Popular to-do app Todoist is receiving a material design update, and it looks great

todoist material

Todoist is a pretty popular todo app (and associated service) and we can say this with authority; we use it behind the scenes at Ausdroid, and we think it’s pretty fantastic. However, one thing that it has been for quite some time is a little bit … well, ugly. While the functionality is top notch, they’ve been a little bit behind the curve with material design, but that is very quickly about to come to a screaming halt.

todoist-old-vs-new-1As you can see in the old vs new shots (above), they’re really chalk and cheese. One is bright and beautiful, in keeping with Google’s Material Design guidelines. The other is yesterday’s news. While the paintjob has been updated, the same great functionality remains beneath, ensuring that Todoist is going to remain a popular todo service for quite some time to come, especially insofar as Android is concerned.

If you’d like to get your hands on the material update before it hits the Google Play Store, you can apply to join the beta test groupand get some early access going.

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.
