows you to place unlimited calls to anywhere in the US and Canada.

Skype Skype Software, Skype, 16.9 MB – Free

8. Print Magic

Print Magic takes the hassle out of setting up wired connections on different printers. The ability to print out text, photos and documents directly from your iPhone or iPad via a Wi-Fi network on any printer is an excellent way to save time and be more productive. If only Apple’s AirPrint functionality worked on any printer on the market…

Then sync your todos with Todo Online, iCal, Outlook and Toodledo to ensure that your data is always safe. The user-friendly interface is what makes this to-do app stand out, making it one of the more popular productivity apps on the App Store.

Keynote is a universal app that works on all iDevices.

Keynote Apple, Keynote, 119 MB – $9.99

5. InerTrak

If you work on multiple projects, this app helps keep you up to date with progress and productivity. Record the amount of time you spend on projects throughout the day and even create a list of separate clients, each with optional hourly rates. This time-tracking tool helps to discover constraints in your everyday processes and is ideal for professionals who charge by the hour, like lawyers, web designers and contractors.

InerTrack is a universal app that works on all iDevices.

Aside from using it for drafting up text messages, notes and quick emails, Dragon Dictation also allows users to update their Social Networking statuses (Facebooks and Twitter) directly from within the app. This is definitely one of the most productive apps you can have on your iPhone.

Instead of holding on to business cards or punching the info into your phone manually, the app allows you to take a snapshot and save. It automatically reads the text on the card and converts the information into new contacts on your phone. WorldCard is certainly one of the best of its kind on the App Store and received a Kiss It (5/5) rating from TouchMyApps.

WorldCard Mobile - business card reader & business card scanner Penpower, WorldCard Mobile (TMA Review), 11.3 MB – $5.99

1. eWallet 

eWallet is an award winning app designed to let you virtually and securely store your passwords, credit-card information, bank accounts, and more. eWallet uses government-level security to ensure protection of your data. It also allows you to use your information securely on the web without worry about identity theft.

With the fast-paced business life of today, it’s often easy to forget the little things. And sometimes those things turn out not to be so little. Of course any sensible person knows the preferred way to keep track of all the stuff to do and remember is a post-it note on your desktop monitor. But this way, although awesome in many respects, presents an issue when you need to look up something while away from your desk. I know the obvious way out is to haul around your monitor with you, but a smart person would probably opt for something like Todo.

Todo is one of leading applications for task management on the iDevice, victim of many a rave review. And while for some, the idea of managing all tasks on a portable device like the iPhone may inspire dread of either losing it or possibly wasting hours with the virtual keyboard, the diverse syncing options of Todo will be there to relieve the stress.

Todo features various ways of handling your tasks. First of all, entering a new one is handy with a quick-add bar at the top, invaluable for those GTD followers (for those of you not familiar, that is David Allen’s infamous Getting Things Done methodology). This way it will be stored in your inbox and you can come back to it a later time to customize the options. And there is quite a lot to customize! It has all the traditional fields including the due date and time, configurable recurrence settings, priority, lists, contents, tags and alerts. Even more so, you can add custom tasks like checklists and projects, allowing nested subtasks or even preset a call or an e-mail to an iPhone contact.

The syncing options command attention as well. Along with the ubiquitous Toodledo.com synchronization, the developers offer their own Todo Online cloud syncing (Mac-only for now) and web task management, as well as a desktop application for both Mac (iCal) and PC (Outlook) to sync task information over local Wi-Fi. I tried the Toodledo.com and desktop app options and they work fine, though remember that for nested tasks you’ll need a premium Toodledo account.

Aside from the many features that’ll help you stay on top of a busy schedule, Todo’s user-friendly interface ties everything together in one neat package. It is amazingly sleek and manages to combine the look and feel of a native iOS app with rich visual cues, like customizable task striking, themed priority icons and some other minor but tasty effects. The only thing I really felt missing in Todo was a calendar view of the tasks, which would come very handy when planning out your next actions. And despite the trusty quick-add box at the top, GTD’ers should take into consideration that there is no way to mark the action required, apart from creating custom tags.

If all you’re looking for is a dedicated task manager, you’ll struggle to find one better than Appigo’s Todo. The superb interface is one of the best I’ve seen on the iDevice and all the necessary features are on board to provide for seamless tracking all of your tasks and activities, including various options of syncing the data with the cloud or your desktop computer. If what you’re looking for is something even more robust, able not only to keep the tasks in one place, but to show the calendar plans as well, I would go for something like Pocket Informant (Calendar & Tasks) (TMA Review) instead.

