After downloading @ichthyosaurus To Do List app a few months ago this has become my indispensable ‘go to’ app for managing my tasks. It is simple, has a very uncluttered clear interface and is dead easy to use.
I really like the way of categorizing tasks in different projects and especially how you can bump undone tasks to the next day, the next week, or just simply to some undefined time in the future. For lazy people like me who always never seem to get done today everything I want to get done today this is a god send of a feature.
I don’t know whether this app is still in active development, but I have a few suggestions or enhancement requests that, in my view would make it even better:
It would be really useful if you could have a separate view which displayed all the tasks due today, tomorrow, this week, some day in all of the projects. This way you could, for example, immediately see everything you had to do today regardless of which project it was in without having to keep swiping to select each category. If you have a lot of projects then this results in a lot of backwards and forwards swiping to see what you have to do today. Kind of like a merged inbox in email applications where you can see all emails in the inboxes of all your accounts at once.
On the events screen (i.e. the one where the weather, all the notifications, twitter feed and calendar feed are displayed) it would be great for all your ‘today’ tasks to be displayed just like your calendar events are displayed. This would act as a great reminder of what you had to do without perhaps needing to open the app
It would be useful to add another ‘due’ category (i.e. like today, tomorrow, this week, someday) for tasks to come due on a specific date. A lot of tasks aren’t really that time constrained - they just have to be done this week or at some point in the future - and this is where this app excels, but some tasks do have to be done by a specific date.
The app keeps tasks locally on the phone, they are not synchronised with any cloud service - and this is fine. But I have so many tasks on this app now that I do get nervous about the task database being lost or corrupted, losing my phone and so on. A method of therefore backing up/restoring the task database would therefore be welcomed. I don’t know where it is stored on the phone and whether or not it is, or can be, included in the standard Sailfish backup profile (i.e. Settings/Backup)? Alternatively a separate backup setting to backup the database to a single file that could then be manually uploaded to dropbox or whatever would be equally as good.
Anyway, just a few suggestions for a brilliant little app
