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)

Recent changes:
5.2.15
------

- Only update menu if it is actually initialized. Should fix crash on 5.1.

Works as advertised Very simple, with a few enhancements over the original todo.txt app. Love it.

Getting better and better I have been using all sorts of productivity apps. It is always a painful memory that my beloved Astrid got knocked out by Yahoo! simply because they hate it. I used wunderlist to replace Astrid but the fear of sudden shutdown of my task memories keeping me away from it. Then I devoted most of my life into evernote and google keep. I discovered todo.txt and immersed into the plaintext productivity world. Simpletask is a great app that keeps all my task into a trusted place with ease of manipulation.

Very close to perfect for a basic task list app that can be tailored for GTD.

Great 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. Correction added later: the delayed syncing turns out to be an issue with the Dropbox library, it is not caused by SimpleTask. I have to give 5 stars to this app. Also because Mark, the developer was absolutely willing to help and solve to problem. Besides, for whatever reason, this problem with the delayed synchronization became less frequent recently. Maybe Dropbox got improved in the meantime?..

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. I just wish there was an app for the pc/Web that support todo.txt
