Any.do gets a massive update to version 2.0 with a focus on collaboration

all-devices

 

Any.do, the popular to-do list management application for iOS, has received a huge update to version 2.0, which introduces a new focus on collaboration among teams and families. All of the app’s previous functions still work the way they did in previous versions, so existing users won’t need to re-learn anything, but those who want better support for groups and sharing will find a lot of useful enhancements in this update.

A new chat function allows members of a project to talk with each other, share files from Dropbox, add and remove group members, and more. Shared lists and tasks make it easy to quickly assign work, update the group’s progress, or just add something to a shared grocery list.

A few new features for premium users include custom background colors across the app, support for adding unlimited members to a group (limited to 2 for free users), or unlimited file sizes (where free users are limited to 5 MB). Premium users can also get highly-customizable repeating tasks and location-based reminders.

The Any.do app is free on the App Store. For the next two weeks, premium subscriptions can be purchased in-app for a special rate of $3 for a month or $27 for a year. After that the price returns to normal ($5/month, $45/year).

Google Wallet adds recurring bank transfers for automatically adding money, low balance alerts

Goog-Wallet-low-balance-alerts Goog-Wallet-recurring-transfer-01

Google today announced it’s adding new ways to add money to its Google Wallet service in addition to some new features that will make keeping an eye on your balance easier.

First up, you will now be able to setup automatic bank transfers that will ensure there is always money to spend in your Google Wallet account. The recurring transfers allow you to schedule weekly, bi-weekly or monthly deposits and can be cancelled at any time:

To set up a recurring transfer, go to “Add money” then select “Set up a recurring transfer”

The Google Wallet app is also adding a new low balance alerts feature that will send notifications when a Google Wallet balance gets below a certain amount. You can turn on the notifications and select which amount they want to trigger the alert: To set up Low Balance alerts, open the Google Wallet app and  touch“Low Balance alert” from the Wallet Balance screen.

Google’s Wallet payment service available for both iOS and Android is still limited to the US, allows users to send and receive money, but only offers contactless NFC-payments on supported Android hardware. Google also offers a physical Wallet Card that lets users spend their balance at any location MasterCard Debit cards are accepted.

Google is rolling out the new features to both the iOS and Android versions of the Google Wallet app starting this week for users in the US.

Microsoft OneNote for iPhone and iPad updated with iOS 8 support, iPhone 6 design, and more

screen322x572 screen322x572-1

Microsoft has pushed out updates for its OneNote client on both iPhone and iPad, adding support for new features added in iOS 8 and a design that’s optimized for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

Users can now password protect sections of documents directly from mobile devices (a feature that used to require a Windows PC). Those with an iPhone 5s or newer will also find that they can now unlock password-protected sections of documents using Touch ID. That feature isn’t mentioned in the iPad change log, so users on the iPad Air 2 or iPad mini 3 might need to wait for a future update to enable it.

iCloud Drive support is now present as well, allowing users to access files stored in Apple’s storage solution or in other third-party apps that have registered as document servers. Other additions, such as the ability to rearrange pages in the iPhone version or open notebooks stored on a self-hosted SharePoint Server round out the update’s feature set.

You can grab the iPhone or iPad version of OneNote for free on the App Store. Some features require an Office 365 subscription.
