Tell us what the big updates are here since the post 10 months ago? The long-awaited iOS app is now out I see 😊 - what were the struggles in fitting such a sophisticated web-app into an app?
@bentossell @chadbyers Thanks Ben & Chad! Since getting feedback here in May, we went heads down and started making sure you could rely on Plan entirely for everything you'd need to manage your day. That meant fleshing out both the tasks and meetings side of things, in addition to creating a mobile experience that rivals the desktop. Some of the features we've added in: support for multiple Google accounts, meeting invites, and a smart input that does a pretty good job of figuring out what you're trying to say. One of the biggest challenges for mobile was figuring out how to keep the connection between the two most integral parts of the app -- the tasks list and calendar, so that you can effortlessly organize your work for the day. Long pressing on your agenda view in Plan slides in a calendar view that lets you easily drop-to-create and rearrange time to work on tasks and meetings. Around all day to answer questions + feature reqs! πŸ˜„ 😁
@darshan1394 What are your plans in terms of integrations with other apps (Trello, Wunderlist, etc)?

Without sharing -- task assignment, @mentions, and so on -- this can't really displace other tools except for soloists living in an ice cave in Antarctica. Nice UI, though. @darshan1394 @bentossell @chadbyers Likewise, integrations: doesn't even post dated tasks on Google calendar.
@darshan1394 Really like the interface. How long until tasks sync with Google Calendar? I need coworkers to be able to see that I'm not available because I'm on something else. Also, I realize there's no Android app yet, but without the task sync to Google Calendar it's really tough to go mobile if you're on Android.
@daveguilford Tasks you create after toggling the sync should show up instantaneously on GCal -- let us know if you're having trouble still!
I've tried out more than 10 task manager, to-do and scheduling apps and this one just... blows it out of the water. I've been on the beta, so I admit it might take a few tries to figure it out but this app is the closest I've found to a "lifechanger".
@mcsalama would love a bit more... WHY? what makes it so good?
Could you increase the contrast on the text etc. Its very light hard to see and sometimes irritating
@prabhu1101 we've been focusing only a few devices so far, but we are definitely going to test more devices and improve the color contrast on PCs and Mobile Web.
@prabhu1101 I agree I think the whitewash is too much.
I've been using this since the beta came out. It's deceptively powerful. It forces you to address the fact that you are constrained by how many hours there are in the day, and you need to decide what will make a difference. Which means you need to admit what you won't get done.
This is great and I'm a fan but is there a way to sync tasks to and from another platform (trello, wunderlist, etc.)?
@marielchandra Definitely on our list! We're starting with ones that add more functionality than just task management (ones geared towards collaboration, etc., like Trello) soon, and then at the very least offering one-way sync with other services.
