Badge count update

It seems that the badge count that indicates tasks for today only syncs when the app is manually opened. Is that normal behavior?

It would be nice to have it poll the server to check for changes so that the count is always current. That way, when I start my day, I can look at the icon and see I have "X" tasks to complete.

Another task service/app does this and it is very helpful!

Hello Jason,

Thank you for your report. We are actually looking into making the badge count more reliable and update periodically without having to open the app.


Best regards,
David

Mine doesn't even show the badge icon on Mac, even if it's open.

Hi Michael,

The badge is only available on the latest version of our Mac app (6.0.3). You can get it here: http://todoist.com/mac

Please note that the latest version of the Mac app requires at OSX version 10.8 or higher.


Regards,
Clyde

Thank you, this did work. I didn't realize the latest app wasn't in the app store.

This is awesome though!!

Thanks,
Mike
