2Do for Mac v1.5 highlights

This update is a result of several months of refinements and redesign. The actual changelog was far too big (more than 10 pages, A4 size). This update is packed with tons of intuitive visual and content layout improvements. We revisited every single pixel to make it more appealing, and to give you a robust, intuitive user experience.

Without further ado, here are some of the key highlights you’ve all been waiting for:

  • Ready for Mavericks

  • Dropbox Sync overhauled

    Completely written from scratch to make sync much faster, better and error free. It learns as you use the app and will seamlessly sync in the background without user intervention.

  • Project View

    A new easy to use mode where you only see your project and its subtasks and nothing else. Access it directly from the left list panel or use the new shortcut keys.

  • List Groups

    An addition layer of organization. Manage, sort, order or show / hide related lists in their own groups. You can also re-order lists between groups. You can mix Smart lists and normal lists together under the same List Group.

  • Collapsible Task Sections

    Collapse or expand grouped tasks. 2Do now cleverly remembers your preference when navigating within the app.

  • The Drop Bar

    A new and easy way of performing frequent tasks such as deferrals, duplicating / copying, deleting or sharing tasks using a simple drag and drop gesture.

  • Smarter Calendar

    The calendar control is now even more useful and smarter than before. Option+Click to add a task to a date, select a single date or multiple dates to filter on tasks and drag and drop for quick deferrals.

  • Smarter Focus Lists

    Drag and drop on the Starred Focus list to quickly Star your tasks, or on top of the Scheduled Focus list to quickly assign Start dates to your tasks.

  • Project / Checklist Sorting / Focus

    You can now sort or apply the focus filter to projects and checklists separately from their lists

  • Archived Lists

    Done with a list and no longer wish to see it, but still would like to keep it around? Archive it. Lists can be archived but still take part in global search.

  • Hidden Scheduled Tasks

    2Do now cleverly displays a Scheduled Tasks toggle button when there are scheduled tasks (i.e. tasks that start some time in the future) available in the visible list or smart list. Simply click or use a keyboard shortcut to toggle their visibility. Finally, a list that’s clutter free.

  • Moving tasks to Projects

    You can now move tasks to projects or create a new task inside a project directly from edit / add mode, including Quick Entry.

  • Quick Add with Quick Entry

    Once you’re done entering a task into Quick Entry, simply hit the Quick Entry hotkey combination again to quickly add the entered task and then re-show Quick Entry for adding a new task.

  • Color band

    A new and improved way of showing and assigning colors to lists. The color band now shows a soft glow to reflect current task selection for quick reference. Double click to quickly assign a new color.

  • Improved global Sort Bar

    The sort bar above the task list is now the only relevant place where you will find useful information about the current state of your list.

  • Improved Global Search

    You can now search through all your lists using the global search field without having to switch between lists. Simply select ‘All Lists’ in search preferences and you’re done.
