The iOS version of the Microsoft To Do app updated to Version 2.7 today. This latest update was a relatively small one but added support for Siri shortcuts and for iOS’ native share feature.

Here’s the official release notes:

  • Introducing Siri shortcuts! You can now add your own shortcuts for To Do. Just open settings, tap Siri Shortcuts and you can create shortcuts to open a specific list or to add a new task to a specific list.
  • We’re also very happy to share our, uh, share extension with you! Need to save a web page to your reading list or add something to your holiday shopping list in a hurry? Just tap the share button, select the list and we’ll do the rest.
  • Coming from Wunderlist? We’ve made it easier to reshare your shared lists. Share by email and we’ll add the email addresses of your previous list members.
  • You can now turn off notifications for shared lists. If those shared holiday shopping lists are getting a little too noisy, just head to settings and toggle shared list activity off.

This update follows the previous one which rolled out earlier in the month and added support for printing lists and improved the Wunderlist importing experience. Wunderlist is set to close in early-2020 so, if you’re still using that service, you should definitely import your tasks into To Do ASAP.
