Sooner Or Later

Thank you for your interest in Sooner Or Later!

  1. Delete icon on the blue list submenu

    When I click on an item in a list a submenu appears with
    never
    later
    tomorrow
    complete
    ...(space)
    ...(space)
    edit

    Wouldn't it be nice if there was a delete icon there?

    There a quite a few times that I just want a reminder that will exist for no more than 5 minutes. Its not really a todo and can be mostly deleted right away.

    Of course there is the risk you might accidently delete something important. But that could be solved with a little undo icon. SImilar to the left swipe on a mial message in the Microsoft mail app.

    Hi Dick,

    I’m limiting the buttons on the command bar as much as possible in order to make sure they fit on smaller screens, and just as importantly, to keep the app simple and friendly.

    I suggest completing the item rather than deleting it. That’s just a swipe away. And there’s an undo action for it as well. :)

    Hi,

    There are currently no plans to allow items to be rearranged in all of the lists.

    However, you can use the “focus” button to move an item to the top of your Soon list. Just tap the round bullet icon to the left of the task name in the list. (Or on older versions, tap the item to open the command bar and then tap the “focus” button.)

    Thanks!
    -David

  3. Eliminating the splash screen

    Please eliminate the "Hot Chai Productions" splash screen (and delay) when entering the app. Love the app overall!

    Hi!

    Thanks for your feedback!

    I do not plan to add a back tile because there is no way to control whether the front or back of the tile is displayed, and there should never be a situation where you are wasting time waiting for the tile to flip to the front view so you can see the items that you need to focus on now.

    Hope that makes sense!

  10. live tile checklist icon

    It would be nice if in the live tile an icon like a check appears in the beginning of each item to make it more visual friendly. It looks very clumped together in the live tile.

    Hi!

    Thank you for your feedback!

    In this case, though, I plan to stick with the Windows “Metro” design guidelines and use only text, with the idea that the content gets the focus of your eye rather than the artwork around it.

    It may not be for everyone, but I feel like it is aligned with the design goals for the look of Windows Phone.

  11. Just Let me use the flip side live Tile!

    I just want the "option" to use the flipside of the live tile to show whatever section(s) I want. The reason is because this is what the customer wants. The customer doesn't need your smoke blown up his smartphone hole, about how to run their life with your smartphone app or how to evaluate their priorities. Your "Goals of the organization" won't matter that much if they can't get what they want. Let them decided to clutter their minds or not.

    Thanks for re-considering the "Option"

    Thanks for your feedback! However, creating a new option that requires people to waste time staring at their Start screen waiting for a tile to flip at some random interval conflicts with the goal of making Sooner Or Later the most efficient way to manage your life. Fortunately, there are lots of other to-do apps in the store that may fit your desire for customization options and some of them even include flipping tiles, so you might enjoy one of those more. -David

    Hi, and thanks for the feedback! I do understand the need for creating projects, but this particular implementation would tend to hide items that you have to do. Don’t despair, though! I’ve been designing a solution for managing small projects that I think you’re going to love! -David

  14. Set the SkyDrive backup location

    I would like being able to specify the SkyDrive folder where the backup is located. It's irritating having a top-level "HotChaiPro.com" folder in an otherwise organized folder structure.

    Thanks for the feedback! This one is hard to update since you asked for two things that will have difference statuses. The Context-Focus system is specifically designed not to interrupt your focus with task reminders. If you have an appointment that needs a reminder, it should probably go into your calendar. However, putting the Soon list on the lock screen is a great suggestion (if that’s what you’re asking), and I’ve been wanting that one myself. If you’d like to track the status of that item, please create a new idea here with just the lock screen request. Great idea, and thanks again for sharing it! -David

  17. some sort of infrequent reminder to scan later tasks

    I know (and love) the goal of this app to offload later tasks and to focus on sooner tasks! I would like some sort of simple reminder to check those later tasks and move to sooner as necessary. Perhaps something as simple as every 10 times the app is opened, it opens up in the later task screen. Just so those tasks aren't completely forgotten!

    Hi Michael!

    Thanks for the suggestion!

    However, for better or worse, one of the express goals of Sooner Or Later is that it always puts you in control.

    That’s why it will never have reminders or pop-ups that try to take control and tell you when to do something.

    However, you might like to try the new “tomorrow” button. It’s a quick way to schedule something for tomorrow.

    The neat thing about scheduling something for tomorrow is that it will automatically move back to your soon list the next day (after 3am).

    This way you won’t have to remember to check your Later list.

    -David

  18. 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

    Hi Ondrej! Thanks for the feedback! You’re right, though, that there are no plans to make Sooner Or Later compete with the built-in calendar app, which is already very good for managing appointments like lectures. Sooner Or Later is intended as a complement to a calendar, for to-do items which the calendar is terrible at handling. Sorry to disappoint! -David

  20. customizable font size on medium tile

    Too big (and ugly) on WinPho8. Also big tile (but no numbers, that's what's awesome about this app)

    Thanks for the feedback, Michal!

    We are planning to implement the big tile that you mentioned, and we’ll fix the ugly stretched out text on the tile in the upcoming Windows Phone 8 version.

    In the interest of keeping things simple by minimizing the number of settings, though, we hope that the text on the tile optimized Windows Phone 8 works for you and doesn’t require a new setting to customize the font size.

    Thanks again!

    -David