This is a review of Todo for the iPhone. Todo for iPad can be found here on the App Store.

With this I declare Todo officially touched!

One of the great things about the iDevice is that you can count on plenty of Todo type apps to help you get organized and (hopefully) be more productive. One such app happens to be Gennubi’s Nubi Do and it’s now FREE for a limited time. While it wasn’t built from the ground up using David Allen’s Getting Things Done methodology in mind (unlike Nozbe and OmniFocus), Nubi sports a clean and uncluttered interface and has plenty of useful features – some of which include:

  • Import/Export to Google™ Docs Spreadsheet.
  • Sort and filter tasks instantly at a touch of a finger (or manually sort tasks)
  • Assign priorities and due dates.
  • Create and assign tags and contexts.
  • Lock & passcode protect individual todo lists.
  • Full screen note viewer with data detection (linkable email/web addresses etc)

One feature missing is Push Notification for set reminders, but if it’s not a deal breaker for you, Nubi Do is a great choice for what it does. Its import/export function, full screen note viewer and ability to password protect projects/lists (among other things) makes it one of the better todo apps I’ve come across on the App Store. With it’s current price tag of $0 (previously $9.99), productivity hounds and those who need a task manager shouldn’t miss out on this sweet offer.

Nubi Do (ToDo List / Task Manager) Gennubi, Nubi Do (ToDo List / Task Manager), 1.5 MB – Free

Never lose your data. Import/Export your tasks from/to Google™ Spreadsheets and use it as a simple backup solution or rapid data entry for bulk tasks.

Multiple viewing, sorting and filtering options give you a variety of ways to slice and dice your data. Nubi do also contains a calendar view so you can see all of your tasks for any particular day.

Attach free form notes, assign priorities, due dates and recurrence to any task.

Voodo – Todo Magic In Review – Some Voodoo, to help you do what you do! http://www.touchmyapps.com/2010/05/10/voodo%e2%80%93todo-magic-in-review/ http://www.touchmyapps.com/2010/05/10/voodo%e2%80%93todo-magic-in-review/#comments Mon, 10 May 2010 07:21:01 +0000 http://www.touchmyapps.com/?p=32619 Today, there are many different “to do” apps in the App Store.  Everything from a tweaked notepad app, to a full fledged list/chart/reminder/push notifications/etc type app wallows with its pushy digital brethren.  Today I got my hands on something that’s a more or less in the middle.  Developer IWonderPhone’s app, Voodo – Todo Magic, is an … Read more]]>

Today, there are many different “to do” apps in the App Store.  Everything from a tweaked notepad app, to a full fledged list/chart/reminder/push notifications/etc type app wallows with its pushy digital brethren.  Today I got my hands on something that’s a more or less in the middle.  Developer IWonderPhone’s app, Voodo – Todo Magic, is an interesting todo app that incorporates a lot of great features without packing on the unnecessary garbage.  From the outside looking in, Voodoo Todo itself seems promising. Read on to see if Voodo had the magic touch.

When it comes to “to do” apps I have seen designs gone completely over the top incorporating all sorts of textures and depth, to some so simple you would wonder why they bothered. Voodo sits pretty happily in the middle in my opinion. Designed nice enough to not look like garbage but stay simple and clean enough to remind you that the app was built for convenience and efficiency, not to win a beauty pageant. A lot of design elements have taken cues from the iPhone UI which helps using the app feel much more “organic” and “native”.

Now one thing that I think is kind of neat and different is the devs approach to the app. Instead of having calendars and lists of what’s due today, tomorrow, next week/month, he broke it down to simply Now and Next. When you logically look at the things you have to do, it’s usually looked at in the way of “what do I have to do now” and them afterwards “what’s next”. It’s a fresh way to look at things and after awhile I actually found I was able to keep on top of things much better when working and thinking about them in terms of now and next.

Another great feature of the app is the tag system. Similar to how a blog site sorts its posts for easy searching. You can attach tags to your items that then allow you to filter for that specific tag on the main page. Just tap the icon in the bottom right and select our tag. I really appreciate this feature as a lot of my to do items are somewhat similar and using a tag system along side my items allows me to see what type of tasks I’m spending all my time on. You can also sort your list based on 3 different criteria. The default now/next, level of importance (high to low) and location (based on the locations you’ve saved while entering your items).

