Microsoft To-Do on iOS updated with iPad, iOS 11 support and lots of fixes

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.

Microsoft To-Do now has an iPad layout.

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.
