Less than a couple of weeks after its release on iOS, the customizable to-do app Tick has already received its first update. "If you like a more visual approach to your task lists, and want something that is fast and responsive," noted my colleague Christine in her review of the app here on AppAdvice, "then Tick is an app that you should definitely check out." But in an otherwise thoroughly positive review, Christine also noted one shortcoming of the app: its lack of a way to cancel the creation of a list. Well, thanks to its first update, Tick has gained a way to cancel creating a list, which comes by way of a slight redesign of its Customize view. If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. In addition, the update brings the following enhancements to Tick:
The new version of Tick is available now in the App Store as a free update or as a new $1.99 download. The app is optimized for iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 7.0 or later. The newly updated app also features better low-light sensitivity for its night mode. In addition, it includes several fixes, including fixes for: a bug that causes the keyboard to dismiss of its own accord, a crash that occurs when marking a to-do and going back to the lists quickly, and errors in the app's German and Russian translations. Tick is created by Taphive, the same developer behind TodoMovies, the popular to-do app for movies. Last week, Taphive released another app in the form of Blur Studio, an app designed for blurring photos to turn them into iOS 7-style wallpapers. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