Adding an item is just a matter of tapping the + symbol at the top. Once started you have all sorts of fields you can fill out. Some really clever integration allows you to select people from your contacts list to attach to the item. You can also add the usual items like date/time/location/etc.

Now if at any time you need a hand figuring out a feature just tap the gear icon o get the settings page.  The manual is available by selecting it at the bottom of the page. Also there is the ability to sync your items with your Google Calendar. So not only do you have a list of your to do items. But you’ll also have it recorded on your phone (if you sync with Google cal.) and anywhere else you can access the web. The only thing missing in my opinion is push notification. I know that for developers, adding the service is extra cost and work. However I think that it would really have put this app over the top.

All in all this is a really great little app. Taking what’s good about simplicity while avoiding the design perils that typically plague “simple” apps, the developer has definitely changed up how I look at a to do list. If you’re the type of person that loves keeping track of everything you have to do and want to change it up a bit then I definitely think you’ll like Voodoo Todo Magic.

When I first switched over to the iPhone 3G from my Sony Erricson P910i (bless that phone), one of the things I missed most was the ability of programs to run in the background. My primary need on the P910i was for third party Todo apps to notify me of reminders/events via a screen pop up (along with a sound) even when they were “closed”. While the iPhone still doesn’t support apps running in the background, the introduction of the Push Notification feature with the 3.0 OS update has helped solve this particular issue. Thankfully, Appigo’s Todo (one of the most robust and fully featured todo app we reviewed here) now supports Push and users can FINALLY get instant pop up alerts of upcoming tasks, no matter what it is they’re doing on their iDevice. For those not familiar with the push feature, I have included a mini run-down on how to get it up and running with the Todo app.

★★ NEW ★★ Task alert reminders in Todo 3.0 using Apple’s Push Notification Service (requires iPhone OS 3.0 or newer)! Not sure about Todo? Download Todo Lite (a FREE download on the App Store).

What’s New

  • Built using iPhone OS 3.0 SDK (iPhone OS 3.0 or newer required)
  • New task alert reminders via Apple Push Notification Service
  • Improved task sharing using email
  • Select due date from displayed calendar dates with one tap
  • Randomly select list color during initial sync with Toodledo or RTM
  • Allow setting repeat option for project subtasks
  • Use OR logic when filtering tasks with tags
  • Fix screen redraw during and after phone call
  • Fix to prevent duplicate tags
  • Other minor bugfixes

First and foremost, you have to have OS 3.0 installed. Versions prior to this do not support push. When you enter the ‘Settings’ menu on your iDevice, you will see an option for ‘Notifications’.

todo30_1 Upon tapping it, you will be taken to a screen that shows you all the apps you have installed that have support for the Push Notification feature. As well, this is where you will be able to explicitly turn it on/off. Just remember that when it is on, your battery usage will increase somewhat.

todo30_2

todo30_6

Next, tap on Todo to bring up options to turn Alerts and Sounds on/off. If you prefer not to hear anything when the alert arrives on your main screen, just simply toggle Sounds off.

Once you’re done here, open up Todo and head to the settings page, located on the bottom right of screen (icon with gears). Find the Alerts panel and tap it.

todo30_4

todo30_5

If this is your first time using Todo 3.0, you will be prompted to enter your name and email address (with which the system will send you an email in order to activate this alert service and verify the address you provided. With this out of the way, you will then be able to choose via “Task Alerts” just how far in advance you want to be alerted of any upcoming tasks (5 mins, 15 mins…1 hour and up to 2 days before). Under Alert Sounds, you can select up to four simple sounds you want to hear when the alert arrives (Bells, data, flute and Morse).

todo30_3Now when you create a task within the app and set a due date (by day and even time), an alert box will pop up according to the time frame you have selected in the Task Alert panel. So far, the push alerts have worked well for me; they pretty much arrived instantaneously and the notification box even pops up while other apps are being used (perfect for when you’re hitting that favorite game on the go and still need the reminders).

Arguably one of the best (if not the best) Todo apps for the iDevice just got better with its Push Notification function, along with the other new features. If you’re one of those users who prefer to get task/todo alerts right on your iPhone, you really should take a good look at Appigo’s offering. If you’re hesitant with the $9.99 price tag, they even have a free lite version that also supports push, just so you can see for yourself if its worth your hard earned money.

