For 32 years, Microsoft Windows has been changing the way the world gets things done. Today, we’re thrilled to add to that productive legacy with our all-new native Todoist for Windows 10 app!
With this Preview, we’re bringing our signature distraction-free design and powerful task management features to Windows 10. Starting with a rock-solid foundation from the popular Todoist Windows client TaskCrunch– an app we acquired earlier this year along with its founder, Jan Kratochvil– our Windows team set to work creating Todoist’s first ever native desktop app.
“Our ultimate goal is to make Todoist the best to-do list app on the planet, on any Windows-powered device. The ambition is to keep the distinctive experience that is Todoist, while incorporating elements that make Windows 10 apps truly universal. We’re especially excited about allowing Todoist for Windows 10 users to transition seamlessly from mouse to touch and pen and work on any screen size,” says Jan, our Head of Windows.
The result of months of work is a beautifully customizable, feature-rich task manager built specifically for Windows 10 users.
Here’s what you can expect in this first Preview version:
A native app built just for Windows 10
Todoist for Windows 10 will be our first ever native desktop app – that means faster performance, seamless offline support, complete compatibility with your touch screen computers, and a Todoist look-and-feel that’s optimized for Windows.
And of course, your to-do lists will be deeply integrated with all your favorite Windows 10 features. Today, we’re launching the Preview with customizable Live Tiles and actionable notifications with Cortana integration soon to come.
A completely customizable workflow
Our goal is to build a flexible, yet powerful app that empowers you to get things done your way. Use Todoist for Windows’ customizable organizational features like sub-tasks, sub-projects, labels, and filters to create the workflow that makes sense for you.
Group discussions in context
Todoist for Windows 10 will be our first ever platform to support a 3-pane view. This means your group discussions will always be in context with a side-by-side overview of your projects, tasks, comments, and attached files. The 3-pane view makes it easier than ever to collaborate with coworkers, family members, and friends while moving your important projects forward in Todoist for Windows.
Interactive notifications for instant, actionable updates
Get notified of upcoming tasks and never forget another important deadline. Our brand-new, interactive notifications allow you to receive and complete task reminders without ever entering the Todoist app.
And much more to come…
This preview of Todoist for Windows 10 is just the beginning. There’s a good chance that you might encounter a few bugs in the system or discover features that are still missing. Most notably, this first app preview isn’t optimized for Windows 10 phones, and is fully supported only in English for now.
In the coming months, our Windows team will be adding powerful new features like advanced filters, completed task history, and Cortana integration; optimizing Todoist for Windows 10 Mobile; adding support for all of our 20+ languages; and generally polishing the app to perfection.
“After the Preview release, we’ll immediately start refining the app, fixing any bugs, and adding some awesome new features. We’re really looking forward to the input we’ll receive from our community. You will be the ones who will help us decide which features to prioritize and how to take full advantage of Windows 10 capabilities,” says Jan.
