Microsoft To-Do UWP gets UI overhaul, but still bugs to fix

Published by at

Covered at its launch here in detail (in April) and also mentioned in the context of a new shortcut from Outlook Calendar (August), Microsoft's cross-platform To-Do application (a Windows 10 UWP here) has picked up new features and enhancements in the last month, with even a handy changelog (reproduced below) and a latest bug-fix update overnight last night.

Highly recommended if you want an official Microsoft way to manage all your tasks and reminders, and especially if you want all this to be cross platform across the web, all Windows 10 form factors, iOS and Android.

The official changelog for the current To-Do major version is listed as:

  • Improved: We've improved our Suggestions experience. It loads faster and now it wishes you a good morning or a good evening... it's the little things.  
  • Improved: We've simplified the Suggestions view to make it easier for you to add to-dos to My Day without accidentally ticking them off. 
  • Improved: We've given our icons a little bit of an overhaul and made them a little bolder.  
  • Improved: We've improved our error messages so that you have a few more details about what exactly went wrong. 
  • Fixed: If you changed a due date on a recurring to-do we had a pesky little bug that meant the to-do stopped recurring. We put a stop to that.

Welcome to my day - riveting, isn't it?!! (right) Er.... Microsoft, it's FRIDAY today. See your own 'My Day' view - so why does 'Suggestions' think it's THURSDAY? Clearly bugs still to fix!
