Reorder tasks on the Sooner list

I love the speed and simplicity of your app. Have you considered allowing tasks in the Sooner list (and only the Sooner list) to be reordered by drag/drop? This feature would allow me to be more adaptable and flexible throughout the day as my priorities shift or I add new Sooner tasks. Thanks for consideration and I look forward to the next version with some of these promised new features.

    Hi! Yes, I have done many experiments with priorities, categories, etc., which you can read about on the blog at hotchaipro.com if you’re interested. The spoiler is that my conclusion is that the Focus button (the button with the star icon) is the optimal solution, and that any more granularity of prioritization is a waste of your time. There are lots of other to-do apps that offer you complex options for organizing and prioritizing your tasks down to the most minute details, but my bet is that if you try them, you’ll find that you’re wasting a lot of time fiddling with your to-do items instead of getting them done, and you’ll soon be back to the simple, efficient, and highly effective Focus button in Sooner Or Later! :) -David

        Its very frustrating to read the dev's response. We need a simple and intuitive app like this. And I save a lot of time simply by drag and reorder my task. I paid this app to support the devs. I hope they know what are their priorities though.

        If drag and reorder is considered as complex option, I had nothing but to disagree for that.

        At least you can give it a try. Those who do not need the feature simply don't drag and reorder. It would not even distrupt the overly simplistic and ultra efficient Focus Button at all.

        I disagree. I use the focus button very often, yet I would find the ability to reorder my tasks in the soon list very useful. Bare with me: The focus button will highlight and move the item to the top of the list. Yes, I can use it to order my tasks in the correct sequence I want. However, using this technique will highlight many tasks and leave other dimmed. This defeats the purpose of the focus button which is to call your attention to items currently being taken care of. I wish I could also rearrange my tasks within the list so I can visualize the correct sequence of events and still be able to use the focus button as a way to highlight what I must pay attention to at a given moment (and only for that). Understand? Great app btw. I just purchased the ad free version to help you keep up the good work. Thanks