As a side note, for those who rely on Remember the Milk (RTM) (the best online to do list and task management system in my opinion) you can also have it sync to Appigo’s Todo app. Personally, I rely on RTM heavily while I am on my desktop (which is a big chunk of the day) to keep my schedule and never ending reminders in order. Being able to sync my RTM lists/tasks to Appigo’s Todo  (and vice versa) is the perfect way for me to keep my tasks up-to-date even when I am on the road. As well, the push features worked just fine while items from RTM where synced to Appigo’s app. Mind you, there is an annual $25 “Pro” subscription fee just to sync Remember the milk to mobile devices. For those serious about their GTDs, $2 a month is quite a bargain.

For any who have read my Pocket Informant review, you already know what got me into looking for apps that sync to online services, but for those of you who haven’t read it yet, I’ll give a brief summary of my need for online back up. At first, I depended on the inbuilt notes app and calendar for everything, but my old PC decided to quit syncing my calendar app and contacts to Outlook, and of course my notes, which included my todos simply didn’t sync when I first got my iPhone 3G. To top it all off, backing up my iPhone to iTunes seemed just a colossal waste of my free time.

The first iPhone crash was tolerable, and I thought I knew what triggered it, and avoided pulling that trigger. I laboriously re-entered all my events, todos, and notes (as well as I could anyways). But after the second crash, I was fed up, and desperately started to look for apps which would back up my events, notes, and todos to online services.

todo2

At first I tried Zenbe (which was free at that time), and it was all right. But I kept looking at Todo, thinking “that’s a right decent looking todo app”, and one day I gave into my impulse and bought it (I do that too often with apps these days). I love the icon, a simple squarish checkmark on royal blue, all glossed over. Simple but cool. I began to set up a Toodledo account, and getting my lists and todos sorted out. Syncing Todo to Toodledo was flawless, and it has remained fast and reliable. I’ve never had anything not completely sync.

todo3

The lists are easy to create or delete, and I found myself creating a lot of lists for everything from todos to projects to music I wanted to buy. But after looking at the all lists (smartview wasn’t in the app then), I found myself lost among things like movies I wanted to see, music I wanted to pick up, and lots of other stuff. Picking out actual todos amidst all that was simply not efficient. But as I looked through the app settings, I found a list filter for the all list, and it let me uncheck lists I didn’t want showing up in that master list. Well, that made things a whole lot more efficient.

todo4

The app has tags and it also has contexts: something I hadn’t used till I started using Pocket Informant (also syncs to Toodledo). At that time, tasks had four options, task, call someone, email someone, or visit website. The latter three are all supported with live links. Something I found to be immensely useful is recurring tasks. Here for instance, you can set ‘pay rent’ to recur on the 25th of every month. It also has some nice options like strikeout style for completed tasks: a variety that ranges from crayon strikeouts to blended colors, to ‘gone fishing’ to daises, to ‘under construction’.

After closing the Todo, I noticed there was a badge with the number of due and overdue tasks. Annoying! I can’t relax if I’m constantly reminded there’s some things that need to be done. Reopened the app, rummaged around settings, and found an option to turn the badge off. Relief!

todo5Some recent additions have made an awesome app…… awesomer. A choice of icons sets for priority marking along with tasks with lists, tasks with subtasks, locations, and SMS someone have squeezed into recent updates. The functions, ‘task with a list’ and ‘task with subtasks’ took me a while to figure out (I’m supposing the damned tutorial is on Appigo’s website – why couldn’t they provide an in app help section?). After ‘getting it’, lists is just simply a list with a choice for type of task, and subtasks include due dates, contexts, and all other options.

The date selector now takes you to a monthview calendar, and selecting a date on monthview is without doubt easier and faster than the roll to date thing they had before (and which the inbuilt calendar uses). All lists can be color coded, and all tasks belonging to that list carry the assigned color. Each list displays the number of total tasks as well as a red tab that shows the number of overdue tasks.

todo6

There are two things that I forgot to mention. First, while synced to Toodledo, the app can also sync to Remember The Milk (for $25 a year after a two month free trial). In order to sync a task with a list or subtasks, you need a Toodledo Pro subscription which is also $25.

