Vitalist Update Release Notes
July 21st, 2009 / 10 Comments

Hopefully everyone is enjoying the latest updates we have made to Vitalist. Here are the latest features now available:

  • Speed – We have worked very hard to improve speed all throughout the application
  • Improved note handling – This is where you will notice quite a bit of change. We are using a new note input method, known as Markdown. More information will be released about this soon in our support. Also included is a pop-out window for better managing actions with longer notes.
  • Icon shortcuts – All of the mini icons next to actions/projects now jump you directly to that tab when editing. For example, clicking the note icon will take you to the notes tab.
  • Additional search options – Next actions only and a new sort are now available in the Smart Searches
  • Group by Projects – When grouping actions by project, the project header will now display the project’s due date along with the related actions’ due dates.
  • Offline support – We are releasing the beta for offline support using Google Gears. If you are interested in testing this out please email us at
  • iPhone App beta – We are releasing the beta for the iPhone app. If you are interested in testing this out please email us at
