2Do adds support for 3D Touch, iPad multitasking, and Spotlight search

iPhone task manager 2Do has added several new features in its latest update. The app now features full support for iOS 9, including Spotlight search and iPad multitasking. Additionally, 2Do also supports 3D Touch on the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.

Those headline improvements aside, 2Do has also added to and improved upon a number of aspects, from keyboard commands to the Add Task screen. You'll find just some of the improvements below:

  • [NEW] Multi-tasking / Split screen support on iPads (on supported models)
  • [NEW] Siri Spotlight support. 2Do indexes all your tasks, along with extra information such as notes, dates, actions and image attachments so you can find them easily and be able to see quick snapshots in search.
  • [NEW] Home screen Quick Actions support for iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. Quickly create tasks, access all your today and tomorrow tasks and see an overview at the same time.
  • [NEW] Peek and Pop task previews for iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. 3D Previews also show the task's modification date and creation date.
  • [NEW] Add Task screen now has a special 'Lightning Bolt' button in the center of the screen. Tap on this in the middle of adding a task to quickly save and begin adding a new task. If you add a project, it cleverly selects it as the destination for the next task.
  • [NEW] On the iPhone when editing a task, you now have an up / down arrow visible at the top (similar to Mail app), which allows you to navigate to the next / previous task in the list without leaving the screen.
  • [NEW] Improved nag alerts; supported nag intervals are every 5mins, 15mins, 30mins, 1hr, day
  • [NEW] Start dates are now 1st class citizens. Similar to the due date shortcut bar when adding a new task, 2Do can now display one for picking start dates and times. Switch this ON from Settings > Appearance > Customize Date Shortcuts.
  • [NEW] A shortcut time-picker now appears under the default due date / start date bar when adding a new task and a date is picked. These individual times (4 in total) can be customized from Settings > Advanced > Default Due Time and Default Start Time.

You can download 2Do for iPhone and iPad from the App Store now.
