With the amazing features of iOS 4, monitoring and completing tasks during the day is now possible even when Todo isn't running.
Orem, UT (PRWEB) September 28, 2010
Appigo, Inc., a worldwide leader of high quality iPhone and iPad apps, today introduced Todo™ 4, a significant major upgrade to the company's popular to-do list app for the iPhone and iPad, featuring secure passcode locking, multiple reminder alerts per task, and full support for iOS 4. Todo 4 for iPhone and iPod touch includes intelligent iOS 4 features including hi-res Retina display graphics, true background multitasking, local task reminder alert notification, and live app badge updating. Todo 4 also includes support for Todo Online™, a brand new cloud synchronization service for tasks.
"Appigo has taken Todo 4 to a new level that is far beyond other to-do list apps available on the iPhone or iPad," said Calvin Gaisford, Appigo's CEO. "With the amazing features of iOS 4, monitoring and completing tasks during the day is now possible even when Todo isn't running."
Todo 4 includes many optimizations that take advantage of multitasking in iOS 4. When users receive a phone call or switch to another app during a task synchronization, Todo 4 continues to run until the synchronization finishes in the background. Another feature exclusive to Todo 4 is live badge updating, which uses local notifications to continuously keep the badge count on the iPhone home screen up-to-date with the number of tasks actually due based on the iPhone's current time.
Although Todo 4 for iPad will continue to use Apple's Push Notification system for delivering task reminder alerts, the iPhone version of Todo 4 takes full advantage of iOS 4's new local notifications to remind users of tasks regardless of their device's network connectivity. Appigo plans to release a free update to Todo for iPad with full iOS 4 support when iOS 4.2 for iPad is available later this year (Todo for iPad with support for iOS 4 contingent upon Apple releasing iOS 4.2 for iPad: http://www.apple.com/ipad/software-update/).
Todo 4 for both iPhone and iPad includes passcode locking for the entire app which allows users to enter in a four digit code to prevent others from accessing sensitive task information. Another new feature provided in the release is the ability for users to add multiple reminder alerts for any given task, each customizable for specific reminder times.
Todo 4 integrates with Todo Online, a brand new over-the-air cloud sync for tasks. Todo Online allows users to synchronize their tasks between iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, and the desktop using a standard 3G or Wi-Fi connection. Todo Online also provides users with an easy way to access their tasks from any modern web browser.
Appigo has also released updates to their desktop task synchronization app, Appigo Sync, which allows users to sync their tasks with iCal (Mac) and Outlook (Windows). iCal users get the benefit of utilizing Todo's multiple reminder alerts for each task.
