  1. Early Alerts

    I prefer to enter the actual due date of a to-do, eg the payment due date of an utility bill. But I also want early alerts, a number of days in advance - preferably upto 2 alerts (for really important stuff). This feature is available in another app (To-Do with Alerts Free) but I prefer your app because of the"sooner" tag in addition to scheduled date.

      • Backup for iPhone

        It would be good to have backup and restore for iPhone (eg with one drive)

        • On Windows 10 mobile, the UI is broken since the last update.

          When you open the app with the windows-controls showing, there's a black bar on the top and the lower part of the app is cut off. When hiding the controls by swiping from the bottom of the screen, the app looks just as usual and everything is fine. Please fix, otherwise great app!

                • change the way the prioritize-button works

                  Almost always when I swipe right on an item, I start my swipe on the button on the left which causes my swipe to go unrecognized and just presses the button. Maybe trigger this button on release of the touch instead of initial click?

                  • Bring back unscheduled later items

                    Taking these away with the new update drastically changed the function of the program. Now management is forced and clunkier. I don't have time to select a date for every single item on my Later list. Because the system was so ambiguous it worked better than any other program out there, but now that I have to set a time for everything the program is so frustrating it's more efficient to go back to paper.

                      Hi Paige,

                      Have you tried using Never and Tomorrow?

                      Tomorrow is a quick way to empty your Soon list (just swipe items to the left) if you want them to come to your attention again, and Never is a good place for items that you don’t want to see again unless you go looking for them.

                      I have personally found that given these two options, the unscheduled later option wasn’t useful.

                      In fact, I found that it was actually detrimental because I was either wasting time scanning my Later list, or missing unscheduled items because I wasn’t regularly scanning my Later list.

                      I’m constantly refining and improving the Context-Focus system as implemented by the Sooner Or Later app, and it’s currently my opinion that it’s best to ensure that everything is scheduled so that it will eventually come back to your Soon list for review.

                      This way, you can simply…

                      I used the apps with Windows10 and the back-up function was briliant. Could you please implement it for iOS?

                        • Make deleting reminders easier

                          After I completed the "Swipe right to complete" example item the only way I could find to delete it was: 1) swipe it left back to "soon", 2) switch to the "Soon" list, 3) long press on the item to open its menu, 4) select edit, 5) press delete. Too many steps! Please consider giving items in the "Completed" list an "Edit" menu item. That would simplify deleting completed items and still guard aganst accidental deletions.

                          Also, without an "Edit" menu item for "Completed" items it is necessary to move them to another list before editing them for reuse. I…

                            Simply swipe left or right on the FAB, but the page shouldn't stop you there. It should keep navigating infinitely, like the Phone app or the Alarms & Clock :)

                                  The Projects feature is planned for a future update.

                                  However, the plan is to make this work well for very specific projects, like remodeling the kitchen, not for categories of tasks like personal and work

                                        I love this app but my Later section has grown alot. I would like some way to sort it by maybe using priorities. Another idea would be to have a Focus button in the Later section to bring important items to the top. Thank you

                                          Interesting idea!

                                          In the iOS and Android versions, I’ve merged the Later and Scheduled lists, so that “Later” is always scheduled. So there are no more unscheduled Later items. They are always scheduled to come back to your Soon list to be prioritized with the Focus button at some point.

                                          If you really want to have an item that is unscheduled, then you can use the “Never” list.

                                          So, you kind of get priorities in your “Later” list because they’re sorted by date. Items that are scheduled to move to your Soon list sooner are at the top. :)

                                          I am rewriting the Windows 10 user interface to be like the iOS and Android versions now, so I wonder if this will address your feedback?

                                            Hm… let me think about that one. I’m trying to keep the system as simple and approachable as possible so that it doesn’t become overwhelming after extended use. But I will take this into consideration for the next major update. Thanks for the feedback! -David
