Any.do vs Things in our news:
2015. To-do app Any.do 3.0 adds collaboration features
Any.do has unveied version 3.0 of its app for iPhone, Android, Web, Chrome and Mac, which is shipping with no less than 150 new features and now comes with specific support for Android tablet users. It’s offering a new dynamic zooming feature that will let you look across a group of to-do lists, and then quickly move in to look at one in particular. Of course, you could in the past navigate from one to the other in a master list, but here Any.do has played on the idea of fluid gestures to speed up access. Another multitasking feature it’s adding is the ability to collaborate with more than one kind of group. Other would-be productivity app rivals like Evernote years ago incorporated the idea of having a single identity for yourself that can be used to access and interact with business and personal documents in its app. That’s essentially what Any.do is adding here, with the ability to share a list as a “side project,” work teams, or with people you live with, with those who share then given access to edit the lists as needed.
2014. Task manager Any.do rolls out business version with collaboration features
Productivity service Any.do is expanding beyond its earlier consumer focus with a new set of features – and pricing plans – aimed at businesses. In the Any.do 2.0 release out today, colleagues and teams can now use Any.do’s task list application to collaborate on tasks, share files and more. These more advanced features will be available in both Any.do 2.0 free and Any.do 2.0 Premium, the latter which will be a subscription-based service costing $5/month or $45/year. Free users will be able to collaborate with 2 members per task, while paid users can collaborate with as many people as they wish. Meanwhile, free users are limited to file uploads of 5 MB max from Dropbox and sharing 5 “Moments” (Any.do’s daily planner) per month, while paid users have no such restrictions.
2014. Any.do unveils a browser-version of its to-do list app
Mobile task list Any.do has now released a free browser-based Web application, which syncs across devices. The Web version includes modes for users to see tasks in one column or across all folders at once. If you've used Any.Do's mobile apps, everything here should feel pretty familiar. The goal is to make your task list accessible from anywhere, and the web obviously plays a crucial part in that strategy. When you launch the new web experience, you'll see a list of tasks waiting to be completed. But thankfully there's more to be discovered; Any.Do has built in two modes that take advantage of the fact that you're using a full web browser with plenty of room on screen.
