The new update is important in that it's released in anticipation of the imminent launch of the app's sequel, TodoMovies 3. That's right: TodoMovies is getting a blockbuster sequel soon.
Now, it's set to go 3.0 with even more enhancements. Apparently, though, TodoMovies 3 is going to be available as a brand new app, rather than just an update to the existing TodoMovies, aka TodoMovies 2.
It's with this consideration that the latest update to TodoMovies 2 has been issued. Essentially, the update allows you to move your movies from TodoMovies 2 into TodoMovies 3 once it's released and installed on your iOS device. As outlined by TodoMovies developer Taphive, here's what you need to do:
- First install TodoMovies 3 (when it is released).
- Open TodoMovies 2 -> Settings->Backup->Export Library TodoMovies 3->Open in TodoMovies
- That's it. TodoMovies 3 will open with all your movies migrated.
- You can safely delete TodoMovies 2.
Make sure not to add movies to TodoMovies 3 before importing movies from TodoMovies 2 since they will just be overwritten.
Note also that TodoMovies initially doesn't support iCloud syncing. So, if you need iCloud syncing in managing your movie-focused to-dos, stick with TodoMovies 2 for the time being.
TodoMovies 3 is scheduled to be released in the App Store on Thursday, March 27. Presumably, the new app features a new design for iOS 7 and some notable enhancements over its predecessor. In any case, stay tuned to AppAdvice for our full review of TodoMovies 3 to be posted shortly after its launch.
