• Finalist 1.2 + iOS 17

    Finalist 1.2 is here to make your iOS 17 update (also out today) way more interesting. The new Interactive Widgets will let you complete your tasks without opening the app. This works very nicely in the new StandBy mode. Finalist also got more widget support across the board: several lock screen variants for iPhone and new-to-iPad larger lock screen widgets.

    You’ll also see hourly weather forecast inline on your Calendar Peek, very helpful when planning and reviewing your tasks. I’ve added more clipboard task import and export options (see … menu), new haptics when using the app, some more calendar display options and lots of tweaks and bug fixes you’ve reported over the last month - thank you! πŸ™

  • Finalist 1.1

    Finalist 1.1 is now out, and 1.2 Beta is already underway. This time I’ll be focusing on iOS 17 features for Apple’s September release, with a few general improvements for everyone πŸ˜€

    Saturday August 26, 2023
  • Lots of improvements in 1.1 beta 54: 24-hour clock, non all-day event can now be shown on Monthly tab, more start and end day options for Daily tab and lots of small fixes. This build is also not going to be free anymore for new installs.

  • Finalist review from MacStories:

    Finalist is a new iPhone and iPad task manager that combines elements of note-taking apps, Kanban boards, and calendar apps in a unique and interesting way. The result is a lightweight app that’s simple and quick to use but unlikely to replace a fully-featured task manager for most users.

    Spot on!
