      The good news is that the focus feature is still there!

      Just tap the round bullet in the left margin of your to-do item to focus or unfocus it.

      My apologies that it’s more difficult to discover, but I wanted you to be able to focus on an item with just one tap, rather than the two it took to first open the menu and then tap the focus button in older versions.

    • days moving

      After the last update, reminders, moving every night of one day less. Eg. I have a car service on Thursday, 10 October. After the night, the service has changed from 9 October. Bug?

      • Thumb friendly navigation

        One thing that really makes the Windows phone better than the others is the fact that most of the navigation can be done from the bottom.

        So.., after opening S|L the plus sign is at the bottom - great!
        However the icons to see different lists are at the top.

        That means I have to cramp my thumb all the way up to the top of the screen with the chance of dropping my phone. Or use my other hand (and arm for that matter) just to click an icon. I'm forced to use two hands to control an app!

        • soon list not on live tile anymore

          I really liked the 'soon' list on my live tile. Is there a setting for that?

            Hi!

            There is still a Live Tile for your soon list, but some people seem to be having an issue with it after upgrading to version 3.

            Please try restarting your phone, and if that doesn’t work, user Sooner Or Later to backup your tasks to OneDrive, uninstall Sooner Or Later, re-install Sooner Or Later, and restore your tasks from OneDrive.

            Sorry for the hassle!

            -David

          • Today tab

            I'd love to see a Today tab. I could start my day by moving items from other tabs. I could then move them to complete as I go. Keep the tomorrow tab.

              Hi Barry, and thanks for the suggestion!

              Try using the Soon list as if it is your Today tab. That’s how i use it myself, but the label “Soon” rather than “Today” makes it more flexible for other use cases.

              Thanks!
              -David

            • add a title bar to live tile, please

              I use multiple to do lists. Eg: "Get this stuff", "Do this Stuff", "Research this Stuff", "Call these people", etc....

                Thanks for the feedback!

                I was trying to maximize the use of space to fit as many to-do items as reasonably possible on the Live Tile, which is why there’s no title.

                But, I’m adding a new feature to support Projects in an upcoming update, and I am considering the option for allowing a Live Tile per project, which would include the name of the project at the top of the tile.

              • output list of all groups

                Can you output the list of all groups, when user click on active group name? Currently you have too many groups for carousel.

                  Thanks for the feedback! In the iOS and Android versions, I reduce the number of groups by eliminating Favorites and combining Scheduled and Later. I’ve also implemented a tabbed user interface, rather than the now obsolete carousel user interface. I’ve just started rewriting the Windows 10 version to match, so I hope that addresses the issue for you! -David

                • small dot before each task in the list

                  UI and UX can be better, if before each item of the list add small dot, like •
                  (in the tile and the program)

                    Thanks for the suggestion! The dot actually exists in the iOS and Android versions (“Sooner Or Later ToDo” in those app stores), and I’m in the process of rewriting the user interface for Windows 10 to look the same. The nice part is that the dot is actually functional—tap it to move the item into focus at the top of your Soon list! -David

                            • Transparent live tile and remove smiley.

                              First a transparent live tile would be welcome, but I see you have already marked that as planned. However, it would be nice to be able to turn off the smiley that appears on the live tile if the lists are empty. Id rather just have an almost empty tile instead of that random smiley which doesnt look particulary nice or neutral.

                                Will do! The smiley used to be more plain, but Windows Phone 8 changed it to that ugly yellow thing, sorry! I’ll make my own smiley for the next update so it won’t be subject to changes in the emoji font. Thanks for the feedback! -David

                                      Hi! I assume by “badge”, you mean the same count of Soon tasks that’s on the wide tile. This may obscure some of your tasks, but I think it’s a great idea, and I’ll put it in a future update. Thanks! -David

                                      NOTE: It’s available in version 2.1, which requires Windows Phone 8.1, and it only appears if there are more items than will fit on the tile (in order to avoid obscuring your item list if possible).

                                    • add timer to later tasks

                                      There should be an option to set timer for '
                                      later' tasks, after which tasks will be moved to 'soon' section

                                        If I understand this correctly, that’s exactly what happens with “Scheduled” tasks. Try selecting a Later item and tapping “edit” and changing “When” from Later to Scheduled. Or, if you just want to schedule the item for tomorrow, just tap the “tomorrow” button. Thanks for the feedback! I’ll blog more details on how some of this works. -David

                                          When set to Schedule, at what time does the schedule time come on ?