Overall, the interface is easy and I haven’t experienced any lag, ever. Todo is an awesome todo app! If you don’t also need a desktop app (e.g. Remember The Milk or Toodledo online services suffice); and you don’t need subtasks within subtasks, then this app will do all you need with speed, simplicity, and some nice graphics. Todo is worth more than the ¥1200 ($10US) I spent on it.

I’ll first get into what got me looking for an app like Pocket Informant. At first I was thrilled to enter my appointments into the inbuilt Apple Calendar, and it worked alright, till my PC decided to quit syncing my calendar and contacts (old PC took far too long to back up my iPhone). A couple iPhone crashes later, and re-entering all my events and contacts twice over, I was scrambling to find apps that would back up my calendar, to dos, notes, and contact info online.

Saisuke and Todo were the answers for calendar and Todos, and besides only being able to use one calendar on Saisuke initially, they both were efficient, and synced to free online services. Perfect! Except that since I don’t have a lot of to-dos, I rarely opened the Todo app, and I missed doing a couple important things. I was thinking, “why isn’t there an app that takes care of both events and Todos”, and then SmartTime came along. I quickly discovered how much I needed monthview (at that time, not included in SmartTime). Currently, SmartTime is on the way to becoming useful, but it’s still a little convoluted.

Then I picked up on rumors of Pocket Informant. Reading the description, former Window Mobile Pocket Informant user’s rave reviews, and looking at the screenshots, I eagerly awaited Pocket Informant’s release. Once I downloaded the app, I thought that the icon is damn ugly. The red center made me think of a clown’s nose (and I’m not fond of clowns).

review-productivity-pocketinformant-01-month

So let’s open this app… and monthview was awesome! The timebars make seeing a days scheduled events for a day easy. Monthview is what I work from. Tapping a day brings up a window with a list of events and todos for that day, and swiping changes the month. That’s pretty much all I need to view my calendar…

But I should go into the other calendar views as well, since this is supposed to a comprehensive review.

Weekview puts Today into a large box at the top of the screen, divides the screen in half below it, and then into columns of three days. For days with a lot of events, you can either scroll by swiping up on a day, or tap the day to see a larger list of events for that day. Dayview and listview are the same as those in the inbuilt Apple Calendar.

review-productivity-pocketinformant-03-week

Adding new events is easy but at times slow, and editing and deleting events can be even slower still. Twenty seconds to delete a single recurring appointment…. frustrating when I’ve got ten more recurring appointments to delete.

Setting up my various calendars to Gcal was weird. I couldn’t get some calendars that came with Pocket Informant to delete on both Pocket Informant and Gcal. Syncing would bring the calendars back. I tried a lot of things, and when I finally got them permanently deleted off both Gcal and Pocket Informant, I wasn’t even sure how I did it.

Aside from some initial difficulties, and times when Gcal is ‘doing stuff’, sync has been flawless. Updates will make these functions a whole lot faster. After talking to the developer on the WebIS forum, I have faith that his company will eventually make this app a lot more efficient. My only wish for event management is copy and paste of events, and that too, is planned.

Going onto the Todo functions, I’d first have to say that I’m not the best person to ask, since I don’t have a lot of to dos and certainly no projects. I’ll say it works well enough for me. I’ve got a list of tasks like ‘pay electric bill’ in one folder, and wait…. I actually do have one project (it’s been kind of waylaid by unenthusiasm on the wife’s part). Anyways they work well for putting things on the correct day for when they are to be done, or letting me know what’s next to do on the a project in the ‘Today’ view (just a list of events and tasks for a day).

review-productivity-pocketinformant-05-todogroups

The other I use is contexts for lists, such as movies I want to rent, music I want to buy, grocery lists, etc. Stuff I don’t want showing up in the Today view. Pocket Informant comes with some other functions like ‘next action’, and ‘starred’. But I’m not qualified to comment on those, since I’ve never used them.

Never had a problem with syncing tasks to Toodledo.

Pocket Informant’s developers have an excellent track record on other platforms, and the constant work on their app and professionalism of their responses to their users has earned them my faith. In short, it is an app that does everything I need it to do. Navigation, and everything else is intuitive. I wouldn’t yet recommend this app to a power user (someone who needs to add, edit, and delete a lot of events) – It’s still far too slow at times for that. I don’t doubt it’ll be up to speed in the future though.

And the ugly ‘clown’ icon has now grown on me….
