You should now be able to windows+tab around (as one often does) and still find Nirvana as you left it when you come back.

Thanks to all who reported this.

Shift+reload your browser (or logout/login) if you are still seeing this bug.


Sneaking these updates in just under the wire — Dark mode comes to iOS and Android, as does a handy new feature: Today’s Calendar Events listing at the top of your Focus list.

oh hai, that’s nifty

And our apps for Mac and Windows are now generally available for all who wish to give them a spin. ✌🏼


We hope you’re doing OK in these crazy times. It’s been a difficult few months for us all. They say to focus on what you can control—so, we’ve pushed out some new goodness to the web app.

lo, what is this? some mouse skillz in the dark?

Keyboard navigation enhancements

  • Select tasks with up / down arrow keys;
  • shift+up / shift+down to select multiple tasks;
  • option+up / option+down to move selected tasks (mac)
  • alt+up / alt+down to move selected tasks (windows)
  • With tasks selected, right arrow to show notes, left arrow to hide notes, enter to edit, then enter to save changes;

Read on to see what’s new in this update.

  • Inbox items can now be converted into projects — open the task, tap the ellipsis, and go for it.
  • New Inbox items are fresh and clean, no longer assigning the current tag or area.
  • Beautiful on the iPhone X.
  • Easier upgrading with in-app purchases. Go to your settings in the app, tap upgrade, and choose the yearly or lifetime option. If you prefer to upgrade directly through your account dashboard, you can still do that with these instructions.


Several weeks ago we unleashed a beta version for Android. Thanks to your testing, a new stable version is here for Android and it’s better than ever.

The beta version fixed a number of things and brought Android in line. The update boasts a sleek new look and feel, more info and options where you need them, and a calendar that’s a breeze to use. You can learn more about that goodness right here.

Ok, we also broke a couple of things with the beta version, but that’s what betas are for, right? They’re also for getting those kinks gone. Without your help, we wouldn’t have been able to make things right. You let us know where we had work to do. You guys. You rock! …

It’s been a busy few weeks. First we released a new android beta, then the updated web app. Apple aficionados, it’s your turn. 3.4.0 for iOS is all about a smoother experience. We’re still boasting a fresh look, 3D touch shortcuts, quick launch speed and date picking, and, thanks to your help, we identified bothersome bugs and got them gone.
