A couple of days ago, Lin Junjie released the new version of Due. I’d recommend you to read Federico Viticci’s review at MacStories and Sean Korzdorfer’s tips on how he use Due, if you haven’t already.
Compared to other apps on my home screen, I open Due more frequently on a daily basis. Other than the obvious visual changes, these are a few things I love about the new version.
1. More Quick-Access Timings
One of the great features in Due 1.x is its excellent natural language parser. Combined with four quick-access timings, it allows me to quickly (and often times, programmatically) create a new reminder.
The new 2.0 version keeps the natural language parser and adds a set of eight quick-access timings. You can configure these timings to fit your needs. The new timings allow you to create a relative timing (such as +1 hour and -1 day) in addition to the fixed timings (such as 6 AM and 7 PM). For example, I created six fixed timings based on my daily milestones and another six relative timings to easily move a reminder to a different date/time.
