iPhone app update: Now with Smart Add goodness

Tuesday, October 27, 2009 by Emily Boyd

The latest version of the Remember The Milk app is now available on the App Store — w00t! The biggest addition in version 1.2.0 is support for Smart Add with a handy new 'Add Task' bar.

Smart Add

Add tasks quickly (and with as many properties as you like!) by using Smart Add syntax, e.g., "Pick up the milk tomorrow", "Order stationery #work", "Return books in 2 weeks @Library", and more.

This feature saves time too, with support for adding by context: tasks added to your today list will be due today, while tasks added to Smart Lists inherit their criteria. So, if your Smart List shows all your high priority tasks that are due today and located at the office (due:today AND location:office), any tasks added to this Smart List will automatically inherit all these properties.

But wait, there's more! In addition to the Smart Add features in this release, we've tweaked task name editing (pressing 'return' is now the same as the 'Save' button) to help you speedily add and edit tasks. This update also fixes an issue with note editing that was introduced by iPhone OS 3.1.

We hope you like this update! Want to learn more about the app in general? Check out the Remember The Milk for iPhone & iPod touch section of the site.
