This post is part of a series about 2Day for Windows 10:
Early next week you will be able to grab 2Day for Windows 10. This new update will bring many new features and improvements.
This post is the first of a series to highlight the most important changes in 2Day.
The header was updated. Here is the old one:
And here is the new one:
The goal was to increase vertical space to show your content. I also decided to move the 4 commands in the right part of the header right in the left navigation menu. Search is now also directly integrated in the left navigation area. The logo of 2Day is gone in this process but it might come back in a future release. I also reviewed the design of group headers.
As mentioned earlier, with the new header we now have more space to display your content in the navigation menu. You will also notice that commands that were previously in the bottom application bar (like settings) now are at the bottom of the navigation menu like in other Windows 10 apps:

Quick add & calendar
Quick add had a minor redesign – I updated the calendar control to be able to have quick shortcuts (in 1 week, in 2 weeks, etc.)
This new calendar control is also used in the task page so that you can very easily adjust the date of an existing task.
As you can see, speech recognition is now directly available from the quick add pane.
Improved color picker
When you create a new folder, you now have an indicator that shows how many times each color is currently being used:
This post highlights some of the most important changes, as you start using 2Day for Windows 10 you will probably notice other subtle changes
