  • Unity badge support
  • sync tasks using your Dropbox / Ubuntu One account
  • customizable themes; comes with a few beautiful themes like Blue Coffee, a Linux theme, a theme that imitates Wunderlist and more

Nitro Tasks web app
The application was updated to version 1.5 yesterday, bringing a web version so you can access Nitro Tasks from any computer / device. You can access the web version here: http://app.nitrotasks.com/. The web app doesn't yet support themes and obviously, there's no Unity support, but the rest of Nitro Tasks features are there. There's also a new Mac application that's pending approval in the Mac store.

Metro theme
Nitro Tasks 1.5 also brings 2 new themes: Metro and "Right to Left", MacBook Pro Retina support as long as a tiny but cool feature: when syncing Nitro with Dropbox or Ubuntu one, a todo.txt file will be created in the Nitro app folder so you can easily view your tasks from say a mobile device, or using an application that supports todo.txt. Applications for Android, iOS and Windows Mobile are planned for Nitro Tasks 2.0.

Other minor new features include: an option to set the calendar start date and restoring the last used list.
