  1. 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…

    • Greatest app for to fo lists!

      Greatest app for to do lists! I'd love to assign the items to projects, e.g. private, personal,...

        Hi Tobias,

        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

      • fonts

        More settings font sizes, i have big screen, so i need smaller fonts and more text. Tiny would be nice.

              Great idea! I can’t wait to have this feature myself. I’ve got some work to do to get the Windows 10 version up to date with the iOS and Android versions, and then I’ll be adding projects and cloud-sync and collaboration! -David

            • Widget-Android

              I'd like transparent sizeable widget, preferably with "focus" button known from wp:) thanks.

                • larger font for live tile to accommodate 3 column view in sub-5 inch devices

                  For smaller devices with 3 columns enabled the list on the live tile is not readily readable, would help if the font size could be adjusted.

                  • Cortana support

                    Have you thought about implementing Cortana support. Like adding tasks, checking them off, etc. with Cortana? Basically, new task would be a long button press away, instead of open app, add task click, microphone click, save.

                    • Extended name text

                      I love how clean and simple this app is. I mainly use it without adding descriptions, however that means the name ends up getting abbreviated and sometimes it's hard to tell tasks apart even when using small font. Rather than having to edit a task to see full text can you change the display when you select a task to wrap the text underneath?

                        I tried this back in the Windows Phone 7 days and failed due to some bugs on the phone. I’ll give it another try and see if it’s fixed in Windows Phone 8.1 for the next release. Thanks for your feedback!

                      • Allow custom background image

                        Detail font size is too small. And it would be nice if we can a set a background image. Apart from these I love the app. Simple and clean design. Great work.

                          • Implement projects page

                            In "getting things done" you should have projects page, which is essentially a task with some some subtasks.

                            It would be great if you could add projects somewhere which can also be marked as completed - then when adding a basic task you can select a project to which an item belongs.

                            Few more ideas if you want:
                            - on project page show how many of child tasks are completed.
                            - in basic task list view display to which project it belongs to, either by displaying first letter of project name or by miniature text below task.
                            - in projects…

                                    Hi Brad! Thanks for the great suggestion! I’d really like to implement this feature, but I’m not sure if I have the resources (mainly time) to do it yet. I have another project to finish up and I’ll get back to making a call on this one. Thanks again! -David

                                  • Attach a picture to a task

                                    I would like to be able to add a picture to a task. Sometimes I need a replacement part of some kind and having a picture as a reference would be helpful. I was in Home Depot completing something from my Soon list and a picture attached to the task would have been great!

                                    • group completed tasks

                                      It would be great to be able to group together completed repeating scheduled tasks and show a cumulative score for them to show progress and devotion. Instead of just having the word "exercise" repeated 20 times it would be better to have "exercise-20". Also, it would be great to show statistics for timely completion and missed tasks.

                                        Hi!

                                        This is a fantastic idea, and I know it’s something missing in Sooner Or Later.

                                        It would be also great to be able to set goals, like “exercise 3x per week”, and see how you’re doing against your goals.

                                        However, there is the practical problem that I need to evaluate whether or not the resources are available to add this feature.

                                        Stay tuned!

                                        -David
