Here are the latest news about Todoist:

16.11.16 Todoist uses machine learning to predict your task due dates


Popular task management service Todoist wants to help you reschedule your task and even out the work load using machine learning. There’s a new “Reschedule” button next to the overdue section. The service intelligently suggests new due dates for all these overdue tasks based on many different data points. It also works with unscheduled tasks. Todoist learns from you. For regular tasks, such as errands, Todoist remembers when you usually complete these tasks and assign them to the same day. You might also have a ton of upcoming tasks, so Todoist will make sure that all tasks are distributed evenly so that you can actually get stuff done. Todoist also knows when you stop working when you stop completing tasks. So the service won’t suggest to reschedule due tasks to today if it’s already late.



2016 Todoist adds new collaboration features


Task management service Todoist is going to completely overhaul its collaboration features so that Todoist Business version becomes a full-fledged task management service for enterprise users. From now all team members can see an activity log so that you can see your newly assigned tasks, new comments and more. It’s a bit more powerful than that as you can filter by dates, person, project and action. Think about it as a sort of feed for everything that’s happening across all your projects. Besides, you can now attach notes to a specific project. This could be useful if you want to write notes that are relevant across the entire projects as task comments will inevitably disappear once a task is marked as completed. And finally, the quick add feature is getting a revised user interface. This change will benefit all Todoist users and not just team members.



2015 Todoist redesigned its web app


Popular task management service Todoist has revamped its web app to make it a bit more modern with more whitespace and a flat design. The tick boxes are now round, and there are some subtle animations when you hover over icons. It looks more like the company’s iOS and Android apps, which is not a bad thing. Todoist also added natural language processing. Previously only available on mobile, this feature lets you add tasks with due dates in a single sentence. For example, you could write “Take out the trash every Sunday,” and Todoist will create a recurring task called “Take out the trash.” While natural language processing is particularly useful on mobile, bringing feature parity avoids confusion when you try to do something on the web and it’s only available on mobile. It is worth noting that this feature works in 14 different languages.



2015 Task manager Todoist launches new Android app



Popular task manager Todoist just received a major Android update with a completely overhauled user interface and very efficient new features. The app switched to Material design in order to make a more polished interface that fits in better in Google’s operating system. It also added natural language processing as well as intruitive gestures in order to manage your tasks. You can quickly add task with a due date in your current todo list as Todoist now parses natural date input. For instance, you could type “Buy milk tomorrow” or “Go for a run every Friday” and the app will automatically understand that it should create a task (“Buy milk” or “Go for a run”) with a single or recurring due date. Much like in Mailbox and its plethora of followers, you can swipe to the right to complete a task, and swipe to the left to reschedule it. Other things have been streamlined, such as adding collaborators, creating subtasks and more.



2014 ToDoist arrives on Android Wear smartwatches



ToDoist is shrinking down its popular to-do app to fit on a smaller screen on Android Wear watches. ToDoist for Android Wear support is now included in the free app. Once installed on an Android Wear watch and wirelessly sync with a phone or tablet, ToDoist can be used to create tasks through voice commands by saying  “OK Google, start Todoist. Add task.” These tasks will sync over to your connected Android phone and be added to your task list. Since ToDoist also synchs data through the cloud, any tasks added from the watch will be available through ToDoist on the web, other Android devices, Apple iOS, Microsoft Windows, Mac, Chrome and other supported platforms. ToDoist also includes location-based notifications for tasks. Your watch might vibrate, for example, if you have a task to pick up milk and you’re nearing the supermarket.
