written by Yana Vlatchkova
We are happy to announce the major new release of Swipes app which gives you a whole new workflow between tasks and notes from Evernote. In the new update of Swipes, we've made tons of improvements that allow you to collect tasks from any personal, shared or business notes into a timeline where you can manage them all at once. With Swipes you can complete, schedule and prioritise your to-dos without ever worrying that you'll forget them in a monstrous pile of notes.
Swipes on a mission to de-clutter your workflow
We founded Swipes back in 2013 with the idea to deliver a productivity tool that is both functional, slick in its design and most importantly – clutter free! Based on gestures and smart integrations, our app let’s you plan your day, schedule things ahead and work on the priorities. At Swipes, we work on translating proven productivity concepts ( GTD , Inbox Zero) into intuitive design thus you will easily learn how to organise your time more efficiently without even consciously thinking about it.

Evernote, by its nature, is a workspace for the way we work today, collecting information across multiple devices and from just about anywhere in the world. Swipes, on the other hand, is the task management app that not only stores your tasks, but helps you prioritise them and break-down the important things into actionable steps. The blend of Swipes with Evernote gives you the possibility to not only collect the things that matter to you, but act on them.
Who’s the integration for?
There are virtually no limitations to how and why you can use this integration. From personal errands and shopping lists, to group tasks and business notes, the Evernote integration is here to increase your productivity flow so that you’d never have to drown in tasks again! But just to help you really dig into the advantages of using Swipes with Evernote, meet some of our current users:

Integrate Swipes with Evernote Guide Image2. Transferring notes & tasks from Evernote to Swipes – When you create a new note in Evernote, the title of the note will become the task in Swipes. All checkmarks you add to that note will then automatically be synced as sub-tasks/ action steps into your Swipes task. To automatically transfer your note into Swipes, simply tag the note with “swipes” and viola!
And don’t worry, once you’ve swiped the task/ sub-tasks as completed, they won’t disappear from your Evernote, but they will simply get ticked as done in your checkboxes. Easy, right? Here's the step-by-step guide we put together for you on the 3 different ways you can sync task and notes from Evernote into Swipes.
At Swipes, we will continue to build upon our vision for an integrated workflow between notes, tasks, emails and projects. In October, Evernote awarded us "Best New Startup of 2014". This year we'll be launching the next big tool in productivity - turning emails into tasks with a simple swipe.
