What’s new in Nozbe 3.9

For this fall, we have prepared version 3.9 of Nozbe, designed to:

  • Improve communication via tasks thanks to adding links to tasks, and
  • Adjust our app to iOS 12’s new possibilities.

Nozbe 3.8 for iOS with powerful automation

In recent days, we released the new version of our app, Nozbe 3.8. We focused mainly on mobile apps to enrich native user experience in Nozbe. In this blogpost, I will focus on the new features in the iOS app. If you use Android please see this post.

Siri and Google Assistant can now talk 🗣 to Nozbe

With Nozbe 3.6 we can make your back-to-work time even more productive. You will now be able to easily capture tasks via Siri on your iPhone or via Google Assistant on your Android smartphone. Other cool features are the search option within your completed tasks 🔍✔️ and customizable Nozbe reminders 🛠🔔 . Let me show you what exactly you’re getting with Nozbe 3.6.

Upcoming Nozbe 3.6 and iOS 11 - a sneak peek at Siri and Drag&Drop

In this short video (3 minutes only!) I decided to give you a sneak peek at the future of Nozbe: see how in the current production version - Nozbe 3.5.2 you can already use Drag and Drop on an Apple device like iPad or iPhone on a beta version of iOS11… and in the new upcoming version 3.6 you’ll be able to use Siri to add tasks with voice!

Nozbe 3.3 - update for iOS 10

This time it’s all about iOS. Almost 50% of our users are already using iOS 10 and Nozbe 3.3 is dedicated to them. So take a look at what the Nozbe team has prepared for you :) Android and Windows fans don’t worry! Features for your platforms are being developed and we will ship them in future Nozbe releases.

Nozbe 3.1 – the most powerful Nozbe version ever

This week, we released Nozbe 3.1 on all supported platforms. We’re very excited to see how our new features will help you and your team get more done! :) As always, full release notes are available on our test blog.

In Nozbe 3.1, you can pin important comments so that they’re always visible on the top of a task’s comments section.

Nozbe 3.0 preview

The big day is coming. We are putting finishing touches to Nozbe 3.0 and cannot wait to share it with our great Nozbe users. We hope this will be the best gift for you to celebrate our 9th birthday :) And your feedback will be the best gift for us!

Today, we wanted to share some highlights from Nozbe 3.0:

It was back in August 2015 when our designer Hubert prepared a blogpost on our internal blog with a project of a new Nozbe logo. When Michael saw it he got a bit mad… because he realised how much he liked the new logo and that the change was necessary ;) I mean seriously! The new logo is so beautiful that Hubert was crying with tears of joy while drawing it. True story! ;)

New task details column

The new logo is the icing on the cake of a new design. With Nozbe 2.5 and 2.6 we introduced some major changes to the app design. We brought a new font, new colors, new icons, refreshed side panels and task list appearance. The last part of the app that needed a redesign was the task details column. That is kind of a place when the magic happens. In this view, you comment tasks, delegate them and complete them. You simply get everything done over there. First attempts to tweak the task details design were made in April 2015 but we could not agree on how it should look like. After months of discussions and tons of sketches we finally got to the solution which, although not so revolutionary, really improves the user experience.

Regarding Nozbe 2.5 for iOS and Apple Watch

A few weeks ago, we announced a major new version of Nozbe, 2.5, featuring a brand new design and a bunch of new features for Android, iOS, and Apple Watch users. There’s only one problem: the new Nozbe still isn’t available on App Store. We think we owe you an apology and an explanation. What happened The problem began when we decided to update our Apple Watch app to watchOS 2.

November is the big month for us. We can finally show you first part of all the big things we were working on for the last couple of months. We could not be more thrilled to present you (our great community of Nozbe users) the newest Nozbe 2.5. We put enormous effort into it. Refreshed design Some of you may know about our Design Fight meetings every Wednesday. Nozbe 2.

A sneak peek into iOS 9

A few months ago, we’ve decided to double down our efforts on Apple platforms. Many of us at Nozbe are happy users of Macs and iOS devices, and so we wanted to bring more features, improvements and refinements to our apps there.

You might have noticed the results over the last few versions. We released one of the first apps for Apple Watch, then redesigned it just two months later. And in the lastest version, Mac users got a Today widget (just like the one we have on iOS).

But we’re just getting started. We have a ton of improvements in the pipeline. Here’s just a few examples of what we’re working on for the iOS 9 release in September:

Multi-tasking on iPad

If you’re on an iPad, you’ll love this one. In iOS 9, you can swipe your finger from the right edge of the screen to see your tasks in Nozbe. You don’t have to leave the app you’re using, go to home screen or double-tap the home button. Just swipe from the right and you can slide Nozbe over other apps. This is useful when you just want a quick glance at your priority tasks, or when you want to quickly add a task to your inbox.

It gets even better if you’re using iPad Air 2. After sliding Nozbe over, you can drag the separator to enable split view. This way, you can use Nozbe side-by-side with another app. For example, you can compose an email while looking at your notes in Nozbe.
