Google has finally decided that Tasks deserves a dedicated app on mobile.

Available now on iPhone and iPad, Tasks boasts a clean and simple interface with all the features you’ll need to stay productive. It also works closely alongside Google Calendar and Gmail to make managing your most important projects as easy as possible.

Tasks is the go-to productivity app for millions of G Suite users, but it has been lacking proper mobile support. On iOS, users have had to look to third-party clients instead. Now a free and official Tasks app is available from the App Store.

What’s great about the new Tasks app is its wonderfully clean design. It boasts all the feature most users will ever need in a task management app, without unnecessary clutter that makes managing your day time-consuming and difficult.

Tasks lets you create lists for your most important to-dos; view, edit, and manage all your tasks on the go from any device; break down bigger projects into sub-tasks; add notes and details, and set due dates to keep you on track.

Drag and drop makes organizing your lists easier than ever. Tasks also works closely with Gmail and Google Calendar on the web, making it easy to create new tasks from important messages or appointments.

Just like other G Suite services, Tasks is completely free to use. You can download the new app for iPhone and iPad from the App Store now.
