iOS 8 introduced sharing as one way for users to share the data they look at in one app with another app. You can, for example, add the article you found in a Flipboard magazine to your Krumplr reading list without leaving Flipboard. You also can turn a tweet into a Krumplr to-do right in Tweetbot. Sharing works in Flipboard and Tweetbot and Thousands of other apps. It is a great and simple way to feed your favorite apps information you have in other places.
If you’ve been following along on our journey, you know that we’ve been pouring all our energy into making a great to-do manager. One that understands that you are using many applications that contain to-dos in one form or another and shows you all of them. So we’ve not only been continuously adding function and polish to our iOS and web apps but we’ve also been adding support for more sources of to-dos.
As we’ve moved forward with enhancing Krumplr, we’re also aware of a couple realities:
- Our iOS app didn’t make any effort to convince people to create an account once they had downloaded the app from the app store.
- Ours users had to figure out how to connect other sources of to-dos on their own. We didn’t really help them, even when they were new.
We made a conscious decision to focus on building function before tackling these problems. But with the features we’ve added recently – dynamic lists connected to Gmail, Evernote, Asana, and Quip and the ability to forward emails into Krumplr – we hit a tipping point where our capabilities really called for a better getting started experience.
