Microsoft To-Do on iOS has just received a pretty big update today, with the latest version 1.13 introducing an iPad-optimized layout, iOS 11 support and lots of fixes. The app still requires iOS 9.0 or later, but those of you running the latest iOS 11 betas should now have a much better experience (iOS 11 will be officially released on Tuesday, September 19).
The task manager app has also been improved with better support for third-party keyboards, better reliability when editing to-dos offline and more. You can check the full release notes below:
- Introducing iPad and iOS 11 support!
- Improved: Our sort options have been sorted out. Now the order of your lists will match across all of your devices.
- Fixed: Sometimes we didn’t recognize that certain keyboards were entering to-do titles. Now third-party keyboards can create to-dos with actual titles.
- Fixed: We also fixed the quirk that caused the list header to display oddly when renaming a list.
- Fixed: You can now edit and save notes offline without encountering the endless sync spinner.
- Fixed: And once edited, your notes will display every character correctly. We fixed the bug affecting certain Cyrillic characters.
- Fixed: We want to help remember all your important to-dos. Occasionally, though, we were a bit too persistent about reminding you. We got the message and will stop sending reminders for to-dos in deleted lists.
- Fixed: We also made it easier to edit your existing reminders. We fixed that pesky problem where the detail view wouldn’t open after tapping a reminder. Likewise, the date field will now display properly when setting custom dates and times for your reminders.
- Fixed: Reordering lists on iOS 11 would sometimes crash the app. No longer. Now that we support iOS 11, you may sort to your heart’s content.
On the iPad, the app doesn't make the best use of the screen real-estate, and unlike OneNote or Outlook, it doesn't have a two-column layout. The hamburger menu is still present in the top-left corner, and you'll have to tap it to access the app's settings and your different To-Do lists. But overall, Microsoft To-Do remains a good alternative to Apple's native Reminders app. You can get the latest version of Microsoft To-Do from the download link below.
