Simpletask

Simpletask


A simple task list manager that strives to have just enough features to do GTD, but no more. Based on the todo.txt app so a todo.txt file (http://todotxt.com) is used for syncing the task list to the cloud.

Can also be used for MYN/1MTD. See the screenshots for an example of how to use it for MYN.

Features
- True to GTD without unnecessary bells and whistles
- Todo list stored on Dropbox in the todo.txt format
- Comprehensive filtering and multi sort
- Quickly filter tasks using the left navigation drawer
- Save common filters in right navigation drawer
- Create calendar reminders for specific tasks directly from the app
- Share the complete tasklist or selected tasks using the Android share feature
- Tasks can deferred into the future. Combined with the "Show future tasks" filter it allows you to get tasks out of your face (as in 1MTD/MYN)

- Added Italian translation (thanks to Carlo D.)

- Updated Dropbox API to 3.1.1. Possible fix for Lollipop issues [#163](https://github.com/mpcjanssen/simpletask-android/issues/163).

Works beautifully I love this app. Especially for the non coders among us, this and Ben's desktop app makes implementing text based to do files possible and easy. Now if only someone would come up with a widget that could integrate my calendar with my todo.text file life would be perfect.

In my view better than remember the milk, wunderlist todoist, toodledo etc. I've tried the pro versions of all of these. The software has a sensible clean interface but is very customisable. It's ideal for implementing GTD. the only thing that stops me from using it as my daily to do system is the lack of decent web/pc app. if only all software was as good as this.

Nice app I will even make a donation, but why the missing fifth star? I don't know how the syncing is implemented, but sometimes you have to wait a lot for the changes to appear if they were made elsewhere. Even the weather forcast synchronizes well before I can finally access my up-to-date notes and edit them. There either should be some option to explicitly request immediate syncing, or it should sync every time I open my notes, like Colornote does. With Simpletask, it is just too easy to create conflicting copies of your todo.txt file if you edit it elsewhere too, eg. on your computer.

Simple, yet versatile and flexible TODO list app It adds several extensions to the todotxt format that are absolutely essential to me. It's pity that most other todotxt applications don't support them (you will still be able to interoperate, though, since it's just a txt file, which is awesome). The only missing piece for this app to be perfect is a proper notification system when the task gets closer to its due date (or reaches the threshold). This is a must for recurrent tasks that might only need to be done once per month but you might not remember to do. The current implementation has reminders using the calendar app, but these have to be created manually and don't use the due date nor the threshold as the default date (at least not in my MIUI calendar app). It's not a big deal because most calendars allow for recurrent notifications, but it's annoying that you have to set up the dates and frequency twice, one for the todo list and another for the calendar.
