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.
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.
Appigo’s Todo, a highly capable and fully featured task management app for the iPhone/iPod Touch has just received a significant update that finally takes full advantage of iOS 4.0. Todo now supports Hi-Res graphics for the Retina Display, multitasking, ability to create multiple alerts per task and even local notification. For those who rely on Todo to keep track of their busy work schedules, these new additions will undoubtedly make the app even more handy.
Coinciding with this 4.0 update, Appigo has also launched their new Todo Online service, which allows for over-the-air Cloud sync for all your iDevices that run Todo. The asking price for this new feature will cost $19.99, and a 14 day trial subscription is also available. Make sure you grab this update if you’ve already purchased the app.
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.

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.
Earlier this month, we touched on the release of the first non-game/entertainment app to integrate the social gaming platform Openfeint for the iPhone. Well, that very app, Dunnit! is now FREE for 1 day, courtesy of FreeAppaDay.com. With its easy to use interface and features that include tagging, repeating tasks and multiple task entry (not to mention Twitter and Openfeint integration), its hard not to like Runloop’s Dunnit! And now that the price tag has dropped from $4.99 to FREE, this is one App Store download you shouldn’t miss out on today.

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.

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.
