+Bitspin, what happened? You guys started out strong, regularly posting to G+ & adding features, then kinda trailed off. If you want to truly be about users, individuality & customization, you need to add the ability to import, record or add new alarm sounds & new categories. The Google Now integration is great, but what would really be AWESOME? Being the first alarm clock to integrate Google Play Music! Even if I have to pin a song to add it as an alarm, well, that would be a start, especially if you could then modify it by shortening the clip. I really like the nature sounds, but there are too few. Again, being able to add my own into specific custom categories would enhance this two fold.

We were pretty busy last week to make Timely accessible to as many people as possible. Timely is now localized into 21 languages, including: English, Spanish, Portuguese, Brazilian Portuguese, Italian, French, Danish, German, Polish, Hungarian, Korean, Japanese, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), Bulgarian, Czech, Slovak, Russian, Swedish, Finnish and Dutch. A big thanks goes to all our translators who made this possible!

Announcing Timely Alarm Clock

Team Tasks is now Bitspin! Download Timely, our new app, on Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ch.bitspin.timely

Timely is the beautiful Alarm Clock for Android, featuring a stunning user experience and revolutionary cloud integration to backup and synchronize your alarms with multiple devices.

Setting an alarm has never been easier: Just swipe from the edge of the screen and set the desired time by dragging a bar. Tap to make adjustments of 5 minutes.

Beautiful wake-up experience: Hand-crafted, high quality sounds and our innovative Smart Rise feature transform waking up in the morning into pure delight.

Your taste, your style: Choose from our gorgeous color themes to match your very own style. Or use our design-tool to create an all-new look. Select one of our hand-crafted designer clocks to fit your taste.

Never get up late again: Use challenges with your alarms to make sure you are really awake when dismissing an alarm. Think pressing buttons is not fancy enough? Turn your phone to snooze it. Additionally, Timely recognizes when you lift your phone and reduces the alarm intensity by lowering the volume.

Connecting your devices: Manage, dismiss and snooze alarms on all your devices at once. Cloud synchronization enables a seamless experience across phones and tablets. As a plus, everything gets backed up.

Ready, Set, Go: Use our stopwatch to measure time with style. And setting a countdown is as easy as winding up a kitchen timer.

Designed for tablets: No matter what kind of device you own, Timely just looks perfect.

More: Widget, Google Now integration, recurring alarms, awesome animations, adaptive snoozing, fade-in, DashClock extension, volume buttons to snooze.

Epic Ice Cubes

We’ve just updated Tasks with some awesome iciness!
One of the core ideas of this update is to have greater integration with the Android Ecosystem. We now support third-party widgets both on your home screen (Android Agenda Widget, Pure Calendar Widget, etc...) and on your lock screen (Dash Clock). And creating a task from Google Now turns out to be as simple as starting a sentence with the words Note to self.

We take the integration further by supporting related emails for tasks added by Gmail and the ability to snooze reminders.

Another aspect of improvements was general usability, where we introduce alphabetical sort mode, an indicator for overdue tasks, an improved calendar picker and more.

For a list of new features and improvements, check out the complete change list below.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ch.teamtasks.tasks.paid

Task 1.5 Ice Cubes

• In-app donations (reason for permission change)
• Google Now integration (speak “note to self: …” in Google Now)
• Support for related emails for tasks added by Gmail
• Ability to snooze reminders
• Alphabetical sort mode
• Implemented support for 3rd party widgets like Pure Calendar Widget, Agenda Widget, DashClock and others
• Improved Calendar Picker: Added shortcuts for today, tomorrow, next week and current day is highlighted
• Indicator for overdue tasks
• Option to specify the first day of week
• Ability to move multiple tasks at once and subtasks are moved with its parents
• Tasks can now individually be shared by email
• Due date in list shows weekday and reminder time
• Sorting by due date now also considers reminder times
• Performance optimizations
• Minor improvements

Thanks to our translators for the great effort!

I really wish you'd add an option to use all the themes as a live wallpaper. It'd be nice to have the animations and the seconds that the app uses in the widget too. Unbelievably nice app you have here.

Creating magical experiences
Introduction
We are a small team of developers who previously studied computer science at ETH Zurich. While studying we have gained experience in entrepreneurship and product design by releasing several products and consulting for large Swiss companies. After University we formed the decision to become an independent developer studio and do what we love; creating great apps and products.

Based in Zurich, the center of technology in Switzerland, we founded Bitspin. The mission of our company is to create new apps and services with a focus on user experience and design. Our extensive knowledge of the web and mobile platforms allows us to combine simplicity with design, creating experiences so delightful they seem like magic.
