Nirvana Mobile Updates

Greetings fellow GTD’ers. Hope you’re keeping warm. We’re excited to announce a fresh batch of updates to our mobile apps, available now for Android via GooglePlay and available soon on the AppStore for iOS (waiting as usual for Apple to approve the app).

EDIT Dec 15: the update for iOS is now available

WHAT’S NEW  (3.0.25)

  • New! Recurring Tasks —  Create and Edit tasks that repeat on a regular basis, available for Nirvana Pro users
  • Fix: Sequential Projects now render correctly
  • Fix: Unified Next List displays only the first next action from Sequential Projects
  • Lots of UI improvements, adjustments, enhancements, and various bug fixes

As always, if you run into any issues, think something isn’t quite right, or just want to say hello to the team, shoot us a message via


the joys of mobile testing 🙂

Power-Tip: Multi-Select + Drag-n-Drop

Nirvana has a number of “hidden” power features that you may have discovered on your own, or maybe not. In any case, we want you to know about them! So this is the first in a series of blog posts to let you in on features that we couldn’t live without.

Ever wish you could batch-edit a bunch of to-dos? Maybe you’ve wanted to batch-assign tags or move a bunch of to-dos to another place… the short video clip below shows you how.

Hope you found this helpful!

Nirvana Updates

First week out of the gate with our new apps and we’ve been busy adjusting things here and there. Thanks to everyone who provided feedback.

  • People really missed being able to swipe-right from the left edge of their mobile devices to reveal the side bar… this has been restored and an update (3.0.24) is available for Android. The updated iOS apps have been submitted to the AppStore but are awaiting the green light from the gatekeepers at Apple — hang in there, it’ll show up as an update when they let it through.
  • The back button on Android also behaves a bit more as expected, closing dialog boxes, popup menus, and ultimately exiting the app when you back up all the way to where the app was launched.
  • There was a problem with certain Cyrillic characters intermittently appearing bolded… this has been fixed on Desktop and Android. The iOS updates are, again, pending release by the AppStore, but should be available soon.
  • There was problem with the Signup / Login pages for some users… this has been resolved (to the best of our knowledge). Please let us know if you’re still having problems here.

EDIT Nov 6: The updated iOS app is now available on the AppStore. 🙂

Other frequently raised topics via our support channels included the lack of badges and notification on mobile, no recourse for Windows Phone users (as we removed the mobile web version in lieu of the new mobile apps, but without a Windows Phone solution #NirvanaFail), and some discontent with text being harder to read compared to before.  We’re looking at ways to address all of these issues.

Oh, and Happy Halloween everybody!
